The 2004 Billboard Latin Music Awards, held at the Miami Arena on April 29, 2004, employed numerous Audio-Technica microphones, specified by Michael Abbott, audio coordinator for the awards show, who has used the mics on broadcast events including the Grammy Awards and the MTV Latin America Video Music Awards.
“I can recommend Audio-Technica microphones to a wide demographic of engineers with the confidence that they’re suitable for a variety of applications because of the clarity, the response and the low handling noise,” Abbott said. “A-T has really gone out of their way to interface with the end-users. So for me, it’s an easy fit; it just benefits everybody.”
Abbott employed more than 50 A-T mics for this event, incorporated in onstage performances by Oscar d’Leon, Alicia Keys and Luis Fonsi. Models featured included the Artist Elite® 5000 Series UHF wireless systems; Artist Elite hardwired AE5400, AE5100, AE3000 and AE2500; and the AT4050 and ATM25.
