In a move to expand its touring rental business, Pennsylvania-based DBS Audio Systems has invested in a Meyer Sound LYON linear sound reinforcement system in advance of a busy summer concert season.
“LYON has won accolades from major artists and respected engineers and will give us an excellent position in the touring market,” said Dave Brotman, DBS president. “The time is right for the upgrade, and we’re excited to be the first rental company in the tri-state area to offer the most advanced loudspeaker technology available.”
The system comprises 16 LYON-M main and eight LYON-W wide-coverage line array loudspeakers, in addition to six 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements. A Galileo Callisto loudspeaker management system with Galileo Callisto 616 array processors provides system drive and alignment. In the next few months, the system is already slated to serve the 14,000-capacity Mann Center for the Performing Arts, summer home of the Philadelphia Orchestra and the host of a full schedule of pop, jazz, and rock concerts. When not in residence, the system will support a range of summer festivals and corporate events.
“I first heard a LYON demo in New York, and the sound quality at all levels is very impressive,” Brotman added. “Also, the LYON rigging system is just spectacular – it will significantly reduce the time and labor needed to fly the system, making it perfect for corporate events with tight scheduling.”
