DANLEY’S DTS10 “DO IT YOURSELF” SUBWOOFER KIT BRINGS NEW FOUND FUN AND PERFORMANCE TO HOME THEATER ENTHUSIASTS

GAINESVILLE, GEORGIA – JANUARY 2010: If you are one of many who post on various audio forums, you may know about the Danley Sound Labs, DIY subwoofer offer. For several months, legendary loudspeaker manufacturer, Danley Sound Labs, has been offering its DTS10 subwoofer as a DIY kit (no kidding). This is a LIMITED TIME OFFER. Keep those last three words in mind as orders keep coming in at amazing rate and the company may have to select an end date. So, act now. For a fraction of the price of a regular Danley home theater sub, the DIY DTS10 45″ x 60″ x 16″ delivers bass down to 11 Hz at chest-crushing SPLs with the robust fidelity for which Danley is renowned. And with the owner’s very hands responsible for its assembly, pride of ownership coupled with performance will soar to the ceiling as friends’ jaws drop to the floor. more

TUBE-TECH SSA2B SUMS UP MARTY STUART AND ENGINEER MICK CONLEY

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – JANUARY 2010: To suggest that Marty Stuart’s forthcoming album, Ghost Train, is a return to his roots, is nonsense, as he is one country singer/songwriter that has never strayed far from those roots. Even Stuart’s string of commercial hits in the 1990s were less about calculating hooks than they were about the affections of a fickle public – affections that shifted for a time toward authentic country. Stuart cut his teeth backing the likes of Lester Flatt, Doc Watson, and Johnny Cash. Ghost Train is a return to his roots, not in its content, but in its process. Stuart and longtime engineer Mick Conley went into legendary RCA Studio B, which is now literally a museum, to cut the tracks in the very first room that Stuart ever recorded in, back in the early 1970s, when he was playing with Lester Flatt. To highlight that beautiful recording more

ASHLY AMPLIFIERS ANCHOR HASTINGS MIDDLE SCHOOL AUDITORIUM AUDIO/VIDEO

HASTINGS, MINNESOTA – JANUARY 2010: Just a half hour outside of the Twin Cities near the confluence of the St. Croix and Mississippi Rivers, Hastings, Minnesota blends the best of near-urban, suburban, and rural living. Hastings Middle School (HMS) has helped foster a uniquely engaged student body, with over 75% of students participating in the performing arts. Ironically, the school’s 700-seat auditorium – an inheritance from the building’s former life as the high school – balanced at the brink of disuse for years because aging audio/video and lighting components were failing on a regular basis. Resuscitation and intervention kept it limping along. However, all of that changed at the beginning of academic year 2009-2010, after Burnsville, Minnesota A/V design/install firm Intermedia Systems Group (ISG), replaced everything that had been terrible and flighty with equipment that was transparent and rock-solid, right down to the amp rack, which now gleams with the more
