Rosso Restaurant

Deliciously clear sound for diners

Discreet, delightful sound installation for Manchester’s stunning grade-II listed Italian restaurant.

Neuron has been the audio-visual provider to one of Manchester’s most iconic and prestigious restaurants for nearly a decade. Alongside a high-specification zoned audio installation, we have supported a range of corporate events and private parties. We have even been privileged to share in Rio Ferdinand’s Manchester United celebrations!

Our unique commissioning process allowed us to set variable volume levels and sound tuning in each area of the restaurant. Our dedication to measurement and data-driven design ensures that guests can enjoy the carefully curated music playlists while engaging in uninterrupted conversation.

We chose a BSS SoundWeb London BLU-160 configurable I/O processor plus custom-built BLU-10 touchscreen wall panel, allowing for maximum flexibility and future-proofing. Management can easily select source material and control volume levels. We also provided custom presets for a smooth transition from laid-back dining to pumping Friday night DJ parties, all selectable from our intuitive custom menu interface.

Our audio design uses revolutionary Danley Sound labs point source technology. We reduced the number of cabinets used from 24 speakers to just nine – dramatically improving the aesthetics of this stunning grade-II listed building.

Neuron is evidence that commitment to hard work, passion, dedication and expertise in your field means you can succeed. I never have any doubt that the support or guidance given will not be of the finest quality and delivered in the highest professional and timely manner. No problem or task is too big or small and always embraced with enthusiasm and joy for what they do. I have no hesitations or reservations in recommending them to anyone. Sasha Svatek / Rosso

The venue benefits from increased efficiency and lower operating costs alongside dramatically improved sound quality and clarity across the entire site.

All cabinets are finished in custom alabaster-white so that they match the surface of the walls perfectly. We secreted a single subwoofer inside a custom-built cabinet, fronted with a matching brass grille.

Our in-house design team also provided a one-of-a-kind, dark oak veneer cabinet to ensure that the DJ equipment remains invisible until it is required.

Finishing touches come in the form of a full live-music production package. We included microphones, a sound-mixing console plus in-ear monitoring systems to ensure silky smooth performance from the rotating roster of musicians. We also provided a custom CBurn streaming playlist computer system, after consultation with Rosso’s management. These carefully-curated background music playlists ensure consistently, on-brand quality throughout the week.

With more control and flexibility placed into the hands of its owners, the result is a venue that has a beautiful, easy-to-use system that offers more even and consistent sound response. Happier staff, happier guests, and a better experience all-round!
