gare_de_lest_paris.JPG

PARIS, FRANCE – JUNE 2011: The Gare de l’Est is a train station that connects Paris to Germany, Russia, Switzerland, and other points abroad via high-speed rail, as well as serving as a hub for the Paris Metro.

But despite its age and historical significance (it was from Gare de l’Est that legions of French troops went to the Western fronts of both World Wars), the train station melds old and new elements to form an aesthetic that is strikingly contemporary. Recently, SNCF (France’s railway company) hired United Kingdom- and France-based Sound Directions to update its ticket sales area with sound reinforcement to deliver information and revenue-generating advertisements to waiting customers. Sound Directions relied on a Symetrix Jupiter more

Off the slopes, the idyllic town caters to the recreational proclivities of its unique visitors, for whom high-class food and drink are a natural part of the good life. Therefore, when the upscale Hotel Jerome and the Aspen-posh restaurant Silver Queen approached Colorado-based A/V designer and integrator Halcyon Productions with woes of ailing and difficult-to-control sound systems, co-owner Heath Manning prescribed Ashly Audio’s ne24.24M modular DSP together with the incredibly easy-to-use WR-5 wall mount remote control. The cost-effective units sound great and provide an appropriately simple level of control for the often harried staff of both establishments.

“User control is a critical issue in the commercial atmosphere of a banquet hall, restaurant, or bar, where the staff are more
