SYMETRIX JUPITER AND ARC-WEB PERFORM AT THE COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION

cma_lobby.JPGNASHVILLE, TENNESSEE: Although the Country Music Association is perhaps best known for its annual CMA Awards show, the organization is constantly working to support and promote country music. The CMA’s headquarters in Nashville is a hive of activity and is frequently visited by the genre’s biggest stars and its most promising freshmen. Recently, the CMA decided to convert its atrium into a small-scale performance venue for intimate concerts, parties, and meetings. Morris Light & Sound of Nashville installed its sound reinforcement system, relying on the Symetrix Jupiter 8 processor paired with the Symetrix ARC-WEB Internet-based interface to provide system conditioning and intuitive user control that is accessible from the staffs’ smartphones.

“The idea was that, say, Garth Brooks or some other big name could stop by the CMA and play a small acoustic set as a ‘thank you’ to the staff,” explained John more

ASHLY’S PEMA AND KLR AMPS DELIVER THE AUDIO GOODIES TO SWIFT’S ATTIC

swifts_attic.JPGAUSTIN, TEXAS – MAY 2012: Located in the city’s bustling warehouse and variously billed as a tapas restaurant, a gastropub, or an American small plate restaurant, Swift’s Attic is a refreshing addition to the bar and restaurant scene in Austin, Texas. Swift’s Attic occupies the second floor of what was built to be the Swift Brother’s meat-packing facilities over one-hundred years ago, and its interior design highlights the building’s old charms in a style that one reviewer lovingly described as “steampunk meets lounge.” With plans for hosting DJs and bands on weekend evenings and a computer loaded with hand-selected tunes for the balance of the week, music is an important component of the restaurant’s casual, hip atmosphere. Austin’s DB Commercial AV designed and installed a killer sound reinforcement system centered on Ashly Audio’s Pema combination DSP/multi-channel amplifier and KLR Series high-efficiency amplifiers.

SYMETRIX JUPITER 8 PROCESSOR DELIVERS AUDIOPHILE QUALITY FOR HOME THEATER SYSTEMS

jupiter_hometheater.JPGWINTER PARK, FLORIDA – MAY 2012: Storch Entertainment Systems was recently contacted by Phil Kean Designs, the builder of a luxury home, in Winter Park, Florida. The homeowner, a passionate music lover, was eager to possess a world-class media room with sound reproduction so faithful it would rival even the great control rooms of the world. Michael Storch, owner of Storch Entertainment Systems and kindred media-phile, oversaw the room’s design, calling in experts such as Michael Chafee to help make the room absolutely perfect. In addition to superlative acoustical design and top-of-the-line components, the room benefitted, in Storch’s words, “by an order of magnitude” from Chafee’s careful system calibration using a Symetrix Jupiter 8 digital signal processor that resides between the Denon surround-sound processor and the self-powered Genelec loudspeakers.

“The idea was to recreate the listening environment that the mix engineer of the more

NEW ASHLY COMMERCIAL MIXER/AMPLIFIER ENDS UP IN FUNERAL HOME

hillcrest.JPGBEDFORD PARK, OHIO – MAY 2012: With increasing frequency, the administrators at Hillcrest Memorial Park Cemetery in Bedford Heights, Ohio were hearing the same simple request; a request they could not properly fill. During visitation prior to a funeral, the bereaved asked to play their own music. Very often, it was the music cherished by the deceased or music that was especially grounding in such a trying time. But beyond supplying an inelegant boom box, Hillcrest had no infrastructure for music playback. The administrators called on Audio Video Interiors and Safety Technologies (AVIST) of nearby Middleburg Heights, Ohio to provide a cost-effective solution. AVIST director Gary Matthews designed a simple, robust system around the new 3-input, 1-output Ashly Audio TM-360 public address mixer/amplifier.

“I have a lot of customers who are looking for very simple, very cost-effective solutions for straightforward sound reinforcement situations,” more

A STEREO PAIR OF DANLEY JERICHO HORNS HERALD A NEW REFERENCE SPEAKER MODEL FOR CHURCH AUDIO

goodlettsville_tn_church.JPGGOODLETTSVILLE, TENNESSEE – MAY 2012: The parishioners at First Baptist Church of Goodlettsville, Tennessee are the first churchgoers in the world to enjoy the exacting fidelity, soul-lifting power, and clean, even coverage of a pair of Danley Sound Labs Jericho JH-90 full-range, point-source loudspeakers, heretofore installed mainly in sports arenas and stadiums as well as concert venues. Professional Audio Solutions, Inc. designed and installed the first-of-its-kind project under the leadership of Scott Oliver, director of contracting and engineering. Once Oliver included the costs of labor and amplifier channels, he discovered that purchasing and installing a stereo pair of Jericho JH-90s would be less expensive – and far better sounding – than a conventional multi-box solution.

Like many churches, Goodlettsville FBC transitioned over the years from having only traditional services to offering a mix of traditional and contemporary services. Its old PA system consisted more

ASHLY GEAR SHOWCASED AT DETROIT’S INSTITUTE OF ART

detroit-institute-of-art.JPGDETROIT, MICHIGAN: The Detroit Institute of Art (DIA) is the second-largest municipally-owned museum in the nation. Its collection, which represents a balanced sample of the world’s cultures arrayed across centuries of human development, is valued at over one-billion dollars, and the DIA displays much of that collection in over one-hundred galleries spread across 658,000 square feet of floor space. Consonant with its cultural significance, the DIA hosts events ranging from art openings to private functions. One of its primary event spaces is adjacent to the galleries and recently benefitted from a sound system upgrade that centers on Ashly Audio’s PEMA integrated processor/amplifier and FR-16 network fader remote control.

“The walls, floors, and ceiling of the event space are solid stone,” observed Dennis Phillips, the owner of Phillips Pro Audio, the company that designed and installed the new audio system. “It’s an art institute, more
