“We are thrilled to have these major companies join us this second time around in Nashville,” said Tom Kenny, co-editor of Mix. “It’s so important for the audience to hear immersive music played back as it was intended, and by building out a high-end 9.1.4 system, Universal Audio and Focal are offering a real opportunity for our audience to see, and hear, how good music can sound in this exciting new format.”

Following a morning of cool, insightful product demos from both companies, attendees can check out:
