    This article is provided by Gary Zandstra.com.   I was recently thinking about a something I watched take place several years ago - the official “school count” day. Specifically, a very large school district here in the state of Michigan was providing free meals and giveaway items in trying to “lure” attendance from every student possible. This was taken from the school district’s official website: Free breakfast and lunch The Office of Food Services will offer breakfast and lunch to… View this post

    Founded in 2005, Irish pub Stout’s Madison Square Garden location expanded to the city’s Wall Street District with Stout FiDi in 2015. Most recently, Stout continued its growth with Stout NYC Grand Central, a bustling bar and restaurant just off Park Avenue. Richard Trombitas of Cardone, Solomon Associates, New York, worked together with AV contractors Starview Satellite (Rego Park, New York) to implement a sound system for the new venue based on Symetrix DSP. Stout NYC Grand Central’s layout covers… View this post

    “A cable is a source of potential trouble, connecting two other sources of potential trouble.” The humor in this statement may be lost on those who regularly assemble sound systems. But a reality of sound systems is that a signal accumulates noise as it flows through equipment and cables. And once noise contaminates a signal, it’s essentially impossible to remove it without altering or degrading the original signal. For this reason, no system can be quieter than its noisiest link.… View this post

    Editor’s note: This goes back to 2013, but the advice is critical to this industry and worthy of repeating. The term “bedside manner” is usually associated with doctors, but I think it’s equally appropriate for any situation where customers are being served in perhaps a technical way and communication between parties is essential. Psychology matters, and should be considered in the presentation, the choice of words, and certainly the attitude of the vendor or service provider. Case in point: when… View this post

    Grasshopper Off the Green is a lively Irish pub in Morristown, New Jersey spanning three stories that patrons regularly fill to capacity. Its current sound system was updated in 2011, but the amps that went in with the loudspeakers couldn’t keep up with the pub’s near-constant use. Local A/V integrator Starview Satellite replaced them with KLR-3200 and nX 3.02 amplifiers from Ashly Audio. “They’ve got a ton of stuff going on at Grasshopper,” said Rich Trombitas, regional sales & product… View this post

    Over the years many have debated the relative merits of “looking at screen traces” on an analyzer versus using human hearing to determine how a loudspeaker, or an entire system, actually performs. While both practices are of course valid, it’s extremely difficult for the human ear to detect, characterize, and correct small deviations in frequency and phase response, and even harder to characterize driver distortion in a meaningful manner. Likewise, the ear is often stymied when attempting to typify transient… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Editor’s note: This one obviously goes back a few years, but the information is worthy of repeating. Audio folks can be snobs when it comes to gear. But the reality is, we can’t always have our favorites. Sometimes, it’s a simple budget issue. At Coast Hills (my church), we didn’t have the budget for Meyer Sound, d&b audiotechnik or L-Acoustics loudspeakers. If I had held out for those brands because they have more… View this post
