Harman Professional provides audio and lighting solutions for Saga: Cuisines of India


Crescendo AV has equipped restaurateur Vishal Anand’s Saga: Cuisines of India with Harman Professional audio and lighting solutions including JBL Professional loudspeakers, Crown amplifiers, BSS signal processors, AKG microphones and Martin Professional lighting fixtures.

The 200-capacity venue, headlined by  twice-Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar, features a 51-foot ceiling, one of the world’s tallest bar displays and a stage for live performances that can accommodate anything from a DJ to a six-piece band.

“Saga was a really unique install in every sense,” said Vineet Wadhwani, managing partner, Crescendo AV. “It was definitely exciting to be a part of the journey from concept to installation. The 51-foot ceiling height and being located in the midst of corporate offices, an upcoming hospital and a residential complex all posed challenges in terms of the acoustics and overall audio setup, but we were able to achieve the desired result using a combination of appropriate soundproofing, acoustic treatment and setting the right dispersion angles for the speakers.”

JBL VTX A8 loudspeakers and B18 subwoofers provide main sound reinforcement for the stage, while JBL AC18/95 compact loudspeakers and ASB6118 high-powered subwoofers provide additional sound reinforcement, with PRX812 floor monitors for performers onstage. In outdoor areas, JBL Control 29AV-1 indoor/outdoor monitors and Control 85M mushroom landscape speakers have been deployed.

To power the system and provide flexible signal routing and control capabilities, Crescendo AV equipped SAGA with Crown and BSS networked audio solutions. Crown I-Tech 4X3500HDS, XTi 6002 and XTi 2002 amplifiers featuring HiQnet System Architect software for remote network control of levels and signal processing power the system, with BSS BLU-100 signal processors providing high-bandwidth digital audio networking, and EC-8BV Ethernet controllers for staff operation. Crescendo AV also provided Saga with WMS40 wireless vocal microphone sets and AKG D5S dynamic microphones for live performances.

To provide versatile illumination for intimate dining, live performances and high-energy DJ nights, Crescendo AV equipped SAGA with a range of Martin lighting solutions including Rush MH 5 Profile, MH 11 Beam moving-head, Rush PAR 2 RGBW Zoom and Rush PAR 2 CT Zoom fixtures installed throughout the restaurant, with Martin DMX 5.3 splitters providing data connectivity over long cable runs. A Martin JEM compact hazer and JEM C-Plus haze fluid have also been provided.

“Crescendo AV has done outstanding work in executing the complete installation,” said Vishal Anand, founder, Moonshine Food Ventures. “They have done an exceptional job commissioning audio and lighting for Saga and allowed me to present an unforgettable experience to my guests.”
