LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: TransAudio Group, the U.S. distributor for ATC (Acoustic Transducer Company) audio reference speakers, is now shipping the U.K. manufacturer’s first ever compact active three-way studio control monitor – the SCM25A Pro. Designed for positioning on a meter bridge, or rack-mountable for broadcast applications, the ATC SCM25A Pro offers very high-performance in the most compact possible form factor.

The drive units all use large diameter, under-hung voice coils for excellent dynamic range and linearity. The mid-range is ATCs world-renowned soft dome and the bass driver is a hand-built, in-house, using a carbon-paper cone with high excursion capability. On-board amplification features the company’s class A/B Mosfet output stage delivering 150W to the bass driver, 60W to the mid and 25W to the high frequency driver. All three stages are fed by 4th order critically damped crossover filters with phase compensation. The unit’s ported enclosure measures 10.4 inches (264 mm) (H) x 16.9 inches (430 mm) (W) x 16 inches (408 mm) (D). more

JESSUP, MARYLAND – JUNE 2010: A direct descendent of Saul Walker’s original 1967 design, the API 512C modular mic preamp embodies the legendary API sound and has been a mainstay of engineers for over three decades.

Legere has been working in the Toronto-area for nearly thirty years – almost as long as the API 512C has been in production. An accomplished guitar player, Legere has worked in the studio with famed producer Daniel Lanois (U2, Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan); both men grew up in Hamilton Ontario.

GAINESVILLE, GEORGIA – MAY 2010: Five years ago, Danley Sound Labs started as a divine inspiration to change the world of sound reinforcement using truly innovative loudspeaker and subwoofer designs.

At its core are Tom Danley’s innovative designs, born of his drive for flawless fidelity, his unconventional education, and his decades spent devising groundbreaking acoustical technologies for NASA. Danley Sound Labs owner Mike Hedden, longtime head of a successful AV integration firm, shapes the company’s burgeoning product line to perfectly suit the needs of contractors. Moving forward, the company is poised both to break into budget-conscious markets with its SM Series of loudspeakers and to shake the industry’s addiction to line arrays with Shaded Amplitude designs of greater power and fidelity. more

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – MAY 2010: TransAudio Group, the U.S. distributor for TRUE Systems is now shipping the PT2-500 mic pre and DI. TRUE Systems continues its contortionist legacy of packing immense-sounding microphone preamplification into tiny spaces. Descendant of the TRUE Systems Precision 8, which squeezes eight audiophile-grade preamps into a single rack space, the PT2-500 conforms to the modular 500 Series format. Like all the other preamps in the TRUE Systems family, the PT2-500 delivers stunning detail, rich analog depth, and a robust, reliable design. But the PT2-500 is 500 module sized, for audio professionals who want everything in a rack ready to use, over and over again, without buying additional power supplies and multiple racks.

The PT2-500 features up to 70 dB of high-headroom, low-noise microphone gain. An exceptionally high-quality direct input (DI) calms edgy piezos and provides a THRU jack for amping or effects. Switchable phantom power, 80 Hz high pass filter, and polarity reverse give the unit appropriate flexibility, even in its tiny, 500 Series space. Like all TRUE Systems preamps, the PT2-500 boasts a frequency response that reads like a misprint, 1.5 Hz to 600 kHz (-3 dB), ensuring that the audible and usable ultrasonic ranges are well within its linear response. more

Danley Iintroduces Weatherproof Molded, Synergy Horns at Infocomm

sm_60.JPGGAINESVILLE, GEORGIA – APRIL 2010: Danley Sound Labs, a manufacturer of innovative loudspeakers and subwoofers of uncommon fidelity, SPL, and directivity, announces the introduction of two new molded horn loudspeakers – the SM-60M and SM-60F – at InfoComm 2010. Both units feature Tom Danley’s patent-pending synergy horn technology. The SM-60F delivers full-range content, whereas the SM-60M delivers mid- and high-frequency content only. The units are similar in spirit to Danley’s flagship SH-50 full-range loudspeaker, but use fewer drivers and are constructed of molded plastic, making the stock units completely weatherproof (other Danley loudspeakers and subwoofers can be special ordered with weatherproofing at additional cost). Danley has priced the SM-60M and SM-60F to compete favorably with competitive molded horns, even though the Danley designs offer dramatically greater fidelity and directivity. more
