The team does a phenomenal job bringing in top-tier AV professionals from the Northeast and delivering value to both clients and attendees,” said Larry Reagan, vice president sales, Pro Audio Technology. “This year, PRO's display will emphasize value by showing a system using the SCR-12sm two-way loudspeaker, a product equally suited to high resolution music reproduction as it is to the powerful dynamics of cinema soundtracks.”
Sapphire Marketing will also host two separate “Tech Talks” for dealers per below:
