    Univest Bank recently opened a branch office in Newtown, Pennsylvania and relied on A/V integration firm Communication Systems Incorporated, CSi, of nearby Allentown to design and commission a sound system for digital signage and traditional background music. In turn, CSi relied on an Ashly Audio Pema 8125 eight-channel amplifier with an integrated digital matrix processor, along with Ashly Audio’s WR-5 wall-mounted remote control and its iPad remote control app. “To the electrical contractor, Bergey’s Electric, of Hatfield, Pennsylvania, the bank… View this post

    You patch in a piece of audio equipment, and there it is: HUM! This annoying sound is a common occurrence in sound systems. Hum is an unwanted 60 Hz tone—50 Hz in Europe—maybe with harmonics. If the harmonics are especially strong, the hum becomes an edgy buzz. Your sound system also might be plagued by RFI (Radio Frequency Interference). It’s heard as buzzing, clicks, radio programs, or “hash” in the audio signal. RFI is caused by CB transmitters, computers, lightning,… View this post

      Trying to characterize amplifiers or loudspeakers only by power ratings is akin to trying to completely characterize a person by a photograph. There is always much more than meets the eye. Few subjects generate more confusion in the audio world than power. There is a very good reason for this—it’s a confusing subject, and one that can easily fool our intuition. Most of us are on a power trip—our attitude is that “more is better.” We want bigger amplifiers… View this post

    The Life Center at East Valley Church, located in Orangevale, CA just outside Sacramento, hosts two services each Sunday, serving a Christian congregation of roughly 1,000 members. Many of the diverse weekly events were hosted in a temporary building on the church grounds that ended up flooding. Rather than shrinking into despair, the congregation rallied and created a new ‘Life Center’ — which includes an A/V system built around the Powersoft X8 amplifier.  As both a member of the church,… View this post

    Radial Engineering announces the Headload Prodigy - a combination load box and DI that enables one to drive a guitar amp at a higher output in order to maximize the tone, yet produce a lower stage volume when needed. Like the original Headload, the Prodigy employs cement-encrusted resister coils to covert the excessive power from the amplifier to heat and is able to withstand up to 100 watts RMS. The Prodigy may be used in three different ways, depending on… View this post
