Venezuelan Symphony Hall Installs Millennia HV-3D Mic PresFacility in Caracas outfitted with 80 preamp channels (March 16, 2005)
The Venezuelan National Orchestra (La Orquesta Sinfonica de Venezuela) has installed 80 channels of Millennia HV-3D microphone preamplifiers into the new Venezuelan Symphony Hall and Performing Arts Center in Caracas. Millennia HV-3 micamps were chosen as the orchestras exclusive front-end for commercial recordings, broadcast, film scoring, and archival.
Sergio Prado, Director of Audio Engineering for the new hall, comments ?We are mainly focused on symphonic recordings, thus we have chosen audio recording equipment that captures the most natural sound of instruments and hall. Millennias HV-3D is the new standard for this job.
The new symphony hall offers 11,000 square meters of floor space, including general rehearsal halls with variable reverb and resonance chambers, 11 sectional rehearsal rooms, 24 piano rehearsal rooms, 25 doubles rehearsal rooms, 25 individual rehearsal rooms, one percussion rehearsal room, three amphitheater halls, six musical theory rooms, one youth workshop, one luthier workshop and central audio/video facilities which tie all rooms together.
As a classical music recording company founded in the 1980s, Millennia Music & Media Systems has grown to become one of the worlds respected manufacturers of critical audio recording products. Early in our history, it began designing front-end analog recording equipment to improve the sonic quality of our work. Word spread and, before long, audio engineers worldwide were ordering hand-built gear, and waiting months to get it. Fortunately, todays wait is not as long.
With over 20,000 HV-3 microphone preamplifier channels installed, Millennia continues to set sonic precedent in solid-state and vacuum tube preamps, equalizers, compressors, mixers, and recording channels. With numerous industry awards, seven TEC Award nominations, six PAR Excellence and Reviewers Pick awards, EQ Magazines Blue Ribbon Award, and two Class A awarded products on Stereophile Magazines Recommended Products guide, an extensive owners register of leading audio professionals (see Key User List at http://www.mil-media.com), and a reputation for musical realism second to none, Millenia believes there isn't a more transparent range of professional audio products anywhere, at any price.
TD-1s HV-3 microphone preamplifier is the identical HV-3 preamplifier used for recording well over half of all Hollywood feature films scores (Titanic, Star Wars I and 2, Tarzan, Forrest Gump, National Treasure, Contact, AI, Armageddon, etc.). Leading acoustic recording companies, such as Telarc, Sony Classical, Harmonia Mundi, DMP, Nimbus, Chesky, BMG, Skywalker, and scores of others rely on HV-3 preamplifiers. The major symphony orchestras and operas of the world, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Berlin, Cleveland, Seattle, La Scala, Israel, Prague, Baltimore, New York, and National (DC), employ HV-3 mic preamps. Top live performers like Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Andreas Bocelli, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, Blue Man Group, and The Three Tenors use hundreds of HV-3 preamp channels in concert, as do the Academy Awards and Grammy Awards live broadcsts.
Modern professional recording products are major investments which must be carefully designed for longevity and non-obsolescence. With mastering-grade sonics and specifications, military build quality, and a pedigree in the highest tradition of audio excellence, the HV-3 is destined to remain contemporary well into the new millennium. Hence, Millennia Music & Media Systems.
