Buddha-Bar Paris recently installed new Meyer Sound systems, designed and installed by John Pouzet of Paris-based Sonosystem, with design assistance from Cyril Ubersfeld of Meyer Sound’s French distributor, Best Audio. “I specified a Meyer system to realize a particular sound quality with detailed resolution that goes beyond the ordinary,” Pouzet explained. “We wanted a sonic character that evoked warmth, and even mystery, something only a Meyer system could do in this space.” The main restaurant, with tables spread beneath the gaze of a serene Buddha, is an acoustically challenging space with high ceilings. Here, music permeates the room via eight UPJ-1P VariO loudspeakers, with dual USW-1P subwoofers underneath the Buddha statue. To assure uniform low frequencies at all tables, seven MM-10 miniature subwoofers are concealed in banquettes. The overall audio response of the space is optimized by a Galileo loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 616 processor. The Red Room employs eight discreet UP-4XP loudspeakers augmented by two MM-10 subwoofers, again placed under banquettes. For the upper level bar and lounge alcoves, Pouzet specified a dozen strategically placed UPM-1P loudspeakers, with bass boosted by four M1D-Sub and two UMS-1P subwoofers in the larger spaces and around the bar. Resident DJ, Ravin (pictured) controls his own Meyer Sound monitor rig, comprising dual UPM-1P loudspeakers and a close-proximity MM-10 subwoofer. In addition to the Paris retrofit, Meyer Sound systems have been installed at the two newest Buddha-Bar locations in Mexico City and Manila, as well as at two other George V Eatertainment locations: Little Buddha in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt and Barrio Latino in Paris. “At Buddha-Bar, our sonic signature is a subtle combination of world and electro-ethnic music,” said Franck Fortet, vice president for development at George V Eatertainment, the parent firm of Buddha-Bar. “It’s an infinity of sounds that requires the perfect sound system, and the effect as distilled through the new Meyer system has made a remarkable difference at Buddha-Bar Paris.” www.meyersound.comwww.buddhabar.com
