Plus 4 Audio brings  APG Uniline to UKUniline saw its first major event for Plus 4 Audio on the main stage of the MAD About Waddesdon festival
UK - Plus 4 Audio has just invested in a sizeable Uniline modular line array system from French manufacturer, APG. Operating out of Surbiton in Surrey, Plus 4 Audio serves the London Studios, Fountain Studios, Maidstone Studios and the BBC as well as various OB events with shows such as the Mercury Music Prize, Strictly Come Dancing, Sports Personality of the Year and new for 2012, The Voice, to name but a few. The Uniline system, which is the first of its kind in the UK, adds to Plus 4's existing APG inventory of DX12 compact monitor speakers purchased in September 2010.

Plus 4's Stewart Chaney reports, "I've been looking at Uniline for a while now, and have always been attracted to its power-to-size ratio, which is very important in a TV studio environment. However, when APG launched the UL210D down-fill element, which is actually a system in its own right, I started to believe that Uniline would be an extremely interesting addition to my rental stock.

"I was finally convinced by a trip to Paris where TV rental specialists, Silence had deployed a Uniline system for the French version of The Voice. I was extremely impressed by the way in which the Uniline system adapted to all of the constraints thrown up by working in a TV studio and yet still sounded great.

"It has everything I'm looking for," continued Chaney. "It's powerful, light weight, easy to set up, and most importantly, the modular nature of the system means that I can configure it however I like according to the requirements of the show. It will handle big outdoor shows just as easily as small, intimate gigs, so it really is an ideal system for our rental market and the guys at APG have been great, and with some excellent support."

Plus 4 Audio's system comprises 16 x UL210 two-way active line array loudspeakers; eight UL210D downfill speakers; 16 x TBS118S single 18" subs; 8 x UL115B bass loudspeakers and four DMS26 digital loudspeaker processors.

Uniline saw its first major event for Plus 4 Audio last weekend where it was deployed for the main stage of the MAD About Waddesdon festival, now in its sixth year at the glorious Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire.

Stewart Chaney confirmed that the entire event went without a hitch, and that the new Uniline system was well received. "It covered the site extremely well and sounded good," he remarked. "We were all extremely impressed with its throw capability. Its size is really quite deceiving; I'd definitely consider using it for some of our arena shows under the right circumstances. There's a lot more under the bonnet that you might think."
