July 12, 2012 Extron Electronics-a professional A/V system integration products

manufacturer-sought out superior sound for The Ranch Restaurant & Saloon,
located on the ground floor of its new corporate headquarters in Anaheim,
Calif. Andrew Edwards, Extron's president and owner, chose a Meyer Sound
system centered around MICAR line array loudspeakers.

"With live country music and dancing, true regional American cuisine, and a
world-class wine selection, The Ranch Restaurant & Saloon is the realization
of a longtime dream of mine," Edwards says. "For something so close to my
heart, I insisted on a sound reinforcement system that was second to none.
Meyer Sound has given me just that."

"Andrew's love for country music is really at the base of this," explains
John Fish, consultant applications engineer for Extron. "His passion has
come through in this club like you wouldn't believe. Everything is
top-shelf."

Ian Ingram, president of Santa Ana, Calif.-based Allstage Pro, was
instrumental in the design and completion of The Ranch. "I knew that when we
got larger and larger bands in there, which we're starting to now, they were
going to require a line array," says Ingram. "We came up with MICA."

The saloon at The Ranch boasts a system comprised of 12 MICA line array
loudspeakers, five 700-HP and two 600-HP subwoofers, three UPQ-1P
loudspeakers, four UP-4XP loudspeakers, and two MM-4XP self-powered
loudspeakers. For monitoring, The Ranch features eight UM-1P and two UM-100P
stage monitors, and one UMS-1P subwoofer.

The system employs a Meyer Sound GalileoR loudspeaker management system with
two Galileo 616 processors: "One Galileo is feeding all the Meyer gear,"
Fish says. "One is set up AES digital, and one is analog. That is part of a
full-analog-redundancy component: From mic to speaker, we have a digital
path and an analog path."

The sound reinforcement system in the saloon also includes Yamaha M7CL-48
digital consoles, Shure PSM 900 wireless monitor systems, and microphones
from AKG, Audix, Heil Sound, Neumann, and Sennheiser, among others.

"The system has done exactly what it's supposed to," notes Ingram, whose
Allstage Pro is now a Meyer Sound dealer. "It came out sounding amazing. I
couldn't be happier, and I look forward to a nice, long future as a Meyer
dealer."
