      One of the most confusing subjects in audio? Loudspeaker power ratings. It’s generally accepted that a large loudspeaker power rating is a sign of quality and something to be desired. And it’s the performance metric that probably has the greatest influence on the consumer’s buying decision. But a closer look reveals that power rating is far less significant than other metrics regarding the performance of the loudspeaker. The term “power rating” requires further explanation to avoid misunderstanding. It’s tempting… View this story

Dedicated to revitalizing theater while maintaining its beloved history, Fritchie turned to local integration firm Hoffman Pro Systems to design and install a new AV system protected, powered and operated by a Furman SmartSequencer. “I have been working with… View this story

    LynTec announces the new Input/Output-Relay (I/O-R) board for the Remote Power Controller (RPC) platform. The I/O-R board expands RPC control options to include control for high-current contactors and UPS outlets, giving users more flexibility to connect and control complex systems on a single control platform, instead of using multiple control systems. This capability dramatically simplifies control setup and equipment operation. “High-current contactor control and outlet control are important to system designers as they add more UPS protection to their systems… View this story

    A power amplifier is a device for making a larger, more powerful signal out of a small, weak signal. It was on February 18, 1908 that Lee DeForest was granted U.S. Patent No. 879,532 titled “space telegraphy,” but in actuality, the patent was for a vacuum tube triode amplifier that DeForest called the “audion amplifier.” For the first time it was possible to amplify signals. The first amps were developed to support radio. Later, other applications were developed. All electronics… View this story

    LynTec announces the release of a new white paper titled “New Federal Distribution Transformer Regulations Coming in 2016.” Written by Alan Tschirner, vice president and general manager of LynTec, the document highlights the changes being made by the Department of Energy (DOE) to existing regulations on distribution transformers, and how those changes will make business more costly for manufacturers and audio professionals alike. Audio consultants regularly use distribution transformers to isolate installed sound systems from the rest of a building’s… View this story

    LynTec announces the CTR Series of high-current latching contactor panels for the company’s RPC Series controllers. In conjunction with the controllers, the CTR panels give users the option to control loads — either individually or as part of a sequencing group — that require more power than the maximum 30 amps a motorized circuit breaker can provide. “For some customers, installations are getting more complex, and current loads are getting more demanding. Meanwhile, changes in technology are leading to new… View this story

The hotel turned to local integration firm Spinitar to incorporate the latest audio system and technology including equipment protection from Furman. According to Rudy Zavala, associate systems designer at the firm, the goal of the installation came down to three things: simplicity, functionality and reliability. “One big ballroom is great… View this story

    LynTec announces it has added three new circuit count panels to its RPC line of remote-control breaker panels. The new panels make it possible for LynTec customers to add more circuits to their designs in the same horizontal wall space to control a greater number of components, as needed. “Space is always at a premium in electrical closets, which are usually too small to begin with. That’s why we made a point of adding higher-density panels to our offering as… View this story

    This article is provided by Audio Geek Zine.   A power conditioner is one of those items that might be pretty low on the “things to buy” list. But for a home studio, or especially a live recording set-up, definitely consider getting one sooner rather than later. So what is power conditioning? Power conditioning is a kind of vague term to that covers voltage regulation, surge protection, spike protection and noise reduction of the AC power that runs all your… View this story
