Best Sound Systems



Martin Audio maximises consistent sound levels and coverage onsite while containing offsite noise levels to unite festival goers and the neighbourhood.

Headliners at Hyde Park are now performing at levels well in excess of 100dB which was unthinkable before

Jim King, Senior Vice President, Live Events, at AEG

I have to say the system delivered a really exciting muscular sound with absolute clarity for the daily crowds that were in excess of 100,000. There’s nothing that will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck as much as seeing an audience rocking as far as the eye can see.

Peter Racy, Gabisom Chief Engineer, Rock in Rio.

The technology behind Martin Audio MLA and Wavefront Precision allows us to deliver a full range intimate experience at 350m from the pyramid stage and yet within 50m of the edge of the arena, we can reduce the levels up to 15dB and even lower beyond. The accuracy of this system is unmatched; it’s like stepping through an invisible door as the sound rapidly fades around you.

Simon Honywill, Audio Consultant for Glastonbury.


Working with Martin Audio will also be a pleasant surprise for many new to the company.

You’ll enjoy a more personal relationship with Martin Audio with easy access to the management team, system design and technical experts. Our intention is to work in partnership with your festival production team to create a system that accomplishes your festival goals.

Couple this with a global network of committed rental partners and a proven track record, means the quality, performance and support for the system is assured.

All members of its management are approachable, down to earth, and they are service led, driven by its people and understanding that it’s about shared relationships and collaboration with customers.

Paul Timmins, Director, 22live

Strongest Line-Up

We are proud to say we have our strongest line-up of product in our history, delivering our signature sound and quality throughout. We can fulfil all of your needs from point source loudspeakers, constant curvature and line arrays to monitors, amplifiers, networking, and sound system design.

We had to control sound escape outside the venue to an unprecedented level, but with Martin Audio’s DISPLAY optimisation software the results were easy to obtain. Inside the audience field the audio experience was completely different to outside the perimeter. It was amazing how much sound pressure and quality was provided to avoid it leaking out.

Shuzo Fujii, Chairman, MSI Japan.
