Belgium: Last month, AED Rent confirmed an initial investment in 80 PL380_s as it upgrades its rental stock. The company is the first European customer for QSC Audio_s new PowerLight 3 Class D amplifier which was shown for the first time at this year_s ProLight+Sound expo in Frankfurt, writes Anthony Lord.

AED specialises in providing dry-rental support uniquely to production and rental companies rather than end users. Managing director of AED Rent, Eddy van Nuffel, says that the new amplifier was earmarked for purchase as soon as it was announced, and they began beta testing back in March. _We conducted listening tests and the amplifier sounded extremely musical, with impressive Class D efficiency right across the frequency spectrum,_ van Nuffield reports.

The 8,000W PL380 combines a pair of 4,000-watt Class-D amplifier channels with QSC_s PowerLight power supply to serve up more than twice the audio horsepower of any previous 2U PowerLight amplifier.

Rental and production companies in Belgium have already been quick to take note of this sizeable investment as they strive to make their own inventories compatible with that of AED Rent.
