When Led Zeppelin played the 02 arena for their famous comeback concert, the Daily Telegraph in the UK reported that they had feedback problems during the first number. Clearly absolutely no-one - not even Jimmy Page - is exempt from the perils associated with sound reinforcement technology, which just shows how careful you have to be in selecting your speakers. Its also worth remembering that all the artistic integrity in the world means nothing if your audience cant stand the sound youre making. At the end of the day, even a classical ensemble is in show business, and its vital to respect your audience by making the sound as good as it possibly can be. Fortunately, it really isnt that difficult anymore. There are plenty of good systems available at affordable prices - the real investment needed is one of time, to make sure that you have the right equipment for the task, and that you get it set up in the right way each and every time you use it.
We hope this guide has given you the knowledge you need to make the right choices. If it hasnt, let us know! But for now, have fun exploring the subtle world of sound.
