New Product Theatre 

All sorts of great audio gear premiered in the last few months! Here are some highlights:

Zaxcom has released this convenient Deva hard drive caddy to USB adapter to make transferring files easier and faster than ever before.
The newest addition to the Rosendahl line of venerable time code generators is the MIF4 with an integrated USB-MIDI interface, a video sync reference input, balanced LTC in/out and a large LED timecode display.
Available now, the PSC PowerStar Mini is the tiny brother of the regular PowerStar ENG power distribution system!

There is a new garage next door to Gotham (4 doors east of our entrance) that we now validate parking for up to one hour. The garage has an entrance on 37th St or 38th St allowing access from the east or west side. In addition to curbside service, we now invite you to stay — and the first hour of indoor parking is on us.

We can service DV824'sFR2LE'sCR500's, and MR's at our 38th Street location and, through our relationship with Triple S in New Jersey, the rest of the Fostex line of products, without having to send them back to the manufacturer.
