We wanted that same sound coherence and linearity [as M'elodie] in our new, large-scale system. And with its power-to-size ratio and truck-space savings, LYON arrived at just the right time.”
Igor DemčákManaging Director, Amex Audio
Senec-based Amex Audio s.r.o. in Slovakia has invested in a new Meyer Sound LYON linear sound reinforcement system as its flagship product to serve its most important customers. With LYON’s power and clarity, Amex has been hired by clients that range from Mercedes-Benz to Pohoda Festival and the Slovakian “X Factor” show.
“We already had a M’elodie system, and were very happy with the sound of Meyer Sound products,” says Igor Demčák, managing director of Amex Audio. “We wanted that same sound coherence and linearity in our new, large-scale system. And with its power-to-size ratio and truck-space savings, LYON arrived at just the right time.”
Amex Audio’s purchase includes 28 LYON linear line array loudspeakers and a Galileo Callisto loudspeaker management system with two Galileo Callisto 616 array processors. The core LYON system is augmented as needed by other Meyer Sound loudspeakers from inventory, including M’elodie line array loudspeakers, JM‑1P arrayable loudspeakers, and 600-HP and 500-HP subwoofers.
“When we used the system for “X Factor” and the Pohoda Festival, the FOH engineers were curious and amazed,” reports Demčák. “‘What is this system?’ they asked. It was their first experience with LYON, and they were very happy with what they heard.”
Other recent events that have used Amex’s LYON system include the Uprising Reggae Festival featuring Shaggy, Jimmy Cliff, and Dub FX; and an electronica concert by producer/DJ Bonobo.
Founded in 1994 and operating under its current name since 2006, Amex Audio provides sound systems and full production support for corporate events and live television shows, as well as for major music festivals and concerts.
