Home to the Napa Valley Symphony, the Lincoln Theater (Yountville, Calif., www.lincolntheater.org) required a $20-plus-million renovation of aesthetic, structural, acoustical and technical upgrades to morph from a recreational facility to a world-class performance space. Included in the install were a Meyer Sound loudspeaker system; a Soundcraft MH3 console; Tascam source players and recorders; and Lexicon, dbx and Ashly ouboard. The equipment room houses a Meyer LD-3 compensating line driver for the M2D arrays, an audio distribution system, Symetrix voice processors and a Moxia Ethernet-to-serial converter. Elton Halley of San Francisco Bay Area DECK Productions, consulted on the project and was later brought onboard as the venue's technical director. Halley used Meyer Sound's MAPP Online Pro to make the system fit hand-in-glove with the moderately reverberant, “symphony-friendly” architectural design of Auerbach and Associates.
