Is There An AV Generational Divide?

Last month we were excited to be part of a feature in Commercial Integrator magazine that explored the similarities, differences and perceptions that different generations have about sound quality and microphone design.

What was brought to light in the article was, well, illuminating!  And, definitely worth reading about.  Catch the article here and please, send us your thoughts and comments.  We always welcome your feedback! 

NEW to our newsletter this month, is a section geared toward our superstar integrators that focuses on how our equipment is connected.  We hope you find the schematics we share here and in the future helpful as you specify and design your next projects.

We also have included our product feature of the month, and a new case study.  We welcome the chance to feature one of your projects, so if you have a great story to share, drop us a line at

For now, read on and enjoy! 


CA700-RF and CA900-RF


The CA900-RF is a modular microphone boom stand that is elegant and truly versatile. Designed to be used in conjunction with the SM155 shock mounted floor stand (7” in diameter), the CA900 takes up very little floor space and can easily be positioned to the optimal capture angle.

The CA900-RF’s boom is readily wired with a tiny Q connector at the microphone end and a Phantom Power Adaptor and RF immunity circuitry in an XLR housing at the bottom of the shaft.  This leaves all wiring and connectors close to the floor while the Q connector, mounted on a knuckle joint at the top of the shaft, makes it easy to aim the axis to achieve the perfect angle for any application.

You've asked us to give you some more information on how our equipment can be integrated together.  This month we have included a schematic for the CDT100 and our ARM102-RF.

In the example above, we have motorized retractable microphones seated in SWP2 RGB touch switches, hooked up through some CDT100 Mark II's.

The ARMF102N-RF’s motor control cables (in Grey) must be connected to an ARM-C motor controller, designed to control up to four microphones, which can be daisy-chained (reference orange lines) for as many microphones as needed. It uses only one Hi-Logic signal, from the designated ARM-C port on the CDT100, to deploy all microphones simultaneously. This example shows two ARM-Cs handling eight  ARMF102N-RFs.

The open-ended audio cables are shown in green, and the RJ45 connectors in blue (from the touch switches).

TS-C1 boxes are connected directly to the CDT100s with one CDT for every four microphones / touch switches.

Since only two CDT100s are being used in this set-up, the same PSU 1205 can also supply the two
ARM-Cs, as it can power up to six CDT100s on its own.

Well, that's a wrap!  Wishing you a great end to your summer
and we'll see you in September!
