Adamson arrives in Australia on the Eight Day
AUSTRALIA: Eighth Day Sound’s Australian operation has expanded its inventory with the addition of new Adamson Systems E-Series and S-Series solutions. The A/V rental company, which also had offices in London and Los Angeles, has reportedly ‘invested heavily’ in the manufacturer’s system in recent years.
‘Having Adamson available globally has been a part of our strategy since day one,’ explained Eighth Day Sound executive VP, Jack Boessneck. ‘With the acclaim it is garnering around the world, we have to be prepared to meet the growing demand.’
The recent purchase comprises more than 140 loudspeakers and subwoofers from both the E-Series and S-Series. ‘The E-Series is a powerful addition to our system offerings in Australia,’ noted Damo Pryor, general manager of Eighth Sound Australia. ‘These products are a standard in the European festival circuit and are now exploding in North America. We’re proud to have been the first company to bring the complete range to the Australian market.’
To ensure that its team would be trained to use the new systems, several Eighth Day Australia team members travelled to the rental company’s global headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio, where they completed Adamson’s Applied Certification Programme training course along with a number of their international colleagues. This was an early opportunity to partake in the training programme, which officially launches in February 2017.
Following the training abroad and delivery of the new systems, Eighth Day Australia has already lined up plenty of events in which it plans to put the new Adamson systems to use. ‘I had the chance to work with E-Series products for the first time this year in a stadium application in the US. The PA threw for days, and we did the entire stadium without delays,’ said Tristan Johnson, lead system technician at Eighth Day Sound. ‘The new E119, designed with input from our team, had a shocking amount of power. I can’t wait to roll it out in Australia and show people what it’s capable of.’
‘We've had the chance to work with Eighth Day Sound globally for several years now. Their commitment to standardise their equipment offering with unmatched service across the globe makes them an industry leader,’ concluded Adamson Systems’ director of marketing and sales, James Oliver. ‘We're looking forward to exposing the Australian market to an alternative product currently only available with Eighth Day Sound.’
