Review of Meyer Sound System at Kansas Cinetopia: “I Could Make Out the Drops, Not Just a Swoosh”

For its first location outside of the Northwest, the Cinetopia theatre chain has built three massive GXL screens, each equipped with a Meyer Sound cinema system and Dolby Atmos. Named Overland Park 18, this eastern Kansas theatre complex boasts close to 200 Meyer Sound cinema loudspeakers.

“When we played our demo reel, we would hear a gleeful chuckle and hear comments like, ‘I’ve never heard anything like that before,’” says Rudyard Coltman, owner of Cinetopia. “We pride ourselves on the fact that we’ve been told this theatre is 10 to 15 years ahead of the industry in the technology and amenities it offers.”
The local media also noted the life-like detail of the Meyer Sound cinema loudspeakers. “When I heard the rain falling on screen, I could make out the drops, not just a swoosh,” writes Jeneé Osterheldt, lifestyle columnist for The Kansas City Star.

All three GXL rooms feature five Acheron® 100 and five Acheron LF screen channel loudspeakers as well as eight X-800C high-power cinema subwoofers and two 500-HP subwoofers for low-end reinforcement. In addition, the slightly larger Screen 1 utilizes 20 HMS-10 and 18 HMS-12 surround loudspeakers with IntelligentDC technology, while Screens 2 and 3 each deploy 42 HMS-10 and 6 HMS-12 loudspeakers. Each system relies on a Galileo® loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 616 processor for drive and optimization.

“Meyer Sound is a core component of our GXL concept,” states Coltman. “Other cinemas offer their brand for a premium, large-scale format, but GXL stands apart in all respects, including sound. It’s a no-compromise approach, and Meyer Sound is an integral part of it.”

In addition to the Meyer Sound implementation of Dolby Atmos, Cinetopia’s GXL rooms offer giant screens up to 75 feet wide and four stories high, 4K digital projection, and steeply raked coliseum seating with high-backed reclining seats.

Meyer Sound cinema systems are also installed at Cinetopia locations Progress Ridge 14 in Beaverton, Ore. and Washington state’s Vancouver Mall 23, which features Dolby Atmos. According to Coltman, Cinetopia will continue its national expansion, with its next luxury complex slated to open in the Dallas suburb of Lewisville. “Meyer Sound is ingrained in the GXL brand, so it’s part of what people identify as the unique experience found only in our theatres,” says Coltman.

Built for linear reproduction, Meyer Sound cinema systems are ideally suited for immersive formats like Dolby Atmos as the loudspeakers faithfully reproduce soundtracks with greater headroom, lower distortion, and superior uniformity. IntelligentDC™ technology is available in all Meyer Sound surround models to offer the advantages of self-powered, bi-amplified systems.
