Allen & Heath selected for audio at Isola, Thailand

Isola is an Italian fine dining restaurant by Signor Sassi in downtown Bangkok. Allen & Heath has been selected to serve as the core component of the audio system.

As the establishment has a main dining area, VIP rooms and two terraces, Simone del Ferro, general manager of the restaurant, wanted smooth operation of the system with zoning functionality. The ability to control source and volume in all zones and presets based on time were all key.

Delivering the functionality needed when considering the various zones and regular live music and DJ performances, Thailand-based integrators Aura Visual System specified and installed an AHM-16 audio matrix processor.

Teamed with a loudspeaker solution from Void Acoustics which complemented the aesthetics of Isola, the venue benefits from low-latency high quality audio.

The restaurant regularly has DJs performing during the later hours of the evenings, so it was important to have an adaptable, high-quality sound system in place that could handle the demands of the establishment. With Allen & Heath’s Custom Control app, accessed via a wall-mounted CC-7 touch panel, del Ferro can access and manage the music source selection, level control, preset recall and more.

Phankom, sales manager for Aura Visual System, said: “We have customised the GUI of the touchscreen controllers to make them blend in with the floral and lemon wallpaper décor. Easy operation was an important factor. The restaurant manager doesn’t need to be concerned with Automatic Noise Compensation, processing with crossover filter, limiter and delays on every input and zone. They simply want to change the volume or source in between greeting guests and overseeing dining operations.”
