AES-NYS: Audio History - WORLD’S FIRST AUDIO AMPLIFIER TO BE DISPLAYED AT AES



WORLD’S FIRST AUDIO AMPLIFIER
TO BE DISPLAYED AT AES
Visit the Audio History Library & Museum - Booth #2666
At this year’s AES Show in New York, the Audio History Library will celebrate our audio heritage by displaying two of the world’s first audio amplifiers. One, the Western Electric mechanical amplifier (see photo), is the first known device for amplifying audio signals.

Louis Manno, director of the Audio History Library, says he looks forward to displaying these and other items from the library’s collection at AES.

An AES member for over thirty years, Manno’s experience includes classical music mixing; theater sound reinforcement; film, foley, and commercial system design and installation.

Manno’s largest project to date is the establishment of the Audio History Library & Museum. The library has information on almost 2000 audio manufacturers from over 36 countries and spans 160 years of audio history. Manno continues to expand the library’s collection of manufacturer’s literature, vintage gear, and other historic artifacts of all descriptions, a task he hopes the library’s presence at AES will help facilitate.

Manno says, “The library’s vision and purpose is to re-introduce our multi-faceted audio history into the public’s social consciousness.” He invites all AES Show attendees to visit the Audio History Library at booth #2666 to see the historic amplifier displays and commented, “I would love to hear your stories about our audio heritage.”
