J Sound Services Specifies Yamaha and EtherSound for Ovation-Produced Event

jason-spence-at-yamahapm5d-opryland.jpg

BUENA PARK, Calif.—J Sound Services of Nashville recently designed a complete audio system for event planner Ovation, hired by the National Wild Turkey Federation for a corporate event featuring a concert by Trace Atkins, The Band Perry, and several other musical acts. Held at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel Delta Ballroom, the audio system design was based around a Yamaha PM5D-EX as the main mixing system, EtherSound, and Yamaha ES devices to distribute audio. Jason Spence, owner of J Sound Services was hired as the production mixer for the event.

“There are a couple of reasons I chose to distribute audio using Yamaha components and EtherSound,? states Spence. “The event was held in a hotel ballroom where labor charges are astronomical. By utilizing CAT5 instead of hundreds of pounds of copper to distribute the multiple channels of I/O saved time and money. I chose Yamaha network components for their seamless integration with EtherSound, Yamaha product reliability, and sound quality. With zero margin for error on this gig, I had complete faith in the gear. The ability of the Yamaha PM5D to operate at 96K and its sound quality in addition to its add-on effects of classic compressors, tape emulators, etc., I knew sonically I was in good shape.?

The system was able to distribute digital I/O to three different mix locations, PA drive lines, back of house and record feeds at 96K, all over CAT5 with no degradation of audio. The total networkable system I/O was 112 in x 56 out.
Due to cable paths, the CAT5 ran from the Yamaha DCU5D, located at front of house with the PM5D, to a Yamaha DSP5D Expander residing backstage, a distance of nearly 600 feet. Spence inserted an active gigabit switch between locations to ensure that proper signal strength was maintained. The guest FOH and Monitor mix position utilized a Yamaha M7CL digital audio console for most acts, and a Yamaha SB168-ES Stage Box was used to pickup all necessary I/O at the guest position.

“Our challenge was to create an audio environment able to accommodate a multi-functional program consisting of presentations, live auction, awards, and several concerts,? more
