    Jeff Kuells 02/20 05:33 PM,
    For years, power amplifiers with multiple channels (generally defined as more than two) were for either multiple headphones in studios or low-power-per-channel commercial applications. But are multichannel amps viable for mainstream professional sound reinforcement? You bet. Times have changed, and once again with regard to equipment, the change is for the better. Units with 3 to 6 channels have actually been around since the early 1980s. However, these either had a rather low power-per-channel rating or were fraught with design… View this story

    Radial Engineering has announced the new StageBug SB-4 Piezo, a direct box specifically developed to solve the problems associated with amplifying acoustic instruments when using piezo-electric transducers. The StageBug SB-4 begins with a 1/4-inch input to connect the instrument’s piezo transducer output.  This 10 meg-ohm input is 10 times higher than a traditional DI. The higher impedance smoothes out the peaks and squawk that is common to most piezo systems while broadening the frequency response for a more natural and… View this story
