About Amplified Sound Ltd.
Barrie Smith, a theatre-trained sound and lighting engineer, began trading as Amplified Sound in 1972 with a single amplifier and a pair of speakers.
Since then, Amplified Sound has grown to become one of the country’s premier PA companies in the field of outdoor and showground systems. Over the years, we have taken over a number of other companies, including the sound division of A Blick & Son in 1993; Stafford Sound Systems in 1996; and Microphonic of Newport in 1997.
In 2000, we acquired Neptune from Norfolk; in 2002, Soundworx of Worcester; and in 2005, Fears of Cheltenham.
Expanding Amplified Sound has given us many new clients trading as far afield as Scotland and the South Coast, with occasional trips to Ireland.
To protect our customers in the future and maintain our service, Amplified Sound is now a Limited Company with directors who will ensure continuity should anything occur that could prevent Barrie Smith from continuing his role within the organisation.
