Helen & John Meyer have organized a special tour for AIA East Bay! Included will be a behind-the-scenes look at the factory, a sound presentation in the award-winning Pearson Theater and a reception hosted by Meyer Sound.
Include on the tour will be a walk through the “Luna and Mercury” spaces where we will learn about the design of Meyer Sound’s LIBRA panels. We’ll then walk to Saturn, an assembly area (design/build by Levitch Associates), to learn about the manufacture of Meyer’s key components. In the Pearson Theatre, designed by Wong Logan Architects, we’ll learn about Constellation technology–which has major applications for architecture– as well as how the theater was designed and built. The tour includes a demonstration of the Meyer Sound products.
About Meyer Sound
In 1979, John and Helen Meyer established Meyer Sound to create and support high-quality products for sound reinforcement and recording, designed to meet the real challenges faced by audio practitioners. Today, the company’s history shows a track record of more than 30 years of innovation, quality, performance and support.
Meyer Sound has more than 300 employees at its Berkeley, Calif., headquarters and satellite offices, including one of the largest engineering staffs (in proportion to company size) in the audio industry. International sales and support are supplied by more than half a dozen offices around the globe. The company works closely with professionals in all areas of sound reinforcement, gathering information on customers’ needs and providing the tools, training, technical support and information to enable the best experience possible for sound system users and audiences alike. Meyer Sound products are manufactured entirely at its Berkeley factory, where high technology is combined with hand craftwork. By performing core processes in house, the company is able to exercise the control to insure its quality standards are met and that each unit is exactly the same as the last.
