A virtual press conference from Sound & Video Contractor



BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS: Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill recently opened its doors just a bean’s throw away from historic Fenway Park, home of Boston’s beloved Red Sox. Remy played second base for the club in the late 1970s and early 1980s before transitioning to broadcasting. Fans now know him best for his color commentary during Red Sox broadcasts. His new bar offers a forward-thinking “season pass,” which guarantees its holder a table or barstool at every Red Sox game for a mere $500. Accordingly, Remy and his partners had high expectations for the A/V system. They turned to Boston-based Custom Cable Services, who designed and installed an elegant, effective system centered on a Symetrix Zone Mix 760.

The audio system wrangles a large number of potential input sources, including DirecTV receivers, iPod, iTunes/Pandora, Shure ULX wireless microphones, live web, radio, and TV broadcast. The bar’s audio system allows them to conveniently tie in to reinforce the DJ/broadcaster, along with the station’s program material, without dragging along an extra PA system


Jerry Remy’s video content is displayed on two large eleven-foot wide spyglass rear projection screens that use two Panasonic PT DW10000U projectors. To compliment the large screens the restaurant has twenty additional LG sixty-inch plasma televisions and six 23-inch LCD screens that give patrons plenty of great viewing choices.

The Symetrix Zone Mix 760 is a member of Symetrix’ Integrator Series of cost-effective, fixed-architecture DSP units that are perfectly suited for small- to medium-scale projects. At Remy’s, the Zone Mix 760 collects all of the input sources and provides all of the necessary EQ, filtering, dynamics, and logic before outputting to two Lab.gruppen C 10:4X amplifiers and one Lab.gruppen C 24:8 amplifier. The amps power a collection of Tannoy loudspeakers. Eight Tannoy V8 and eight Tannoy V12 full-range boxes provide most of the sound for the bar. Fourteen Tannoy CVS6 ceiling-mounted speakers supplement them.

The bar manager controls the system from three Symetrix ARC-2 wall panels for the selection of source material and volume. Custom Cable Services principal Robert Soluri appropriately hid all of the Symetrix Zone Mix 760′s input conditioning, routing logic, and speaker processing, so as not to trouble the manager with controls that were beyond his or her understanding and to prevent even well-intentioned meddling of the well-tuned system.

“The Symetrix Integrator Series has four killer attributes that make it the ideal solution for jobs like this,” said Soluri. “First, the sound quality and ease of programming are excellent. Second, the price point is very competitive. Third, they never fail. And fourth, the Symetrix ARC interface plates make a system easier to operate for the user than a car stereo. So I can go in, build an ideal system that is easy to operate, in very little time and for less money than the client is expecting, and be assured it will work flawlessly after I leave.”
