Dynacord amps fit for purpose27 October 2010
Oslo-based pro audio specialist Presentation Data has been busy installing Dynacord amplifiers in Norwegian fitness centres.
The company undertakes all types of installations – from clubs and bars to conference centres, churches, and hotels – but in recent months has identified a segment of the market for which the amps are particularly well suited: fitness studios and wellness centres. Today, in fact, Dynacord amplifiers are providing the power required for announcements and musical playback in a large number of Norwegian fitness clubs. These include SATS and Elixia, two of the finest fitness clubs in Norway and the latest instances of the developing trend. “The great advantage of Dynacord amps,” said Johan Hovde, Sound Sales Manager, “is that you can use them for both low-impedance and 100-volt installations. Furthermore, every channel is freely and individually configurable. That’s very convenient!”
Several Dynacord DSA 8805 and DSA 8405 amplifiers are installed in racks in the equipment rooms at the recently opened SATS Metro and Elixia facilities, whilst all the aerobics and cycle rooms are equipped with small mixers and CD players. This arrangement has proved to be the most practical: “It is better, on the whole, not to leave the amplifiers in full view of the members,” stated Hovde. “For one thing, it looks tidier; and for another, amplifiers are things best kept far from the clutches of would-be ‘sound designers!’”
