London, UK (January 14, 2016)—Following a fire at NEP UK’s Bracknell building that destroyed five trucks in November 2015, the company has started to rebuild, and has recently ordered Genelec, Wohler and Studio Technologies equipment from HHB Communications.
Now based at temporary offices nearby its former location, NEP UK has equipped Pacific with a Genelec 5.1 system comprising of three 8351A SAM studio monitors, two 8330A SAM studio monitors and a 7060B studio subwoofer.
Neville Hooper, deputy head of sound, NEP UK, said, “We carried out some listening tests at HHB and settled on the 8351A SAM studio monitors. Their manageable DSP means that we can deal with what can sometimes be a challenging acoustic environment using the GLM 2.0 software.”
Hooper added, “The listening test helped us to sit down and work out what would work best for us moving forwards. It’s nice to have a relationship where you can work together to bring new products online.”
Additionally, HHB is supplying 68 Wohler AMP1-16-M audio monitors to NEP. Each truck will have 15 audio monitors and the final eight audio monitors will be used in flyaway kits.
Hooper said, “We used the AMP1-16-M audio monitor in our previous trucks Atlantic and Gemini and it’s a neat solution because of its size. It’s very compact but gives you all 16 channels of monitoring in a screen as well as displaying the video input.”
A large amount of other equipment is also going into these trucks, including the Studio Technologies Model 41 Interface and Model 47A Interface.
