d&b V-Series on debut in Japan
There may have been other reasons; Yonekura launched the T-Series in similar fashion a few years ago, and although that event didn't draw as many people, the creeping success of the T-Series in Japan may be one reason why people paid more attention this time
"Also we were introducing our new sales director for Japan, Masayuki 'Mack' Miyamura. Although he is a well known figure in the industry, having previously represented a leading console manufacturer, his presence at our event was the ideal opportunity to consolidate his relationship with the industry in his new role.
Staged at the Shinagawa Intercity Hall in Tokyo on 20 September, Yonekura rigged a simple left/right array of seven V8 loudspeakers per side. "The system performed flawlessly," said visiting engineer Takuya Sugawara System tech engineer of MSI Japan, "We were all very impressed with the performance of the V system, it had that classic d&b voicing to which we have all become accustomed and a feature that makes our lives so much easier. It had considerable power for a small to mid-size line array. Perfect really."
