GERMANY: HK Audio has reported that 2007 saw record success for its COHEDRA and COHEDRA Compact line array systems.

Meanwhile, the company is planning to showcase the new FIRNET Controller and a fresh amp rack design for the COHEDRA systems at this year's Pro Light+Sound Expo in Frankfurt, writes David Davies.

Christian Stumpp, head of international sales for the HK Audio Concert Sound and Install Sound divisions, commented: "Last year in 2007 we were able to solidify and expand upon the double-digit growth we experienced in 2006. With new users and installations in many countries, in addition to our home market of Germany, we have been able to expand our circle of users in the hotly contested European market as well. We are especially gratified by the rapid growth and success of our users on the Spanish mainland. The Canary Islands have been very well-equipped for some time already by the substantial COHEDRA User Network there. Denmark and Russia also experienced major growth this past year."

"In 2007, quite a number of our international users continued to invest heavily in their HK Audio Line Array Systems, and it's rare to see any of our line array systems on the second-hand market," added Thomas Adt, HK's concert sound sales manager for the German market. "That shows that our customers are very satisfied with their purchase decisions because they regularly generate a healthy return on investment."

In other HK Audio news, the company has revealed that it will be presenting the new FIRNET Controller and a new amp rack design for the COHEDRA systems at this year's Pro Light & Sound Expo in Frankfurt. HK Audio will also be hosting regular COHEDRA, ConTour array and ConTour Series demos and seminars at the ProStage, located in front of Hall 8.
