    CenturyLink is one of the largest telecommunications companies in the United States, with extensive operations in 37 states. When the old A/V systems at the company’s Monroe, Louisiana, headquarters weren’t performing up to expectations, CenturyLink called Singularity Technologies of Johnstown, Colorado, for a field evaluation, which led them to Attero Tech. “We didn’t work on the original install in Monroe but we have a longstanding relationship with CenturyLink,” explains Singularity Technologies president Matt Zavakos. “CenturyLink asked us to devise a… View this post

    Stout Irish pub’s original location across from Madison Square Garden opened in 2005 and was augmented in 2015 with the opening of Stout FiDi in the city’s Wall Street District.

    Dear Old Soundman— Yes, SPA1! Were your parents named SPA.09? I’ve enjoyed reading your comments for some time now. See, even though you have named yourself after a decadent outdoor love tub, you’re okay! I wonder if you might give us your insight regarding musicians who use earplugs (sometimes very sophisticated earplugs,) but then require ridiculous monitor levels on stage. There was a lack of love in these people’s lives when they were children. I run into more problems with… View this post

    The 59th annual GRAMMY Awards show, broadcast live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, was hosted by James Corden and dominated by multiple-award-winners Adele, Beyoncé, and Chance The Rapper. To help ensure an interference-free evening, the audio crew paired Shure UHF-R transmitters with Axient AXT600 receivers for increased selectivity. The podium microphones were also wireless, with Shure UR1 transmitters hidden beneath. In addition, nearly all of the in-ear monitor systems used were Shure PSM 1000 units. Audio for the… View this post
