    Tannoy has introduced the VLS Series passive column array loudspeakers offering a balance of performance and cost, when active beam-steering may neither be required nor affordable. The VLS Series is the first Tannoy product to incorporate FAST (Focused Asymmetrical Shaping Technology), which delivers unique acoustic performance benefits.

Simply put, if the various software and hardware products you’re using today aren’t going to be around in their current versions for the useful life of the sound recordings you’re creating (i.e.… View this post

    Orange County’s 40-year-old Galaxy Theatre changed ownership back in August and has now undergone a significant metamorphosis into two separate live performance spaces: the intimate 350-capacity Constellation Room and much larger Observatory, which can accommodate an audience of over 1,000. One of the primary improvements made to the venue in the process was the installation of L-Acoustics KARAi line source arrays provided by Certified Provider Rat Sound Systems of Camarillo, California.
