    Tannoy has introduced the QCV Series, a new range of “open ceiling” hanging pendant loudspeakers, designed for applications such as airports, railway stations, malls and large double/triple height commercial floors. The unique cylindrical form-factor has been conceived to meet the exacting demands of the architectural sector, minimizing the impact on aesthetics and allowing the systems designer to locate the loudspeakers discretely, at a desired height without regard to the physical ceiling height, and in a manner that won’t conflict with… View this post

    Not so long ago, mixers had six channels, round knobs, and green paint. Next came a parade of large-format mixing desks, weighing hundreds of pounds. Later, the first digital consoles appeared, also weighing hundreds of pounds. (Is there an echo in here?)
