Client & Market Sector
Gaucho are a chain of high-end restaurants with multiple sites across London and the UK as well as several international locations. They specialise in fine Argentine steak and are connoisseurs in wine and spirits.
The location of this fit out was the Gaucho Broadgate Branch, located close to Liverpool street station. This is a site that MVS are familiar with. having supported Gaucho with several additions and changes to their music systems. It is just one of the many Gaucho sites that MVS have been providing installation and maintenance services of background audio systems.
Scope of works
The Gaucho Broadgate branch has been fitted with a multizone audio system covering different areas to provide different atmospheres throughout. Bose DS100 speakers have been used in the upstairs bar area to create an upbeat environment with a fuller sound.
The main restaurant areas are zoned in accordance with the seating layouts, with remote levels and source selectors for each zone to provide full control and ease of use. These zones are made up of Bose DS40 speakers in the main areas and Bose DS16 speakers in the private dining areas.
Soundcast wireless speakers have been installed in the outside seating areas which provides a portable solution that allows the staff to be flexible with the audio requirements depending on customer needs and the changing moods throughout the day.
In the main head end are 3 Cloud 100v line amplifiers, an 8 channel Cloud Mixer and a C-Burn networked media player. Using a 100V line system means MVS can be very flexible with the amount of speakers and devices we are using, whilst also providing a powerful and cost effective system. The Cloud Mixer allows remote volume control and source selection for every output channel meaning the system is flexible and user-friendly.
During the recent install, MVS removed all amplifiers from the head end in order to re-cable, clean and maintain the system. During this time MVS also kept the system operating for all areas that weren’t having a refit.
