With offices also in New York, ACIR Professional provides complete audio system solutions for rental or installation to the tour sound and theater sound, nightclub, corporate A/V and house of worship markets.

With over 80 guests in attendance, including several of the manufacturers and distributors they represent like Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. and SK MacDonald (Shure), staff from ACIR Pro demonstrated complete sound and lighting system set ups in several areas of their premises which included d&b, and Worx audio line array systems, Yamaha PM5D-RH, M7CL, and LS9 digital consoles as well as Yamaha IF Series speakers, P and Tn amps.

The new space will also be used for product training, with a mid-July date tentatively set for a microphone session with Bob Heil. “We are quite impressed with the expansion of the ACIR Pro facility,” states Bob Quinones, district manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. “The three partners are well established within the audio community they serve and we welcome them to the Yamaha Commercial Audio dealer network.”

With recent advancements in technology, it is important to stay at the forefront of product availability. “Designing a sound system isn‘t just a science; it takes highly qualified, talented individuals to ensure that the end user customer is kept in mind,” states partner Tom Young. “Attention to details by our staff puts ACIR Pro in a class of its own.” Young is also the live sound engineer for Tony Bennett and an independent sound system designer. The facility also houses a contracting product demonstration area for installation systems design.

The company also provides lighting packages from full conventional rigs to intelligent lighting. “We can fulfill the needs of any musical requirement be it band, production or theatrical,” states co-owner Ed DiBona. “The condition of our equipment is pristine including our expansive assortment of vintage gear.”
