Pro Audio Technology Broadens Presence In CI Market With Affordable Options For Distributed Audio And Media Rooms

Huntington Beach, CA (January 28, 2011) – Building on the success of its initial high-output in-wall loudspeakers, Pro Audio Technology (PRO) has expanded its offering of designer-friendly products to include new in-wall, in-ceiling and subwoofer models.

METRIC HALO’S ULN-8 TRANSCENDS ALL PREVIOUS DEFINITIONS OF AUDIOPHILE QUALITY ON EQUINOX

equinox_cover.JPG

CONGERS, NEW YORK – JANUARY 2011: Soundkeeper Recordings is a beautiful amalgamation of old and new. Veteran recording, mixing, and mastering engineer Barry Diament (Bob Marley, Pete Townshend, Led Zeppelin and on and on and on) founded the fledgling record label and expertly handles all of its technical tasks. On the one hand, Diament reaches back more than half a century, to a time when sound engineers viewed their art as the capturing of what were, first and foremost, live events. Diament records the artists on Soundkeeper Recordings’ roster in beautiful acoustic spaces using only a pair of microphones. Described as “recording without a net,” the musicians, with direction from producer Diament, determine every aspect of the “mix” as they play, with no hope for a technical save in the form of a punch-in or overdub. On the other hand, Diament relies more
