DPA Microphones and Lectrosonics to Present Wired & Wireless Microphone Masterclass at Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas

USA – On Tuesday 5th June, 2018 at Club Vinyl at The Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, DPA Microphones and Lectrosonics will co-host a day of wired and wireless microphone masterclasses. The masterclass is free to audio professionals for the benefit of learning and networking with their peers.

These two manufacturers specialise in providing high-quality solutions for professional sound engineers to help them achieve the best results possible for a variety of applications including live sound, film, broadcast and theatre.

Hosted by Eric Stahlhammer of DPA Microphones and Kelly Fair of Lectrosonics, the masterclass on wired and wireless microphones will be held from 9:30am to 4:30pm, with presentations from each of these manufacturers. From 9:45am to 12 noon, Kelly Fair from Lectrosonics will present his masterclass on FCC re-pack, frequency co-ordination, antenna systems & antenna usage and a brief product overview. Then, lunch will be provided. From 1:00pm to 4:00pm, Eric Stahlhammer from DPA will present a masterclass on microphone technology for high performance venues.

We are looking forward to taking a deep dive into how a great microphone can help change the game in performance venues,” says Eric Stahlhammer, regional sales manager at DPA Microphones. “We often forget to consider that the conversion of acoustic to electrical energy is the most critical part of the sound chain. We can only manipulate what we have captured. Starting with great technique and the best microphone for the job is something we are excited to demonstrate and discuss in Las Vegas.”

We all know how challenging the RF environment has become for wireless mics and in ear monitoring systems," says Kelly Fair, Western regional sales manager and “One of the Fanatics” at Lectrosonics. “That’s why it’s important for us to discuss the application of sound fundamentals of RF management and antenna, and RF distribution techniques. We are especially excited to do this in a masterclass setting in Las Vegas – one of the most difficult RF environments I have come across.”

Club Vinyl is located inside The Hard Rock Hotel at 4455 Paradise Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89169. To sign up for this free event, please register at
