Muscat's lavish Grand Hyatt hotel plays hosts a list of five-star facilities and amenities, including several in-house entertainment venues, which recently received an extensive audio upgrade.
Regarded as some of Oman’s hottest nightspots, Club Safari, Copacabana and the Afrah Ballroom all had their audio capabilities enhanced with the installation of Lab.gruppen’s range of C Series multi-channel power amplifiers, which were supplied and installed by Lab.gruppen’s exclusive distributor in Oman, Bright Lights.
Club Safari is a three-level venue that received a powerful four-channel Lab.gruppen C 68:4 to run the main stage PA.
The system comprises two 18-inch subs and two 12-inch mid-high cabinets from Ohm, while the stage monitor system runs-off an eight-channel C 20:8X powering six 12-inch Ohm wedges - the remaining channels power the in-fill surround speakers.
Billed as Muscat’s premier club, Copacabana was the second venue to benefit from the Lab.gruppen upgrade.
Like Club Safari, a C 68:4 is the workhorse behind the main system, but in this instance the mid-high section is comprised of four 12-inch loudspeakers.
A further four-channel C 28:4 powers the two by 700W DJ monitor system, with the remaining channels driving the delayed surround sound system.
The Afrah Ballroom has been equipped with two C 68:4 power amplifiers, which drive a total of 32 Ohm BR6 250W speakers across four separate zones.
Bright Light’s Sabri Al-Busaidi said Lab.gruppen’s C Series multi-channel power amplifiers range proved to be the ideal choice to meet the Grand Hyatt Muscat’s power requirements.
“I am delivering more power with better sound quality, while using only a fraction of the total number of units than what was previously the case, so I’m saving on space, time and money,” said Al-Busaidi.
