"Mr Soo gave an excellent comparative account of the sound systems of classical and modern churches, citing examples both Singapore and abroad. It was obvious that Mr Soo is an authority on sound systems used in churches."

"I was the coordinator for a 10-week sound course taught by Mr. Robert Soo. I found him a humble and humorous teacher, always willing to share his experience and knowledge in audio engineering. Not only can he teach, he is also a gifted musician and singer!"
Priscilla Law
Overseas Radio Television
"As an audio consultant, I found his seminar both informative and practical. Robert Soo’s approach and techniques are easy to digest and apply. Robert also corrected and clarified audio related terms and debunked some of the myths. I believe the participants are happy with their “take-home” knowledge."
