The system installed by Optim Audio includes three clusters arranged left, right and centre, each of which consists of one Ci60 and one Ci90. d&b loudspeakers have also been situated in delay positions, with E3s in the upper balcony, E0s covering the balcony delays and further E0s employed as front-fills. Low frequencies are covered by d&b Ci7-SUBs.
The entire system is driven by d&b E-PAC amplifiers, while system control and monitoring are accomplished via the d&b Remote network. A bespoke application for the R1 Remote control software was created jointly by Stefan Goetz from d&b's Education and Applications Support team in Germany, and Shane Bailey from National Audio Systems, d&b distributor for Australia and New Zealand.
Thomson commented: "Since installation, we have received outstanding feedback by providing this world-class, quality sound system. Not only does the d&b system improve the sound of performances coming into the centre_ but it also provides unique opportunities for community groups to access a state-of-the-art sound system."
