Ash Manor Sports Centre


Ash Manor Sports Centre needed to upgrade their portable sound system on a budget and wanted the additions to be integrated into the proposed new system in next years budget

We opted to replace the aging 10″ speakers with 15″ high power units that are capable of handling the digital power of the proposed STA-500D class D amplifier. A stand alone BT-1B Bluetooth adaptor was also added to the system so that near field connectivity was catered for

Southcote Primary School, Reading


We have served Southcote Primary School in Reading for many years and we were very pleased to be asked to upgrade the main hall sound system to include two new specialist CD players – the first was a CD-112BT offering CD, USB and SD card playback and Bluetooth connectivity. The second unit was an AD-400 which provided CD, USB and SD card playback and an FM radio

The combination of these two media players provides the school with up to date sound system functions for drama, music, assemblies and parent evenings etc.

another clever little (DI) box

DIB-100 DI box

DI or direct injection boxes allow you to connect all of your line level sources to a balanced microphone input on your mixer or amplifier – allowing long leads between the keyboard, laptop, CD player etc. and the desk

Keep the DI box close to the source (keyboard, laptop, CD player etc.) and have a long XLR to XLR balanced mic lead to the mixer. We have found passive DI boxes to be the most convenient and versatile but do remember many DI boxes do not like having phantom power on their XLR inputs as some may use centre tapped isolating transformers

This configuration keeps noise at bay, makes hum loops a thing of the past, matches impedances and levels and is just so simple – more
