United Digital Integrators Selects Crown Audio’s Commericial Series Amps With XM Radio To Provide Quality Sound For Uptown Kitchen Restaurant

uptown-kitchen-outside.JPGTaking advantage of Crown’s Commercial Audio Series amplifiers with a built-in XM Radio tuner, Uptown Kitchen, located in Granger, Indiana recently underwent a system overhaul and now has clear, balanced background music throughout the restaurant, matching the bright and fun atmosphere the owners have created.

Unhappy with the previous system, Owner Jonathan Lutz turned to United Digital Integrators (UDI) to fix their “musical problems? and bring in a great sounding and easy to use solution for their indoor and outdoor seating areas. Prior to the installation, the previous system needed to be reset every 20 minutes, causing massive interruption with the service of its customers. By using the Crown amplifier with built-in XM Radio service, Jonathan is able to change stations between the breakfast and dinner crowds to match the atmosphere he’s created for each.

The new system consists of two Crown amplifiers; the 180MAx Pack is an 80W mixer amplifier with built-in XM Radio tuner and comes with four JBL Control 1S speakers. The system also includes a Crown 1160MA 160W single channel amplifier and eight additional JBL Control 1S speakers.

“Our goal for Uptown Kitchen was to fix two big issues; the unreliable digital music player and to eliminate hot spots in the audio system,? said Kevin Cleary, president of UDI. “We’ve used the Crown/JBL combination in previous jobs and they always complement each other very well. We wanted to give Jonathan a convenient solution with even sound throughout the restaurant and I think we achieved that goal.?

“Working with UDI was an extremely good experience,? said Uptown Kitchen Owner Jonathan Lutz. “Kevin and his team clearly knew what they were doing! They finally solved our problems with our music system. The sound is fantastic and completely surpassed our expectations.?

Crown’s 180MAx is its first integrated tuner-mixer-amplifier designed for commercial use and delivers XM Satellite Radio programming in digital sound quality as part of the XM for Business service, managed by PlayNetwork, Inc. on behalf of XM Satellite Radio. The 180MAx is currently available through PlayNetwork, Inc.
