It’s Audica on the Dancefloor at Café Placzek23 July 2014
Dancefloor, the Czech distributor of Audica Professional, has installed an Audica MICROseries audio system in the historic Café Placzek in Brno, Czech Republic.
Café Placzek’s home is within 1930s structure built by renowned architect Otto Eisler in the austere International Style, and Dancefloor says it choose MICROseries as the audio system would merge well with “the minimalist [modern] interior” (pictured below). The café itself is mostly steel and glass, with its side entrances and large glazed window combined into the façade by steel sections lined with polished gold travertine, which is also used abundantly in the interior.
On the ground floor, Dancefloor installed 10 Audica MICROdot micro ceiling loudspeakers in white, “to merge with the white ceiling and be almost invisible”. Two Audica MICROsub active sub-bass loudspeakers are fitted under the seats in the corners, and another two are similarly installed on the upper floor, combined with four ultra-compact surface-mount Audica MICROpoint loudspeakers (again in white).
Using the Audica MICROzone controller/amplifier and MICROplus four-channel power amplifier with a Cortex HDC-500 and Gemeni CDMP-1400 CD/MP3/USB player, Dancefloor configured the system with six independent zones – four downstairs and two upstairs.
Libor Klemenc, managing director of Dancefloor, comments: “The size and layout of the system work perfectly within the café’s dimensions, so the sound really ‘breathes’ throughout the space. We are happy that we were able to install such a discreet sound system in this minimalist interior, and that we can say the Audica MICROseries system really does sound as good it looks!”
