Yamaha Enhances the Sound of Walkerhill Hotel & Resort

The Walkerhill Hotel & Resort boasts one of the best views of South Korea’s capital, Seoul. The management of the hotel and its trio of high-end venues recently returned to its owners, SK Networks, which has made a significant investment in upgrading all three, including the installation of Yamaha audio equipment. The investment has included new conference facilities at Grand Walkerhill Seoul and new audio systems at Aston House and Vista Walkerhill Seoul. SPL Integrated Solutions, Korea, was entrusted with the supply and installation of new AV equipment under the guidance of owner Hwang Jun Ho. “I was familiar with the existing audio systems at the hotel,” he says. “When I was asked to recommend solutions for the upgrades, I suggested Yamaha equipment because I have used and trusted it for many years.” He continues, “It was really important for the quality of the sound to match the sophisticated atmosphere being created at the Vista Walkerhill Seoul and Aston House. In addition, the new conference facility in the Grand Walkerhill Seoul’s ballroom needed a sophisticated audio system, because it can be used as one large space or subdivided into up to six separate rooms. This required the audio system to be extremely versatile and able to be configured accordingly.”

After demonstrating Yamaha solutions to the hotel’s management, Hwang Jun Ho and his team installed Yamaha ceiling  speakers in the public spaces of the Vista Walkerhill Seoul, which blend in tastefully with the contemporary décor. The background music is supplied by a computer-based playback system with sound distributed to the lobby, bar area and VIP lounge, via one the complex’s many Yamaha digital mixers.
