The C.Group in Hasselt, Belgium has opened a new restaurant and bar, “Het Cordaat”. The C. group is the leading corporation behind various restaurants, hotels and events in and around Hasselt. As location for their latest restaurant they have chosen the Corda Campus, the ever-growing hotspot for entrepreneurship in the technology sector.
Informal or business, at Cordaat a wide audience can enjoy a fantastic meal. There is an open kitchen that allows the guests to see the chefs in action while a large, central bar is the centre piece of the restaurant. The restaurant is also equipped with a partly covered terrace that almost all year round can be used. The kitchen is sophisticated with a wide range of specialized wines. The eye-catcher in the kitchen is the Japanese Robata grill which not only looks very spectacular but is also superb in taste.
Belgian AUDAC partner Soundstation installed a full AUDAC installation to provide the guests with suiting background music while enjoying their meals. The dining area is equipped with 16 elegant and easily installable ATEO4 wall speakers to provide a great sound. These ATEO’s are accompanied with 2 NOBA8 bass cabinets. Thanks to their elegant and compact design the installer was able to incorporate these bass cabinets nicely into the interior by installing them against the ceiling. Thanks to the MWX65 all-in-one wall panel the input signals and volume can be controlled in the restaurant.
Outside the restaurant 8 WX502_O outdoor loudspeakers were installed on the terrace. The WX502_O are specially treated for outdoor usage so they can provide excellent sound quality in any kind of weather. During working hours, the kitchen staff can also enjoy music from the 2 WX502 speakers that are installed in the kitchen.
The audio system is built around a MTX48 zone mixer that separates the restaurant in multiple zones and makes sure the speakers produce the right sound where needed. Thanks to the free AUDAC Touch application that works with the MTX48, it’s easier than ever to control the entire audio system. Enough power is guaranteed by a combination of the PMQ480 Quad-channel power amplifier and a SMA500 Dual-channel power amplifier.
The XMP44 professional modular audio system with an IMP40 internet audio player module, guarantees that the system can handle up to 4 different sources. The Linum™ technology will automatically switch to an inserted media carrier (USB drive) to avoid unpleasant silences or timeouts in background music applications if the Internet connection is lost.
