welcome EDITOR’S COMMENT WOW. WE GOT HERE!


It’s been a long old wait for the redesign of Pro Sound News Europe–but, I think you’ll agree, it was well worth it.


Since the publication was first created in 1986, we think we’ve done a pretty good job of delivering the news to the letterboxes of the European professional audio community every month.


“PSNEurope... just got a whole lot smarter. And, dare I say it, sexier”


But we now live in an age of email, websites and Twitter. So we’ve had to question the look and feel of a title that, by its very definition, is about news. News that maybe ‘old news’ by the time the magazine drops on to your doormat. Welcome, then, to PSNEurope. Cleaner design, deeper news analysis, a greater number of points of access, and a format that’s easier to navigate, while retaining the key elements that got us through the first (!) 25 years: depth, breadth, writing with style and a truly European reach. PSNEuropeis still your friendly and familiar fix of pro-audio info (of course!) but we just got a whole lot smarter. And, dare I say it, sexier. It’s better looking, and a better read all-round. Drop me a line and tell me what you like. Or what you don’t.


I’ve heard a couple of whispers about surprise debuts at Prolight + Sound; and as we go live at the show with this issue, I’m hoping we surprise – in a good way – a few faces with our very own relaunch. See you on the showfloor. I’ll be the bloke with a big smile on my face.
