Why do we use home made pictures of our equipment ????
you can see there are no dented grills, torn covers, smashed corners, missing or broken knobs, etc.
All of our equipment is in mint condition. No surprises here !!!!!
Other rental sites use manufacturers stock photos of equipment, which sometime do not reflect the actual
condition of the equipment you would be renting from them.
All of our systems are easy to operate, however an HSM Technician is available to operate
the system at your event.
Every event and venue is different. We
can customize a system for virtually

a word about power wattage ratings.
Some rental companies and equipment
manufacturers "exaggerate" the wattage ratings of their equipment.
order for you to shop and compare prices for identical systems, we list all 3 major power rating systems for each of our systems.
If you are getting quotes from other sites, be sure to ask if their equipment ratings
are in RMS, Program, or Peak (or Instantaneous) watts.
Our power ratings are shown in RMS / PROGRAM / INSTANT or PEAK
RMS - (Root Mean Square) is most accurate description
of a Sound System's output power handling capacity, which is also the true power rating used for all appliances
such as a 1500 watt hair dryer, a 1000 watt Microwave etc. These are RMS values.
This means the speaker and amplifier can operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week within this RMS range with
no ill effects.
- refers the amount of power that the amplifier or speaker can handle for a few seconds without damage, such as a music crescendo,
a scream, or other loud bursts which normally occur in modern music.
Operating the system at MAXIMUM PROGRAM POWER for more than a minute will produce failure.
Peak or Instant - the amount
of power that an amplifier or speaker can handle for a second or less such as a cymbal crash, bass drum hit, cannon shot,
Operating the system at MAXIMUM PEAK POWER for a few seconds
will produce failure.
list all three wattage ratings of every system we carry. If you're calling around for quotes, be sure to inquire if the system
you're quoted is in RMS, Peak, or Instant
System Number 1 below is not suitable for a wedding reception, adult dance parties,
System Numbers 3,4,5 below consist of either a powered mixer or
a DJ mixer and separate power amplifier combination depending on the system's use.
We can explain the difference in detail when you call.
Remember - an emergency back-up spare amplifier or powered mixer is included with every
High Society Music rental. A spare mic and one spare of each type of cable is also included.
Systems 1,2,3,4 & 5 are virtually goof-proof in both the set-up and operation.
