European beer and sound in Singapore
SINGAPORE: The latest arrival in the Stärker Fresh Beer chain has opened its doors along East Coast Road in Singapore. The company’s beer is produced at its breweries in both Singapore and Malaysia and adopt traditional German brewing techniques to provide patrons with a drink of European-influence. Complementing the German style beers on tap at the new venue is German style interior decoration and delivering the audio coverage is an equally European sound system from Italian manufacturer, K-array.
When seeking an appropriate sound system for 86 East Coast Road, Stärker approached Luther Music Pte Ltd to design and install a system that would be simple to operate and fit with the look of the venue aesthetically. To protect the décor, from both destruction and obstruction, the team from Luther Music designed a setup that avoided the need to drill and kept the cabinets largely hidden from view.
The K-array system installed comprises 12 KT2 Tornado compact speakers, reportedly chosen for the small size as well as the audio quality. Supplementing these are three KU26 subwoofers.
‘K-arrays was selected simply because it had the right mix of high quality sound and was not a visual hindrance to the restaurant’s theme,’ explained Luther Ong, president of Luther Music.
Following the installation, the client is reportedly impressed: ‘Thank you, Luther, for presenting such a fine example of a well-thought out layout and competent system design,’ said Benedict Lim from Stärker.
