Despite having a population of less than 5000, the North Yorkshire town of Malton enjoys top quality music, comedy and touring theatre shows at its much-loved local venue and community hub The Milton Rooms.

First built in the early 1800s, the venue is now run as a not-for-profit organisation by an active team of volunteers and features a 300-seat main theatre space with a new, world-class NEXO sound system supplied by NEXO distributors A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd, in collaboration with installers North Star Engineers.

After an independent assessment concluded the venue needed expert advice to overcome its poor acoustics, AC-ET calculated the best options for the new sound system using NEXO’s NS-1 acoustic prediction software, which enables users to configure their speaker placement in any venue setup, and then predict the optimal sound coverage for the audience.

To deliver the optimal audio for the space, a NEXO GEO M10 line array system was installed, with NEXO P10 speakers used as delays and a number of NEXO ID speakers deployed as front fills and to feed audio into the venue’s side bar and foyer.

Commenting on behalf of The Milton Rooms, venue Director Oliver Stables said:

“The new audio setup has been a huge success and has made such a difference to the quality of the sound produced for our audiences.

“Every band and artist who has performed at our venue has commented that the standard of this equipment rates with the big arenas they have performed in across the country. High praise indeed.”

AC-ET’s Steve Eaton who planned the audio system said: “Following the initial site visit it was apparent that the NEXO GEO M10 system would be a perfect solution for the venue. This was confirmed by NEXO’s NS-1 software, and The Milton Rooms now has a very enviable sound system.”
