    audio power
    Pat Brown 04/29/15 06:03 AM,
      Trying to characterize amplifiers or loudspeakers only by power ratings is akin to trying to completely characterize a person by a photograph. There is always much more than meets the eye. Few subjects generate more confusion in the audio world than power. There is a very good reason for this—it’s a confusing subject, and one that can easily fool our intuition. Most of us are on a power trip—our attitude is that “more is better.” We want bigger amplifiers… View this story

    If electrical wiring, from main breaker panel to outlet, consists of Romex and plastic J-boxes, an “isolated” or “technical” ground system is already in place. This is the case In most, but not all, residential wiring. However, when wiring consists of metallic conduit and J-boxes, as in most commercial buildings, an isolated safety-grounding scheme can sometimes reduce audio system noise. It is most applicable in situations where conduit may come in contact with building steel, water pipes, gas pipes, or… View this story

    PSW Staff 01/26/15 06:58 PM,
    Radial Engineering has introduced the IceCube IC-1, a compact balanced line isolator designed to fit inside a technician’s tool kit to eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops in audio systems. Radial sales manager Roc Bubel: “The use of isolators to solve noise problems is not new; small plastic units have been around for years. But the problem with these is that they were designed years ago - back when audio systems had limitations both with respect to signal-to-noise,… View this story

    Using our Stephen Hawking approved design for a real time machine, we journey to the dawn of the last century. It’s the summer of 1905 and in under a year the mechanical age will give way to the dawning of the electrical age. At this time the world is dominated by giant machines that can truly be called “heavy iron.” Machines like this: These 200-plus-ton behemoths are the quintessential embodiment of the leading edge of engineering and technology, and have… View this story

    I’ve been using rechargeable batteries in live production settings for more than eight years now, and writing about it for almost that long. In that time, I’ve come across three camps in the rechargeable battery debate. The first group has used them for years, loves them and wouldn’t consider going back to alkaline batteries. The second group has never used them, though most have heard the horror stories and are leery. The third group has tried them and had bad… View this story
