Resurface mixing console marketplace launches
WORLD: Resurface, an online professional audio mixing technology marketplace, has launched. The global platform aims to connect buyers and sellers of professional mixing consoles and has been set up by a pair of pro audio veterans with more than 50 years of combined industry experience, Ben Nemes and Tim Hurrell.
‘After many years in this industry, we were very aware that – whilst digital systems have been an industry standard for over 20 years – the secondary market for this technology and all related services is so highly fragmented that it doesn’t function,’ explained Mr Hurrell. ‘All high-value equipment purchases represent assets that owners periodically want to upgrade, cross-grade, dispose of or acquire in a secondary market. Occasionally, audio professionals simply need to understand the current market value of what they own. We’ve understood from many customers and resellers in this field that there’s a natural demand for this function that’s not currently being met.’
‘With audio technology being so highly-specialist in nature, buyers and sellers often require assistance with commissioning and decommissioning, shipping, installation, training and with finding freelance operational talent,’ added Mr Nemes. ‘With the combination of our services and supporting knowledge, we’re offering tangible benefit to customers making their living at the highest end of the professional audio community.’
