BARCELONA NIGHTSPOT Club Astoria has been equipped with a D.A.S. sound system centred around the Aero Series 2. The newly renovated venue in the upscale Eixample neighbourhood, which previously housed the landmark Opium Cinema, includes two completely differentiated remodelled areas – an exclusive ampitheatre and a more accessible space located in the old cinema’s bar. Design and installation of the
project was carried out by Vila- Sana-based professional sound and lighting company Fokum, who selected the self-powered line array systems from D.A.S.’s Aero Series 2. At the project’s helm was
director Josep María Aldomá who opted to set up two formations of linear Aero 8A self-
powered compact line array systems, each made up of four units either side of the main stage. The units were configured with the necessary curving angles between them to ensure optimal coverage for the listening zone situated in front of the stage. Fokum technical professionals
opted for D.A.S. LX-215A self- powered subwoofer systems with double 15” speakers to provide low-frequency reinforcement. The set of subwoofers used are located in front of and beneath the stage, guaranteeing the widest possible subwoofer coverage for the listening/dance area. The installation is rounded
out by a D.A.S. DSP-2060A digital processor system, which functions as the control centre for the entire system. n www.dasaudio.com

A SERIES of Genelec loudspeakers have been installed across the hospitality zones at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Dutch distributor Iemke Roos Audio was called in to evaluate the space at the café and product manager Frank de Roy specified a series of 4030A Genelec loudspeakers. Five in total were arranged in the dining and bar area to provide balanced coverage without imposing on the setting. In addition, the newly renovated
royal reception room also opted for Genelec. A pair of 6010A speakers were selected to extend sound to the room, which is used to welcome Dutch royalty when visiting the venue. “The 6010As were the perfect solution for the reception,” said de Roy. “They were small enough to reduce any physical impact on the décor, and they were more than capable of filling the area with sound.” www.genelec.comwww.iemkeroos.nl
