    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   Condenser microphones need phantom power to operate their internal circuitry. Phantom power is supplied to the mic through its 2-conductor shielded cable. The power can be supplied either from a stand-alone device or from a mixing console (at each mic connector). The microphone receives power from, and sends audio to, the mixer along the same cable conductors. It’s called “phantom” because the power does not need a separate cable; it’s “hiding” in… View this post

    Giveon Electronics Ltd. is celebrating 75 years as a distributor of Shure products. Based in Tel Aviv, Israel, Giveon has marketed quality audio products in Israel since 1934, and began its affiliation with Shure Incorporated just two years after being founded. Ahinoam Giveon, managing director and son of company founder Joseph Giveon, says the relationship began when his father sent Shure a postcard in response to enjoying a Shure catalog. He was impressed by Shure’s quick response, and the relationship… View this post

    When I set out writing the article it was originally about 70-volt audio distribution systems. However, it occurred to me that prior to educating readers about 70-volt systems, it was more important to examine the market conditions we’re currently face today. Quite often, sound reinforcement companies are asked to perform audio installations. While sound contracting and live sound may be the focus of a few businesses tackling both markets is not the norm for most sound reinforcement companies. However, one-stop… View this post

However, unlike most of the rest of the world, churches thrive because of the efforts of volunteers. With help from God, they achieve great things and do good works. In the workforce, an employee commits to fill a job position, understanding that there will be… View this post
