THE NEXT GENERATION OF ELECTRONICALLY STEERABLE


Monte Carlo Beach Club after nightfall and surrounded by a sand storm


brings the speaker system to life. It takes a two hour drive from Dubai, in the direction of Abu Dhabi, to reach Saadiyat Island. Monte Carlo Beach Club opened there at the beginning of September, and has been causing a stir ever since. It is the first beach club on the island, and has been designed to ‘celebrate fine living, culture, wellbeing and health, reflecting the values and heritage of Monte Carlo SBM sister hotels and clubs in Monaco’. With its outdoor swimming pool, surrounding cabanas, private beach bungalows, spa facilities and access to 9km of natural white sand beach, the private club is a true destination venue. And the ambitious development plans for the area will only enhance its appeal further. There are various restaurants within the complex, but Em-Tec’s focus was on the beach bar, where people unwind during the day and party in the evening. To help facilitate this, the system integration specialists prescribed 10 Funktion One F101 speakers for the sheltered areas and two Funktion One R2SH speakers aimed at an uncovered patio space, which leads to the sands of Saadiyat Beach. The R2SH is the skeletal version of the mid-high section of the Resolution 2 - it is small but potent with its delivery. Bass responsibilities are fulfilled by two F118 Mk2 bass enclosures and a pair of MB212 Minibass enclosures - the smaller iteration of Funktion One’s Infrabass technology. And the familiar combination of F60Q and F40Q amps, with the X04 speaker management system. DJs play through two Pioneer CDJ-900 CD decks plugged into a DJM-700 DJ mixer. Em-Tec also supplied and installed the lighting at Monte Carlo Beach Club. The company is an official dealer for LED lighting pioneers, Tryka, and supplies some other brands when a venue requires a dynamic lighting scheme. Here, two Robe Scan 250 XT fixtures add colour and sparkle, while six Tryka Module 12 IP68 RGB units have been set into the ground and seven Tryka MR16 Module 6 RGB Easy-Link fixtures offer colour washes to the visual ambiance. Two Icon Genesis 50W LED moving heads complete the line up. Monte Carlo Beach Club is an excellent example of Em-Tec’s work, and a fine representation of the ambition that operators in the UAE have. Though the ‘boom’, as it were, has tempered slightly, the level of luxury remains. This was evident at the other venues too, with each venue offering certain features that would set them apart from the competition. What each of them has, in that respect, is a sound system that gives them a competitive edge. Not just in the quality of products, but in their specification, quantities and in the after sales service and support offered by Em-Tec. The work that the integrators carried out during Ramadan shows several things. A journey that started with Alpha - a club that was owned by Alex and became the first Funktion One installation in the region - has arrived at a new phase in Em-Tec’s development. Awareness of what the company offers and represents is spreading, no doubt because of its involvement in high profile venues like 360° Bar, Armani Privee, Trilogy at The Madinat, The Yas Hotel in Abu Dhabi and Nasimi Beach at Atlantis. The fruit of this radiation is a wider landscape of opportunity, and a varied portfolio of projects. As Alex and Andy pointed out, they feel that the Funktion One product range more than adequately equips them for this diversity. It also shows commitment, passion and it indicates that there is a fluid, productive relationship between manufacturer and distributor. “As a leading brand within our company portfolio, Funktion One fits extremely well with all other areas of our business, complementing our company ethos and providing us with excellent products and expertise,” explains Alex. “Funktion One also pays particular
