I have put this in Golden Oldies, as this bar/restaurant has a bespoke retro sound system installed. Some lovely gear here.

Check out the price on that mixer though

Sadly I’ve been and the system isn’t up to the job of covering the bar when it’s busy. The hifi sounds really aggressive when pushed that loud. Great if you go another time but when they have a decent name on the decks it’s not the best experience, especially with them at face height.

Bridge, Lion and Bonobo in Tokyo are places that do this right!

We did a similar (but more ‘budget’) thing in Manchester with some PMC monitors and a MasterSounds setup.

Interesting Toasty, good to have a first-hand experience of it.

This is the chap who built the system.

Looks beautifully made, but biblically expensive i bet.

Both statements are correct. It sounds amazing for sure at lower levels but the background noise level in that sort of environment is high, so the DJ turns it up, and then...

It doesn’t help that there are only two stacks barely over head height. Some of the seats near the DJ are ear splitting and the ones further away are muffled by bodies.

The placement of those multi cell horns/mids and everything up does look like it is instantly going to be overwhelmed with just a few people in front of them. They really do need to be a bit higher/tilted even if that doesn't 100% square with the look desired..

I saw an article about Living Voices £1,000,000 system. Looked absolutely amazing and the craftsman ship was phenomenal.

I agree with Toasty. I often have meetings there during the day with just 'above background' music and sounds glorious. As soon as it fills up it gets really shrill, really quick. 

Looks great though! Good cocktails too
