To ensure the optimum aural ambience, Copenhagen-based Prime Production has installed Meyer Sound IntelligentDC reinforcement systems for recorded music playback and — in many cases — live music presentations at Café Vivaldi. The choice of Meyer Sound systems reflects an overall commitment to excellence on the part of Café Vivaldi founder and CEO, Chibo Deliktas. “For success in the restaurant business you need to make sure everything connects together,” he explained. “It’s not enough simply to serve good food. You need to create a space where people want to stay, not just to get the meal over and get out, but to talk and to listen, and to enjoy the feel of the place. And the sounds they hear are very much a part of that total experience.” The complete system comprises 40 MM-4XP and 14 UP-4XP compact self-powered loudspeakers along with seven MM-10XP compact self-powered subwoofers. All 68 loudspeakers incorporate Meyer Sound’s exclusive IntelligentDC technology, combining the performance advantages of self-powered systems with the installation efficiency of Class 2 wiring. A single five-conductor cable routes DC power and balanced audio signal to the loudspeakers from seven rack-mount MPS-488HP power supply and signal distribution units. System optimisation is handled by a Galileo 616 loudspeaker processor.
Transforming the offices of a former bank with open spaces and three floors to a weel sounding restaurant presented a challenge, which we overcame to the complete satisfaction of the owner. Also the old vault was made into a VIP area, were the challenges were to get cables into the room. The perfect solution here was the IntelligentDC products from Meyer Sound, that made the cable runs a lot easier.
For Prime Production director Peter Petersen, the Meyer Sound IntelligentDC concept represents the ideal balance of guaranteed performance and installation ease. “With the XP series of loudspeakers we don’t have to think about long cable runs compromising sound quality, and yet we only have to run one cable per loudspeaker. Café Vivaldi management has been super happy with the results, and Meyer Sound will be the choice going forward.”
