Hungarian-based TéDé Rendezvények has invested in a Martin Audio Wavefront Precision Series (WPC) system. The order, which included iKON iK42 amplifiers, was placed with the manufacturer’s territorial distributor, BG Event Kft.
The new PA debuted at the 2-day Bősi Motoros Találkozó (Bősi Motorcycle Meeting), with 10 bands appearing in front of 2,000 people where it proved extremely popular. “We received a lot of positive feedback from visiting technicians, many of them amazed by the sound of the system. It not only delivered power but pure, highly intelligible sound in every way.”
According to Balázs Szentiványi, Purchasing Manager, BG Event Kft., the idea of upgrading the rental company’s inventory came about as soon as Martin Audio announced the Wavefront Precision family.
“TéDé already owned a W8LM Mini system and since they are on a healthy growth path they were in need of a larger PA,” he said.
Tamás Dávid takes up the story, recalling that he and members of his technical team had accompanied Balázs toMartin Audio’s open day in September 2018. “I heard the WPC system there for the first time and decided immediately to change my old system to this new series,” he said.
He was no stranger to the Martin Audio signature sound, having purchased a W8VDQ and WS218X subwoofers back in 2011 which, with the addition of the W8LM, had given him a festival system. He also has MA12K amplifiers presently driving his subwoofers, which will eventually be upgraded to iK42’s.
Tamásis also aware of the enormous profile Martin Audio has built at major Hungarian festivals such as Sziget, which has made it an in-demand brand for promoters. “Many technicians now view Martin Audio as the best example of quality,” he said.
As such, he is confident that the Martin Audio WPC system will give him a competitive edge over other brands. “It delivers enormous sound pressure level for the money and a more precise sound experience for those in the audience area. The main advantage is the controllable resolution of the speakers, while the Display software is easy to use and fast. The sound is impressive, convincing and clear — you can hear every little detail. We now hope the new WPC will help us to win more work during the festival season.”
Summing up the investment, Balázs Szentiványi concluded: “From the price / performance viewpoint there was really no other option for TéDé.”
