"SAGA: Cuisines of India" Installs State-of-The-Art HARMAN Professional Audio and Lighting Solutions



Crescendo AV equipped SAGA with Martin lighting and JBL Professional loudspeakers solutions.


Crescendo AV recently equipped "SAGA: Cuisines of India" with futuristic HARMAN Professional audio and lighting solutions to provide a memorable experience for dining and entertainment at the ambitious new restaurant and bar.

Created by restaurateur Vishal Anand, "SAGA: Cuisines of India" is a spacious, elegant dining destination with a food and beverage menu curated by twice-Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar. The 200-capacity venue features a 51-foot ceiling, one of the world’s tallest bar displays and a stage for live performances that can accommodate anything from a DJ to a six-piece band. To provide high-quality sound and dynamic lighting in the unique space, Crescendo AV outfitted SAGA with JBL Professional loudspeakers, Crown amplifiers, BSS signal processors, AKG microphones and Martin Professional lighting fixtures. 

“SAGA was a really unique install in every sense,” said Vineet Wadhwani, Managing Partner, Crescendo AV. “It was definitely exciting to be a part of the journey from concept to installation. The 51-foot ceiling height and being located in the midst of corporate offices, an upcoming hospital and a residential complex all posed challenges in terms of the acoustics and overall audio set-up, but we were able to achieve the desired result using a combination of appropriate soundproofing, acoustic treatment and setting the right dispersion angles for the speakers.”

Crescendo AV outfitted SAGA with a variety of JBL Professional loudspeakers for premium sound throughout the venue. JBL VTX A8 loudspeakers and B18 subwoofers provide main sound reinforcement for the stage, delivering high-output, full-range sound with comprehensive coverage in a compact and lightweight package. JBL AC18/95 compact loudspeakers and ASB6118 high-powered subwoofers provide additional sound reinforcement, while PRX812 floor monitors with Wi-Fi allow the performers onstage to hear themselves clearly. In outdoor areas, JBL Control 29AV-1 indoor/outdoor monitors and Control 85M mushroom landscape speakers deliver crystal-clear audio with enhanced durability and weather-resistant construction. 


Crescendo AV provides versatile illumination and intimate dining experience with Harman Professional solution.


To power the system and provide flexible signal routing and control capabilities, Crescendo AV equipped SAGA with Crown and BSS networked audio solutions. Crown I-Tech 4X3500HDS, XTi 6002 and XTi 2002 amplifiers deliver crystal-clear sound and feature HiQnet System Architect software for remote network control of levels, signal processing and more. BSS BLU-100 signal processors provide high-bandwidth digital audio networking, while EC-8BV Ethernet controllers provide simple, intuitive control for staff. Additionally, Crescendo AV provided SAGA with WMS40 wireless vocal microphone sets and AKG D5S dynamic microphones to capture high-quality sound on stage. 

To provide versatile illumination for intimate dining, live performances and high-energy DJ nights, Crescendo AV equipped SAGA with a range of Martin lighting solutions. Martin RUSH MH 5 Profile and MH 11 Beam moving-head fixtures provide bright, crisp spot lighting and unique gobo effects. Martin RUSH PAR 2 RGBW Zoom fixtures deliver rich, colorful wash lighting and RUSH PAR 2 CT Zoom fixtures provide general-purpose white illumination from 2700 to 7800 degrees Kelvin. Martin DMX 5.3 splitters provide reliable data connectivity over long cable runs, seamlessly connecting the lighting rig. For dramatic haze effects, Crescendo AV provided SAGA with a Martin JEM compact hazer and JEM C-Plus haze fluid.

“Crescendo AV has done outstanding work in executing the complete installation,” said Vishal Anand, Founder, Moonshine Food Ventures. “They have done an exceptional job commissioning audio and lighting for SAGA and allowed me to present an unforgettable experience to my guests. I must make a notable mention of the HARMAN Application Engineering team and their contribution as well. This install is a result of their hard work and dedication.” 

“Venues like SAGA: Cuisines of India require audio and lighting solutions that can deliver a unique nightlife experience for their visitors,” said Aditya Todi, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing, HARMAN Professional Solutions, India and SAARC. “SAGA is the first permanent install in India to have the JBL Professional VTX A8 and VTX B18 line array loudspeakers and we would like to thank Crescendo AV for designing and delivering robust audio and lighting solutions that are sure to elevate visitor experience at the venue.”
