Yamaha has Leisuretec TecZone surrounded6 May 2014
Professional audio, lighting and video distributor – Leighton Buzzard-based Leisuretec – has recently unveiled the “TecZone”, a new in-house space to facilitate training, seminars, product demonstrations and meetings with both clients and suppliers.The room has been kitted out with with Yamaha’s CIS series, chosen for its 7.1 surround system.
The TecZone is a flexible, multi-purpose facility, designed so that seating and desks can be easily changed to facilitate different layouts, or removed completely for maximum floor area.
Leisuretec managing director Cliff Dounting says: “We had a very good idea of what we wanted. Our designer came back with a few options which, after a couple of revisions, became the final specification of the room design, layout and so on.”
Leisuretec worked closely with Peterborough-based ARC AV & IT Solutions to design, supply and install a high quality A/V system with exceptional functionality, which would allow the space to easily be used in many different formats.
Yamaha’s CIS series was chosen by Leisuretec for its sound reinforcement requirements, with the company specifying a surround system comprising seven VXS8 wall mounted loudspeakers and two VXS10S floor mounted subs, powered by XMV4280 and XMV8280 amplifiers.
A MTX3 matrix processor controls the system, while a Yamaha RX-A1030 Receiver Amplifier and BD-S473 BluRay player also form integral parts of the A/V solution.
“The AV equipment was chosen to best suit the various applications that TecZone will be used for. We have been very pleased to partner with Yamaha and use the CIS series, which is the ideal audio complement,” says Dounting. “It has delivered a result that we’re extremely pleased with.”
