I have been performing as a speaker and entertainer for many years and I know that great audio (voice and music) is extremely important. If people can’t hear you well, they will not enjoy the performance no matter how great you were. With good background music, a program can be much more exciting. A great sound system (and engineer) should be invisible to the audience. They should just work and not distract from the performance. There should be minimal squeals and feedback.
After trying many systems, reviewing, and writing about them since 2004, I believe I’ve found the best one. I’ve used it in many shows and venues and our local NSA-MN (National Speaker’s Association) chapter has used it as the primary audio system for our meetings. It has saved our association money by not requiring us to rent the sound system from the hotel. In fact, it paid for itself quickly.
The system is called the Happie Amp. It is the best portable audio system for the traveling speaker/entertainer, clubs/associations, etc. I highly recommend the Happie Amp because it is:
A powerful amplifier that can handle events of 20-400 people indoors or outdoors.
A quality sound system with few points of failure.
Extremely compact and lightweight to transport. Everything fits in one small suitcase.
Quick and easy to set up with a minimum number of cables.
Extremely versatile offering many configurations and options for mics, inputs, and outputs.
An incredible value for the cost.
Even someone unfamiliar with sound or audio systems will be able to set up the Happie Amp and getting it running quickly without a degree in sound engineering.
I recommend the Happie Amp as the primary system for appropriate sized events where you need to completely control the sound. A different sound system might be appropriate for very large events or outdoors. It is especially useful for entertainers that require a wireless mic, so they can have their hands available to play instruments, juggle, or do magic.
If you are utilizing the “house” or built-in sound system provided on location, the Happie Amp can act as your backup sound system in case something should go wrong or they do not have the mic options that you require.
