January 28, 2024 ─ Anaheim, CA ─Electro-Voice is starting 2024 stronger than ever with a major milestone – the one-millionth ZLX portable loudspeaker recently rolled off the production line, solidifying the series’ status as the most successful in Electro-Voice’s almost 100-year history!
Designed to deliver professional audio performance at an accessible price point, ZLX launched at the NAMM Show back in 2013 and immediately made an impact in the industry. ZLX made a triumphant return to this year’s NAMM in Anaheim to mark this momentous occasion. Electro-Voice dealers and enthusiasts visiting the EV demo room were invited to meet the one-millionth ZLX in person – the box is now covered in signatures from EV team members from around the world – and to sign a special Platinum display in recognition of their key role in the ZLX’s iconic success. Representatives from the Electro-Voice engineering and product development teams behind ZLX were also present to celebrate.
Guests in the Electro-Voice demo room also experienced EV’s latest offering, the EVERSE 12 battery-powered loudspeaker, which launched at the show. Models from the broader Electro-Voice portable sound portfolio – including ZLX – were also showcased in what was easily one of the most impressive pro-audio demonstrations at the show. The EV team hinted at more major product introductions coming soon, further building on the extraordinary momentum generated by market-leaders like ZLX, EVOLVE and EVERSE.
Given ZLX’s global appeal, the celebrations extend far beyond the NAMM Show. Members of Bosch’s executive board of management traveled to Electro-Voice’s ZLX production facility to witness the historic one-millionth speaker being made, adding their signatures to five ZLX boxes, along with members of the production team. These five ZLXs are now traveling to Electro-Voice sites around the world, gathering additional signatures from the various teams behind the product’s remarkable journey, to signify what is a truly international success story – one that has been created by passionate ZLX users around the world, and one that is set to go from strength to strength in 2024.
