Casino Cirsa Valencia
The sound system project and supply was provided by the company Telesonic Valencia
The increasing leisure and entertainment offer in big cities has given rise to a proliferation of gaming premises, known as "Urban Casinos." An example of these is the recently inaugurated Casino Cirsa Valencia, on Avenida de las Cortes Valencianas, one of the most modern areas in the city. The stunning 4,000 square-metre building has become one of the leisure hotspots in the city.
With capacity for more than 1,500 people, the premises include a two storey car-park, and three further storeys housing the Poker Room, the slot machine area, the bar and restaurant area and, lastly, the area for the game tables, offering roulettes, five-card draw poker, and baccarat, in addition to a terrace bar. The entire premises have been equipped to the highest standards, including D.A.S. sound systems.
The sound system project and supply was provided by the local company Telesonic Valencia, who selected D.A.S. Audio´s Artec and Avant Series systems for installation in the different areas, depending on the characteristics and uses of each area.
The Poker Room is an area with card game tables, designed to host tournaments with more than 200 participants. To achieve a high-quality musical ambience in this area, a total of six D.A.S. Artec 26W systems were installed. These systems, with white enclosures matching the room´s exquisite decoration, receive the corresponding signal amplification via two D.A.S. SLA-2600 amplifiers with switched-mode power supply.
Self-powered D.A.S. Avant systems have been used to provide the sound in a truly interesting space within the Casino: a floating stage halfway between the ground and first floors, which is accessible from the hall. It is used to stage live piano and instrumental music performances, providing the ambient music for the building´s main entrance as well as for the slot machine area and the exclusive restaurant.
This stage has been equipped with four D.A.S. Avant 15A self-powered systems and one D.A.S. LX-212 subwoofer system, which reinforces low frequencies when the performance calls for it. A D.A.S. DSP-48 4 input digital processor is used to manage the signal in this area.
The two-Michelin starred restaurant, One VLC, headed up by chef Rafa Morales, gives an idea of the exclusivity and success of Casino Cirsa Valencia, which boasts 130 latest generation slot machines and has a staff of 250 people. In its first year in operation, the casino aims to establish itself as the third casino in Spain in terms of volume of visitors.
