The Best Western Plus hotel in Indore, central India, offers state-of-the-art accommodation and services for both business and leisure travellers. In its restaurant and bar areas, a Yamaha audio system provides both soothing background music, creating a comfortable atmosphere for travellers, as well as high quality sound reinforcement for live entertainment.


The hotel management wanted a visually discreet audio solution, which would match the interior but with no compromise on sound quality. Delivering high quality background music, the ability to also handle events like parties and smaller live performances would allow the hotel to expand the use of the restaurant space. An important factor was that, with the bar area being glass-fronted, here an alternative was needed to wall-mounted speakers.

Vinayak Luthra of Indore-based Audiocratz Sound & Light Solutions was commissioned to design and supply the system. After auditioning speakers from several manufacturers and considering various designs to ensure the system would not intrude on the aesthetics of the space, he chose a Yamaha solution.


Four VXS8 two-way, surface-mount speakers, driven by a PX3 amplifier, were installed in the restaurant for background music. In addition, sound reinforcement for live performances was catered for by DHR12M, two-way bi-amped loudspeakers and DXS18-XLF powered subwoofers, with mixing for performers on an MG10XU mixing console. Audio for live events is also routed through the VXS8s.

In the bar area, Yamaha's new VXH series pendant speakers were the ideal solution, thanks to their audio quality, volume and ease of installation. The VXH8 two-way speakers were installed, along with VXS3F compact, full-range surface mount units and an NS-SW300 powered subwoofer. This system provided the necessary volume and sound quality to provide a pleasant atmosphere, without interrupting the conversation of guests.

Mahendra Singh Rajput, the hotel manager, says "The solution provided by Yamaha and Audiocratz has completely lived up to my expectations. The speakers blend well with the hotel's aesthetics and the amazing sound quality really enhances the customer experience."
