Analogue amphitheatre goes digital

AUTHOR: Inavate

The Jerudong Park Amphitheatre in Brunei has purchased an Allen & Heath digital iLive system, comprising an iDR10 MixRack and iLive-176 Control Surface.

In addition to various community services and events, the venue has hosted a long line of premier international artists and theatrical productions including Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Seal, Janet Jackson, Ronan Keating and Spirit of the Dance.

The venue wanted to migrate its FOH set up from an analogue to a digital system and approached Singapore installation firm, BCI. They recommended the Allen & Heath iLive system due to its distributed audio design and flexible architecture, making it an ideal choice for the large size of the venue and the variety of major productions hosted there.

"The iLive-176 system has exceeded our expectations and has been the perfect solution because of its magnificent sound quality, user-friendliness, flexibility and functionality," said JP Amphitheatre’s head of sound and lighting, Asmalee Hj Bujang. "I am impressed with the quality of the new system, we have never heard the sound with such clarity, the mix is very clean, and the reverbs are absolutely stunning. iLive adds a new dimension to our events, it is a great system for live show use, and built-in dynamics processing is a huge advantage."
