Systems integrator HUST designed and installed a 40-zone networked sound system at the Grand Park Hotel Rovinj that employs Linea Research amplifiers, managed by a Biamp Tesira SERVER-IO AVB digital network server.
“Linea Research amplifiers are one of the most reliable amplifiers that we’ve used in our projects,” said Tomislav Stubican of HUST d.o.o. “We have never had a problem with them, so they were the right choice for a demanding system that needs to be always running. We especially like their sound quality and their performance. Price is also a big benefit of Linea Research amplifiers.”
The hotel’s grand ballroom is equipped with Community V Series and D Series loudspeakers. More than 700 Apart CM series ceiling loudspeakers and MASK Series surface-mount speakers deliver background music to the public areas, such as the lobby, restaurants, conference rooms, and pools. An audio mixer supports live performances.
To drive these loudspeaker systems, the HUST team chose Linea Research XiB4 and 44C amplifiers. The XiB4 is a four-channel amp that delivers up to 1,250W RMS continuous power per channel into 2 ohms, with all channels driven. Its tamper-proof front panel is especially valuable in a publicly accessed space such as a hotel or conference center.
The Linea Research 44C Series four-channel amplifiers includes three models, the largest of which is the 44C20, which can deliver up to 5,000W RMS of continuous power per channel into 2 ohms, with all channels driven. These extremely efficient and powerful amplifiers are optimized for installations and are often chosen for audio-over-IP networks.
“The Grand Park Hotel Rink is the most fashionable and sophisticated hotel in Croatia,” Stubican asserts. “Satisfying the architects’ and hotel owner’s wishes was extremely challenging but by carefully selecting brands such as Linea Research that offered the highest standards of audio performance, we met their requirements. Linea Research amplifiers’ power, reliability, and value make it easy to choose them for our projects.”
