UK - EM Acoustics will return to the Royal Armouries this month for the 2024 edition of PLASA Focus in Leeds. Following a very busy 12 months which included the launch of the R5, a return to the Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury and the ongoing expansion of its manufacturing facility, the EM Acoustics management team heads to the northern edition of the UK’s largest entertainment technology show with lots to share.

Visitors to PLASA Leeds can expect to see some of the familiar favourites in the EM Acoustics range plus the Reference Series, including the new R5.

“The R5 has proved to be an extremely popular product; an instant classic, in fact,” explains Greg Clarke, EM Acoustics’ brand manager. “Following a highly successful ISE, we’re focused on expanding our production capacity to meet growing demand and are continuing our R&D efforts to identify more opportunities for innovation and to further develop our product line.”

“As with the rest of the Reference family, the R5 offers very high-quality point-source audio, exceptional headroom and wonderful musicality,” continues Clarke. “The feedback we’ve received from sound designers and engineers is that they are finding the extended versatility of the smaller box extremely beneficial as part of wider design ecosystems.”

Indeed, the past year has seen several high-profile installations of EM Acoustics’ Reference and EMS Series loudspeakers, including Treetop Golf, an immersive adventure golf chain, and complete, front-to-back installations at the Theatre Royal, Plymouth and Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith. The second half of 2024 promises to be just as productive.

“We will be returning to the Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury this year with the HALO series, and there are several other major projects in the pipeline that we will to be able to share news on very soon,” says Clarke. “We also expect to announce a new product later this year, so we encourage show-goers to drop by the booth at PLASA Focus to find out more. We remain totally committed to this vital Northern show, and we look forward to meeting friends old and new”.

Visitors to PLASA Focus can meet the EM Acoustics team at stand N-C10 on 15 May.
