UK - Reproduced Sound (RS) celebrates its 30th anniversary this year with a two-day conference at the NEC, Birmingham, on 14-15 October.

Organised by the Electro-Acoustics Group of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA), the event partially coincides with the Institute's 40th anniversary conference at the same venue, which is being held on 15-16 October.

Paul Malpas, RS chairman, said, "We are really excited to have the event integrated into the IOA 40th anniversary event. Not only does this mark two important milestones in acoustics and electro-acoustics, but it also gives our regular and new guests and speakers at RS the opportunity to see into the breadth of fascinating areas also covered by IOA members and conferences.

"Perhaps even more exciting is the prospect that IOA members and other experts from across the acoustics fields will have a chance to explore where these fields have always overlapped into electro-acoustics subjects. I am hoping to see some particularly healthy cross-pollination in speech and hearing, musical acoustics, environmental acoustics (e.g. relating to live and amplified events) and, of course, building acoustics. RS as a conference has always believed and explained how audio solutions include an acoustic space at one or both ends of the chain.

"We look forward to welcoming keynote speaker Leo Beranek back, last at RS in Cardiff in 2010, whom I am sure will support this kingpin of RS philosophy. There are so many more topics to look forward to, including speech intelligibility (a perennial of RS, deservedly so), audio quality and sound field control, plus what promises to be a fascinating demonstration to demystify the techniques used in electro-acoustic enhancement systems over the last 50 years."

Since its inception Reproduced Sound has become renowned for bringing together some of the friendliest and most knowledgeable sound specialists in the world.

Paul added, "Reproduced Sound conferences have always represented the cutting edge of modern audio and acoustics in an informal environment where attendees freely mingle and welcome the sharing of insight and information.

"Over the years they've become firmly established as a 'must attend' event for many people from a wide background in acoustics and audio sectors, from acoustic scientists to audio system designers, and from consulting engineers to venue operators, to name just a few, and this year's conference promises to be one of the best yet.

"Once bitten, most of us come back year after year, to refresh our friendships and inspire our minds."
