Following a recent demo in Paris, Meyer Sound has confirmed three new orders for the LEOPARD linear sound reinforcement loudspeakers, including two French rental system purchases and an installation going to a nightclub in Marseille.
The LEOPARD line array loudspeaker and its accompanying 900-LFC low-frequency control element are the newest, smallest, most versatile members of Meyer Sound’s flagship LEO Family.
“This is the first time we have purchased a line array system immediately, before any of our rental clients have had a chance to ask for it, because we are certain that it will be requested as soon as they hear it,” notes Marc de Fouquières, general manager of DUSHOW, who purchased 24 LEOPARD loudspeakers and 10 900-LFC elements.
Besides the system’s small cabinet size, full range response and ease of setup, Fouquières says it’s the listening experience that proves most convincing: “The uncompromised sound quality of LEOPARD simply overshadows every other small line array system, and some larger ones as well.”
Stage OI, a rental company on the French Reunion Island, has ordered 12 LEOPARD loudspeakers and six 900-LFC elements to augment a broad, existing inventory of Meyer Sound loudspeakers. “With its high power and compact size, LEOPARD is perfect for our needs,” says Ian Henderson, manager of Stage OI.
In the port city of Marseille, a third system is bound for Rooftop des Terasses du Port, a nightclub where six LEOPARD loudspeakers and two 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements will comprise the first permanently installed LEOPARD system.
Since Meyer Sound’s announcement of LEOPARD and 900-LFC in April, the list of rental companies that have purchased a system has included Bright Norway AS, U.K.’s Sonalyst, Hurricane Sound & Light of Slovakia, Eenorm Facilitair of the Netherlands, and more.
LEOPARD and 900-LFC will be featured in live demos during InfoComm 2015 in Orlando, Fla.
