Morris Purchases More Than 500 Pieces of d&b audiotechnik Equipment

ArrayProcessing and NoizCalc Among Unique Features  

Morris has added to its warehouse repertoire by purchasing 578 new pieces of d&b audiotechnik equipment. This investment will allow Morris to further engage with clients in the touring industry, as well as take on more live events and continue to make an impact in the variety of services it offers through its Integration division. 

“We chose to work with d&b audiotechnik because of their technical ingenuity and because their service location in North Carolina will help us do great work for our clients,” said David Haskell, Morris President. “We’re excited to be able to offer d&b equipment, which is recognized around the world as one of the leaders in professional premium audio technology.” 

The d&b audiotechnik equipment includes a variety of unique features, including ArrayCalc, ArrayProcessing, and NoizCalc. The optional ArrayProcessing function within the ArrayCalc simulation software V8 incorporates powerful filter algorithms that calculate and optimize the sonic performance of a d&b line array over an entire listening area. ArrayProcessing ensures that every member of the audience benefits from the same remarkable quality of sound by enhancing the spectral consistency, with a defined level distribution, to achieve a consistent tonal balance for each listener. NoizCalc allows audio engineers to provide a predictable, precise performance by controlling how far the sound is emitted from live open-air events.

“ArrayCalc and NoizCalc are real game-changers for us in the industry,” said Danny Rosenbalm, Morris CEO. “It’s about offering our clients the very best in production, whether that’s a one-time live concert event, an ongoing tour or a fixed installation at a church. The level at which we can specify how the audio is delivered through this d&b audiotechnik equipment tackles some of the biggest challenges our team faces when assessing how to create the best experience.”

"Back when d&b audiotechnik first opened U.S. operations in the 1990s, we understood Morris as an interesting company. What David Haskell and the Morris team have done since then has been impressive,” said Colin Beveridge, d&b audiotechnik General Manager U.S. “We are proud to be a part of their vision going forward. Morris is ultimately a part of the d&b family, and we look forward to a successful and growing partnership with them well into the future.”

Morris’ full line of new d&b audiotechnik inventory includes 124 D80 amplifiers, 176 J-Series speakers, 66 V-Series speakers, 32 stage monitors, and 22 DS10 Audio network bridges.

Founded in 1981 and based in Backnang, Germany, d&b audiotechnik specializes in acoustic systems and has operations worldwide. The company develops and produces high-quality sound systems for mobile and permanently installed applications.
