Siberia, Russia (January 9, 2004)–Khabarovsk City in Siberia has opened the Palladium Palace, an entertainment center that does double-duty as an ice-rink stadium and concert hall. In ice-rink mode, the facility is used for competitions at all levels, training and a range of social ice skating activities. Then, with a few modifications, the venue can be transformed into a 7,000-capacity concert hall. PAL Systems of Russia supplied the Palladium Palace with a Soundcraft K2 console to control the new PA system for either application as well as outdoor concerts.
For concert events, held both in and outside the Palace, PAL Systems further provided the facility with a portable control system largely consisting of a Soundcraft MH4 front-of-house console, MH3 monitor desk and several mobile racks of amplifiers.
