Its name is derived from the Rothschild family emblem of a shield surmounted by five arrows, pointing upward and tied with a ribbon. Each of the arrows represents one of the five sons of Mayer Amschel Rothschild, founder of the Rothschild dynasty, who were sent by their father to establish banking houses in the five financial capitals of Europe – Frankfurt, Vienna, Paris, Naples and London.
The Z4MK3 (above) is the latest version of the ever popular Z Series of Cloud Zoner Mixers, and was effectively deployed as part of the project. The latest upgrade includes RJ45 connectors for much easer wiring of the NEW LM-2 or LM-2A Active Facility Input Plates along with changes to the Mic Input Sockets from XLR to Phoenix style connectors.
The MASK8 (above) is a robust 8” high SPL two-way loudspeaker for low impedance installations. This unique and innovative design loudspeaker used in conjunction with a subwoofer will deliver high intelligibility and vocal perfection! The curved fine metal grille together with its timeless shape gives MASK8 a different, yet inconspicuous look.
