Touring production specialists Ambion GmbH of Kaufungen, Germany, recently went out on tour  with genre-defying ensemble, Symphoniacs. Fusing classical violin, cello and piano with electronic sounds and beats, Symphoniacs is a collective of young virtuosos from around the world, who present a classical-meets-club mixture that is fresh and distinctly different. The varying nature of the venues demanded a highly flexible, lightweight sound system that was both powerful and of the highest audio quality.


Ambion GmbH chose a CODA Audio ViRAY system used in combination with a TiRAY fill-system. For optimum flexibility the system was completed with CODA SC2-F, 2 x 15" flown sensor controlled bass extensions and SCV-F, single 18" sensor controlled subwoofers. The whole system was driven by LINUS10 amplifiers, using The LINUS Live platform via LINET for distribution and tuning.


Head of Audio at Ambion GmbH, Michael Wengerter commented:

"This was a very exciting and demanding production, working with top-class musicians. We had only one trailer so it was essential that we used a system that could provide the flexibility we required in the different venues but was compact enough for our restricted truck-space. In consultation with system-tech Michael Wirth and FOH engineer Ingo Thürauf, we chose the combination of ViRAY and TiRAY, which proved to be a very good decision."

System-tech Michael Wirth agreed:

"We encountered a wide variety of conditions for rigging and audio but the system delivered excellent performance throughout the tour. I am definitely convinced by the merits of the DDP-driver technology - the system was easy to handle and gave me consistent frequency response in every situation."
