AudioAholics.com – “Because you NEED this”

I had to make a change to a domain name and brand.

WhateverTheFuckYouWant.ca was getting blocked by corporate firewalls so I will be renaming rebranding the web store to AudioAholics.com

http://audioaholics.com/

The objective is to have an alternative place to sell audio equipment / parts to eBay and Kijiji They are evil. It is a free service for all to enjoy and list.

Some buddies

Doing some calibration the other day and I brought old Faithful: B and K Tone Generator and HP 400FL meter. I modified the backs to have XLR connectors and the meter has an isolation transformer in it. Can’t work without them!

  • Monitoring wireless

    It’s easy to see if a wire is hooked up and transmitting but a task I’ve needed a tool for is watching Frequencies at performances. this little tool can confirm transmission and locate where, who and what freq the hits are at on wireless mics. on the back I’ve got all my mic and BTR frequencies. It’s interesting to watch everything in real time for where ever you are.

    I must hand it to the frequency coordinators, it’s very well planned and well executed! 20130616-143851.jpg
