Representing a company with double-digit growth, John Sexton showed off Ashly Audio’s new line of networkable remote control devices and this impressed me as being the right type of product at the right time. With staffing shrunk to almost nothing in most places, the Ashly RD-8C and RW-8C remotes allow sound control from a remote location and allow just about anyone to figure out how it works right away. Red, yellow and green color coding on the light for each sound channel lets operators know exactly when they’ve gone too far on the volume level. Anyone who can decipher a stop light can use it. Also on display was the PEMA (Protea Equipped Media Amplifier) that combines open-architecture DSP functionality with Ashly’s dependable amps. The wall mounted remote control modules attracted quite a bit of attention with ease of installation in a standard wall box as one of the big drawing points. John kept pretty busy with interested new prospects so I left him to the crowd and continued exploring the new remote control modules on my own. They were connected so that I could try them out and this really added to the “I want this gizmo” feeling.
