The systems purchased by LIPA revolve around C7-TOPs and -SUBs, and will be used for a wide variety of applications and productions, including musical dramas and the Chris Layton-taught Live Sound course. LIPA is also able to call on EX15-SUBs and E12 top cabinets.
LIPA's chief technician, John Attewell, commented: "Chris and I discussed this purchase in depth and after looking at all the different systems we'd experienced we decided to take the d&b option, not only based on the sound quality but having heard for ourselves the uniformity of performance and delivery across the d&b product range."
There was also praise for TMC's assistance throughout the project. "TMC has been very helpful and provided the depth of support that an institution such as ours requires," said Attewell. "Nick Bolton from the company has already provided us with a training day delivered by themselves and d&b, and we are arranging further sessions that will widen that experience and knowledge to our students."
