Within the framework of the II Edition of the AV Integration Awards, Digital Cinema has been recognised with the award for Best Audiovisual Integration at the Spirit Of Son Fuster estate in Alaró. What has allowed us to win this award is one of the projects we are most proud of. We discover it in the following lines.
We are talking about a project that, in 2021, we carried out in a spectacular Mallorcan mansion in Alaró. The property was renovated by the founder of Purobeach, Puro Hotel and Spirit of the Nomad. We specifically designed and developed an audio system that combines an analogue control in each zone of the property with a digital control that determines the sound source and off/on.
In total, we shaped 15 indoor and outdoor audio zones with the brands Bose and Sonance speakers. One of the elements that has earned us this prestigious recognition is a large inner courtyard with more than 2000 W of power, 1,500 square metres of gardens, terraces and a soundproofed swimming pool. A space in which suspended loudspeakers with rustic style strings stand out. This achieves more quality at low volume and no reverberation, by shortening the distance between the loudspeaker and the listener. The Sonance Garden Series and Rock Series in-ceiling subwoofers in the spa or gym areas stand out. To top it all off, a cinema room with Dolby Atmos technology with Bowers & Wilkins speakers, Marantz amplifiers and Control 4 home automation.
Digital Cinema’s signature, a reason for recognition
A rustic, isolated area with no good internet signal meant we had to resort to analogue. With the phone in your hand you can choose music via Airplay, Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, Amazon Music or Apple Music.
Music can also be played from a networked hard drive. However, to turn the volume up or down you have to use the wall control installed in each zone. The idea is that we can play music in one area without disturbing guests in another area of the mansion.
What does Digital Cinema’s signature amplification consist of?
- 5 units of the Bose Powershare 604 (600w each).
- 2 units of the Bose Powerspace 21200 (2400w power each).
- A Bose CSP-428 DSP processor for audio signal configuration and distribution.
- Independent Bose CC-1 and CC-1D volume controls for each zone embedded in the wall.
In total, there are 15 indoor and outdoor audio zones in this property with Bose and Sonance speakers.
In the swimming pool and barbecue area we placed 4 Bose Panaray 802 loudspeakers for ambient music and mixing desk.
What did the jury value about our project?
They valued the sound integration that we have achieved in the Spirit Of Son Fuster hotel. Among other things, creating synergies with nature and the environment. They highlighted the discreteness of our loudspeakers, hidden among the elements of the natural environment. Another of the ingredients that have helped us to win the award is the spectacular Dolby Atmos cinema.
