"Multi-zone audio system designed to offer independent source select and volume control for each zone."

CASE STUDY: MUSEUM AUDIO SYSTEM


JANDS and Deacons Retravision of Taupo, recently designed, supplied and commissioned a new audio system for the highly acclaimed Taupo Museum of History and Art.


Situated in the heart of Taupo, New Zealand, only minutes from the lake and Taupo’s superb shopping district the museum offers visitors an opportunity to celebrate both art and history in one ideal location. Taupo Museum of History and Art is the home to a blend of heritage and culture; from yesterday’s historic treasures to today’s contemporary art.


The audio system within the museum has been designed as a six zone system controlled by a DBX ZonePRO 1260. Each zone has independent source select and volume control, via dbx ZC Series remote panels, of up to 8 CD/DVD players for background music and AV presentations that run throughout the building.


The speakers are a mixture of flush mount and surface mount JBL Control Series. JBL Control 25T’s were used in the art gallery, Tuwharetoa gallery and courtyard. Control 28’s are installed in the retail/foyer area and flush mount Control 24CT-micro’s in the Taupo regional displays. The sixth zone is the award winning Ora Garden which was recently awarded a gold medal at the world famous Chelsea Flower Show.
