SSR Manchester - Acoustics master class from PA giants L-Acoustics
Acoustics master class from PA giants L-Acoustics
SSR students were very lucky to have the PA system giants L-Acoustics visit in February. David Brooks flew in from Paris and Stuart Down came up from the UK office to present a seminar on PA system design as part of the live sound course. This is the first time L-Acoustics have delivered any such seminar outside the AES/EBU in the USA.

Stuart Down said:
"We were very pleased to be asked by Jay Beard to conduct a seminar at SSR. It was great to see that SSR is giving the students who are interested in the live sound industry real hands on experience where they can be exposed to state of the art equipment and benefit from the experience of engineers and manufacturers who play a key role in the development of pro sound systems in the touring industry. We were very proud to have been able to take part in this process and look forward to visiting again in the near future."

SSR Head of Live Sound Jay Beard said:
"L-Acoustics are such a highly regarded company and have much respect in the industry, it’s wonderful to have their full support of the course."
