British sales-double for Yamaha CL series

Mansfield-based Entertainment Sound Specialists (ESS) and Loughborough-based conference and event production company Event Engineering are the latest to purchase consoles from Yamaha’s CL series.

Mansfield-based Entertainment Sound Specialists (ESS) and Loughborough-based conference and event production company Event Engineering are the latest to purchase consoles from Yamaha’s CL series. Longtime monitor engineer Phil McDaniel (pictured, with clients Florence And The Machine) has invested in a pair of Yamaha CL5s for ESS, the audio rental business he co-founded with business partner Richard John 25 years ago. McDaniel’s first experience with a CL5 was in America last year, when a local dealer set one up next to the PM1D he’d been using long-term for Florence and the Machine. “When we first heard about the CL series we were immediately interested. We still went through all the options from other manufacturers, but we kept coming back to the CL5. For all our requirements it won every time,” said McDaniel. “It can do front of house or monitors equally well, its size makes it really good for corporate events, festivals, smaller venues and, of course, Yamaha is a very reliable and universally accepted brand.” Event Engineering’s operations manager, Jim Brown, was equally impressed with the company’s CL3 and Rio3224-D i/o unit, supplied by SSE Audio Group: “We are convinced that the CL series will become the standard conference desk, due to its high input count and compact form factor,” he said. “The CL3 surface was our choice as the perfect balance of size vs input faders. Additionally, the system’s Dante networking gives us great scope for distributing audio inputs and outputs. The multitrack recording facility is also a great bonus.” www.yamahaproaudio.com
