“This club raises the standard for Bangkok’s fast-paced entertainment industry. When you f rst encounter the sound system in the main room, you are blown away by the physical power, but the real beauty is its f nesse. Even at maximum 120 dB output you can still hold a conversation - which is a sign of the low distortion and the headroom built into the design. What you have is a very high f delity club experience - a big hi-f set with massive bass.” Kenny Jackel of Bangkok-based Satellite Pro A/V (Mondo*dr May/June 2002)
