Event Electronics
The Event story starts almost twenty years ago alongside the 'project studio' boom of the late 1980's and into the early 1990's. Russell Palmer, a former executive at Alesis, who's ADAT system was an instrumental factor in the empowering of artists at that time, identified the market need for a relatively low cost, high performance studio monitoring system and thus Event Electronics was born. Russell worked closely with Event's engineering team with the singular focus of identifying the deficiencies present in the smaller reference monitors that were the only affordable option for most audio engineers at the time. After extensive research and development, coupled with hours upon hours of critical listening, Event finally realized its vision: The 20/20 nearfield studio monitor.
