Last week SSR London & Definition Group hosted an exclusive event with Funktion One’s Tony Andrews and John Newsham.
Tony Andrews is sought after the world over as a speaker and has received lifetime achievement awards (amongst others) for his contribution to live sound and speaker design. John Newsham is Tony’s right hand man and has been at Tony’s side throughout the development of what is now considered by most in live concert/nightclub sound circles to be the finest range of speaker systems in the world.
Tony focused his talk around realising, understanding and actually hearing the real difference between different sound cards, mixing desks, amplifiers and ultimately speaker systems. There was also an opportunity to hear a number of different Funktion One systems on the night which explored what goes into producing and reinforcing audio signals to the highest standards.
Tony also offered his personal advice on the use of line array systems and their validity in the live sound industry. He then played a selection of different tracks on the Funktion One’s to showcase the different responses you can get from different types of music.
We would like to say a big thank-you to everyone who came along to the event, and to Tony & John for giving some time out of their busy schedule to come and talk to our students & guests about quality audio. The event was full to capacity and the talk was really well received by everyone and we hope to keep a good relationship with Funktion One for the future.
The event was filmed and will be available to watch via the website soon, keep checking for updates.
