    Paradiso, arguably Netherland’s most famous live venue, recently upgraded their sound reinforcement system with an Adamson Energia PA. Located in a converted former church building, the city opened its doors in 1968 as a publicly subsidized entertainment center. As time passed the venue has evolved into what it is today – a pop podium, club and cultural center in one. The main hall has retained much of its church look with an abundance of wood, pillars, and a high 60-foot… View this post
