    Dear Old Soundman: “I don’t have a nickname. How do I get one? Do I need one?” Sincerely, Scohen Dude! You absolutely need one! Everybody needs one! How about if I call you “Sco”? That is what aspiring young “yo-cat” fusion musicians at the Berklee School of Music in the 80s called guitarist John Scofield. These are the same obsessive characters who smugly referred to Charlie Parker as “Bird” and John Coltrane as “Trane,” and sat around discussing “Chick” and… View this post

    Paul Watson 04/09/12 03:10 PM,
    The D.A.S. Audio journey began more than 40 years ago, when a new enterprise named “Dynamic and Sound” was created by Juan Alberola in Valencia, Spain in 1971. Alberola, with a serious passion for audio, began designing and manufacturing his own loudspeakers and components, initially for studio monitoring and home listening, and all built in-house. Just a few years later, that focus also included producing larger loudspeakers for Spain’s thriving dance club, fueled by the country’s reputation as a European… View this post

    When Yes Events Ltd purchased a major RCF Theatre & Touring (TT+) system nine months ago they were determined to standardize on RCF components from that point forward. Their recent purchase of eight-enclosure TTL33-A compact, 3-way active line array system and two additional TTS28-A subwoofers was a good start on that commitment. In addition, they have invested in six TT25-SMA touring 15in stage monitors and RCF’s proprietary RDNet system software, to integrate with the TTL33-A. According to Yes Events director,… View this post

When we lived in our first, tiny little house, we didn’t have that much stuff. In fact, it all fit in a single moving van when we bought our next, larger house. After 10 years there, however, we had a lot of stuff. In fact, the once empty basement was full. It took an interstate… View this post

    Unbalanced Lines Unbalanced signal lines are characterized by the fact that the cable and connectors use only two conductors, a center conductor surrounded by a shield. Examples of unbalanced wiring are found in tip/sleeve 1/4-in guitar cords or the cables used with many CD players and tape decks which terminate with RCA phono type connectors. In an unbalanced configuration, the shield surrounds a single center conductor. The shield stays at a constant ground potential (as it is connected to ground… View this post
