Professional Audio

Professional audio, also pro audio, refers to both an activity and a type of high quality audio equipment. Typically it encompasses sound recording, sound reinforcement system setup and mixing, and studio music production by trained sound engineers, audio engineers and audio technicians who work in live event support, using audio mixers or sound reinforcement systems. In contrast, consumer audio equipment is usually confined to the reproduction of sound in a private home on a home stereo or home cinema system.
