Symetrix bring Smartphone Sound Technology to Park City's Grub Steak Restaurant


Grub Steak Restaurant in Park City, Utah, carves out a unique niche by providing flexible meeting and event space for local businesses, clubs, and revelers.

However, an aging, patched-together sound reinforcement system was making it hard for the management to accommodate the multimedia needs of the restaurant’s rental clients.

Performance Audio, of nearby Salt Lake City, designed and installed a new system centered on a Symetrix Jupiter 12 App-Based Turnkey DSP loaded with nearly forty customised presets to cover every conceivable configuration.

Grub Steak’s managers and regular clients select the presets and adjust input and output volumes from their smartphones using robust Symetrix ARC-WEB technology.

“Grub Steak originally had a zone for each of the three main dining and meeting spaces,” explained Performance Audio's Jake Peery. “But its collection of old mixer/amps was making it difficult or impossible to get signal from one place to another.

"We integrated everything with a Symetrix Jupiter 12, which delivers a tremendous feature set for a very affordable price. In addition, we gave them another zone for the restroom and lobby area. Now they can combine, distribute and adjust inputs any way they like.”

The inputs include iPod docks, line level jacks, microphone jacks, a pair of wireless microphones, background music sources and a live feed from the main dining room’s modest stage.

Peery also created nearly forty custom presets to cover every possible input selection and routing scenario the restaurant management requested. He also created four Symetrix ARC-WEB panels that, with password clearance, can be accessed from any smartphone or other Internet-connected device. Each ARC-WEB panel provides individualised control of a specified zone.

“They also recognised that with so much flexibility, they had the potential to dig themselves into trouble,” said Peery. “So we also gave them a hardwired Symetrix ARC-2e wall panel remote in the office with a reset selection that recalls a sensible default setup and gain structure.”

A new Ashly TRA-4150 amplifier delivers 250W to each of the four 70V zones. A handful of blown loudspeakers made way for new Atlas replacements, whereas the rest were in good shape and remain with the new processing and amplification.

“I’ve never created so many presets as I did with this job,” said Peery. “But it was easy to do with the Jupiter’s app based programming, and the client is very happy with the system’s new functionality. In fact, it’s so simple to use that Grub Steak has shared the ARC-WEB password with a few regular clients, such as the local Rotary Club.”

Chris Haymond, Grub Steak manager agreed: “Yes, the new system is easy, flexible, and reliable. We’re now set up to make excellent use of our meeting and event space.”
