To take care of the sound for the event, the long term partner of the event, Corsinotti SAS& was once again on hand, but this year there was significant difference, with their new Martin Audio MLA Compact making its debut.
"This year I had the great pleasure of visiting Martin Audio in England with Stefano Rocchi', said Rinaldo, owner of Corsinotti SAS, 'and having had a demo of the products there, I was excited to see how MLA compact would work for us at this very important event.'
"We chose MLA Compact as the main PA for the event and its performance was just amazing. For the compact size of its speakers, the sound quality and power is unbelievable, and being able to optimise the performance using DISPLAY software was very useful. Intelligibility and purity of sound was very impressive."
