This is a very interesting rig for a "near live" performance. Hope there is a trend there. The article seems to be written by someone who has no idea how unnecessarily filthy much of live performance is.

When I started my company as a DJ service, all my repeat business, and new clients, were based on the SQ of my rig. :)

I agree with Unity
I was a DJ'ing in the 80s and I can tell you that sound quality mattered...always did, more than any light show or smoke machine. Furthermore we spent countless hours practising our mixing technique because it was done with vinyl and our ears... no software or any other electronic aids.
We rolled into the banquet hall or Church hall (remember those days??) we 3 vans. Base bins, mids, horns etc and sound checks to ensure great sound.
Between the amps, preamps, sound board not to mention four 1200's and of course the mixer and hundreds of feet of cables it was an all day preparation.
We were 5 guys in total and made a pretty penny.
Later when I became a club DJ the sound system was even more of an issue.

Bottom line...the music mattered and missing beats in the mix was amateurish and intolerable.

Cheers

Most don't. SPL and speaker wattage matters. I never stay very long at parties, I get a listening fatigue or music gets too loud as the night progresses. There is a lot of junk out there pretending to be PA suitable for music.

Permanent installations are much better sounding, they want to keep partons coming back and staying longer.
