Lectrosonics Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Lectrosonics, worldwide manufacturer of wireless microphone systems and audio processing products, is very proud to announce that this month, the company is celebrating its 50th Anniversary.  

Founded in March of 1971 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Lectrosonics products are used in countless broadcast, television, theatre, film, live performance, and music productions worldwide.

Today, all Lectrosonics products are still 100% made in the U.S. factory in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, are essential tools for the broadcast and film production communities, and are regularly found throughout the music industry as well as live sound reinforcement for the pro touring, installed sound, theatre, and church markets.

“From wooden lecterns in 1971 to Academy Award-winning wireless microphones today, the past 50 years at Lectrosonics have brought amazing technological changes both in the products we make and in the markets we serve,” says Gordon Moore (pictured left), Lectrosonics president and a 33-year company employee.  

“We advanced from through-hole components with hand assembly to surface-mount technology and CNC machining.  Our employees have had free reign to imagine, challenge, and invent with the reward of their innovations becoming an integral part of television and movie sound recording, news gathering, broadcast, theatre, and installed sound.  Thank you to all our amazing partners and customers.  What a fun ride!”
