Chattanooga, TN (June 21, 2017)—Chattanooga car dealer Integrity Chevrolet recently updatged its showroom audio system. Classic Blades Pro Audio designed and installed the system, which is based around Attero Tech's unD6IO-BT four-in, two-out wall panel Dante interface with Bluetooth.
"The dealership wanted controllable systems, so we went with all-Dante and IP technology," offers Jeff Epperson, owner of Classic Blades Pro Audio. "The system is primarily used for background music and paging, and the customer wanted flexible audio inputs, including Bluetooth so they could play background music from a cell phone. The Attero Tech unD6IO-BT gave them the features they needed and integrated well with the rest of the system."
Attero Tech's unD6IO-BT interface can add up to six channels of audio to an existing Dante network. It provides stereo Bluetooth inputs and software-selectable, stereo RCA and 3.5 mm audio inputs, as well as a 3.5 mm stereo line level output with software-controlled volume.
"We're an early adopter of Attero Tech's Bluetooth Dante interface," Epperson observes. "We're using MSE's IP-addressable SoundTube loudspeakers for the Integrity Chevrolet system, and MSE recommended the unD6IO-BT, and they were right. Attero Tech interfaces not only work well with the SoundTube speakers, they integrate beautifully with the Symetrix Radius 12x8 EX DSP we're using. The Radius lets us use a VoIP card for paging, and we installed Symetrix'
virtual interface, which is easy to program and lets the customer control volume and input levels from a phone."
Integrity Chevrolet's new system covers the main showroom, a smaller show room, an outside area, and a parts and accessories showroom. "There are 11 zones in the system, with 19 speakers," recounts Epperson, "so there's a lot to it. It's all working flawlessly."
