Ep 7: John Meyer (Meyer Sound)

This episode features John Meyer, who together with his wife Helen foundered Meyer Sound.

John began his work in audio in the 1960s designing live sound systems for The Steve Miller Band and The Grateful Dead. In the early 1970s he carried out research at the Institute of Advanced Music Studies in Montreux Switzerland, exploring high quality sound reinforcement systems for classical music.

Since founding the company in the 1970s Meyer Sound has become one of the worlds leading audio technology manufacturers. They have an emphasis on research and development which in recent years has seen the development of the Constellation active architecture system which we will talk about later. John and his team are involved in providing systems for everything from TV and film production, broadway theatres and live music from Metallica to the Musikverein. You may even recognize John from his appearances on Mythbusters.

I got to sit down with John at the Concourse in Chatswood during a recent visit. We had about an hour and we barely scratched the surface.

It's a very nice introduction to the interview, but its first sentence should not say John and Helen "foundered" (i.e., wrecked) Meyer Sound, but rather that they founded the company (as founders do).
