Las Vegas (February 22, 2007)–A pair of XTA DP6i audio installation controllers were installed into Las Vegas’ Tao Nightclub by the FBP Group this past January, as part of an upgrade to the 42,000-square-foot venue’s audio system.
Pictured are (l-r): Bob Athey and Frank Heinrich, owners of the FBP Group, with XTA’s DP6is installed at Tao Nightclub on the Las Vegas strip.”The goal was to reuse the existing main components of the system, including the speakers and the amplifiers, yet do an upgrade that would considerably enhance the system’s performance and do so as cost-effectively as possible,” explained Bob Athey, co-owner, with partner Frank Heinrich, of the FBP Group. “The original system was installed only a year and a half ago, but in the world of high-end clubs, competition can make things change very quickly. We needed to choose and install only critical pieces of equipment to do the job.”
According to Athey, the two DP6i units boosted the sound system’s performance and are expected to cut down on repair calls. The FBP Group now plans to employ the DP6i on systems at the Body English nightclub in the Hard Rock Hotel and at the Venetian Hotel’s new Beach Club venue. “The XTA units are great systems for this type of application, as well as for new system design and installation,” he says. “They help guarantee great sound.”
