Toronto, Canada (October 31, 2014)—Deluxe Toronto Ltd. has standardized on JBL, Crown and BSS equipment, recently completing relocation to a new facility incorporating the Harman products.
Deluxe Toronto’s main theaters are equipped with three LCR behind-the-screen JBL M2 master reference monitors powered by Crown Macro-Tech 9000i amplifiers and tuned using BSS Soundweb London processing. Deluxe’s largest mixing stage, Mix 1, is also Canada’s first Dolby Atmos-equipped mixing stage and is also equipped for IMAX. Deluxe chose JBL 3 Series studio monitors for its pre-mix room. The monitoring systems were supplied by Harman’s distributor, SC Media Canada.
According to Nick Iannelli, VP of post production operations, Deluxe Toronto, the ability to have identical setups in each mixing room not only ensures consistency for the audio engineers, it also provides flexibility for its clients. “Having the same technology in multiple rooms means we can transfer our work throughout the facility to accommodate different schedules, with no change in what we are hearing,” he said.
“The JBL, Crown and BSS technologies are all built to work together,” said Phil Seel, senior engineer, Deluxe Toronto. “So we have this tremendous, integrated package that not only performs incredibly well, it’s also easy to customize for our operation.”
“We did a lot of testing with a lot of different systems, and the M2’s sounded terrific right out of the box,” said Mike Baskerville, manager, sound operations, Deluxe Toronto.
