      Many things around us are getting better. Computers are faster, televisions have more resolution, and dishwashers are quieter and more powerful than ever.

    Rane’s Halogen 6.0 software, launched in July, adds the real-time clock-based Event Manager to schedule system actions, with the new ability to generate an Excel equipment list to speed bids, system pricing and order accuracy. The galvanically isolated, logic I/O-equipped RAD16z continues the modern approach of placing audio converters at the wall, not in the rack room with antiquated conduit and analog cabling. Like all RAD models, the RAD16z offers the ability to immediately identify bad cable crimps or swapped… View this story

    signal path quality

    Editor’s Note: Be sure to see the related article by Jamie entitled “Anatomy Of A System Measurement Rig: Probes, Preamps & Processors”.
