BULGARIAN BEACH BAR UPGRADES WITH MARTIN AUDIO AQ
Imperia AV fits out La Playa in Varna
A Martin Audio sound reinforcement system has been fitted in La Playa Bar in the seaside resort of Varna, on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast.
Part of a completely renewed interior, the dynamic new Martin Audio architectural AQ system has been provided by the manufacturer's Bulgarian distributors, Imperia AV.
The renovated venue features eight AQ8 satellite speakers, distributed into three zones - the indoor area, front outdoor area and a delay line which covers the most remote spots on the beach.
Four AQ212 sub-bass speakers have been placed along the boundary between the outdoor and indoor areas, with all loudspeakers powered by Martin Audio MA2.0 and MA3.0 amplifiers (two units of each) managed by a dedicated DX1.5 digital controller. A significant role for achieving studio quality sound is played by the silver-plated Van Damme signal and power cables, according to Imperia AV's Galin Aleksiev, who has also specified industry standard DJ equipment.
Milen Minkov from the bar management states: 'We were looking for an audio system that offered a soft and uniformly distributed lounge sound on the one hand, but which at the same time would bring power and dynamics to both DJ and live performance. Following a brief on-site demonstration, we were entirely convinced that Martin Audio was the only possible choice that could offer this complex combination at a reasonable price. The configuration and placement of the system was unexpectedly quick and easy.'
To open the new programme, the hosts invited Tri-O-Five, and as early as the sound check, one of their artists, Michael Fleming declared, 'I haven't heard myself sound that good for a long time', while the experienced DJ Ilko also remarked on the impact the new Martin Audio system was having on on his Traktor controller.
La Playa gave its club-oriented customers the first big surprise as early as on the second evening when Silicone Soul took over the turntables. With 1000 people revelling to the dynamic set, spiced with elegant mixer work spanning the entire frequency range, the club could immediately see (and feel) the benefit of its investment.
