Beauty & Essex

Beauty & Essex is a pawn shop-themed concept restaurant located right off the Las Vegas Boulevard at The Cosmopolitan created by TAO Group and acclaimed chef personality and restaurateur Chris Santos. The client prioritized great quality sound from discreet, unobtrusive speakers, understanding just how critical the audio system is to their success. TAO Group called in Anthem Productions to provide a system that sounds amazing at both low volumes for dining and at high volumes for dancing and take carefully consider the reliability of the equipment. 

Anthem co-owner and project supervisor Angelo Poulos and Jospeh Lodi, other Anthem co-owner and systems engineer, designed a system comprised of 10 Python-KP102 loudspeakers, 8 Kobra-KK102 loudspeakers, 18 Thunder-KMT12P passive subs and 19 Tornado-KT2C ceiling-mounted point sources powered by 6 x Kommander-KA84 amps and one Kommander-KA24 amp and were installed throughout the restaurant, bar and retail store.

K array was our answer. Not only did it do its job extremely well, meeting all sound requirements, it also blended into its surroundings like no other. We simply do not believe there is another speaker system that compares to K-array in these applications. We achieved studio quality sound that can get inconceivably loud with ease. With proprietary details both from the engineers at K-array and the team at Anthem the finished product is simply unmatched. The owners of the TAO Group trusted us to come through and with the help of K-array we achieved beyond what anyone could have imagined.
