dts10_diy.JPG

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_middle_school.JPG

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

C’BURG BRETHREN CHURCH PUTS FAITH IN ONE DANLEY SUB!

CHAMBERSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA – JANUARY 2010: The brethren of Chambersburg Brethren in Christ Church had suffered every Sunday with an inarticulate, unintelligible sound system not just for months, not just for years, but for decades. However, with an array of investments competing for limited funds, the risk of throwing good money after bad to improve or replace the sound system forced them to “just deal with it.” Nearly twenty years after their installation, the problematic loudspeakers forced the issue to be addressed. Now, an all new Danley-centered system with QSC amps and Ashly processing delivers, not just the abundant low-end that was previously absent but, an articulate high-end that has literally allowed the word of God to be heard throughout the entire congregation. more

ATLANTA’S LOVETT SCHOOL UPS THE MULTIPURPOSE ROOM PARADIGM WITH DANLEY

lovett_school.JPG

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – JANUARY 2010: Established in 1926 in midtown Atlanta by forward-thinking educator Ms. Eva Edwards Lovett, the Lovett School continues a tradition of excellence with over 99% of its students going on to attend four-year colleges. The private school has some 1,400 students in kindergarten through twelfth grade at any one time. A recent “75th Anniversary Campaign” raised over $55 million in funds to expand facilities, most notably for the addition of a new middle school. The centerpiece of the middle school project is a 500-seat multipurpose room, serving as an assembly space for the entire middle school body and as an indoor recreation facility. The new multipurpose room relies on Danley loudspeakers to deliver crisp, intelligible audio for both music and spoken word in an acoustical environment that more like a gym than a theater. more

berklee_college.JPG

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS: Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts is one of the most widely recognized and respected institutions of higher education for students seeking careers in the music industry.

With alumni earning more than 175 Grammy Awards, Berklee continues that tradition of relevance today by offering degrees with unparalleled depth and breadth across the many facets that make the music industry hum. In a move inspired both by pedagogy and recognition of the enduring role of high-end analog equipment in the recording industry, the Music Production and Engineering Department recently announced that it will replace three of its existing consoles with three 32-channel API Legacy Plus consoles. more
