“The Neve 8424 has big functionality and is a dream from a writing and production perspective. The inbuilt 1073s and the amazing sounding DIs, alongside sublime usability and connectivity to your interface and DAW, makes it easy to achieve a fast workflow to capture all the energy of a writing session.”

The Belly of the Beast, a South London studio, was the first in the UK to install the Neve 8424 at the end of 2020. This super high-end recording location has played host to a string of eclectic UK artists over the years, from Dizzee Rascal! to Arctic Monkeys.

Technical Audio Devices (TAD) has added to its Evolution speaker line a stand-mount version of the Evolution One tower, aptly named Micro Evolution One. Check out our latest review! https://hometheaterhifi.com/reviews/speaker/bookshelf/tad-me1-stand-mount-speaker-review/ #tad #speakerreview Pro Audio Design, TAD Laboratories
Photos from the House of Stereo sponsored room at the Florida Audio Expo featuring the TAD Evolution ONE loudspeakers and a bevy of components from T+A along with VPI and Van den Hul. Reposted because it seems that Facebook wiped them out when I added the video footage of them playing. Check out the video post for the full description. Cool doesn’t begin to describe this room fully! Florida Audio Expo Pro Audio Design TAD Laboratories VPI Industries T+A elektroakustik Van den Hul USA
Popping back later into the Pro Audio Design Inc room, they had switched out the Evolution Two loudspeakers for the TAD Compact Reference One stand-mounts. There always are a handful of speakers, regardless of the show, that I will routinely come back and hear to recalibrate myself to what good sound actually is. TAD’s CR1 is one of those speakers and it did it again without fail. There is something extra special about the sound of TAD’s Reference Series speakers, they just always sound so alive. The top dog at Pro Audio Design inc is Dave Malekpour. We chatted for a good while and I discovered that his company wasn’t just chosen by chance to distribute TAD. He has a long history of producing professional monitoring systems using TAD pro drivers through his other company Augspurger Monitors. It was heartening to hear Dave talk about his passion for the brand, his long history in audio in general, and his ideas for a steady, balanced growth plan for TAD in the US market. Here’s hoping for much success. Florida Audio Expo TAD Laboratories Pro Audio Design
The second room featuring almost all TAD equipment was set up by Pro Audio Design Inc, TAD’s new US distributor. As a fan of the brand it was great to see that TAD was officially back in the US market after a roughly 2 year absence. The room featured TAD’s new Evolution Two loudspeakers ($19,995 per pair). These are the smaller sibling to the larger Evolution One that were upstairs. The new speakers do not use TAD’s concentric tweeter/midrange driver, instead going for a more traditional 2.5 way design using a 1” Beryllium tweeter within a custom waveguide and two 6.5” aramid composite woofers. The speakers also sport a novel ducted porting system at their base. The main control and power electronics were also all by TAD, comprised of the D1000X SACD player/DAC ($25,000), and the M1000S power amp($18,500). Included was a Wolf Alpha 3SX audio server (starting at $9,250) with full system cabling by Synergistic Research. A nicely balanced and full sounding system here with very good bass punch and great overall imaging. Florida Audio Expo TAD Laboratories Pro Audio Design
This is the first of two rooms that featured TAD loudspeakers. This room was sponsored by House of Stereo and Wolf Audio Systems. The speakers are the TAD Evolution One ($29,900 per pair) that have been out for a couple of years now. They were teamed up with a bevy of control and amplification gear courtesy of T+A Audio of Germany. There was also a Wolf Alpha 3SX Audio Server (starts at $9,250), a Van den Hul phono preamp, and a beastly looking turntable from VPI sporting twin tonearms. All lovely stuff to look at and listen to! Florida Audio Expo TAD Laboratories VPI Industries Wolf Audio Systems T+A elektroakustik Pro Audio Design

Howdy! My name is Mark E Clason. I am the music teacher at Rosamond High School in Rosamond CA, a small town in the Antelope Valley, on the western lip of the Mojave Desert. I have been tasked with developing a new course @ RHS called "Studio Recording." This is a new Fine Arts elective. I need gear and my district has no money for me. If your company would donate equipment for my fledgling program, I would gladly post the largest poster you provide in my classroom promoting Pro Audio Design and/or the brands you provide. I would also attempt to get a letter from the district acknowledging your donation for your tax purposes (charitable contributions). I'm going to need preamps (computer interfaces), microphones, mic stands, headphones, XLR cables, etc. for about 30 students. Since I’m dreaming, I might as well include control desks, desktop computers, monitor speakers, and acoustic treatment. Right? These materials would stay in the classroom and NOT go home with the students. I plan on constructing a very simple vocal/recording booth from PVC pipes and moving blankets for use in the classroom. Your thoughts? By the way, this class will be held in my Band Room, so the acoustic treatment would do double-duty. Support the audio engineers of tomorrow! Thank you for your time and thoughtful consideration! Mark E Clason, BA MS Rosamond High School Music Appreciation, Studio Recording, Band 661.478.7535 [email protected]
