Midas on the money at Casino du Liban

Casino du Liban's chief sound engineer Tony Khoury with Midas PRO6

18 May 2012

Lebanon - Two Midas PRO6 live audio systems supplied by Midas distributor of the year, Dubai-based NMK Electronics, have been installed in one of the Middle East's premier casinos, Jounieh's Casino du Liban, bringing the venue's total PRO6 count to three.

Tony Khoury, the casino's chief sound engineer since 1996, took delivery of his first PRO6 system in 2009 for the 1,800-capacity theatre space. "I chose the PRO6 then because I couldn't find the right warmth of sound in any other digital desk," says Khoury. "The Midas pre amps in the PRO6 provide really effective power and quality. I also found the PRO6 so easy to use; you can get to any zone really fast - it feels like I am working on one of the MIDAS analogue consoles, like a Heritage 3000."

Khoury was so delighted with the performance of his first PRO6 that when it came to upgrading the sound system in the casino's dining and entertainment space, the 600-capacity La Salle Des Ambassadeurs, there was only one choice for him.

La Salle Des Ambassadeurs now boasts two PRO6 systems, one FOH and one on monitors. A DL431 mic splitter has been added to the monitor system while both monitor and FOH consoles have DSP engines, DL252 digital snakes to optimise mic audio and a DL451 audio system modular I/O with both analogue and digital cards to maximise flexibility.

"Having had the PRO6 in the theatre for three years, I insisted on Midas again," says Khoury. "I am very satisfied with the PRO6 and I am happy to be the only sound engineer in Lebanon to have three in one place."

Says Chicco Hiranandani, NMK business development manager, "I had a great time working together with Tony on the recent upgrade of the Salle des Ambassadors at the casino. It is always enjoyable working with individuals who share the same kind of intensity or passion for what they do. I am sure that patrons of the casino will experience a spectacular show or event with the new equipment at the venue."

Midas brand development manager Richard Ferriday adds, "We are delighted that Casino Du Liban are continuing their investment in Midas, and our new competitive pricing now makes that even easier. Another important consideration is that the PR06 is a modular, upgradable system, which means that the casino has the option to upgrade to full 88 input PR09 capacity if their requirements increase in the future."
