The leading rental house has purchased another 17 units of the new LM 44 and a dozen LM 26 digital audio processors – taking the overall total of Lake LM Series units to 70.
The LM 44 provides four analogue inputs and four analogue outputs, in contrast to the LM 26’s 2-in/6-out. In addition, the LM 44 accommodates 8-in/8-out AES3 and 4-in/8-out Dante digital audio transport. The LM 44 incorporates the latest implementation of Lake’s ‘Mesa EQ’ configuration, utilising 4 Mesa modules, each with an independent input mixer and output signal processing chain.
This configuration is said to make the LM 44 ideally suited to a wide range of FoH applications, including as a mix-matrix and full system EQ, switching between consoles on large events, inserts EQ for monitor systems, FOH-to-stage digital transmission, line driver for self-powered systems, and a Dante break-in/break-out box.
Bryan Grant, managing director at Britannia Row, commented: “I think the purchase speaks for itself in many ways. We’ve moved pretty much exclusively to Lake units to control our systems and currently have them on the MTV EMA awards in Belfast, where we have a multi zoned K1/Outline system, plus touring systems with Kasabian, The Cure, Will Young, Noel Gallagher, Beady Eye, Duran Duran, Jamiroquai, Young Voices, Tinie Tempah, Cliff Richard and many more.”
Jerry Wing (pictured), technical head at Britannia Row, added: “The Lakes are completely dependable and worry-free. The sound quality is second to none, and when used with Dante give a sparklingly clean low latency link, further augmented with the extra features offered by the LM44 now standard in all our drive racks.
“Britannia Row has committed itself to the LM Series, as we have found the right product that fulfils our needs and exceeds all that we ask of it. We will continue with this association with Lab.gruppen and Lake for a long time to come I hope.”
