Entec, the UK’s longest established sound and lighting hire company, has splashed out on more Lake LM 44 digital audio system processors.
The Middlesex-based company, which already owns two LM 44 units, has purchased a further two, and is “looking at further investment in Lake LM Series devices” in the near future.
Ed Hammond (pictured), technical engineer at Entec Sound, said: “As a company, we are involved in a lot of different events, so any kit we invest in has to be both flexible and reliable. The graphic interface in the Lake Controller has always been amazing, and from the beginning, it’s that interface that people want at front of house. That demand drives what we put into our drive racks, which is LM 44s now.
“We use the AES in/out, so we keep the audio digital as much as possible now, and Dante is something that we’re going to look at going to in the future for our full return system, so the LM Series is perfect,” he continued.
“We were always looking to invest more in the Dolby Lake technology, and when we found out that was getting phased out, we were very interested in seeing what product was going to replace it. With a company like Lab.gruppen driving the technology forward, they came out with the LM Series and we were very interested to see what it could do. “
Entec’s roster has recently included tours by Blur, Gorillaz, Slayer, Bootleg Beatles and Skunk Anansie.
