Best of RMAF 2011: Peachtree Audio

  • The guys at Peachtree had one of the larger mezzanine rooms in which they showcased three systems of varying wallet damage.  Central to each was the Grand Pre, the (all-new) Grand Integrated and the tried and trusted iNova.  Team Peachtree’s verbal presentation was impressive in its slickness and head honcho David Solomon sure knows how to work a room.  I really like what these guys are doing with product convergence and there’s a LOT of stuff to see/hear in their room.  Kudos for the Peter Gabriel.  Peachtree also have some neat hush-hush stuff in the pipeline, but that was behind the curtain.  Exciting times.  (Oh yeah, the iDecco is being phased out.)
