The mipa Awards are the result of ballots submitted by 107 music and audio magazines from around the world, and are given out each year at a ceremony held during the Musikmesse/Prolight + Sound exposition that takes place each spring in Frankfurt, Germany.
“M’elodie has been enormously successful from the very first time we showed it,” says Meyer Sound Director of Marketing Rachel Archibald, “and we are honored that the worldwide music and audio press have recognized M’elodie as a significant contribution. We feel we’ve built a great set of tools with the MILO family of loudspeakers, and it is gratifying that all of the family members have received mipa Awards.”
The celebration was heightened further by the fact that both Meyer Sound founders, President/CEO John Meyer and Executive Vice President Helen Meyer, were in attendance at this year’s Prolight + Sound show. Reflecting the company’s increasing profile and success in Europe, the Meyer Sound stand, the company’s largest ever at Prolight + Sound, was jammed full with attendees for the duration of the show.
“Meyer Sound listens when those in the field tell us what they need, then we do our research and build the best products we can to satisfy their requirements,” says John Meyer. “M’elodie epitomizes that approach, and we are pleased to have it validated with a mipa award.”
