Saturn Audio Visual Installs Audica Professional Style and Quality for The Pigs in
Saturn Audio Visual has recently completed the installation of Audica Professional
MICROseries sound systems for the new guest rooms at The Pigs in Edgefield near Holt
in Norfolk, England. The award winning 17th century The Pigs establishment incorporates
bar, restaurant and accommodation facilities.
For its seven new suites The Pigs wanted to create guest rooms with a real difference.
Situated on the ground floor and decorated in stylish, neutral tones, each of the
light and airy spa rooms comes with a private two-person sauna, dual bathing oak-clad
bath and their own courtyard garden with a fire pit and modern outdoor seating. The
new rooms are located off a sunny central corridor and the seven suites boast high
ceilings, wooden floors, and beautiful marble bathrooms.
Technology also plays a strong part in the new room's facilities, as Olly Smith of
Saturn Audio Visual explained, "Smart TVs with IR remote control play the central
role in the in-room systems, each fed from a WiFi hub and a Freeview HD hub. An additional
MP3 input, for the guest's own phone or portable media player, links into the audio
via a combiner in the feed from the TV to two linked Audica Professional MICROsystems".
The audio is fed to a MICROzone controller/amplifier in the main room. It's built
in amplification is used to power two MICROdot flush-mount loudspeakers positioned
below the TV, which itself is flush-mounted in a specially constructed wall. A line
from the main MICROzone feeds to a second, which again powers two MICROdots - one
in the sauna and a second in the bathroom. The second MICROzone is fully controllable
from a wall-mounted Audica Professional WMR control panel.
"Whilst providing high-tech AV, the systems had to merge seamlessly with the quality,
contemporary décor, so aesthetics were key", continued Olly Smith. "The Audica MICROseries
provides superb audio quality, but its size and style enabled us to design and install
the really discrete solution the customer wanted".
