MSI puts d&b’s D80 to work at the Tokyo Dome

JAPAN: New Year time is always busy in Japan, yet this year just got a little bit louder as MSI Japan took receipt of 20 brand new d&b D80 amplifiers, and immediately put them use at a Fumi Sesa event taking place in the Tokyo Dome.

‘Here at MSI we have had a strong investment in d&b audiotechnik loudspeaker systems for some time,’ said Shuzo Fujii, CEO of MSI Japan. ‘We had been eagerly awaiting the new D80 amplifier having attended initial trials at the d&b headquarters in Germany. So we ordered the first 20 amplifiers to arrive in Japan and set them immediately to work.’

MSI used the D80s in a very specific live show environment: ‘It was the Tokyo Dome,’ MSI’s chief systems technician, Yuki Natori explained. ‘The D80 is designed to drive all the different d&b loudspeaker series. An unbelievably efficient amplifier, the level of improvements it brings is dependent on the loudspeaker type; for us the massive +4dB it promised for the J-Infra was of particular interest. It just so happened that we had a client event over Christmas where the programme material looked for more lift at the ultra low end of the listening spectrum.’

The sound engineer for the Fumi Sasa event summed it up: ‘The D80 was simple to implement into my system design for the show. My system technician already had the J-Infra's delay arc plotted in ArrayCalc and easily transferred this to the D80s via the R1 remote,’ he said. ‘I didn't need the full potential of the D80, +2dB was more than enough for my purposes. What was great was that the increase in power required no additional EQ, the tone was as pure and smooth as I had experienced previously with J-Infras. With the right musical material these loudspeakers make a subtle but significant contribution to the audience's listening pleasure; that extra power ensured that no seat in the hall failed to enjoy that subtle lift. Good job d&b.’
