KANAGAWA, Japan – October 2009 — MSI Japan is the latest PA rental company to join the L-ACOUSTICS Rental Network and take delivery of a complete K1/KUDO system and LA-RAK touring racks fitted with LA8 amplified controllers.

Originally becoming the first V-DOSC partner in Asia in 1998, MSI has enjoyed a long history with L-ACOUSTICS. For more than a decade the relationship between the companies has flourished, and MSI has become one of Japan and Asia’s leading sound companies. Eleven years after their initial contact, MSI was contacted by L-ACOUSTICS Founder Dr. Christian Heil and invited to France for a meeting about K1.

“I flew over to France with MSI Vice President Motoshige Nishio and listened to the K1 system at L-ACOUSTICS,” says MSI Director Shuzo Fujii. “The moment I heard the system, I immediately knew I would be buying it, and we were given the opportunity to become part of the pilot program.”

K1/KUDO system on Masaharu
Fukuyama’s tour

The K1 system made its Japanese — and, indeed, Asian — debut with the well-known male artist Masaharu Fukuyama, who has embarked on a three-month arena tour of the country. Official L-ACOUSTICS trainer and consultant Sherif el Barbari traveled to Japan to carry out some training with the new K1/KUDO system prior to the tour.

“Having just used the K1 system for the first time, I think it’s great!” said Fujii after the first concert. “It has the most advanced rigging system, which shortens the set up time for us and means we can do our job not only quickly but safely. As for sound quality, the mid-high for vocals is extremely smooth, and the sound was clear and full-bodied, even right at the back of the venue.

“K1 is definitely an upgraded version of V-DOSC — this system is able to bring out the small nuances of the sound while also being very powerful. As for K1-SUB and SB28, we’ve never managed to get such low, tight sound from any subs before. We’ve definitely made the right choice in purchasing the K1 system.”

L-ACOUSTICS’ new Rental Network is based on the Network Charter of three working principles:
– The assurance of worldwide systems availability with inventory thresholds for various rental segments
– The establishment of a new “K” universal standard to ensure performance and compatibility of systems
– The guarantee of qualified technicians to ensure standards of excellence through education
