The Netherlands - Established in 2000, YoungCapital is a recruitment agency for young people based in 35 locations, including two in Germany.
The company’s HQ on Hoofddorp has been recently completely updated and now features a Yamaha networked audio system.
The refurbishment project started in 2018 and included renovating and redecorating the spaces, whilst the audio system was also renewed. The system had to cover the reception area, restaurant, a hall/meeting space, an ‘urban’ environment (with moveable walls to create one large room, two medium rooms or four small ones), a gym, outside terrace and nine restroom areas.
YoungCapital’s IT project manager, Elwin van de Beek, contacted Ruben Haringsma of Soest-based installation company HiFi Choice to discuss the company’s needs. These included online streaming music sources, local inputs at various locations, ease of use and the ability to easily expand the system for new applications.
Ruben designed a zoned system around the Yamaha MRX7-D matrix processor, amplifiers, speakers and a Dante network, which would make it possible to easily expand with additional hardware. Because the building is in use during the week, Ruben could only install equipment at weekends. He found that new ideas and applications were regularly being requested, meaning he had to expand the system even while installing it.
Three remotely-controlled WXAD-10 wireless streaming adaptors feed music to every zone, with a fourth unit feeding only the gym. Here a WiFi access point allows users to choose their own selection of music.
“It’s a very versatile system, able to deliver a range of source audio and the full dynamic range of the EDM favoured by many of YoungCapital’s staff and clients to any area, including the outside terrace,” says Ruben.
