QSC Strategically Acquires USL

That offers were lining up at the door for USL was not a well-kept secret. In the 1980’s, Jack Cashin, owner and CEO of USL, was the first and only person to beat infringement of Ray Dolby’s A-Type noise reduction. He cleverly did this by designing a mathematically equivalent circuit with identical response using a method overlooked by Dolby’s patent. That, plus USL’s own flavor of matrix decoding, elevated USL’s popularity for cinema sound processors. Over the years, USL expanded its product line into measurement tools and media blocks. But the clock was ticking.  Mr. Cashin was ready to sell, and QSC scored. The deal closed September 30, 2016.
