The Cinema 8 Complex was opened in Schöftland, Switzerland in early November, featuring restaurants, bars, a hotel and bowling alley alongside an open-air cinema and a total of four movie theatres of the highest acoustic standard. Hanno Ziesche of AudioSonic was responsible for the room acoustics as well as the conceptualization of the loudspeaker system. Each of the four cinemas are fitted with the new Dolby Atmos system and is exclusively equipped with Fohhn loudspeaker systems.
130 Fohhn Linea LX-100 line source speakers were installed for optimum sound reinforcement and the best possible realisation of Dolby Atmos. Furthermore 30 Fohhn AT-50 speakers, 20 Fohhn D-4.1200 power amps, six Fohhn PS-9 subwoofers, more than 40 Fohhn D-4.750 power amps, 12 Fohhn AS-40 subwoofers, 24 Fohhn AT-35 speakers and 44 Fohhn CS-10 ceiling speakers were integrated. Every loudspeaker complies with the high Dolby standards. Even during the installation stage the perfect implementation of Dolby Atmos with Fohhn speaker systems was highly praised by the Cinema 8 operators and Dolby controllers alike. But audiences, too, are most enthusiastic about the sound of the cinemas and speak of an entirely novel cinematic experience.
