It had to sound great, be 100% reliable in a multitude of situations and be easy for the bar staff to control. DAS Audio provided the speakers for the sound quality, reliability and while being among the best speakers in the world, the price is acceptable. A simple Control-4 system was chosen for the control of the sound and TV's. While not as flexible or powerful as the Crestron we usually use, the price was right and it hasn't really missed a beat, recalling preset operating parameters every time.
We were involved from the planning stage which always guarantees a better result. We get to plan speaker positions and get cables to the right places before the gib goes on the wall rather than coming in as an afterthought having to make do with awkward situations.
The results speak for themselves - if you are in the Lunn Ave area in Auckland drop in for a pint or a meal.
