During each of the major conventions and trade shows, the editors of Pro Audio Review and Pro Sound News, with assistance from sister publications Audio Media and Mix, scour the exhibit halls for new and noteworthy products. Gear and software that show particular merit are singled out for the ProSoundNetwork Best of Show Awards. All products debuting at a given event are eligible. ProSoundNetwork.com is the joint web presence for both the PAR and PSN titles.
"We are honored to receive a prestigious ProSoundNetwork Best In Show award for the dbx PMC Personal Monitor Controller," said Noel Larson, Market Manager for Portable PA, Tour and Recording. "We created the PMC to be a useful performance tool for on-stage musicians, who now have the means to easily dial in their own mix exactly the way they want to hear it.
The dbx Personal Monitor Controller uses a standard Harman Blu-link audio bus, for example from the dbx TR1616 Networked Audio Module or any BSS(r) Soundweb(tm) London networked digital processing system, to control up to 16 channels of digital audio (of any of the up to 256 channels available on Blu-Link). The PMC can be configured to operate with either 48kHz or 96kHz D/A conversion. It can be used with traditional on-stage monitor systems, powered personal monitors, in-ear monitors, digital snakes and headphones and dbx's Wizard system allows for quick setup and control.
The dbx PMC Personal Monitor Controller will be available October 2012 at an estimated street price of $499
