Historic, newly renovated Miami Horse Racing Track and Casino relies on Lab.gruppen

55 C Series amplifiers handle a superior audio

Choosing Lab.gruppen amplifiers for Miami’s Hialeah Park Raceway and Casino was based on a wealth of past experience with , says Dave Stearns of Dallas Texas-based, Marsh/PMK International LLC - the new incarnation of Pelton Marsh Kinsella (PMK). 

Originally constructed in 1932, the world class horseracing venue attracted celebrities like Frank Sinatra, Harry Truman and Winston Churchill, and, owing to its classic Spanish décor and singular atmosphere, was also was tapped as the setting for many scenes in major Hollywood films such as The Godfather: Part II.

After a series of troubles, Hialeah Park closed its doors to the public in 2001, but it has been undergoing renovations and was re-launched as Hialeah Park Racing and Casino in late 2013. Although it retains the classic architectural motifs that charmed patrons in its early days, the facility now boasts 150,000 square-feet of casino floor, multiple restaurants and bars and state-of-the-art AV systems including distributed audio that provides highly intelligible background music and paging 24/7.

The Tannoy loudspeakers are powered by approximately 55 Lab.gruppen Contractor Series amplifiers with NomadLink monitoring and control; a mix of 4-channel amps running voice coil to the subs and 8-channel amps for the 70-Volt systems. DSP is provided via 22 Symetrix SymNet Edge Dante networked audio DSPs with a total of 300 outputs. “Given the sheer number of channels, Lab.gruppen was an obvious amplifier choice,” Marsh says. “When we have a lot of channels we like Lab.gruppen because they’re compact and reliable. The speaker system on this project wasn’t all 70-Volt lines where you can string 30 speakers together, so we had to come up with an amplification package that wouldn’t take up too much rack space.” In the end, the audio system design using Tannoy and Lab.gruppen gave Hialeah Park a unique and cost effective solution that provides quality, clarity and highly intelligible audio both inside and outside the new casino.
