THE SOUND ROOM UPGRADES THE DEAN TEAM’S AUTOMOTIVE SHOWROOM

IMG_2585

The Dean Team’s showroom was upgraded recently by The Sound Room to better entertain and inform clients through both multi-zone, multi-source high-quality audio and video distribution systems.

The video system is capable of distributing up to six different video sources to an unlimited number of displays. Currently the system has four client facing displays and a large video wall comprised of six 55-inch high brightness LCD panels put in a 3×2 pattern to create a more than 12-foot diagonal screen. The set-up is designed to truly capture the customers’ eye from anywhere in the room.

The screen is capable of showing several different combos of the six sources so they can choose which combination best suits their needs. All of the rooms that have televisions or speakers are capable of mixing and matching the sources and independent control of the volume so they can be tailored to the different sound levels including when they’re entertaining clients. They also have multi-zone paging, that they can use through their own system for announcements and employee communication.

As part of the video distribution system, The Sound Room included two digital signage media players so that both Subaru and Volkswagen sides of the building can have independent signs for clients.

The system is easily controlled through a series of touch panels around the office and The Sound Room also put in scheduling to make it easier when they walk in and out for the day.

Did you know that June 1st is Pepper Day? No, not spicy peppers. Not Dr. Pepper. Not the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It was 50 years ago on June 1stThe Beatles released Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.  In honor of this momentous occasion, Pro-Ject turntables wanted to celebrate and what better way than by creating two Limited Edition Sgt. Pepper themed turntables.

Pepper’s Drum is an upgraded version of the Essential III model, which incorporates a low mass one-piece tonearm with sapphire bearings, an Ortofon OM10 and an acrylic platter. It undergoes a unique painting process that gives it an embossed feel and looks stunning. We will have the Essential III Sgt. Pepper’s Drum for sale for $499.

The 2Xperience Sgt. Pepper is a VERY limited edition model based on the 2Xperience SB and is equipped with an Ortofon 2M Silver. It includes an EVO 3 Carbon Fiber tonearm, composite platter with integrated mat made from recycled vinyl records for the ultimate record/platter interface and built in SpeedBox. This high end turntable not only looks good, but sounds incredible! We will have it available for $1499 for a limited time!

To commemorate the 50th anniversary, Apple Corps gave Giles Martin, the son of Sir George Martin, complete access to the original tapes and encouraged him to do a proper stereo mix while staying faithful to the Beatles’ original vision. In the new Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band Box set, you can hear the original mono mixes, the new stereo mixes and even a 5.1 version as well as outtakes and bonus tracks!

Come into the Sounds Room and listen to the Sgt. Pepper’s re-released album on a limited edition Pro-Ject turntable and enter for a chance to win the “Box Set”! The Limited Edition Pro-Ject turntables can be purchased while supplies last, so be sure to take advantage of these special turntables while they’re in stock!
