December 2005 - Masque Sound has ordered a substantial quantity of top-of-the-range power amplifiers from German manufacturer
CAMCO, in readiness for a new Vegas opening of 'Hairspray' at the start of 2006.
Ashly Audio, CAMCO's distributor in the USA, is supplying a total of 39x Vortex 6 high power amps which will be used with an
L'Acoustics DV-DOSC system in a design by Steve Kennedy. 'Hairspray', a $12 million production, will open at the Luxor Hotel in
Las Vegas in February 2006, starring Tony Award winner Harvey Feirstein.
Speaking on behalf of Masque Sound, Walter Yurgel commended the sound quality of the CAMCO amplifiers. ''We own nearly two
hundred of the Vortex amps now, and use them a lot. We find them to be very warm, and they match up really well with the DV-DOSC
loudspeakers. In fact, CAMCO has become one of the staple amplifiers of our concert touring division, used by artists such as
Jesse McCartney and Hilary Duff.''
Vortex is a high power amplifier featuring exceptionally high efficiency, enormous power (6.000 watts mono into 4 ohms) and the
use of micro-controllers to digitally control and monitor all functions and thus ensure first-class audio quality. A mere 2 units
in height, it boasts a variety of innovative features: power transistor control with emergency shutdown in case of extreme
malfunctions, reliable overvoltage protection up to 400V, thermal protective circuitry for the transistors, hum free operation in
case of extreme undervoltage (instead of sound-deteriorating limiters). All in a 12Kg package.
