SLS Speakers Selected by Digidesign, NARAS for Demos at NAMM

SLS's Ultra-High Fidelity Ribbon-Driver Loudspeakers To Be Used In High Traffic Areas (January 15, 2002)
SLS International, Inc. announced today that its ribbon-driver loudspeakers were selected by both Digidesign and the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS) for use in their demonstrations at NAMM's, the International Music Products Association, Winter Show in Anaheim Jan. 17-20.

A division of Avid Technology, Digidesign will use the speakers for its main stage, mini-main stage and one of its VIP suites, while NARAS will employ SLS speakers for its Grammy Producers Soundtable seminar.

Digidesign decided to use SLS's Professional, Universal SOLDIER and Studio line of speakers after receiving strong recommendation from industry professionals. SLS's product characteristics of fidelity, clarity, detail and ultra-low distortion will be exhibited in the most prominent areas of Digidesign's 20- by 90-foot booth.

"The first thing that came up when talking to folks about SLS is their ribbon-driver technology and the warmth of the sound from SLS speakers," said Brad Doran, technical engineer for events marketing with Digidesign. "I am personally anxious to hear the loudspeakers in our booth at NAMM as well."

NARAS also asked SLS to supply speakers at NAMM for its Grammy Producers SoundTable seminar, following the success the Recording Academy had in using SLS' products at its Audio Engineering Society (AES) 13th Annual Grammy Recording SoundTable Seminar in New York City last month. The audience included more than 500 industry professionals. Coordinators at the show noted an overwhelmingly positive response to SLS's technology and sound quality, and requested their participation at NAMM.

Attendance at NAMM's Winter Show in Anaheim will largely be made up of retail music store buyers, manufacturers, manufacturer representatives, distributors and publishers of the music products industry, professional audio, sound and lighting companies and commercial recording studios. Expected to become NAMM's largest and most successful show to date, the International Music Market is well known for its music and celebrity-attended events.

"This show addresses the needs of nearly 60 percent of our target audience," said John Gott, president of SLS International. "We've developed our patent-pending ribbon-drivers to achieve unprecedented sound quality with exceptional reliability at competitive costs. We expect to add to our fast-growing dealer and distributor base, and write many orders - in particular for our Universal Soldier line - from both U.S. and international buyers while at the show."
