KUGAARUK, NUNAVUT – DECEMBER 2010: Home to approximately eight-hundred native Inuit and a handful of southerners, the municipality of Kugaaruk brushes up against the Arctic Ocean, in the far northern Nunavut Territory of Canada. It is the location of Canada’s coldest recorded wind chill (-78 degrees Celsius) and a place where the day is seldom punctuated by a rising or setting sun. It is also the location of very favorable seal hunting and a place where polar bear sightings are commonplace. In their meetings every two weeks, Kugaaruk council members rely on a conference system so that Christopher Amautinuar can translate between English and Inuktitut. Kugaaruk recently replaced an aged and problematic conference system with a new Sennheiser conference system that delivers spoken word with perfect clarity and intelligibility.

Among the regular council members, one speaks only English and three speak more

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – DECEMBER 2010: Beginning with a string of hits in the 1970s that earned her the title “Queen of Disco,” Donna Summer has earned seventeen Grammy nominations and five wins throughout her career. Her latest chart-topper, 2010′s “To Paris with Love” came on the heels of her performance at The Nobel Peace Prize Concert in honor of President Obama and marks her fifth decade in the limelight. Danish producer, engineer, and songwriter Peter Stengaard (Pussycat Dolls, Jojo, Diane Warren) produced the song using his ATC active monitors to ensure translation wherever the song is played, be it a giant club system or a tiny pair of ear buds. For his forthcoming work with Summer, Stengaard is using a BOCK 507 large diaphragm condenser microphone together with the ATC monitors to highlight the magic of Summer’s timeless voice.

Access to Stengaard’s private home studio comes with his more

The Symetrix Jupiter processors, not only vanquished more

FLYING DANLEY LOUDSPEAKERS HOOK FISHHAWK FELLOWSHIP CHURCH

fishhawk_church.JPG

LITHIA, FLORIDA: Fishhawk Fellowship Church (FFC) brings a contemporary worship style to its 400-seat sanctuary and a welcoming attitude that has drawn together a devout community of worshipers from the Tampa suburb of Lithia, Florida. Like so many mid-sized churches, FFC went in for a “one size fits all” sound system many years ago that, predictably, would have been more truthfully described as a “doesn’t fit at all” sound system. FFC called on Christian Sound Installation (CSI), a Tampa-based AV design and installation firm to remedy their woes. CSI in turn called on a full complement of Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers, subwoofers, stage monitors, amplifiers, and DSP to deliver coverage that is uniform, audible-range fidelity that is musical, and bass that warms the soul.

“They were having all kinds of problems with the old system. It was a mess,” said Paul Garner, founder and president of more

DANLEY TAKES BIG TEN SOUND TO ELEVEN

unionbar_crowd.JPG

IOWA CITY, IOWA: The Union Bar in Iowa City, Iowa is the biggest bar in the Big Ten Conference and the weekly scene of parties that consistently earn The Union Bar a spot on Playboy’s list of hottest parties in the USA. DJs from Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and New York City regularly fly to Iowa City to host the parties front-and-center from the dance floor’s stage, a stage now both flanked by high-fidelity, abundantly-powerful Danley loudspeakers and moved, literally, by a pack of beefy Danley subwoofers. Apart from the dramatically improved fidelity, which no longer causes patrons to equate “loud” with “painful,” the well-behaved pattern control of the Danley boxes allowed owner/operator George Wittgraf to direct sound away from the bar itself, making it easy for bartenders to hear drink orders where it used to be an often-unsuccessful scream-fest.

“The old system was loud in the worst way more
