SYMETRIX ZONE MIX 760 BRINGS COUNTRY LIFESTYLE BACK TO HURRICANE HIT WAUCHULA, FLORIDA

wauchula_gazebo.JPGWAUCHULA, FLORIDA – AUGUST 2009: Home to some 4,500 Floridians, the quaint town of Wauchula serves up a country lifestyle with proximity to Tampa, the Gulf Coast, Lake Okeechobee, the Everglades, and even Disney World. But the city is an attraction in and of itself, with a beautiful historic downtown that has retained its vibrancy and a full calendar of community events, including holiday parades and frequent concerts. But in recent years, Wauchula had been more focused on rebuilding than relaxing after not one, not two, but three hurricanes devastated its buildings, houses, and infrastructure in 2004. Only now emerging from that process, the town is pleased to have a brand new audio system with which to enjoy those community events that so define its idyllic summers. more

KLEIN + HUMMEL MONITORS TAKE MANHATTAN

ianstynes_brittmyers.JPGNEW YORK, NEW YORK – JULY 2009: Since opening Great City Productions in the Chelsea district of Manhattan in 2003, owner Britt Myers is constantly busy. Myers and Ian Stynes split – or rather double up – the role of chief engineer and tackle projects that range from indie rock records to TV spots with the support of an accomplished team of freelance engineers and composers. Until recently, Myers felt obligated, not only to work through the weekend but, to burn precious time testing mixes on every sound system he could get his hands on. But with the purchase of two Klein + Hummel 5.1 active monitoring systems, which translate beautifully, Myers has reduced his stress level. more

ASHLY AMPS UP LANCASTER COUNTY CONVENTION CENTER

lancasterconventioncenter.JPGLANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA – JULY 2009: More than ten years in the making, the issues surrounding the building of the historic, yet thoroughly modern, Lancaster County Convention Center (LCCC) will live long in local lore. There were many delays. But the biggest holdup arose from the need to incorporate the landmark façade of Lancaster’s former Watt & Shand department store, which used to be on the National Register of Historic Places, into the plans. The delay, however, had an upside. LCCC’s comprehensive A/V system benefitted from network-ready Ashly NE8250 amplifiers, which didn’t exist when the system was originally designed! more
