KUGAARUK, NUNAVUT – DECEMBER 2010: Home to approximately eight-hundred native Inuit and a handful of southerners, the municipality of Kugaaruk brushes up against the Arctic Ocean, in the far northern Nunavut Territory of Canada. It is the location of Canada’s coldest recorded wind chill (-78 degrees Celsius) and a place where the day is seldom punctuated by a rising or setting sun. It is also the location of very favorable seal hunting and a place where polar bear sightings are commonplace. In their meetings every two weeks, Kugaaruk council members rely on a conference system so that Christopher Amautinuar can translate between English and Inuktitut. Kugaaruk recently replaced an aged and problematic conference system with a new Sennheiser conference system that delivers spoken word with perfect clarity and intelligibility. more

Tube-Tech Celebrates 25 Years of Analog Warmth

tube_tech_25th.JPGCOPENHAGEN, DENMARK – NOVEMBER 2010: For twenty-five years, engineers and producers the world over have associated the no-nonsense blue faceplate and white typeface of TUBE-TECH analog processors with the lush, dimensional sound they impart to any audio that flows through them. After 25 years in business, TUBE-TECH president John G. Petersen continues to craft their equipment with simple, elegant circuitry using only premium-grade components. From the start, Petersen designed TUBE-TECH gear using only vacuum tubes in the active signal path and only transformers on the inputs and outputs. Since the first the design of the first Program Equalizer PE 1A in 1985, over 15,000 TUBE-TECH units have shipped from the headquarters of parent company Lydkraft in Denmark. Because their lifetimes are measured in decades, almost every one of those units is still helping make the music of today sound much better than it would have otherwise.

Before TUBE-TECH became a reality, Petersen had received a degree in electrical engineering from Danish Post and Telegraph and took a job in 1972 at the Danish Broadcasting Company (DBC). In his role as maintenance engineer, he received factory training at Solid State Logic, EMT, Studer, Sony, Neumann, NTP, and Lyrec. His genius for inspecting, understanding, and repairing audio circuits paved the way for TUBE-TECH. “A friend of mine was opening MOX Studio in Copenhagen in the mid-1980s,” said Petersen. “I helped him refurbish all of the gear that was going into it, including two Pultec equalizers. I was skeptical about those boxes. They looked like they belonged in the city dump! But they tested nicely and, more importantly, they sounded amazing.” more

Jünger Audio Opens A New Office In China

With China now the world’s second-largest economy – and with an economic growth rate of around 9% a year – it makes sense for European companies to have a dedicated office in the country so that they are better placed to tap into this lucrative market.

German manufacturer Jünger Audio came to this conclusion some months ago and after careful research into the viability of a Chinese office it has announced the opening of Jünger Audio China. Based in Beijing, this new office is headed by Miss Jian Gao, a Chinese national with extensive experience in the broadcast and professional audio industry.

Peter Poers, Managing Director of Jünger Audio, says: “The combination of improved international relations, an expanding economy and increased foreign investment make China a very attractive business proposition for European companies. We felt from the beginning that it was imperative that our office should be headed by a Chinese national who understood both the business climate and our own industry. Jian Gao is ideally placed to fulfil this role and we are delighted that she is joining Jünger Audio as our chief representative in China.� more
