Symetrix Zone Mix 760 handles the audio for the stellar A/V system at Boston’s Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill – the newly-opened, second location at Liberty Wharf on Boston Harbor.
BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS – JULY 2011: A beloved household name in Boston, Jerry Remy is a former Red Sox second baseman and the longstanding commentator for all of his former team’s games. Last year, he partnered with the Cronin Group Restaurants to create Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill just outside of historic Fenway Park. The venture was so successful that the group recently opened a second location at Liberty Wharf on Boston Harbor. An adjacent public dock with fifty slips allows patrons to arrive by land or by sea. Like its predecessor, the new location promises a game-day experience that rivals Fenway itself, with a 32-foot
monster HD video wall (New England’s largest) and forty-six additional large HD plasma screens distributed strategically throughout the open-air establishment. To recreate the same elements that continue to draw such throngs at the Fenway Park location, the owners again called on Rob Soluri of Custom Cable to design and install the all-important AV system. Similarly, Soluri called on the Symetrix Zone Mix 760 to once again deliver easy-to-use, reliable, and cost-effective digital signal processing.
“The audio/visual system is a critical component of the original location’s success,” explained Soluri. “The owners definitely wanted a well-differentiated audio/visual system at the new seaside location, as well. The visuals are what grab your attention when you enter Jerry Remy’s, but I knew that the audio quality had to be commensurate with the brilliance of all those screens. It’s the perfect job for the Symetrix Zone Mix 760, which, apart from sounding fantastic, is competitively priced, quick to set up, and steadfastly reliable. Paired with Symetrix ARC wall panels, I can tailor those aspects of the system that the user has control over. Thus, from the user’s viewpoint, the audio system is intuitive, dependable, and less expensive than they anticipated.”
Concomitantly with the new Jerry Remy installation, Soluri installed an A/V system at the adjacent Temazcal Cantina, as both establishments are under the same ownership. The two systems are approximately paralleled, excepting a few different zone definitions and loudspeaker counts as called for by the particulars of each space. Each has its own Symetrix Zone Mix 760, which provides a wealth of inputs for DirecTV receivers, iPod, iTunes/Pandora, Shure ULX wireless microphones, live web, radio, and TV broadcast, as well as six outputs for location-specific zoning. The systems deliver precise volume and equalization requirements to bar, restaurant, bathroom and hallway zones. Tannoy V12 loudspeaker provide the bulk of the content, with a few Tannoy CMS 801DC loudspeakers for fill. Tannoy VS 15DR subwoofers convey the low-end, and Lab.gruppen C 10:4X and C 28:4X amplifiers provide the power. Users select input sources and adjust zone volumes with strategically placed Symetrix ARC-2 wall panels.
