IndyCar Racer Alex Tagliani and the FAZZT Race Team Communicate via Sennheiser

alex_tagliani.JPG

Toronto, Canada, June 2010 – Sennheiser Canada announces its partnership with native Canadian, IndyCar driver Alex Tagliani and the FAZZT Race Team. Tagliani has racked up numerous wins in the Champ Car Series and is currently driving in the IZOD IndyCar Series where he sits 12th in the point standings. In 2009 he was named Rookie of the Year at the Indy 500 in 2009 for finishing 11th after starting in the 33rd position. Ironically, it was another rookie who may have robbed Tagliani of a win at this year’s Indy 500 in 2010, after an unsportsmanlike block (the rookie was a lap behind) thwarted Tagliani’s run at the leaders and almost sent him into the wall. Nevertheless, Tagliani recovered from 17th to finish 10th. more

ASHLY DSP MEETS HIGH EXPECTATIONS FOR YARD HOUSE RESTAURANT AUDIO

yardhouse_exterior.JPG

WEBSTER, NEW YORK – JUNE 2010: Yard House restaurants are separated from the clutter of contemporary eateries by a unique combination of three powerful ingredients: wonderfully prepared American fare, the world’s largest selection of draft beer – between 100 and 250 taps per restaurant! – and classic rock that is very much in the foreground. CEO and founder Steele Platt places a premium on the sound systems that go into his restaurants – total A/V cost are nearly $250,000 per restaurant – and, as a result, the sonic ambience of a Yard House restaurant is as distinctive as the seemingly endless row of taps that line its wall. The twenty-three newest Yard House restaurants (of twenty-seven total) rely on Ashly Protea DSP hardware ne24.24M to tailor source material so that it will cut through, while still retaining a pleasant overall tone, whether subdued for lunchtime business meetings or unleashed for more

WORD OF LIFE MUSIC COMES ALIVE WITH L-ACOUSTICS

stage.JPG

RED DEER, ALBERTA, CANADA – JUNE 2010: Word of Life Church in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, has successfully developed a worship service style that brings together families and friends from across generations. It is decidedly contemporary and music-centered, but instead of compromising between the stereotyped predilections of young and old, it forges a refreshingly new path that communicates to and excites the entire congregation. Lead Pastor Jachin Mullen is also Word of Life’s music director, a fact that underscores the church’s belief in the ability of music to speak the Word of God. Thus, when the building’s original sound system failed to keep up with the church’s growth, Brendon and Aaron Gerber – brothers, church members, and principals of boutique A/V company Absolute Music – installed a new L-ACOUSTICS dV-DOSC line array system with dV-SUB and SB28 low-end to give the church a pristine voice for its musical focus. more

A WHALE OF A DANLEY SOUND SYSTEM IN CHICAGO’S SHEDD AQUARIUM

fantasea.JPG

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – JUNE 2010: The Shedd Aquarium, appropriately located on Chicago’s magnificent lakeshore, is the city’s most popular ticketed cultural attraction, drawing some two million visitors each year. But rather than rest on its laurels, the eighty year-old Shedd recently “re-imagined” one of its most popular attractions – the Oceanarium – transforming what was once an arguably dated approach to exhibiting the amazing skills of the ocean’s most charismatic creatures, into a full theatrical event, complete with lighting, video, and sound reinforcement in league with the best Broadway houses. But unlike those Broadway houses, the Oceanarium’s inescapable cement and “swimming pool acoustics” made achieving the same high level of audio fidelity vastly more challenging. Chicago-based independent audio systems designer Jonathan Laney met and exceeded that challenge with a full hemispherical surround sound system composed of the well-defined pattern control, musicality, and intelligibility of Danley loudspeakers and subwoofers. more

Users will have the option of adding 20,000 Watts of self-power and/or user-adjustable DSP. more
