Volta, Didsbury – background music system

Jo vOLTA SOUND SYSTEM

As part of their expansion plans, VOLTA called on us to install a background music system in their newly refurbished upstairs room.

The owners who also own ELEKTRIK bar in Chorlton like to do this different, this is the same when it comes to their audio installations.

Keeping the retro feel in the front room, we installed the owner provided Mordaunt Short “Paegent” hifi speakers and to blend in the smaller room we opted for a pair of Apart Mask 4’s.

The whole system is powered by an Apart Concept 1 two zone amplifier with remote, volume levels are limited to protect the installation and to avoid any potential noise complaints.

Future plans are to distribute the audio from downstairs across two floors.

Background music system and Projector installation – Ezra and Gill – Manchester

The owners of Ezra and Gil contacted us to provide a background music system for their new café in the Northern Quarter, Manchester. Prior to providing a quotation we set up a demo of various speaker options at the café.

Following a meeting and a demo due to it’s small footprint, brilliant sound quality and unobtrusive design we agreed to go for the APart Audio Mask4T loudspeakers.
