City Casino Basel Diversifies with Meyer Sound MINA

A new permanent audio system structured around the Meyer Sound MINA line array loudspeaker has been installed at Switzerland’s City Casino Basel

Part of Switzerland’s cultural landscape since 1824, City Casino Basel occupies two multipurpose spaces in addition to the Musiksaal, its principal concert hall. In the past few years, however, interest in jazz, blues, and stand-up comedy has grown, highlighting the inadequacies of the Musiksaal’s long-serving loudspeakers.

With many touring productions bringing in their own sound reinforcement equipment, the Musiksaal team decided that it needed a high-quality loudspeaker system.

“Yes, we could have selected a cheaper system, but if we can’t rent it out successfully then we don’t really gain anything,” said Casino-Gesellschaft Basel Managing Director Thomas Koeb. “With Meyer Sound, there is a remarkable level of international recognition. From our conversations at the start of this search, it became clear that engineers are very happy when they encounter a Meyer Sound PA.”

The Musiksaal’s new system includes 20 MINA line array loudspeakers, two UPJ-1P VariO loudspeakers, two UPJunior VariO loudspeakers, two UPA-1P loudspeakers, six UPM-1P loudspeakers, two 700-HP subwoofers, 16 MM-4XP self-powered loudspeakers, and a Galileo loudspeaker management system with two Galileo 616 processors.

Installation was undertaken by Landau Electronic in collaboration with M&R Multimedia Productions, which will provide ongoing maintenance and support. A Yamaha LS9 series mixer and microphones from DPA, Shure, and Sennheiser were also part of the upgrade.
