This represents the first facility to provide a comprehensive London demonstration resource for the manufacturer
UK - Orbital Sound has announced that it is opening a new demonstration zone this month, in conjunction with loudspeaker technology company, Flare Audio. Equipped with the growing line up of Flare loudspeaker systems, this represents the first facility to provide a comprehensive London demonstration resource for the manufacturer, as a dedicated centre of excellence.

Orbital Sound's MD Chris Headlam comments, "As Flare's UK & Eire distributor, we can introduce the Flare concept to a much wider audience by setting up this new demonstration centre at our Brixton headquarters - complemented by having an expert technical team on hand in support. With such extraordinarily innovative design as Flare Audio, you need to be able to provide the right environment for people to listen and explore the range in detail.

"We are incredibly excited by what Flare has achieved, to the extent that we are augmenting our rental inventory with three full touring X2A line array systems, combined with Flare's modular X0A infill, surround and delay units, the Q18 high power subs, and the real dark horse in our view - the award-winning SB21 flat panel bass speakers.

Flare Audio CEO, Davies Roberts, adds, "A London-based demo facility is a resource that we have needed for a long time, and with Orbital's investment, it will make a real difference to our ability to demonstrate the range. When you introduce a completely new set of design concepts, it is vital to be able to give people the right environment and technical support to explore the products' potential.

"Flare developed X2A and X0A specifically for use in theatres and venues. Working closely alongside Orbital, the Flare R&D team tweaked the design so that it was perfect for their requirements. Our partnership with Orbital reflects the fact that there is a real synergy between our two companies - in terms of innovative forward thinking, technical excellence and a determination to think outside of the box and provide the market with some exciting alternatives."
