By PSW Staff • July 25, 2019 With a menu that features dishes like barbecue ribs, burgers, soups, salads and steak-frites, along with a selection of Japanese items, La Estacion American Brasserie is a 240-seat, 10,000-square-foot restaurant and bar with four private event spaces and a large open kitchen. La Estacion is rapidly becoming the new go-to restaurant for Brightline’s guests (soon-to-be Virgin Trains USA), neighboring residents, and the professionals who work right upstairs at MiamiCentral and the surrounding area. To ensure the finest background music, the restaurant’s management elected to deploy a new sound system drawn from the Quantum Series catalog of Valencia, Spain-based DAS Audio. Sound Investment Audio, a privately held consulting and AV systems design firm with offices in Chicago, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas, was contracted to handle the installation of the new sound system at La Estacion. David Asimos, a project manager with the company, oversaw La Estacion’s sales, design, and build phases. He discusses the project and his decision to deploy DAS Audio’s Quantum Series loudspeakers. “La Estacion is one of Miami’s new hotspots for dining,” Asimos reports. “To ensure the best possible background music, we elected to install thirty DAS Quantum Q-23-T full range loudspeakers and another eight Q-10 subwoofers. These loudspeakers are specifically designed for fixed-venue installations. They provide outstanding speech intelligibility and configurable response, making the Quantum Series ideal for spaces with complex acoustic conditions and immersive experiences.” Asimos reports that La Estacion has multiple areas designed to accommodate a variety of activities. As such, the new sound system was specifically designed to accommodate individual control within these areas. When queried about those Quantum Series attributes that made the loudspeakers well-suited for this project, Asimos offered the follow thoughts, “We needed a solution where the size—or low profile design of the loudspeakers—was important, without compromising sound quality and intelligibility. For this application, DAS Audio’s Quantum Series was the perfect choice.” For many installation projects, questions inevitably arise, so the ability to receive accurate information in timely fashion is key to keeping a project on track. In this regard, Asimos rates DAS Audio very favorably. “DAS Audio’s customer and technical support services are fantastic,” he said. “I was very impressed with the company’s responsiveness and the fact that the information they provided resulted in the best solutions for this job.” The sound system installation at La Estacion was initiated in May 2019 and the system was placed into service immediately. With the new system fully operational, Asimos reports his client is very pleased, “With the installation up and running, I am pleased to report our client is extremely happy with its performance. The sound is clear, very musical, and the flexibility to control the various zones is working extremely well for the wide range of activities that take place at La Estacion. The bottom line is that this has been a win-win for everyone involved.” DAS Audio Sound Investment Audio Tagged with: DAS Audio Quantum · all topics Subscribe to Live Sound International Subscribe to Live Sound International magazine.
