    Originally built in 1918 and opened for vaudeville in 1921, the 1500-seat RKO Orpheum was converted for use as a movie house soon after. Over the years, the Beaux Arts style theater has gone through several iterations before being shuttered by floodwaters from Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The historic venue was purchased in February 2014 and underwent a $13 million, 18-month renovation to both restore and redevelop the theater into a multi-use facility, which included the installation of Martin Audio‘s… View this post

    Following numerous requests over the years for a rack-mount version of its stand-alone all-tube DI, A-Designs has introduced the REDDI V2, a new dual-mono-channel, 19-inch, 2RU direct box. “Quite simply, there is no better sounding way to convert an instrument, or line level signal, to XLR. And the new REDDI V2 faithfully brings the exact same warmth, transparency and clean, airy high end to the rack, with the added benefit of featuring two separate 6N1P tube-driven mono channels for stereo… View this post

At the same time, rack-mounted “outboard” amplifiers continue to see healthy use in a wide range of sound reinforcement applications, and it’s these units that are the focus here. Amplifiers are far lighter and… View this post
