Jensen Transformers President Bill Whitlock will present a 75-minute tutorial at the Sound Marketing Tech Expo in Chicago, Illinois on May 6, 2014.
Whitlock's session will focus on effective audio grounding and signal interface design to keep systems free from hum and buzz. Whitlock explains: "I firmly believe that the technical concepts in this class are best taught using analogies and intuition rather than complex mathematics. In my opinion, the audio business, especially the audiophile portion, is simply awash in misinformation and bad advice! Therefore, the remedial part of my task is to debunk myths perpetuated as "tradition" among practitioners and as unintentional, but often self-serving, misinformation from manufacturers."
The expertise Whitlock shares has received accolades from those who have attended his previous presentations. Steve Roth of Roth Electric Sound, Michigan: "Even though I've been before and drove five hours to hear Bill, I may drive five more hours and go to Chicago to hear him again. I cannot recommend this heartily enough to everyone anywhere NEAR Chicago. This is the absolute shiznit if you wish to understand this subject!"
