Baltimore, MD (October 2, 2006)–Maryland Sound International (MSI) recently purchased 36 JBL VerTec VT4888DP-AN midsize powered line array loudspeakers, adding to its current inventory of the boxes.

MSI has provided live sound for high-profile events including the dedication of the National World War II Memorial in Washington D.C., the Presidential Inaugurations at the U.S. Capitol in 2001 and 2005 and New York City’s Times Square New Year’s Eve
With the purchase, MSI is now one of the world’s largest owners of VerTec equipment. “Over the years, we have found that there is nothing that the VerTec system hasn’t done that we’ve needed it to do,” said MSI founder and owner Bob Goldstein. “In deciding to offer new options for our broad client base, we’ve now added the new powered VerTec DP Series.”
Since purchasing the VT4888DP-AN, Maryland Sound crews have deployed the new system for a number of concerts and civic and corporate events. “We like the VT4888DP-AN system for many reasons, particularly for its flexibility,” Goldstein said. “We’ve used them in several different applications, and they have performed extremely well.” Senior engineer Art Isaacs opined that the new VerTec DP Series system is the perfect solution for the increasing number of corporate events being handled by the company. “Clients in that market don’t want to see the sound; they just want to hear it,” explained Isaacs. “The integrated, self-powered solution is ideal in those situations. And regarding how the system sounds, our event clients are always happy.”
MSI continually upgrades its rental systems, and in addition to the new VerTec DP system, the company has added 18 of JBL’s new VRX915M stage monitors to its inventory.
