Audica MICROseries Chosen by the National Galleries of Scotland
Stonehaven-based Taylored Sound has recently supplied an Audica MICROseries system
for the office of the Director General of the National Galleries of Scotland.
Comprising of five galleries in Edinburgh, and two partner galleries in the North
and South of Scotland, the National Galleries of Scotland’s collections of fine art
are amongst the best in the world. The five Edinburgh galleries are the National
Gallery of Scotland, the Royal Scottish Academy Building, the Scottish National Portrait
Gallery, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and the Dean Gallery, which
also houses administration offices and the office of the Director General.
In a recent refurbishment of the Director General’s office it has been upgraded to
include an AV system for meetings and presentations. Richard Hamilton, Audio Visual
Technician for the National Galleries of Scotland, wanted a very discrete flush ceiling-mount
system, that would fit pre-existing mini spotlight cut outs, and chose the Audica
MICROdots on the solid recommendation of Talyored Sound’s Jimi Troup.
Richard Hamilton, who installed the system, was impressed with the ease of installation
of the MICROdots and with the systems audio performance using the Audica MICRozone
Jimi Troup commented on the choice of Audica, “We needed the most aesthetically discreet
system, but one which would give really good audio quality for all forms of source
material – and the Audica delivers on all counts. I have heard many micro systems
before, but nothing that comes close to the performance of the MICROseries. It also
has to be the neatest of systems and is really user friendly with the inclusion of
an infrared remote control and a user-input on the front of the MICROzone for PC
audio or MP3”.
