FEATURE ESSAY:

1. Synopsis describing the project goals, special features, or nuances.

The clients’ passion for both music and movies required that the room serve a dual purpose. While maintaining an environment that was aesthetically congruent with the design of the rest of the home, the clients desired an area for critical music listening. The goal was that those characteristics would carry over to the home theater experience. Video quality played an equal role of importance to the audio. Room isolation and acoustic treatment was also a major focus of the project. The clients’ involvement throughout the decision making process was invaluable and refreshing. This is apparent with their ability to answer their friends’ questions about the system…right down to which cables were used. more

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
