Kal David, 79. Singer/guitarist/songwriter died from pneumonia complications. His band "The Fabulous Rhinestones" was one of the best bands from the seventies that no one ever heard of. He went on to play with Johnny Rivers, John Mayall, and then his own band The Real Deal. Kal also did voice over and was the voice of Disney's Sonny Eclipse. Rest in peace Kal.

oh that one hurts.   I saw the Rhinestones many times.  They were fantastic.

I have a basic Whirlwind 48x8 passive splitter with 2x W4 outputs. All channels work fine, no bent pins or mashed sockets. Works like it should. Looking for $1500 plus shipping

I've put it off for way too long.  I'm using Allen Heath stuff, the SQ, GLD and QU.  I'm leaning towards Dlive, but am concerned about A&H coming out with something new.
What's everyone's thoughts?  Anyone have a good crystal ball on the next generation of desks?

I think this is the newest one from them.

QSC recently split into Q-SYS and Live Sound divisions with a rebranding of all install products under Q-Sys.

The install market is significantly larger than live sound and QSC hasn't been quiet there. They pivoted to conferencing and were an early entrant into audio and video hardware certified for Microsoft Teams and Zoom. They also have decided to take on Shure and are releasing their own installation beamforming microphones.

What hardware/VOIP provider do you guys normally use with QSC Core DSPs? Small office(commercial)

We need a crystal ball for the reliable delivery of silicon wafers.

Rack mounted live sound amplifiers are not selling in the quantities that they once were.

Besides what's already been mentioned (supply chain issues, powered speakers), QSC has positioned themselves where they're competing with many other manufacturers across multiple product lines. Every loudspeaker manufacturer I can think of is now partnered up with an amplifier supplier- but none of them are with QSC except QSC themselves. And QSC speakers do not compete in the touring market, and most if not all of their MI products are powered. Also QSC was very late to the game with rack mount DSP power amplifiers and none of them are touring class. The PLD series is an expensive MI grade product in today's market. I really wanted to like PLD but the poor build quality and lack of a network port really limited it's usefulness IMO. They're "OK" but nowhere near the value that QSC used to be known for delivering with the PL, PLX, MX, EX series.

I'm speculating, but I think the majority of the "touring" grade amps were being sold to power legacy speaker systems. And that market dropped off drastically over the last 2.5 years but was likely already declining rapidly. Combine that with supply chain issues and we have the present situation.

QSC has always been an innovative company. Q-SYS is a great line and that's where their focus is now. But I too lament the discontinuation of many great power amplifier models with no direct replacement available.

Just going by the photos in the links they look like updated versions of the headsets that Clearcom and Production Intercom sold for years perhaps OEM'd from the same source. If so they are pretty bullet proof.

I enjoy this topic.

An analysis of a large number of concert SPL logfiles reveals that max Peak C levels are typically 32-35 dB above the average A-Slow SPL, which takes into account both crest factor and the C-A of the material. At typical concert levels (A Slow L50 around 99 - 100 dB), we can expect to see max Peak C levels in the mid-130's.

The MEMS elements used in smartphones are simply not designed to withstand such SPL, and many popular measurement mics aren't either.

Our Smaart Gear Choices Guide has some information to consider when choosing measurement microphones and interfaces for concert-level SPL measurement.

Some data: https://blogs.cdc.gov/niosh-science-blog/2014/04/09/sound-apps/

https://asa.scitation.org/doi/full/10.1121/1.4964639

The attached figure, which comes from the second link, shows very wide error bars for internal microphones (and between apps). As for using a Radio Shack meter as a reference, that's sort of a "turtles all the way down" situation. If you are afforded the opportunity, put 4 or 5 of them next to each other and observe the results - you will have more questions than answers.

The fun thing about those units is that they have a mic output on the side, which means you can connect it to a measurement rig and do a mic compare vs a measurement rig.

Due to the size of the diaphragm, they exhibit a very large hi-mid peak on-axis to a sound source which goes away with a change in orientation, despite the claims of the spec sheet.

Mobile devices (without external microphones) and "party favor" handheld meters are certainly entertaining and are useful for relative measurements (is the show the same level as yesterday?) but I certainly would not use them to make any determinations in situations where the displayed value needs to be meaningful.

Very interesting. Between the UMIK, Radio Shack meter, app, and my poor ears, I was able to determine it was extremely effing loud lol. How accurate the actual number is, Iím not sure but it is as almost panic attack inducing.
