SSL names HD Pro Audio as UK dealer for new Live console

Solid State Logic (SSL) has appointed HD Pro Audio as its Live console dealer in the UK.

HD Pro Audio specialises in delivering live sound expertise, quality equipment and complete solutions to installers and rental firms for major venues and large-scale live events, and describes itself as "a leading supplier of professional audio systems."

“We’re very happy to be involved with SSL in bringing this console to our UK clients,” commented Andy Huffer, HD Pro Audio sales director. “When I first heard about SSL doing a live console, I thought ‘here we go, another manufacturer giving an existing product a makeover and calling it the live version.’ Then I saw SSL Live at Musikmesse/Prolight + Sound and quickly realised that I was completely wrong and that HD Pro Audio had to be involved with this product.

"Building on the company’s established history of manufacturing high-quality analogue and digital mixing consoles, with rock-solid reliability for the demanding broadcast market, the SSL Live console is a force to be reckoned with. Beyond the outstanding control surface ergonomics, high channel count, routing flexibility and superlative audio quality, there are some unique features on this console that instantly make it a prime contender for a wide range of applications.”

Mike Banks, Solid State Logic’s UK sales manager, added: “A well-established distributor in the field, HD Pro Audio is the ultimate choice for establishing the Live console in the UK live and installation markets. HD Pro Audio’s reputation in the UK as the leading live sound provider precedes it, and its extensive customer base offers an unparalleled opportunity for SSL. We’re pleased they have signed on as our primary UK distributor and we look forward to working with them well into the future.”
