Happy Birthday TOA!
February 04, 2014

In case the nice logo didn't tip you off, 2014 is TOA Corporation's 80th Anniversary. That's 80 years of technical innovation that TOA has been involved with since its founding in Kobe, Japan in 1934. TOA is responsible for such AV milestones as- the first electronic megaphone, first multi-channel/multi-function DSP, first large format digital mixing console, first modular mixer-amp, first digital mixer-amp and in 2014, the first steerable array presentation microphone (*see the AM-1 spotlight below). Coincidentally, this is also TEI's (TOA Electronics, Inc in the USA) 40th Anniversary. Needless to say, we have reason to celebrate (and we will be). Thanks to all of you for supporting TOA and allowing us to serve your needs for so many years. We will be working hard to continue that tradition going forward. There's lots of exciting things coming in 2014, so stay tuned.
