- X-Line Advance compact vertical line array loudspeaker system receives PIPA international press award in the concert sound category
- Journalists from 100 dedicated special interest magazines from around the world were asked to cast their votes
“With the X‑Line Advance we channeled our concert sound expertise and R&D resources towards a product that has pushed the art and science of sound forward, rather than following the pack.”
More than 100 dedicated special interest magazines from all over the world voted for the best pro audio equipment and musical instruments of 2015/2016 in 38 categories. The official awards ceremony took place on April 7 at the Prolight + Sound show. This year, Electro-Voice received a PIPA award for the second time in a row: the X-Line Advance compact vertical line array loudspeaker system convinced the jury in the concert sound category. Introduced in spring 2015, X-Line Advance is gaining industry notice for providing a uniquely satisfying combination of precise, linear output, a best-in-class performance-to-size ratio and a user-friendly rigging system. Last year, EKX series loudspeakers from Electro-Voice prevailed over the competition in the portable sound category.
Guillermo Wabi, Product Manager for Concert Sound Systems with Electro-Voice, proudly accepted the award: “I’m thrilled that the X-Line Advance is honored with this prestigious award. With the X-Line Advance we channeled our concert sound expertise and R&D resources towards a product that has pushed the art and science of sound forward, rather than following the pack.”
