AES 145 Meet The Judges! Wolfgang Klippel

AES 145 Meet The Judges! Wolfgang Klippel

Wolfgang Klippel studied electrical engineering at the University of Technology in Dresden, in the former East Germany, where his initial studies focused on speech recognition. Afterwards, he joined a loudspeaker company in the eastern part of Germany where he was engaged in transducer modelling, acoustic measurement and psychoacoustics. He later returned to his studies and received a Ph.D in Technical Acoustics in 1987.

After spending a post-doctoral year at the Audio Research Group in Waterloo, Canada and working at Harman/JBL in Northridge, CA, he returned to Dresden in 1997 and founded Klippel GmbH, a company that develops novel control and measurement systems dedicated to loudspeakers and other transducers.

Dr. Klippel has also been engaged as Professor of Electro-acoustics at the University of Technology in Dresden since 2007. His papers and tutorials on loudspeaker modeling and measurement – particulary those on large signal behaviour and physical distortion mechanisms – are considered reference works in the field.

AES 145 Meet The Judges! EveAnna Manley

AES 145 Meet The Judges! EveAnna Manley

EveAnna Manley grew up in Atlanta, Georgia and was definitely one of those stereotypical Band Geeks playing clarinet, saxophones, and a little but of trumpet. At Columbia University she continued her music studies which steered her into the music industry. Inspired by her father who had once owned Ampeg in the late 1960's, she found a job starting at the bottom-most rung on the ladder learning to solder and assemble vacuum tube amplifiers in Southern California. She quickly got into the technical side of things testing and assisting new designs into production as well as implementing important business control systems in the young company such as quality control procedures, inventory control, and purchasing systems, all analog in the early 1990's! After David Manley retired to France in the mid-1990's, EveAnna took over the Manley company doubling its turnover in the first year. Her first solo designs were the enduring Manley VOXBOX and the intriguing Manley STINGRAY stereo integrated power amplifier. She has led a loyal team of engineers and production staff at Manley Labs for over 25 years to continue to produce one of the world's premier brands of high end vacuum tube equipment for recording and mastering studios as well as audiophiles around the globe.

AES 145 | Meet The Sponsors! Auralex

AES 145 | Meet The Sponsors! Auralex
We are thrilled that Auralex Acoustics will be joining us again as sponsors of the student competitions!
 
Auralex Acoustics® was founded over 20 years ago on the belief that there had to be a much better alternative to the expensive acoustic foam panels available at that time. Indeed there was; not only dramatically less expensive, but also with significant performance advantages.
 
Today Auralex takes great pride in offering a full line of acoustical products based on the “better price/better mousetrap” principle.
 
The great initial success of Studiofoam® quickly led to other innovations including our industry-leading Venus™and LENRD™ Bass Traps. When no reasonably priced diffusors existed, we developed the high-performance T’Fusor™and MiniFusor™. When our customers demanded a modular, absorptive, expandable, and, most importantly, portable solution, we introduced the MAX-Wall™ (the first acoustical product to ever be featured on the cover of a major industry magazine) and Stand-Mounted LENRDs™ to great widespread acclaim!
 
When there were few low-cost, effective construction and isolation products, we answered with SheetBlok™U-Boat™ Floor FloatersPlatFoam™, and other affordable solutions. Most recently, our staff has created specialty products such as the GRAMMA™ (Gig & Recording Amp & Monitor Modulation Attenuator) and our hot new MoPADs™ that answer critical isolation needs and result in dramatically truer sound.
 
While some may try to imitate us, they fall way short.
