Now we wait with anticipation as it’s only a matter of time until this concept explodes globally. Audio-Technica equipment has been used at major events such as the US Grammy Awards, the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame and the Olympic Games for the last 25 years, and now we have an opportunity to support Music Feeds and Australian music, which is something we are very proud of”.
