BARCELONA, SPAIN – MAY 2011: Two new hybrid restaurant-bars have stolen the limelight in Barcelona, Spain. Situated in the resurgent neighborhood of El Poble-sec, Tickets and 41° share the same prestigious proprietors, a roof & a wall, and a hi-fi sound system that parallels the ultra-modern, utterly-hip décor.

Though separately zoned, the two establishments rely on a single, two-rack space Ashly pêma powered processor for all input conditioning, matrix mixing, loudspeaker conditioning, and amplification.
