Wisconsin USA – Wisconsin based Sound Decision Productions is a regional tour and event sound provider based in Muskego just outside of Milwaukee. With clients and productions ranging from corporate events, festivals and hotel ballrooms, to full scale arena touring, SDP is committed to providing their customers with what owner Mark Hartzell describes as “the right gear with the right attitude.” In this case choosing the right gear resulted in the recent addition of 12 Linea Research 44M20D Dante enabled DSP amplifiers to SDP’s inventory.
“We’d recently taken delivery of a new large format line array system, a somewhat custom McCauley MLA6, and we needed to power it. When I heard about Linea Research and the kind of real sustained power delivery they can achieve I was definitely listening, factor in the Dante option and better pricing and I was sold,” explains Hartzell. “We’ve taken the 4 channel 20k on everything approach and built 4 identical racks of 3 44M20 amps, each can drive up to 9 tops, 24 double 18” subs or 6 bi-amped monitor mixes. Just hit the program for whatever the application and you can power anything in our inventory!”
Linea Research’s 44M20 is the flagship amplifier in the touring focused M Series offering 4 channels at 5000W each, onboard 96kHz DSP, full front panel, networked control and optional Dante. “These really are exceptional sounding amplifiers,” remarks Rik Kirby, Vice President of Linea Research USA. “Couple this with our ability to really deliver on the power specs, not just for 25ms at a time, and the 44M20 is a very compelling package and a great fit for Mark and SDP with their need for versatility and power.”
