Charlie Hughes has joined Biamp as Principal Engineer within the company’s growing Electroacoustics division.

Charlie HughesA pioneer in loudspeaker development and measurement methods, Hughes now leads Biamp’s acoustic design across a wide range of professional applications, supporting the company’s efforts in high-quality loudspeaker development.

‘Nearly two years after our acquisition of Community Loudspeakers and Apart Audio, our line of loudspeakers has expanded to include solutions for a full range of venues, including application-driven loudspeakers with precision coverage and premium sound quality,’ says Biamp VP of Engineering, Jason Damori. ‘Biamp is committed to providing best-in-class audio solutions for demanding environments, and we welcome Charlie to help us further this mission.’

Hughes has a bachelor’s degree in physics from Georgia Tech, specialising in acoustics. He has more than 30 years’ professional experience in acoustical engineering and loudspeaker system design. Most recently, he led his own consulting company, Excelsior Audio, during which time he worked with a variety of audio equipment manufacturers, venue owners/operators, and technical service providers.

Hughes was formerly a design engineer at Peavey Electronics and Altec Lansing, and has been an invited speaker and panellist for numerousAES Conventions. He is also an adjunct faculty member of InfoComm University and is active in standards development, currently serving on multiple US and international standards committees, including AES, Avixa, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). As a result of his work on standards, he received the 2013 CTA Technology Achievement Award. Hughes currently has seven US patents issued.

‘I’ve worked with Biamp for more than ten years in different consulting capacities, which has given me further insight into the company’s excellent product development process,’ he says. ‘With loudspeaker design, a lot of companies start at what they think is the beginning and put things together in the hope of achieving a desired outcome. I approach it the opposite way – I like to think about what we want the finished loudspeaker to do and work backwards, so we know it’s going to accomplish the intended goals when we complete the product design. The team at Biamp shares this philosophy, and I am excited to partner with a great group of people and assist with Biamp’s focus on loudspeaker innovation.’
