Spotlight 29 Casino Hits the Jackpot with Meyer Sound's MICA
A few hundred miles outside Los Angeles on Interstate 10, Joshua trees, tumbleweeds, and lengthy stretches of desert start to outnumber convenient stores, strip malls, and nondescript suburbs by a large margin. With water and livable land at a premium, it's easy to see why the nomadic Chemeheuvi tribe first settled at the Oasis of Twenty-Nine Palms in the mid-1800s (currently the Oasis of Mara at Joshua Tree National Park). Today, this picturesque area, located about 30 minutes from Palm Springs, is home to descendants of the Chemeheuvi tribe, the 29 Palms Band of Mission Indians. Situated on their reservation lands lies an oasis of a different sort: Spotlight 29 Casino, an upscale gaming, dining, and entertainment establishment that donates proceeds to help provide housing, financial aid, and security for the Tribe and its future generations.

Golden Nugget Polishes Shine with Meyer Sound
In a town with a reputation for venues springing up overnight, the Golden Nugget is an anomaly: a legendary piece of history. First opened in 1946 by Guy McAfee, an ex-vice detective from Los Angeles, "the largest casino in the world" was designed to replicate the original Golden Nugget built on San Francisco's Barbary Coast and built at a then-staggering cost of $1,000,000. In a city known for rewriting the rules, the Golden Nugget was home to a number of firsts: the first to introduce a center dealer (until 1950, poker players dealt their own cards in no-limit games), the first casino to award a large single cash prize ($10,000 in 1968), and the first Las Vegas venue to open a formal showroom.

Chumash Casino Makes Things Easy with MILO
Located in Santa Barbara County between Los Angeles and San Francisco, the Chumash Casino Resort is a hotel and casino complex set on the tribal reservation of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians in the lush, green hills of the central California wine country, the region featured in the Oscar-nominated motion picture "Sideways." After a fitful series of attempts at establishing gambling as a revenue source for the tribe, a casino was first opened on the site in 1994, but a recent major expansion turned the existing casino into a parking structure for the new resort. Offering Las Vegas-style gaming 24/7, the 94,000 square feet of casino floor and 106-room hotel, which was completed mid-2004, the casino also presents an array of top-notch musical entertainment, with Rose Royce, BB King, Chicago, Michael McDonald, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Cheap Trick, and Willie Nelson all scheduled to appear at the resort's Samala Room through early May.

Meyer Sound Arrays Add to Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre Down Under
To those of us in the more densely populated northern hemisphere, Australia often represents a sort of "Through the Looking Glass" paradigm. Their winter is our summer, their night is our day, and their flora and fauna are the stuff of another world. In keeping with that same inverted reality, the majority of Oz's urban environs are located in the country's cooler southern climes, while the sunny, tropical north is characterized by a slow moving, relaxed atmosphere on a par with our Caribbean or Mediterranean regions.

Jakarta Convention Center Goes Self-Powered with Meyer Sound
As a top Indonesian destination for live indoor concerts, the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC) has seen its share of performances by high-profile touring acts such as Natalie Cole, Mariah Carey, and Enrique Iglesias. But the facility also hosts a huge range of locally-originating events, not only entertainment and meetings but also celebratory gatherings including college graduations and even large-scale wedding receptions. It's a busy place, with multiple events occurring simultaneously and tight turnarounds for room utilization. To meet the varied demands, JCC's sound reinforcement gear has to be flexible, quick to set up, and deliver predictably consistent quality across a multitude of configurations. Since 1992, the answer for the JCC has been relying on Meyer Sound loudspeakers, a commitment recently renewed with the acquisition of 56 new cabinets to bring its total Meyer Sound complement to nearly 100 components.

The side walls are notable for their gold leaf murals depicting greyhounds and gazelles. Sadly, the building fell into disrepair over time, and its sound system was badly outdated. In June of 2005, the non-profit State Theatre of Modesto, Inc. was formed and planning for a comprehensive renovation project commenced.

Meyer at St. Mary's - Sound From the Shadows
Acoustics and visual aesthetics frequently collide in churches with older buildings and traditional architecture, where liturgical worship styles are often the norm. Here, clergy and worshippers prefer their loudspeakers to be highly intelligible yet essentially invisible—unlike the situation in newer worship centers where loudspeakers in open view rarely raise objections. Fortunately, at St. Mary's Episcopal Church in El Dorado, Arkansas, potential conflicts between acoustics and aesthetics were resolved by the installation of a discreet, self-powered loudspeaker system from Meyer Sound.

Meyer Sound Helps Mythbusters Attain Smashing Success
By now, the legion of fans of the Discovery Channel's intrepid "Mythbusters" TV show are well acquainted with Meyer Sound. First, the show's two hosts, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, called on Meyer Sound Staff Scientist Dr. Roger Schwenke to test the urban myth that a duck's quack does not echo (it does). The two returned several months later and fetched Schwenke once more to assist in determining whether or not there is a "brown note:" a low frequency which, when played at sufficient volume, causes "involuntary intestinal motility" in humans. That investigation ended up entailing a dozen modified Meyer Sound 700-HP ultrahigh-power subwoofers and the efforts of John Meyer and several other Meyer Sound staffers. (In case you were wondering, things did not come out in the end.) While the myth was debunked, this experience stimulated John Meyer's interest in exploring extreme low frequency response, which directly influenced construction of Meyer Sound's own recently-completed 57-seat theatre, located at the company's Berkeley headquarters.
