A.C. Special Projects Supply and Install Multi Zone Audio System for the Da Mario Restaurant

19th November 2010

A.C. Special Projects Ltd. have provided a cutting-edge multi-zone audio solution for the Da Mario Italian restaurant, famous for being a popular eatery of well-known celebrities.

Located a short walk from Kensington Palace in London, the 120 year old building’s beautiful architecture merges Venetian and Gothic styles and was commissioned by Queen Victoria. In addition to the main ground floor restaurant, the venue features a basement level separated into a bar, a DJ dancefloor used for disco music nights and private parties, and a further smaller dining area.

When Da Mario wanted to centralise control of separate sound systems in each zone, they approached A.C. Special Projects to provide a multi-zone audio distribution system enabling independent control of the music volume level and multiple sources in each room via a remote panel.

A.C. Special Projects specified, supplied and installed a Cloud Z4 multi-zone venue mixer system, CX-A4 four channel amplifier and volume & input selector control panels to provide simple and convenient control of the four zones.

The cost-effective solution has enabled the venue to utilise the existing speakers in three of the zones, only requiring an upgrade to more powerful JBL background audio speakers in the basement dining area to enable improved sound quality at higher volume levels. Two iPod input wall plates were also installed upstairs and downstairs to enable convenient background music selection for the different zones.

A.C. Special Projects also supplied a Denon Professional twin CD player and professional DJ mixer within a case for the dancefloor zone. The venue now has a choice of iPod, DJ and TV music sources from anywhere in the venue.

Marco Molino, owner of Da Mario restaurant, commented: “I’m very pleased with the solution provided by A.C. Special Projects. The audio distribution system has enabled us to perfectly tailor the music source and volume in each room of the restaurant to suit the different times of day and clientele. The system is very easy to use and sounds great! It also delivers a cost-effective solution making use of our existing speakers.”
