Singapore – April 2012 … From its dazzling airport and cityscape to a wealth of fashion emporiums along Orchard Road, Singapore sizzles with excitement. Nowhere is this high level of energy more evident than at SWITCH by Timbre, the latest live music restaurant and bar by the Timbre Group. Located in the arts and heritage district of Bras Basah, the 300-seat, bilingual venue sets the stage for the best up-and-coming Singaporean musicians proficient in Mandarin and English pop-rock and offers live performances nightly. As the third Timbre property to utilize D.A.S. Audio loudspeaker systems, SWITCH by Timbre relies on a potent sound reinforcement system drawn from the company’s Aero Series 2, Road, and Avant loudspeaker product lines.

As with the other Timbre locations, D.A.S. Audio’s Singapore’s office was actively involved in the design and specification of the sound system at SWITCH by Timbre. In addition to the deployment of a substantial number of D.A.S. Audio’s Aero Series 2 loudspeaker enclosures, this new facility is the first installation in Singapore to utilize the company’s new Road Series products, the topnotch stage monitors specifically designed for live music environment.

The loudspeaker setup at SWITCH by Timbre is impressive. The house mains setup consists of eight D.A.S. Audio Aero 8A powered ultra-compact, two-way line array modules. These loudspeakers are flown four enclosures per side using the company’s AX-Aero8 flybars—one for each loudspeaker cluster. Each Aero 8A incorporates a Class D 2-channel power amplifier providing 250 watts for the low frequency transducer and 100 watts for the high frequency driver. The sound system’s low end punch is derived from three D.A.S. Audio LX-215A powered band-pass subwoofers. Featuring an 1800 watt Class D power amplifier in each enclosure, the three subwoofers are ground stacked in a center-mono subwoofer configuration.

Further into the audience area, three D.A.S. Audio Avant 15A compact, full-range loudspeaker systems are deployed. Featuring a 600 watt Class D power amplifier that provides extended bandwidth, improved dynamic range, and exceptionally low distortion, these enclosures serve the all-important function of delay fills—thus ensuring that the music penetrates thoroughly throughout the house.

Up on the stage, performers are treated to a combination of D.A.S. Road 12A powered, 2-way stage monitors plus an Avant 12A multi-purpose loudspeaker. The four D.A.S. Road Series enclosures serve as the stage monitors while the Avant 12A multi-purpose loudspeaker—with its multi-angle enclosure design—serves as the drum monitor. A D.A.S. Audio DSP-4080 4-in / 8-out digital signal processor handles loudspeaker management chores.

Eduardo Lopez, Business Operations Manager for D.A.S. Audio Asia, commented on the success of the new system at SWITCH by Timbre, “We are particularly pleased with the close ties our company has developed with Timbre Group due to their passion for Live Music. At all their outlets with our systems, we know our loudspeakers are put to the test every night with a variety of music performance styles… and our systems respond musically and with even coverage throughout the house. This is precisely why we also collaborated in this new outlet, the 3rd one opened by Timbre with D.A.S. Audio systems. For such an occasion, we decided it was the perfect time to introduce our latest Road Series monitors here in Singapore, and showcase them at their best—with a live performance every night.”

Danny Loong, Chief Creative Director, Timbre Group Pte Ltd, Singapore, commented on the sound system’s performance. “Since our grand opening in February, the D.A.S. setup at SWITCH by Timbre is working very well for us,” says Loong. “As is the case with our other properties, the sound quality is terrific and the equipment is both reliable and durable. This new sound system has tremendous clarity and well-rounded warmth. We are very pleased and look forward to further developing our relationship with D.A.S. Audio.”
