ANAHEIM, California – Showcasing performances by some of rock and roll’s most iconic artists, the AUDIENCE Network’s “Guitar Center Sessions” television series has been a hit since first airing in 2010. To ensure that world-class audio is delivered to the live audience and the artists on stage, HARMAN’s JBL Professional PRX612M powered loudspeakers highlight the live sound system for the performances.
Held at the Vintage Room at Guitar Center’s Hollywood location, “Guitar Center Sessions” is hosted by Nic Harcourt and features the artists playing selections from their catalogs and discussing their careers and influences. A high-quality original music program that focuses on conversations and themes pertinent to the artist’s craft and creative process, “Guitar Center Sessions” provides artists with a highly credible platform to expose their music and stories to a large audience and furthers Guitar Center’s commitment to helping artists be heard in an ever-changing, uncertain music business. This season’s “Guitar Center Sessions” has included performances by Hoobastank, Papa Roach, Ben Folds Five, Meiko and Joe Walsh, with a performance by Jimmy Cliff scheduled to air on January 25.
“With such talented artists appearing on ‘Sessions’, it is crucial that they be supported on stage with world-class audio technology,” said Andy Flint, Senior Manager, Portable PA Marketing, JBL Professional. “We have seen the PRX612M adopted by countless successful musicians for their tours and installed in some of the world’s most prestigious live music venues. The PRX612M provides ‘Sessions’ with a level of sound quality that the program’s artists require and we are thrilled to be a part of this unique project!”
Utilizing tour-tested JBL Differential Drive® speaker technology, dbx Type IV™ limiting circuitry and Crown award-winning class-D amplifiers, the PRX612M delivers uncompromised performance in a package that is light, small and professional in both function and appearance. At the core of the PRX612M is a fully integrated DSP input section providing mic/line level input, selectable system EQ and a premium A/D converter for a maximum signal-to-noise ratio.
