ASHLY AMPS SERVE UP RARE AND WELL DONE AT PERRY’S STEAKHOUSE AND GRILLE

TEXAS – FEBRUARY 2013: Perry’s Steakhouse and Grille truly is rare and well done. From its humble beginnings as a butcher shop more than thirty years ago, Perry’s has grown to become one of the premier steakhouses in Texas. Today with nine locations, each uniquely customized to the neighboring community, Perry’s Steakhouse is located in greater Houston, Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio.

One of the premier A/V integration firms in Central Texas, Intelligent Lighting Services, has designed and installed state-of-the-art sound systems in the most recent Perry’s Steakhouse locations. Intelligent Lighting Services’ Eric Bernstein recommended Ashly’s ne8250pe eight-channel Network Amp with integrated Protea™ signal processor for the Katy, Dallas and San Antonio restaurants.

“I was already looking to make some changes after the first installation at Austin because the big-name DSP we installed there seemed to time-out every other day,” explained Bernstein. “I’d had previous good experiences with Ashly gear and knew that it was reliable. Since I already knew we’d be using Tannoy CMS801 ceiling-mounted loudspeakers, I had my tech wire up an Ashly ne8250 amplifier and another from the manufacturer we had used at the first location. I did a blind comparison in controlled conditions and came away convinced that their clientele would hear no perceptible difference, at least with those loudspeakers. So there it was: an affordable, great-sounding amplifier with optional on-board DSP that I knew was flexible and reliable. And to top it off, Ashly is a nice, contractor-friendly manufacturer. We went forward in the next three locations – Dallas, San Antonio, and Katy, Texas – with the Ashly ne8250pe at the heart of the design.”

Because ambient live music is an integral part of the Perry’s experience, all three locations feature an Allen & Heath console adjoining a modest stage. Its output joins a handful of cable TV channels, a Muzak player, and a wireless microphone at the input to the Ashly Protea DSP environment. Because each of the Perry’s Steakhouse locations is unique, the Dallas location uses four Ashly ne8250pe eight-channel amplifiers, whereas San Antonio and Katy use three. The Ashly Protea DSP Matrix Mixer is used as a room combiner in the private dining rooms, allowing the restaurant to host any size dinner meeting or event. Other common zones include the bar area, lobby, hallways, restrooms, entry, patio plus four or five private dining rooms. Because the Ashly ne8250pe includes separate processing on each output, Bernstein was able to perfectly signal align all of the zones for maximum impact and coherence.

User control is simple. At the Dallas and Katy locations, each zone features a Ashly WR-5 programmable wall-mounted remote. Its simple push buttons allow selection of different input sources and overall volume. The San Antonio location adds a URC KP-4000 wired controller behind the bar for more in-depth control, along with a URC MX-5000 wireless remote that allows the manager to make changes on the fly from any location.

Perry’s Steakhouse and Grille is currently considering new location sites. Because the owner has fallen in love with the sound of the newest restaurants and the way his team is able to so easily control them, Bernstein’s Ashly-based design will serve as the blueprint for all future Perry’s Steakhouse and Grille locations moving forward.

Tributaries’ Unveils Improved PROFIT Connectors

Orlando, FL—January 2013—Tributaries is proud to introduce the all-new PROFIT connectors. The ever-popular PROFIT connectors have been vastly improved now requiring 50% LESS effort for compression and constructed of high impact plastic. The improvement is made possible thanks to the merger of “Pro-Connect” and “Snap N’ Seal” who were purchased by Belden, these two fantastic designs have combined to yield a new connector with the performance of “Pro-Connect” and the ease of “Snap N’ Seal”.

The new connectors feature an elegant gunmetal finish standard for all models. In the coming months, new signal identifier color rings will become available which will conveniently fit into the indented area just below the connector head. Connectors will only require one silver-crimping die to assemble the connectors; this enables the number of components to be kept down only to the essential items, simplifies installation and eliminates the need to swap out crimping dies on the compression tool.

The new style will retain the key features such as: visible entry for RCA and BNC and, 360° radial compressions. The connectors will continue to work with a number of different industry compression tools. While Tributaries won’t be the only manufacturer to offer this new connector, it is the only manufacturer to offer unprecedented quality control performed in its Orlando-based headquarters. Tributaries also guarantees all compression connectors fit on the coax sold by the company.

The newly designed F, RCA, and BNC for RG59 and RG6 are now available. Connectors for TRIBMINI will be available later this year.

ASHLY KLR-3200 AMPLIFIERS POWER UP DOWNSTREAM CASINO AND RESORT

QUAPAW, OKLAHOMA – JANUARY 2013: With its parking lot in Kansas, its main entrance in Missouri, and its gaming facilities and guest accommodations in Oklahoma, Downstream Casino Resort is quite literally on top of the region’s historic tri-state junction. The Quapaw Tribe-operated facility opened in 2008 and attracts approximately two million visitors annually. Building on its tremendous success, Downstream Casino Resort undertook an ambitious expansion plan to add a six-story tower with 155 additional guest rooms, restaurants, event spaces, and spa services. The Tribe hired A1 Audio of nearby Branson, Missouri to design and install a comprehensive distributed audio system, and A1 Audio delivered, in part by specifying a modest rack of high-powered, low-cost Ashly KLR-3200 amplifiers.

A1 Audio got its start in the 1960s in the energized venues of Las Vegas, Nevada. Its reputation for putting on successful shows with nary an unprofessional hiccup launched successful ventures in Hollywood, California, and, later, Branson, Missouri. Today, the Missouri office upholds the unwavering commitment to service that made the company so successful at its start. For years, Downstream Casino Resort has relied on A1 Audio for live show rentals and technical support. When plans materialized for the new expansion, the Quapaw called on A1 Audio to bring that same level of professionalism to its new facilities.

For reasons outside of A1 Audio’s control, the timeline on the new project was incredibly tight. “Massive crews from all the trades swarmed the new construction,” explained Pete Savel, vice president of A1 Audio. “At one point when we were pulling cable, they had something like 250 guys on drywall! It was a huge undertaking.” Despite the rush, the new system is elegant and refined, in consonance with the architecture and professionalism of the casino and resort staff.

In strategic locations throughout the tower, eighty Community loudspeakers from the 70-Volt D4, D6, and D8 wide-dispersion series deliver articulate, full-frequency content. In a few locations with less than six inches of ceiling space, low-profile Community D4LP deliver comparable performance. Yamaha DME-N series processors provide all input conditioning and matrixing, and an AMX system provides user control via an intuitive and engaging iPad interface. Five dual-channel Ashly KLR-3200 amplifiers power the entire system.

“The Ashly KLR-Series amplifiers are tremendously powerful, yet remarkably affordable,” said Savel. “Nothing else comes close on a performance-to-cost basis. We’ve used them in several installations now, and they worked from day one without a single glitch. That’s the kind of reliability we count on.”

LIGHTNING-STRUCK MONASTERY BLESSED BY ASHLY AMPLIFIERS

ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA: Mount Saint Benedict Monastery in Erie, Pennsylvania is the spiritual center of the Benedictine Sisters of Erie and a nursing facility for elderly women. Its main chapel seats approximately one hundred individuals, and the sisters hold two well-attended services a day. Recently, the chapel was struck by lightning, which damaged all of the electronics in its sound reinforcement system beyond repair. The company that had installed that system, Fact AV Technologies of North East, Pennsylvania, quickly stepped in with a loaner system. In only a month’s time, Fact AV had designed and installed a new system based on Ashly ne Series amplifiers. All of the sisters and nursing home residents noticed the new system’s improved intelligibility and clarity.

“Almost all of the sisters can hear way better than I can,” laughed Eric Johnson, owner of Fact AV Technologies. “When we were commissioning the original system, they complained of a high-pitched hum. I couldn’t hear it, and only one of the three guys on my crew could hear it… barely. But they were right. I tracked down the problem and removed the hum.” In addition, everyone who attends services at Mount Saint Benedict Monastery regularly calibrates their ears to acoustic music. The services are frequently supported by woodwind ensembles, acoustic guitar, piano, bell choir, an a cappella choir, and myriad guest musicians.

Johnson duplicated the original system’s processing and user control, with a few minor updates. Ten wired and six wireless microphones, and a CD player provide input to a Lectrosonics processor. An AMX user-control system provides customized control of input selection and output volume. None of the building’s twelve-inch coaxial loudspeakers were damaged by the lightning strike. In contrast, Johnson took the amplification in a new direction in the new system. An eight-channel Ashly ne8250 powers the main speakers for the sanctuary. A two-channel Ashly ne800 powers the stage monitors, and a two-channel Ashly ne800.70 powers the 70-volt systems on the building’s first and second floors.

“Ashly’s feature set per cost is unsurpassed,” said Johnson. “Ashly offers a range of configurations that are very useful to me as I design optimal systems in different scenarios. Ashly amplifiers, and the ne Series in particular, are lightweight and compact. The units are always reliable. I’ve almost never had service issues, but when I have, Ashly’s support staff turns the repairs around right away or sends advance replacements. Either way, they take care of me.”

He continued, “In addition, they sound great. As you might imagine, the monastery is very quiet, and the amps are perfectly silent. And their fidelity is excellent.” Despite all of the similarities between the old system and the new system, the sisters and the nursing home residents have noticed an obviously discernable increase in the system’s intelligibility and clarity. “The new Ashly amplifiers have played a huge role in that improvement,” concluded Johnson.

DANLEY LOUDSPEAKERS REMEDY NEIGHBORHOOD NOISE COMPLAINTS AT ATLANTA’S 24/7 IHOP CHURCH

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – JANUARY 2013: IHOP Atlanta is a 24/7 church that spans the time between its frequent services with continuous prayer meetings, a fact that lends sincerity to its full name: International House of Prayer Atlanta. In the year that followed after its October 2004 founding, IHOP rapidly transitioned to the 24/7 cycle, and the prayer meeting that convened on February 12, 2006 is still going without interruption! However, noise complaints from neighbors, engendered primarily by the high-energy rock bands that play a few times a week, threatened the church’s M.O. To correct the problem, IHOP Atlanta hired Pensacola-based A/V integration firm Soundscapes. Now, Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers, which have tremendous pattern control even at low frequencies, focus energy on the congregants and away from the walls. As a result, the “listen-to-leak” ratio is greatly improved, and the church is enjoying Danley’s clean, transparent sound as a bonus.

“Danley’s pattern control is the key to this installation,” said Langston Holland, owner and chief designer with Soundscapes. “I flew three rows of three Danley SH-100s. The patterns hit the sidewalls at about four feet, which puts church members in the coverage as they walk the aisles praying, but deflects excess energy down to the carpeted floor. Moreover, the coverage patterns from each row just kiss the patterns of the rows before or after, so you primarily hear sound from a single loudspeaker, no matter where you are.” To make that work, the first row is facing almost straight down, the last row is at 45 degrees, and the middle row is intermediate. Holland hung them as low as possible without threatening sight lines, thereby increasing perceived SPLs according to the inverse square law.

Because music is such an important component of IHOP Atlanta’s services and prayer meetings, Holland avoided “over-delaying” the middle and rear speakers, a trick that helps locate sounds to the stage via the precedence effect but that also tends to smear them out, which is most noticeable on staccato elements like rim shots. Instead, each row of Danley SH-100s is delayed per its actual distance from the stage. A Peavey Media Matrix delivers the processing, including a 95Hz crossover for the church’s existing subwoofer array. Three new QSC amplifiers join three existing QSC amplifiers to power the system.

To add excitement and dimension to their mixes, Holland installed the new Danley SH-100s with stereo output. But to avoid unintended consequences of operator error, he blended the center loudspeaker so that everybody gets at least some left and right coverage. “They’re grinning ear to ear,” he reported. “They’ve never actually heard their stereo effects before, and now they’re hearing delays ping back and forth and the subtle tails of reverbs. With the old system, their console was a total mess of radical EQ adjustments, but with the Danley speakers, everything is basically flat. The few minor adjustments are for aesthetics and impact, not to fix problems.”

The new Danley system also gives IHOP Atlanta more clean headroom than it had previously. “That was initially a problem,” Holland said. “It sounded so good that they didn’t realize they were pushing louder than ever!” He inserted some limiting to curb their exuberance. Measurements taken at the neighbor’s house before and after the new Danley system was installed demonstrate that everything above the subwoofers is completely fixed and there is no perceptible or measureable energy there. “The band runs 104dB SPL C-Slow for their Thursday night youth services, and it’s pristine in the auditorium,” said Holland. “Inside the neighbor’s house it measures 50dB SPL unweighted at about 60Hz for about four minutes before and after the preaching, which is the loudest portion of their set.”

SAN ANTONIO’S FAMOUS HILTON PALACIO DEL RIO SIMPLIFIES MEETING ROOM FUNCTIONALITY VIA SYMNET SOLUS 8 STANDALONE FIXED I/O DSP

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS – JANUARY 2013: With San Antonio’s gorgeous downtown River Walk just steps to the west, the city’s well-booked convention center across the street to the east, and the Alamo historic site a block away to the north, the Hilton Palacio del Rio is at the center of a fabulous Texas experience. It delivers the perfect mix of luxury, location, and event support and wins over first-time visitors, earning their repeat business. The hotel possesses over 27,000 square-feet of flexible meeting space split between the 4th floor and the 22nd floor. Recently, the hotel gutted those areas to modernize both their aesthetic and their functionality. Audio/video integrator Good Thunder Provisioning of Montgomery, Texas designed and installed the new system, centering it on four Symetrix SymNet Solus 8 open-architecture DSP units.

“The renovation of the 4th & 22nd floor Meeting Rooms & Ballrooms was undertaken on very fast track – you might call it a hyper track,” said Robert Slaughter, proprietor of Good Thunder Provisioning. “The start date for the demolition of the existing building interior & audio system was July 15, and the first use of the new system was September 27th.” The incredibly short timeframe required advanced planning on the part of everyone involved and tight coordination with the general contractor, the architect, the in-house audio/visual provider (Swank Audio Visual), and the hotel. Slaughter’s sound reinforcement design focused on reproducing high-quality, intelligible speech and engaging foreground music.

Importantly, he kept the interests of the in-house A/V provider in mind. “Too many times we see very high-end, super-technical systems installed in hotels that end up limiting the revenue of the in-house A/V provider,” said Slaughter. “That ultimately limits the commissions paid to the hotel.” The new system exceeds the standards of the International Association of Conference Centers.

With potentially dozens of subdivided rooms, the Hilton Palacio del Rio can take on serious overflow from the nearby conference center or can host sizable conferences or other events all on its own. Input plates in each divisible space provide an XLR input for line-level signals, a CAT6 connection that links to a projector and the rack locations, and HDMI & VGA for connection to a projector or wall-mounted LED monitors. Wireless microphone systems provide the principle audio input for conferences. House music, which is processed by an Aphex Aural Exciter, provides an additional input option. TOA DA-250DH multi-channel digital amplifiers power scores of TOA F-122CU2 full-range ceiling speakers.

Four Symetrix SymNet Solus 8 standalone fixed I/O DSP, each with eight inputs and eight outputs, handle all of the input conditioning, routing logic, and loudspeaker conditioning for the system. As one might imagine, the routing is complex, with numerous zones adding or subtracting speakers in different locations. “Our staff has had a very long and positive history with Symetrix, starting with the Express Cobra series,” said Slaughter. “The Solus is a great product. It’s flexible, easy to program, and great sounding. Adding the Symetrix ARC-2e and the Axiomtek Touch Panel for user control makes the choice of Symetrix a no-brainier. Cost was also a factor, and by using these products we were able to come out better than we had budgeted.”

The user control is made available in two layers. First, twenty Symetrix ARC-2e remote wall panels allow for the line level control of each room section, music level control of each room section, and selection of optional high-pass filtering for improved voice intelligibility. Second, a pair of Axiomtek GOT-5100T-830 touch panels at each rack location duplicate those controls and add room combining, auxiliary input/output routing, and selection of additional music sources. Lighting control will be included in the near future. “The Symetrix ARCs offer a wide range of control features and functions that are flexible and easy to install,” said Slaughter. “They are an excellent choice. Axiomtek Touch Panels are rugged and always work right out of the box. Their reputation is great.”

Once Hotel management heard and controlled the new system, they asked Good Thunder Provisioning to provide new sound reinforcement systems for the hotel’s restaurant and bar areas in the near term and for the lobby next year. The new restaurant/bar system will use a single Symetrix SymNet Solus 8 DSP to deliver two zones with multiple music, cable TV, and iPod inputs. Four Symetrix ARC-2e remote wall panels provide source selection and level control for both zones. Slaughter will use the same TOA loudspeakers and amplifiers to maintain consistency.

Robert Slaughter is the senior project manager for Hairel Enterprises in Conroe, Texas and owns Good Thunder Provisioning.
