The Shanghai Latin American Food Festival pulled more than 500 food fans to Huai Hai Road’s elEFANTE Restaurant for ‘music, food and fanfare’ – and some audio give-aways from Sennheiser.
The day’s festivities adopted a travel theme, where ‘elEFANTE Airlines’ took guests on a gastronomic trip through Latin America, covering the cuisine of Argentina, Brazil, Columbia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela – a total of 30 dishes prepared by nine chefs from nine participating Latin American countries.
Staff wore airline uniforms to welcome guests, and ‘immigration’ checks allowed guests to have their passports stamped before admittance.
As the audio sponsor for the event, Sennheiser set up the systems for the day’s musical endeavors – a booth for DJ Amar and an outdoor stage where Kalibre Beat and Huayra served up Latin American rhythms. Sennheiser provided all equipment as well as having an audio team onsite for technical support.
Sennheiser also sponsored a total of 13 draw prizes, including consumer and professional headphones.
‘Latin American Music has taken the world by storm and its amazing riffs, jams, rhythm and soul speak volumes about the Latin culture, not to mention the extraordinary food and we were very lucky to be a part of that for one night,’ says Marc Vincent, President of Sennheiser Greater China.
‘The sound was great,’ said members of Kalibre Beat. ‘I guess it has to be the best sound we’ve ever tried. It’s great for us to play and work with such a professional company and we really enjoyed tonight.’
Sennheiser handles the sound in elEFANTE, for all the events we do here, says elEFANTE owner and chef, Willy Moreno. ‘Sennheiser is our sound partner and we are so happy to bring this Latin party to everyone.’More: www.sennheiser.com

Two nightspots have recently joined a stream others in renewing their sound reinforcement systems. The IN-Bar in Taizhou, Zhejian, and HJFB Bar both turned to Hangzhou Chuangda Stage Facilities for systems drawn from the DAS Audio Aero Series 2 and Avant lines.
As the authorised DAS Audio dealer for Eastern China, Hangzhou Chuangda Stage Facilities coordinated the installation of the systems at both clubs. General Manager Jiang Chao and Technical Representative Xiao Zhao determined that DAS systems were the best choice for the clubs since the onboard amplification was already optimised for the characteristics of each loudspeaker model.

Two of China’s most prestigious nightclubs have recently updated their technical installationsusing Apex Intelli-X2 processors to manage their sound systems – with six further similar installations to follow.
Among them, Xi’ang’s Club TNT is an 850m2 venue offering a diverse course of live music and DJ sets, including pop, rock, electronic and hip-hop. The audio system here was designed and installed by Real Music Acoustic & Lighting Technology, one of China’s leading production technology houses, who specified four Apex Intelli-X2 48 processors to control a comprehensive Adamson loudspeaker system.
‘We designed the system with a matrix of loudspeakers, to ensure that all guests are covered by audio from at least two different directions wherever they are,’ says Real Music MD, Richie Wang. ‘This delivers a uniform sound throughout, maximising the enjoyment and experience for clubbers.
‘They are exceptionally powerful and flexible, deliver fantastic quality sound and are also remarkably straightforward to install and program,’ he adds.
The Club TNT installation also prompted its owner (Nanjing Trendsetter Entertainment Management, NTEM) to ommission Real Music to install a similar system in its latest venture, Club Enzo, an 875m2 venue in Nanjing. Here, three further Apex Intelli-X2 48s were specified.
‘The sound at Club TNT and Club Enzo has really impressed everybody, not least the owners, who are dedicated to building China’s very best nightclubs,’ Wang reports. ‘Using Apex processors is an important part of achieving that aim and we look forward to specifying them at six more high-profile projects for NTEM in the near future.’

Ubiquitous in Asia, the KTV (Karaoke Television) market is estmated to ne worth some US$500. KTV club rooms will play music backing, and display video clips and lyrics for rock star escapism – typically up to 50 private lounges, each featuring dedicated sound systems with sophisticated control and surprising audio quality.
JBL KTV sound systems are becoming a regular sight in the premium China KTV market, where venues in elite neighborhoods combine themed interiors with concierge services, valet parking, and food and drink services.
‘Customers come to KTV venues for a personalised “rock star” singing experience,’ says Daryl Wong, Director of Marketing at Harman Professional, China. ‘It’s entirely appropriate – almost requisite – that they get to enjoy the same audio technologies as those featured on the biggest stages and in the most prestigious recording studios. JBL is the clear sound system of choice for music’s elite performers – whether it’s Canto-pop or traditional folk – and our systems perform as well in the KTV venues of China’s regional cities and towns as they do on stages around the world.’
Available models in the KP600 Series include the KP615 (15-inch woofer, 1.5-inch tweeter), KP612 (12-inch woofer, 1.5-inch tweeter), KP610 (10-inch woofer, 1.5-inch tweeter), and KP618S (18-inch subwoofer); the KS300 series KS312 (12-inch woofer, 1-inch tweeter), KS310 (10-inch woofer, 1-inch tweeter) and KS308 (8-inch woofer, 1-inch tweeter). All models use wooden cabinet enclosures that can be ceiling- or surface-mounted.
This range of loudspeakers is combined within tailored system designs that meet various regional tastes. ‘There is no such thing as a universal loudspeaker,’ Wong says. ‘Geographic regions have discrete preferences for the tonal quality and balance of bass, mid and high frequency ranges.’
In central China, the Yue Hao Hotel in Xi’an, which combines a clean, contemporary design with 5-star amenities, has equipped its KTV rooms with 84 JBL KP612 and KP610 speakers.
Located in China’s southwestern coastal region, meanwhile, the Da Di Entertainment Centre is the best and largest entertainment park in Putian, Fujian, with 136 KP610 speakers installed in 58 KTV rooms. Fujian’s Di Hao Club offers 20 luxurious KTV rooms with tiled walls, chandeliers, multiple built-in video screens – and two KP612 speakers in each room. The QuanzhouJing Yi Hui Fashion Club in Fujian has 19 KTV rooms of opulent elegance, where patrons can sing along to their favorite songs in rooms with velvet seating areas, large video projection screens and a total of 22 JBL KS312 and 18 KS310 ceiling-mounted speakers.
‘When it comes to fixed installations that can be scaled for and tailored to venues of this size, our engineers and product-development specialists working together in China and Northridge have come up with a loudspeaker series that is uniquely designed, built and priced for China’s KTV market,’ Wong says. ‘We are very pleased with the results of their efforts – and it appears the market is too.’
