Funky Junk Gets “Visual Radio” DTV Music Channel On Air With Linear Acoustic Technology

Radio Iglesias, located on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia off the coast of Italy, launched its new “Visual Radio” DTV music channel with audio processing equipment from Linear Acoustic.

Founded in 1975 as one of the first private FM licenses in the Italian market, Radio Iglesias has expanded over the years to include four FM stations, streaming and satellite delivery, and now a music television channel. Director and co-founder of Radio Iglesias, Gianfranco Secci, was already extensively familiar with Linear Acoustic Omnia products for his FM signals as well as for its web stations, which are available to stream from its website or via Android or iOS app. 

"We love Omnia processors and the Omnia sound," said Gianfranco. "In fact, many years ago, we bought one of the very first Cutting Edge Unity 2000 units for our FM signal, then upgraded over time to Omnia 6, Omnia.9, and Omnia.11 processors."

When asked about audio processing for their new DTV service, Gianfranco said that they were initially using the digital output of their Omnia 6, but wanted to improve the sound even further with a processor designed specifically for DTV service to be more competitive with other television music channels.
