TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik’s M82 Dynamic Microphone received this year’s coveted TEC Award in the category of Microphone Technology/Sound Reinforcement. “We put a ton of research, energy and hard work into our products and to be recognized by our peers with this year’s TEC Award is very rewarding for all of us at Tfunk,” said Alan Veniscofsky, Director of Operations.

Recording industry legends, musicologists and titans of the audio universe came together for an evening of musical celebrations and honors at the 29th Annual NAMM TEC AWARDS (Technical Excellence & Creativity). Winners were announced in 30 technical and creative categories at the show, which was held at the Anaheim Hilton in Anaheim, Calif., January 24, 2014. The awards event recognizes the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind the sound of recordings, live performances, films, television, video games and other media.

“The TEC Awards are a natural extension of the NAMM Show’s ‘gathering of the tribes’ to recognize the important products and people in our musical ecosystem,” said Joe Lamond, president and CEO of NAMM. “In making the TEC Awards a signature event at NAMM, we celebrate the innovation and creativity that happens when those who make wonderful music and sound products connect with the artists who then use this gear to create the music that has changed the world.”
