San Matias is located in Aluche, one of the most popular neighbourhoods in Madrid.
San Matias serves a variety of beers and wines with high quality tapas and pinchos with authentic, traditional flavours. The restaurant has recently been renovated, including the installation of a new Yamaha background music system that matches the quality of its food and drink.
San Matías was established in 1966 and current owner Luis Mardomingo prides himself on combining the best food and drink with outstanding customer service. When he planned the renovation, installing very high-quality background music was a priority. He spoke to specialist AV systems integrator Audio Electrónica Sistemas S.L. (AES).
“The elegance of an environment depends on more than decoration and lighting. Sound also plays a critical role,” says AES CEO Carlos del Campo. “This is why we opted for a Yamaha solution”
Carlos and his team designed and installed a system of visually discreet VXS1ML speakers and a VXS3S subwoofer. The small size of the white speakers ensures that they almost disappear against the décor, but deliver a very natural sound with uniform coverage throughout both the bar and dining areas.
To ensure the music source was up to date with the latest with technology and functionality, AES chose Yamaha’s MusicCast WXA-50 digital streaming amplifier. Featuring state-of-the-art wireless streaming and powerful, high quality amplification, its compact size also aided discreet integration with the San Matías décor.
Luis was surprised that he could manage the entire audio system using only Yamaha’s MusicCast CONTROLLER app on a tablet. This includes access to a wide variety of audio content, such as music stored on the tablet or from streaming services, as well as the system settings.
“Satisfying clients and exceeding their expectations are great reasons to continue bettering ourselves with the A/V systems we provide. Once again, Yamaha's technology and reliability have demonstrated that it is a leader in the audio industry, helping us to deliver solutions that customers love.”
