70 Years in Live Sound with RCF

If you make it to 70 in the live sound business, you must be doing something right. Italian loudspeaker manufacturer RCF began operations in 1949; the company started out manufacturing ribbon mics and other transducers—serving as one of the first European OEM suppliers for international brands—but as concert sound grew more amplified, eventually launched systems for various markets under its own brand, all along, continuing to design and refine components in house. Browse through the slideshow for some highlights from RCF’s long history.
