Hotel AV Systems | LEA Powers a 5-star Resort in France

Hotel AV Systems | LEA Install At Domaine de Mas de Pierre

Hotel AV systems can become very complex. With several zones spanning a large complex that ranges in power requirements from Low-Z to High-Z and a mixture of both. But with proper planning and the right equipment, these systems can achieve a 5-star guest experience.

We are very excited to introduce the latest LEA install project at Domiane de Mas de Pierre — a newly refurbished, five-star hotel and resort in France.

This is no ordinary hotel install, this resort is set amidst the lush, green rolling hills along the Mediterranean coast in Saint-Paul de Vence. Guest will find themselves in the heart of a beautiful 20-acre garden with nine authentic, Provencal country houses with 76 suites and a selection of luxurious restaurants, bars, a spa, and several indoor and outdoor meeting spaces.

And with all that space, the hotel needed a flexible and powerful amplifier solution. That’s where our CONNECTSERIES came in.

In the hinterland of Provence, near the ramparts of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, a jewel of the independent French family hotel group SFH, the hotel Le Domaine du Mas de Pierre is writing the next great chapter of its history.

15 years after its opening, the 5* hotel, member of Relais & Châteaux, is reinventing itself around a new identity: Domaine du Mas de Pierre.

After a year and a half of extensive restoration work, a new relaxed and friendly luxurious resort invites itself in the heart of a gorgeous 8-hectare garden.

Now open year-round, Domaine du Mas de Pierre reveals its new facilities.

The 76 rooms and suites, entirely revamped in 2021, all have a private outdoor area and are distributed among nine authentic Provençal bastides.

Inovasystem has provided AV design, installation, and maintenance solutions across the French Riviera for more than 15 years. Many of the region’s top resorts, hotels, and business centers are among Inovasystem’s list of clients.

 

THE INSTALL

Inovasystem turned to the team at Pilotefilms, LEA’s Authorized Distributor in France, who recommended the LEA Professional amplifiers. Philippe Pangallo, a Managing Partner at Inovasystem, was the lead engineer for the Domaine de Mas de Pierre project.

The most complicated part of this installation was that the existing network and wiring configuration had a mix of VLANs and Wi-Fi networks, as well as CCTV and hard-wire systems,” said Pangallo. “So, we needed components that were very installation flexible that we could configure as needed. The LEA amplifiers offered the Dante connectivity as well as a range of analog options that we needed.

Pangallo explained that a mix of more than 150 Sonance loudspeakers have been installed throughout the resort, covering a diverse range of spaces, including the gastropub restaurant and bar, a grill restaurant, the hotel lobby, spa and pool areas, fitness centers, guest cabins and more.

For system amplification, the team installed a set of 10 multi-channel, LEA Professional Connect Series amplifiers for a total of 48 audio channels. Several of the amplifiers are Dante ready, with some of the amps driving 100V speaker lines, and others powering low impedance speakers. Flexibility was essential for this installation.

Specific LEA Professional amplifiers in use, for reference:

CS354, CS164, CS352, CS88, CS164D, CS704D, CS354D, CS352D, CS168D, CS88D

In total, Inovasystem designed and installed the resort’s complete AV system, including digital signage, televisions, big screens, and the satellite reception and Chromecast systems.

THE CONCLUSION

The customer is delighted with their system, and everything is going well,” added Pangallo. “I’m glad that we specified LEA. The amps are performing as planned, and we are very pleased. We look forward to more LEA installations!.

We’d like to thank Philippe Pangallo and his team at Inoasystem for choosing our amps for this killer installation and we hope that the audio systems will continue to deliver reliable audio to hotel guests for years to come.
