Here is Stereo 105's new computerized MP3 system. A Compaq laptop computer
is the heart of the station, with 2 Technic CD players for backup, one
cassette player/recorder, a NADY SCM950 Condenser Microphone, Audio
Technica Phantom Power Supply and mixed with a Yamaha MJ-100 12 input
stereo mixer which runs into a Behringer MDX-1400 Compresser, Limiter.
The gigantic GATES Diplomat Console is no longer used, but kept for
back-up and production.
Heres a picture of our obsolete 30,000+ 45rpm record collection and a
few of our CD's (which also are almost obsolete)! To the left of the
old dependable QRK turntables and Shure M-232 Arms, is the TEAC reel-to-reel, which is
also sitting collecting dust. Still works...but with a computer and
MP3, who needs all this extra stuff! By the way...the headphones
on the lower left are Fostex phones which are used for monitoring
the FM signal off the FM monitor.
This is our production studio where we transfer CD's, cassettes, voice, reel-to-reel and
45 and 33 rpm records. We also do production here, news, weather and jingles to our
master computer with Creative Wave Studio and Acoustica. Equipment used here is an MCA
Condenser Microphone powered with an Audio Technica Phantom supply, an MCS 6202
Turntable, Gemini PMX-200 Audio Mixer, JVC XL-V250 CD player, a Harmon Kardon hk2500
cassette deck, a Nakamichi BX-1 2 head cassette deck, an AMPEX AG-600 reel-to-reel
recorder, Sony MDR-CD60 Phones and a Sony Supressa CDRW unit.
