Avocation’s SR-2 Turns One Serial Port into Two

04.31.2009 — In a recent Tech Tip, Russound gave a nod to a little problem solver called the SR-2, which gives two control systems bi-directional serial control of a product that has only one RS-232 port.

The adapter, offered by Avocation Systems, facilitates RX, TX and ground signals and is capable of transmission speeds up to 460800 baud.

David Dickinson, the integration specialist for Russound’s Dealer Services Department noted, “The SR-2 is the perfect solution that our customers have been looking for. Finally, a widget that is simple and does what we want and need it to do.”

Avocation sales manager Trent Mulligan says, “There’s virtually no thought in using it,” says “You power it, plug in your devices and it works.”

SHURE SUPER 55 PACKS MODERN MUSCLE IN A VINTAGE BODY

Super 55NILES, IL, May 13, 2009 — Once in a great while, a product transcends its basic function and becomes an icon – a cultural artifact. Most fade away as they are eclipsed by new technology or changing tastes, but some make such an indelible mark that their appeal never wanes. The Shure model 55SH Series II Unidyne® Microphone is one such icon; it’s the professional audio industry’s answer to the ’65 Ford Mustang or a pair of Levi’s 501 blue jeans.

It’s been 70 years since the original Unidyne – the first single-element unidirectional microphone — debuted in 1939. Now, the model once advertised as ‘The Microphone That Needs No Name’ is getting an upgrade. Shure has taken the iconic 55SH body that has been in production since 1951, dropped in a new supercardioid motor, and added some vibrant blue color. The resulting hot rod has the same retro-cool look as the original when parked on a mic stand but with a contemporary upgrade in performance. more
