Situated in the northern Italian town of Arco, the Centrale Caffe recently underwent a complete renovation, which in addition to the general interior and patio also included the video and sound systems, the latter now employing Martin Audio ADORN and Blackline series loudspeakers.
Local contractor Iiriti srl handled the project, and having installed Martin Audio systems several times in the past, again recommended them, along with project architect Thomas Matteotti. The system was designed by Iiriti owner, Giacomo Galassi, and supplied by Audiosales srl, Martin Audio’s territorial distributor.
Owners Ciroc Srl had commissioned the upgrade just before the pandemic lockdown. Special attention was paid to the terrace, which has been renewed with three Blackline X8 loudspeakers mounted horizontally on the external walls of the patio. Meanwhile, 10 ADORN A55 loudspeakers populate the main room and lounge.
The sound system, split into three audio zones, is controlled by the customer’s computer running Xilica X-Touch App, with two quad channel power amplifiers driving the loudspeakers. The video system is controlled from the AVPro Edge video matrix, integrated into X-Touch.
According to GGalassi, “The new audio system guarantees optimum sound and helps create the perfect atmosphere throughout the entire day, from breakfast to after-dinner. A complete renovation of this nature required a step forward in sound quality as well, and once again Martin Audio has been able to provide this.”
