d&b audiotechnik supplies new Y-Series to Neumann&Müller. Five-year cooperation agreed.

d&b audiotechnik is boosting its cooperation with Neumann&Müller (N&M) Event Technology with a five-year agreement. N&M bring to life the high-quality events with state-of-the-art equipment. The agreement between the companies involves the supply of loudspeakers from d&b’s newest range the Y-Series.

“We are proud of this further expansion of our long-standing business relationship with N&M. The new Y-Series ideally complements the d&b equipment already used by the company”, says Jürgen Wilhelm, Sales Director D.A.CH. at d&b audiotechnik.

Over the next five years d&b will supply loudspeakers to N&M including the Y-Series line array modules and the corresponding cardioid subwoofer Y-SUB (suitable for flown arrays). The scope of supply also includes d&b’s newest amplifier the D80.

“The refinement of the sound properties in the case of the Y-Series point sources, as well as the line array modules, signifies a new milestone for us particularly for sound systems under difficult acoustic conditions”, states Michael Mandel, Technical Manager at N&M. “Other benefits include the passive cardioid function of the subwoofers and the reduced transport volumes of the systems.

“All of my colleagues, whether working in the stockroom or logistics, as a structural planner or as a technician on site, will be pleased about the reduced weight,” noted Mandel, adding, “The small form factor in this performance category and the elegant design are obvious assets - for our clients as well as guests at an event.”

Since the beginning of their 30 years relationship, the two companies have cooperated closely on the development of new technologies and products, which have benefited both.
