SUN VALLEY, IDAHO – APRIL 2010: Legendary rocker and bluesman Steve Miller continues to enjoy a life of recording and touring. Godson to Les Paul, the precocious Miller tapped the artistic veins of the Chicago and New York blues scenes before relocating to San Francisco in the midst of its artistic renaissance, where the Steve Miller Band contributed to the playlist that has become a part of the fabric of modern life. Together with respected engineer Kent Hertz (Godsmack, Julio Iglesias, Gloria Estefan) and eminent producer Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Van Halen), Miller is currently re-recording with the same passion that has attended him his entire life.

SYMNET UPGRADES WARNER CENTER MARRIOTT BALLROOM

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – APRIL 2010: Located in the San Fernando Valley on the northern edge of Los Angeles, the Warner Center Marriott has been catering a wide range of events – including corporate meetings, Hollywood parties, large galas, sweet sixteens and weddings – in its 11,000 square-foot, 1,500-seat ballroom for quite some time. The space is extremely flexible and, with the capacity to subdivide into ten smaller meeting rooms, can be configured up to twenty different ways to meet the needs of any particular event. But for over a decade, the hotel had suffered with a ballroom sound system that was not nearly so flexible, ever-threatening embarrassing technical glitches unbecoming of so posh a setting. Fed up, the Warner Center Marriott cut its losses and replaced the uncooperative system with an exceptionally versatile and utterly intuitive sound system centered on Symetrix’ SymNet open-architecture DSP and Symetrix wall panels. more
