    Andrea Taglia, FOH and Studio Engineer for the world-renowned Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, recently added Harman’s AKG K812 headphones to his product lineup. For studio sessions as long as Bocelli’s, Taglia needed headphones that could not only put out consistent and pure sound with the finest sonic details, but could also provide a level of comfort that is tolerable for several hours. After testing the K812 headphones on multiple devices including mobile phones, notebooks, and home stereo systems, Andrea’s expectations… View this story

    The First Alliance Church in Calgary is home to a 75-year-old sanctuary that seats 1,700 people. The size of its congregation, combined with the various styles of music and dynamic worship services, prompted Technical Director of Environments Paul Nadeau-Bonilla to recently upgrade the Church’s audio system with Harman’s Soundcraft Vi6 digital console, installed by Sapphire Sound in Vancouver, B.C. The Church hosts full orchestras, choirs and bands, on top of its annual Broadway-style Christmas musical. The Vi6 was chosen for… View this story

    Himmelstalundshallen is an indoor arena in Norrköping, Sweden that is home to the HC Vita Hasten ice hockey team. The 4,480-seat facility also hosts concerts and other sporting events. The oval-shaped arena opened in 1977 and even then its audio system would hardly be mistaken for state of the art—making it overdue for an upgrade by Sound contractor Micab under the direction of installation specialist Mikael Bergvall. The arena is the largest in Sweden to install Harman’s Crown DCi Series… View this story
