— Nocturnal in Miami has multiple E45 amplifiers powering
its three levels and rooftop garden —

119th AES CONVENTION, NEW YORK, NY, October 7, 2005 — Two leading edge clubs have recently set new standards in sound system design and performance. Both Nocturnal, a new three-story club that literally adds to the South Beach skyline, and Masque, Dayton’s most technologically advanced dance club, rely on MC2 Audio Ltd.’s incredible E45 switchmode amplifier for consistently amazing sound.

“Nocturnal is a truly amazing sound system installation in a truly amazing club,” comments Dean McNaughton, Co-owner, with partner Dan Agne, of Sound Investment, the Chicago-based system design and installation company that created the sound systems for both clubs. Nocturnal features 8 MC2 E45 amplifiers powering a massive Funktion-One sound system. “They wanted the best sound system in Miami, and they got it,” says McNaughton, noting that the power from the E45 amplifiers easily covers all three levels and the rooftop garden at Nocturnal. “Considering the lengths to which they were willing to go with this multi-million dollar club, the E45 was the only real choice.”

Masque, in Dayton, Ohio, opened in late 2004 and has since set the standard for clubs in the region. The mid-sized nightclub had a requirement for high output and absolutely no distortion. “The sound system had to match the lighting and design of this place, which is as good as anything you’ll see on the coasts or even in Europe,” remarks McNaughton. “This is a world-class club and it has world-class sound, powered by the E45.”

The MC2 Audio E45 is a lightweight, switchmode amplifier designed to the same high standards of reliability and sound quality that users have come to expect of all MC2 Audio products. The switchmode power supply is capable of delivering high peaks with no perceptible bass “sag” and very low distortion. The new sophisticated MC2 “intelligent” limiter keeps performance within safe operating limits. Features include low distortion limiters with adjustable threshold points for extra speaker protection and Power Reduction Circuit (PRC) controls on rear panel, linked to the limiter threshold, allowing each channel to be independently set so different loudspeakers can be connected to each channel with safety.
