    I felt the need to write this article after a recent cross-country trip, and I’m pretty sure many of you can relate to my experience. At a newer, modern airport, I was waiting to board a connecting flight, and everything appeared to be going as planned until the departure time suddenly changed on the monitor - a one hour delay. However, I never learned the reason for the delay, because the gate attendant making the announcement either had the mic… View this story

    For years, when we thought of active loudspeakers, often the image was of studio monitors. However, now when you pick up a catalog, it’s obvious that nearly every manufacturer has an active loudspeaker line. I often hear people ask, “What’s so special about active loudspeakers? Why would you want to put all of your eggs in one basket?” “What are the advantages of active loudspeakers?” “Aren’t they overpriced?” Read on, let’s find out! Active Or Powered Active loudspeakers are also… View this story

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

    Do you really care if the power amplifier you’re using is a MOSFET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistors) or Bipolar design? Probably not, at least as long as the amplifier continues to perform. With modern amplifiers, few people notice the difference between the designs until the amp fails and they receive the repair bill. That’s when most people take a special notice. Keeping that in mind, let’s walk through some of the advantages, disadvantages and myths of these two… View this story
