    More and more these days, audio systems are going digital, not just digital signal processing (DSP), but also for general signal transmission between devices as well. Let’s take a look at the care and feeding of Ethernet cabling, specifically the multiple twisted pair stuff we call CAT-5 and CAT-6. General signal cabling has been organized into categories which we refer to as CAT-X cables. All are available using either solid or stranded conductors. Their designations, according to ElA/TIA-568-B standards are… View this post

      In part 1 of this article series (here), I laid out a few guiding principles regarding Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filters. Here’s a quick review: 1) With FIR filters I can have very steep LP and HP filters, such as might be used in a crossover network, that have linear group delay (same delay for all frequencies). 2) The magnitude and phase response of a FIR filter can be adjusted independently. In an Infinite Impulse Response (IIR) filter they… View this post

    Due to it’s exposure to Lake Erie’s gusty winds, sound reinforcement at the Buffalo Bills’ Ralph Wilson Stadium has always been a challenge. Moreover, Buffalo’s notoriously snowy winters regularly incapacitated the loudspeakers and subwoofers that were exposed to it, and unintelligible announcements and underpowered music were a constant frustration. However, with a new Danley Sound Labs distributed loudspeaker and subwoofer system in place, that lackluster performance is history, and Ralph Wilson Stadium now stands as one of the league’s best… View this post
