Hungarian rental and installation company, G-Sound, was founded in 2014 by József Gricz, an experienced engineer who previously worked for the country’s National Radio. G-Sound offers solutions for high-profile events and technical support for sports complexes. Recently, the company decided to add L-Acoustics K Series to its inventory, elevating its own standing within the Hungarian market and strengthening the country’s K2 alliance.
The system was supplied by Audmax, an L-Acoustics Certified Provider Distributor for Hungary, whose CEO, Krisztian Varga, recalls G-Sound’s decision process for choosing K2. “In 2019, József was looking to take the next step in event technology and started to dive into the L-Acoustics world,” Varga says. “In December of that year, I offered him a visit to the L-Acoustics corporate office in Marcoussis. Both József and his system engineer Zsolt Balogh were impressed with what they saw. We spent a fantastic day with sales manager Florian Kunz and application engineer Willi Klein, who organised an open-air K2 demo for us.”
Even though Gricz was now firmly set on investing in K2, the investment was delayed by the pandemic. But Audmax and G-Sound persisted, despite the setback, and the purchase was finalized in late 2020. “We knew that adding L-Acoustics to our inventory would make a significant difference to our business and the adverse situation in 2020 was only a short-term hurdle,” says Gricz. “As the industry slowly returns to better times, it’s even more important for us to be ready to offer the best sound experience to our clients and partners. We are hopeful that the summer season will offer us moments to show what our new K2 system can do.”
G-Sound’s brand-new K2 system is based on the KX standard and comprises 36 K2, 12 K1-SB, and 24 KS28, plus an additional 18 Kara II. All amplified controllers are LA-RAK II AVB, which fits perfectly with G-Sound’s optical backbone cabling system.
As the industry ramps back up, Gricz has ambitious plans to invest further. “We’d like to add L-Acoustics stage monitors and fill systems to our inventory,” he explains. “We also feel that the unique, corporate-event friendly Syva would be a great tool for us,” he adds.
Varga continues to work closely with G-Sound, offering daily support. The crew successfully completed the System Fundamentals training, a one-week online course, and are looking forward to hosting L-Acoustics Willi Klein for a hands-on session as soon as conditions allow.
“We are delighted to welcome G-Sound to the L-Acoustics family,” concludes Varga. “With their significant addition to the systems already owned by Klemm-Concert and Soul-Light, we are looking forward to a strong K2 alliance in Hungary.”
