Allen & Heath systems installed in new Icelandic venue

Several Allen & Heath iLive and iDR digital mixers have been installed in Reykjavik’s prestigious new Harpa concert hall and conference centre.

The new venue offers four main spaces to cater for a busy programme of music and conference events. iLive systems comprising an iDR-16 MixRack and iLive-R72 Control Surface have been installed in the Norourljos recital hall and Kaldalon hall, whilst a combined FOH and monitor system, comprising iDR-16 MixRacks and an iLive-R72 and iLive-T80 surfaces, has been selected for the Silfurberg conference hall.

All systems utilise the brand’s proprietary ACE (audio and control over Ethernet) link, and iDR-4 digital matrix mixers are installed in each venue to manage audio distribution. There is also a portable iLive system, comprising an iDR-48 MixRack and iLive-T80 Control Surface, available for any additional audio requirements around the building.

“The iLive systems were chosen because they provide large scale mixing capabilities in a small footprint, which perfectly match the requirements of the new Harpa building,” explained Sverrir Hreidarsson, marketing director at A&H’s Icelandic distribution company, Exton. “The full system of live mixing and fixed install audio distribution provided by the iDR series of products provided the ideal solution for the project”
