    In the early days of our industry, equipment was made to serve the user’s needs. Many of the original studio owners came from a radio background. They built their own equipment, from consoles to compressors to equalizers, etc. They didn’t have cost-effective manufacturing in mind when they created this equipment. They built it in order to make superior-sounding recordings. At some point, other people in the audio community asked these pioneers to build equipment for their studios. The world of… View this post

    ATC announces the upcoming availability of the P2 PRO dual mono power amplifier, rated to deliver 300 watts of continuous power. Hand-built by ATC in the UK, the Class A/B P2 PRO is a dual mono design, keeping the power supplies, signal, and return paths discrete. This approach helps ensure that the amplifier will achieve maximum signal separation with minimal crosstalk, and that intermodulation between channels via the power supplies is reduced to a minimum. It also means that the… View this post

    Over 600 d&b audiotechnik loudspeakers, nearly 150 D80 amplifiers, and twenty nine delay towers for one stage; this was an event on an almost unprecedented scale. Blonia Park, near Poland’s ancient city of Kraków, was the venue for the thirteenth World Youth Day. Since the inaugural gathering in Rome in 1986, the Catholic Church has invited young people of all faiths and persuasions to congregate at events held globally, from Toronto to Sydney to Denver, to Manila in the Philippines.… View this post

    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   Constant-voltage is the common name given to a general practice begun in the late 1920s and early 1930s (becoming a U.S. standard in 1949) governing the interface between power amplifiers and loudspeakers used in distributed sound systems. Installations employing ceiling-mounted loudspeakers, such as offices, restaurants and schools are examples of distributed sound systems. Other examples include installations requiring long cable runs, such as stadiums, factories and convention centers. The need to do… View this post

    Pascal has announced the launch of its new U-PRO Series amplifier module. A design optimized for self-powered portable PA systems and compact, high SPL loudspeakers for fixed installation applications; offering both single and asymmetrically rated 2-way power channels. The U-PRO series features dynamic power ratings due to its high voltage rails, relative to its RMS power output. With RMS ratings of 280 W, it can deliver short bursts of 500 watts RMS or 1000 watts peak power. The U-PRO2 has… View this post

    Located in northwestern Tennessee, Bethel University is a small Christian institution of higher education. In recent years, its student body has swelled to nearly 5,000 students, and with that increase has come new interest in its many athletic programs. The Bethel University Wildcat football team plays at Wildcat Stadium, which now manages the larger crowds with an upgraded system built around Ashly Audio. The stadium sound reinforcement system, installed by Lowrance Sound Company (Union City, Tennessee) nearly a decade ago,… View this post

    As with the ever-ongoing debates about “tubes versus transistors,” “analog versus digital” and “Mac versus PC,” there’s not likely to be agreement any time soon about “objective versus subjective” when it comes to sound quality. Extremists in the “Objectivist” camp argue that, “if it can’t be measured, it doesn’t exist” while on the other hand, the “Subjectivist” side firmly backs the idea that “human beings can hear things that can’t be measured.” How often has it been suggested, “use your… View this post
