Petaluma, CA — August 1, 2014 — Point Source Audio (PSA), an innovator of the original and one-of-a-kind “Unbreakable Boom” miniature microphones, announced that its SERIES8 miniature microphones have been selected by famed musician, audio engineer and conductor Lou Mannarino for use in high profile performance applications including the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.
The SERIES8 microphones were specified by Mannarino’s distinguished New York production company L&M Sound & Light for applications in similarly prestigious institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Historical Society and New York Public Library, to name a few. L&M Sound & Light’s team of engineers and sound technicians has over 30 years of experience creating audio designs for the most esteemed musical artists, concert halls, theaters, museums and event spaces.
“We are blown away by your mics,” said Mannarino. “The SERIES8 mics stand alone thanks to excellent build quality, durability, and the X-connectors that offer easy wireless compatibility. In our world, people do not want to hear the amplification, they just want the natural sound of the speaker. The SERIES8 needs no improvement.”
The SERIES8 is available in three different styles: headset, earworn and lavalier. Created for use in broadcast, theater and live production, the miniature microphones have also been adopted by distinguished venues such as Universal Studios, the Kravis Center, and Shiki Theater Company Tokyo. The product line is similarly well suited to corporate applications and presentations, thanks to the sleek design and hands-free advantages.
“We’re delighted that the features of SERIES8 microphones have earned them a place in front of stage and screen icons at some of the finest concert and performance venues in the world,” said James Lamb, President for Point Source Audio. “From spoken word presentations to finely tuned falsettos, our microphones are ultra durable, wearable and most importantly enjoyable for people on both sides of the stage due in part to our rigorous testing and engineering standards.”
SERIES8 mics have set a new standard for performance and durability in a micro size capsule. While the mic elements measure a mere 2-4 mm in diameter, the mics’ robust features are unlike any others on the market today. The omnidirectional microphones feature 148dB max SPL with an “Unbreakable Boom” bendable to 360°. In addition, they are IP57 waterproof rated against water, sweat and makeup, and feature interchangeable X-connectors for wireless compatibility on the spot.
The SERIES8 cardioid microphones are an ideal solution for performers who require isolation from surrounding set noise or environmental acoustics. The cardioid mics perform best when placed just at the corner of the mouth, which also allows them to maintain an unobtrusive appearance when worn.
With an MSRP starting at $389, Point Source Audio’s SERIES8 miniature microphones are available for purchase at a number of resellers and distributors worldwide. More information about Point Source Audio’s various audio solutions can be found by visiting www.point-sourceaudio.com.
