Peachstate Audio Fall 2019 Seminars Recap

A huge part of our marketing efforts are focused on manufacturer-led seminars throughout the year. We have these events roughly once a month in the Spring and Fall and offer educational topics or training sessions that are relevant and timely. Whether it be something customers have requested, a new product launch, or a line of products that are in high-demand, we want to make sure we bring the absolute best information and products to our customers. 
This fall has proven to be our most successful stretch of seminars ever based on attendance and audience feedback. First up, in August we hosted a D-Live training session with Allen & Heath. Next, we welcomed Yamaha in September for a condensed version of their Audioversity program. In October we had CHAUVET come to present "How To Light A Stage" and then finished the month off with RCF to help them celebrate their 70th Anniversary. Read on for a mini-recap of each event!

Next Level DJ Seminar Recap

On Thursday, March 8th Peachstate Audio hosted a DJ Seminar featuring manufacturers from Pioneer DJ, RCF, Sennheiser, and ADJ. This event was focused towards DJs who want to take their business to the next level by improving their skills through training and equipment knowledge.

To kick off the event, Steve Wingo of Sennheiser presented on Proper Gain Staging. This targeted a frequent issue that DJs run into, feedback and distortion. 
After laying down the basics, Steve transitioned to the product presentation of the new XSW-D Wireless. These simple, easy to use sets essentially eliminate the need for cables using 2.4 GHz connections between a portable transmitter and receiver. For a DJ, the Vocal and XLR Base sets are particularly useful. For more information about this line of products, check out the quick videos below.
