Saturn Audio Visual Installs Audica Professional Style and Quality for The Pigs in Edgefield


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".
