GL Events Invests In Yamaha DXR Loudspeakers
With offices throughout France and ten other countries globally, GL Events is in the premier league of event service companies. Whether it be organising, producing, hosting or equipping events, the company delivers only the best to its clients, which is why it has invested in a significant consignment of 56 Yamaha DXR8 powered speakers.
The company services productions ranging from the biggest to the smallest. A significant part of its market is conferences, presentations and arena shows, where multiple smaller loudspeakers are preferred to concert-style PA systems.
As the most compact of the active DXR Series, the DXR8 measures just 458 x 280 x 280mm. Yet it delivers a remarkable 1100W of power and features the same ultra-precise 48-bit DSP processing, intelligent dynamics control, onboard three channel mixer and extensive DSP protection functions as the rest of the DXR range.
The result is high powered audio with outstanding resolution, delivered from a unit that is exceptionally easy to handle, with negligible impact on audience sightlines.
“We looked at a number of different loudspeaker ranges and narrowed the choice down to two types, one of which was the DXR8,” says Frédéric Viricel, Audio Production Manager at GL Events. “We compared the sound of the two loudspeakers and the DXR8 was more precise, which is very important for speech intelligibility.
“We also liked the DXR8’s small size and ‘soft’ outline. The active controls are very easy to use and, when we compared the prices, it was also more cost-effective. The quality/price ratio is remarkable,” ads Pascal Favorini, Audio Planning Manager.
Another factor in GL Events' decision was the optional UBDXR8 bracket kit, which makes the DXR8 very easy to mount in any situation.
The UBDXR8 makes the loudspeaker even more flexible, it was an easy decision to order one for each of the DXR8s we bought,” Frederic continues. “The support from Yamaha Music Europe (France) is also excellent. We look forward to using the DXR8s to deliver superb audio to a wide range of audiences.”
