THESSALONIKI, Greece – Greek rental company Q-Sound was the force behind the success in two recent cultural events, employing HARMAN’s Soundcraft Vi1 audio consoles supplied by Bon Studio S.A. to ramp up the sound performance. The events included a festival organized by a well-known political party, plus a symphonic orchestra performance at Thessaloniki Concert Hall.
The symphony was a tribute dedicated to legendary Greek poet Kavafis, and all 64 input channels on the Soundcraft Vi1 were utilized during the show. Needless to say, both the audience and the supporting team from Q-Sound were impressed with the sound quality of the console, which has the smallest footprint in the Soundcraft Vi Series. In addition, the Vi1 has the largest touchscreen in its class and features FaderGlow™ color-coded illuminated faders.
“We could not have imagined better results from a Soundcraft console of this size. Our mission was to be able to support venues of this magnitude, while also creating the exact level of sound that the orchestra needs. We are glad to say the Vi1 helped us achieve this goal and exceeded our expectations,” according to Mr. George and Chris Paraskevopoulos, owners of Q-Sound.
“The recent shows were such a success that we decided to acquire a second Soundcraft Vi1! The portability, combined with the amazing yet easily controlled sound system, is a huge advantage for the variety of events that we manage. From political gatherings to cultural events, nothing seems to be a problem for the Vi1,” claimed George Paraskevopoulos.
In 2013, Bon Studio S.A. has already sold 28 Si Expression consoles, seven Si Performer consoles and nine Vi1 consoles in the Greek audio market.
