SANTA MONICA, CALIF. (Dec. 3, 2012) — The Recording Academy® Producers & Engineers Wing® Manufacturer Council Breakfast was held on Sunday, Oct. 28, 2012, during the 133rd AES Convention. At their biannual meeting, the group of industry leaders — who are dedicated to the advancement of sound quality and to the overall growth of the professional audio industry — shared ideas and discussed issues with the goal of raising awareness about the importance of high-quality audio and the professionals who create it, as well as topics of mutual interest to pro audio manufacturers, retailers and the producers and engineers who use their products.
A key topic of conversation was the P&E Wing's recent partnership with the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) in debuting www.qualitysoundmatters.com, an online portal launching in early December 2012, aimed to promote enhanced consumer awareness of higher-quality sound for music.
