ev-etx-grilleIt feels like an eon since we first got to have a touch-and-feel session with the high-spec, high-powered ETX Series by EV. Indeed it was, back at the CX Roadshow 2014 in February. Finally, stock has arrived – and in LARGE quantities too. Let’s rip in and discover just… Read More »

rcf-speakers-bestRCF is a brand that has certainly come a long way in Australia. Known once mainly for their precision components – 18” woofers and high powered compression drivers, RCF also used to make, would you believe, high spec CRT cinema projectors! All that changed in 1996 with the release of the first generation of RCF powered speaker box: ART300A (along with a few other members of the first ART family). It’s no surprise that, approaching 20 years on, some of these original models are still in active service, gigging weekly around… Read More »

qsc-k-seriesSince 2009, the mighty K-Series by QSC has been making quite an impression. Then the range has grown to also include KW Series. Now that the 10,000th box has been sold in Australia, it’s the perfect time to drill in and take a closer look at our favourite models… Read More »

art415-endof-lineAs is usual throughout the year, pro audio manufacturers like to tweak their range of offerings – sometimes to ‘refresh things’ while other times it can be the addition of an upgraded model or whole product line. Unfortunately this sometimes means that a favourite product gets deleted from manufacture. So let’s have a look at RCF ART415A MkII… Read More »

It’s officially on for young and old, although rumours of Santa visiting Factory Sound can be extinguished – we found a white stick-on beard and a smelly red hat on the back seat of Tone’s car this morning. Rather disappointing to all of us, as we really wanted to believe in the fairytale. What you’re not going to believe though is the pricing he’s just dished up on RCF… Read More »

We love deals, as you’ve probably worked out by now. Sometimes we get some tasty ones put together by our suppliers – the importers of all this fine gear, and sometimes the deals are dreamt up by the manufacturers themselves. Usually though, this means that console is exactly what you want, but the speakers aren’t quite what you’re looking for – or vice versa. BUT this time we’ve put… Read More »

This week is flying – sale week always does – and so are the specials. If you’ve been keeping up with our facebook page, you will have seen a few teasers go up the last couple of days. The good news for those needing a mixer..we’ve got stacks (literally) of consoles ready to go. A few Presonus StudioLive 16ch and 24ch, some tasty Allen & Heath ZedSeries, plus the mighty GL2400/24 – and a good variety of Soundcraft. The model pictured is Notepad124, which not only has 4 mic preamps, but also 4 stereo line channels. It’s seriously priced to clear at J… Read More »

If you’ve been keeping up with the pro audio news from abroad, you’ll be totally across this already – Live X Loudspeaker system from Electrovoice. The good news is we’ve now got these ripper boxes in stock. The GREAT news is not only do they sound exactly as you’d expect for a speaker with EV’s heritage, but we’re doing some nice deals to make these PA speakers… Read More »

We had such a big response to the RCF Art4 series extended warranty offer (10 years total). But the original deal was to finish March 1st 2011. Seems that there is no need to panic after all though. The offer has now been extended until the end of March 2011. Strictly. They sound great, the price is great, and this extended warranty is huge. On a side note, we feel a little like the shop who cried ‘WOLF!’ – you see it wasn’t long ago we were letting… Read More »
