    Romance wasn’t the only thing in the air this past Valentine’s Day weekend; so was an L-Acoustics K2 loudspeaker system flown at Hollywood, Florida’s Hard Rock Live for three sold-out concerts by Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli. Andrea Taglia, who has served as Bocelli’s FOH engineer for nearly nine years, specified the system, which was deployed by PRG. A longtime fan of L-Acoustics’ K1, Taglia also recently used a similar K2 system design for a series of sold-out US arena shows… View this post

    Paradiso, arguably Netherland’s most famous live venue, recently upgraded their sound reinforcement system with an Adamson Energia PA. Located in a converted former church building, the city opened its doors in 1968 as a publicly subsidized entertainment center. As time passed the venue has evolved into what it is today – a pop podium, club and cultural center in one. The main hall has retained much of its church look with an abundance of wood, pillars, and a high 60-foot… View this post

    Marking the introduction of an all-new loudspeaker design, Harman’s JBL Professional today announced the debut of its Control HST wide-coverage loudspeaker featuring patent-pending HST Hemispherical Soundfield Technology. The indoor/outdoor Control HST achieves extremely wide horizontal coverage approaching 180° and uses the wall it’s mounted on to its advantage. “Our new Control HST not only overcomes the inherent acoustic reflections that typically occur with wall mounting, but actually makes the wall an integral part of the loudspeaker’s operation,” said Rick Kamlet,… View this post

    D.A.S. Audio launches the new Event M210A, a three-way stage monitor in a double 10-inch, dual-band configuration. The dual-band configuration permits the twin 10-inch loudspeakers to work in tandem for maximum power at low frequencies. Above the low frequency range, the advanced digital signal processing allows the 10-inch speakers to operate independently in specific frequency ranges, eliminating off-axis interference between the drivers to maintain optimal polar and frequency response characteristics throughout the low and low-mid operating ranges. The D.A.S. loudspeaker… View this post

    Shure wireless microphone systems, wired mics, and in-ear monitoring systems were a near-constant presence at last Sunday’s 57th Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles, which features 23 live musical performances. As usual, musicians were permitted to use their preferred microphones for their performances. Although artists brought their own custom earphones, all in-ear monitoring systems were Shure PSM1000, with 24 channels split between two stages, marking the fourth consecutive year that the Grammy production team chose Shure… View this post

    Global “viral superstar” Psy recently played four sold-out shows at Seoul’s 14,000-capacity Olympic Park Gymnastics Arena supported by Meyer Sound LEO linear large-scale line arrays along with a significant number of additional Meyer Sound components. “The extended headroom and linear output characteristic of LEO is huge with Psy’s music,” says Park Dong Won, the singer’s veteran front of house engineer. “The highs were smooth and natural, even when we pushed the levels, and the dispersion meant uniform coverage for every… View this post
