Delta Sound invests in EM Acoustics HALO Compact line array

Delta Sound has invested in another 43 HALO-C compact line array enclosures from UK manufacturer EM Acoustics, bringing its total inventory to over 130 units including the system installed into the Royal Albert Hall in 2013.

According to Delta’s operations director, Jonathan Bell, the investment decision with HALO-C was a simple one: “The system has already proved itself to us many times over, not least of which by winning the tender with SBD to re-equip the Royal Albert Hall. Going through that process enabled us to evaluate the system extremely thoroughly. In short, it’s an extraordinary product. The clarity and detail is exceptional, but what is truly outstanding in our opinion is the level of accuracy and ability to control dispersion over significant distances.”

“When the time came to increase our inventory of rental stock, we decided on HALO-C; first, as a complement to the existing system in the RAH as it allows us to quickly provide a reconfigured system with precisely the same control and accuracy as before,” continued Bell. “Secondly, it also enables us to provide that same predictability and transparency on many other live events and productions, not to mention the build quality and fantastic support we receive from the team at EM Acoustics.”

EM Acoustics operations director Mike Wheeler agreed: “Delta Sound and Sound by Design have tested the HALO Compact system extensively prior to their purchase. They’ve used HALO-C not just on the shows at the Royal Albert Hall but on many prestigious and acoustically challenging shows in different venues. Clearly when it came to adding to their rental inventory they were determined to invest in a system which was flexible enough and robust enough to perform exactly as expected day after day in a wide variety of applications. As one of the premier suppliers to the corporate event industry, Delta Sound’s decision to add HALO-C to its mainstream rental stock is a testament to the all-round qualities and adaptability of the HALO Compact system, in addition to its exceptional sonic qualities.”
