Sennheiser Electronic Audiophile HD 800

Sennheiser Electronic
Audiophile HD 800: A unique transducer and ear cup design are two of the key design features of Sennheiser's HD 800 headphones. This audiophile model uses a 56mm sound transducer (reportedly the largest to be found in any dynamic headphones) and an ear cup design that directs sound waves to the ear at a slight angle. The vibrating part of the diaphragm is not a circular surface area but a ring, which is able to set the entire air volume over the transducer into motion, generating the full-bodied sound of the HD 800. This annular design is patented by Sennheiser.

Higher power versions of these filters will provide balanced combiner modules rated at 10kW+ with only a slight increase in footprint.

Remote control
Sine Systems
Plus Sine: This simple, user-friendly PC-based remote control and data acquisition system can be used with the RFC-1/B from Sine Systems. It can be purchased with a new Sine Systems Remote and is backward-compatible with the existing systems. Detailed data acquisition logging is managed by the parameters that the user establishes. Data collection and reporting is only limited by hard drive space. Viewing data is simple using real-time trend charts where a user can view multiple analog or status channels at once and see their time relationship to each other. Customized reports can be accessed immediately or sent via scheduled e-mails in the format the user chooses such as PDF, RTF, Microsoft Word files.

Studer Relink

I/O sharing system
Relink: Relink (Resource Linking) I/O sharing system can link numerous Studer consoles in various locations of a broadcast facility to allow audio source and control data sharing across a wide network. Based totally on Studer's existing Score system, no additional hardware or breakout boxes are required to complete the network. Any combination of Studer Vista, the On Air 2500 and 3000 consoles, as well as Route 6000 can link with each other via Relink, communicating over TCP/IP. Other console-based networking systems on the market are often restricted to a single type of console. Relink is scaleable, flexible, and can start with a simple link between two Studer consoles, and scale up to multi-console systems using a two-step topology where all signals are matrixed through a central device, for example the Studer Route 6000 system.

Superior Electric Stabiline BVR Series

AC voltage regulators
Superior Electric
Stabiline BVR Series: The BVR Series offers a compact AVR package. With a new (patent-pending), solid-state step regulating design that eliminates full load carrying transformers and servo-motor control schemes, the BVR is up to 40 percent lighter than other devices being offered. The input range is the range of input voltages over which the unit will maintain constant output voltage. BVR models are offered in two standard ranges – narrow and wide range to accommodate various installation needs (source stability and critical load requirements) as well as site location. The power that must be corrected is greater for wide range units than narrow range units. The Series features no moving control parts or fans, all models offer individual phase control, NEMA 1 enclosures allow for easy wiring access, it has low audible noise and low added harmonic distortion.
