Celebrating A Double Anniversary
Marking 20 years since audioXpress was launched, and 50 since Ed Dell began his journey.
Editorial By J. Martins

 

audioXpress Magazine January 2021

 

  This edition of audioXpress magazine should be covered in glitter and gold to properly signal and celebrate our double anniversary, but unfortunately that's not an appropriate mood for the times in which we live. However, it is worth noting that this edition marks 20 years since audioXpress was launched. And this is also the 50th anniversary since the publication's founder's company was started!

Many of our readers are extensively familiar with the foundational history of The Audio Amateur company by founder Edward T. Dell. This publishing effort started in 1970 and was the beginning for Audio Electronics, Speaker Builder, Glass Audio, Multimedia Manufacturer, and other audio-focused periodicals. Eventually, in January 2001, Ed Dell decided to create a monthly magazine, merging those quarterly publications into audioXpress. This means that, in January 2021, we celebrate 50 years from the company's origins and 20 years of audioXpress.

Since its foundation, audioXpress inherited a long-standing tradition of serving up the best in audio DIY, electronics and innovations — the reason why audioXpress magazine adopted the slogan "Advancing the Evolution of Audio Technology Since 1970."

Fifty years is a remarkable landmark for any company, and particularly for a publishing venture. The publication's team of award-winning and highly recognized authors from around the world are the reason why audioXpress has gained such wide recognition from global audio electronics, engineering, and DIY enthusiasts communities like no other publication, and is today recognized by R&D teams and audio product developers and designers worldwide.

Of course, audioXpress evolved, and is today much more focused on Audio Development and Design, particularly with its globally recognized website serving daily product and industry updates. Also, audioXpress' audience has significantly expanded since 2014, when the magazine embraced its audio development focus and expanded its coverage on audio innovations across all market segments to embrace headphones, wireless audio, voice interfaces, communications, and automotive.

Now reaching many more readers all over the world with its print and digital combined circulation, the majority of the magazine's readers are engineers working in manufacturers' R&D departments, engineers involved in product design and development, manufacturing, systems integration, and consultancy. For 2021, we have planned an exciting editorial calendar that will also help our readers during these troubled times. With the global pandemic, we've seen that more people are now open to the idea of getting magazines digitally, but we are also planning a tighter convergence among our other media platforms, including our website and e-newsletter. The largest challenge in 2020 and throughout 2021 will continue to be the need to adapt the process of accessing relevant information. With the industry reorganizing without the traditional conventions and trade shows, this has not been easy, but we recognize our readers require even more up to date information — and they rely on us to find it.

In a way, the pandemic did level the field in terms of access to information and it revealed the absurdity of having hundreds or thousands of media sources that are limited to simply replicate information, most of the time with no ability to fact-check it or add value to it. And that's where our direct connection to the industry and our expert network enables us to maintain a firm course.

In these 50 years since The Audio Amateur began, our publications have remained relevant because of the quality of its content, reflecting the interests of a unique community. Today, that community — a strong network of professionals, industry connections, experts and enthusiasts — makes audioXpress, and we are confident we are able to offer unique content and a valuable perspective.
