Klartext-Gruppe has installed a new sound system in the classrooms and auditorium at Aalen University in Germany.
The system consists of two Tannoy VX 5.2 loudspeakers in each room as well as a compact, two-channel Lab.gruppen LUCIA (Localized Utility Compact Intelligent Amplification) amplifier.
Manager of Klartext, Jörg Mitschele says: “LUCIA was chosen for a number of reasons. It’s compact, but doesn’t compromise in sound quality, and the built-in DSP feature is a wonderful tool to have during set up.”
“Since we didn’t need a lot of power, the LUCIA 120/2M was ideal as it offers a robust two 60 watts out of a small unit, its DSP possibilities providing equalisation as well. The small unit is mounted hidden behind a blind cover so the user cannot reach its controls (and does not need to).”
The microphones and audio sources are hooked up to the system with modular units called m-connect-s, which allow the connection of phantom powered microphone inputs, RCA and jack connectors for laptops, MP3 players or smartphones.
Mitschele adds: “The combination of LUCIA amplifiers and Tannoy loudspeakers is great, but in my opinion, the kind of foolproof operation demanded by the customer would not have been possible without m-connect-s audio input and mixing systems. I think Lucia and m-connect-s do not only get on well together but make a perfect team for a vast field of sound reinforcement applications. Just plug it in and turn it up. It really is that simple!”
