London, UK (January 23, 2018)—Think your favorite club is legendary? London’s The Arts Club was founded in 1863 by Charles Dickens, Anthony Trollope and Lord Leighton. Not everything about it is old, however—take its new audio system, built around Allen & Heath mixers and an L-Acoustics PA.
Supplied by SSE Audio Group, the new mixing set-up offers a dLive S5000 surface with Dante and AES3 I/O audio networking cards installed, and a DM48 MixRack. An Allen & Heath ME-1 personal mixer tackles drum monitoring duties.
“The mainstays of The Arts Club tech team use dLive systems out on the road,” said Richard Watts, SSE Audio Group sales manager, “including Jonathan Lewis (Travis FOH) and Dave McDonald (Frank Ocean FOH), so it was an obvious choice for the venue.”
Head technician Charles Bidwell remarked, “When touring engineers—of which we get many at The Arts Club—use it for the first time, it becomes familiar instantaneously and I’ve had nothing but good feedback from them. In fact, I like the dLive system so much I purchased my own dLive C1500 surface and CDM32 MixRack for FOH duties on Santan Dave’s UK tour.”
