Lawo stars at Suzhou Folk Orchestra Concert Hall

Tue 12, 11 2019

Solid German engineering and innovative state-of-the-art IP technology are behind the Suzhou Municipal Government’s selection of a Lawo mc²36 mixing desk and three Compact I/O stageboxes for the Suzhou Folk Orchestra’s new Concert Hall.

With a reputation for quality earned though their use by prestigious theaters, concert halls and broadcasters, the Lawo systems were installed by Chinese partner SWS, who acted as the main contractor for the new facility in Suzhou, close to Shanghai, handling the system integration and infrastructure design.

The choice of the Lawo systems alongside d&b audiotechnik loudspeakers and amplifiers gives the installation a strong German sound, as well as an assurance of quality. It is also the first installation of a Lawo mc²36 audio mixing console in a concert hall in China. The 40-fader, 192-crosspoint and 192-DSP-channel console with three Lawo Compact I/O stageboxes is accompanied by Waves SoundGrid integration.

Lawo has established a very strong reputation among Chinese prestige theaters, beginning in 2006 with systems installed in the National Grand Theatre (China National Center for Performing Arts), followed later by the Dongguan Theater, Wuhan Qintai Theater, Chongqing Theater, Jinan Grand Theater, Shenyang Grand Theater, Zhuhai Theater and several others. All of these high-end theaters have chosen Lawo as their preferred FOH audio mixing system.

“It is an honor for us to join the Lawo customer theater community,” commented one of the Suzhou Orchestra Concert Hall sound engineers.
