CELTO Acoustique Powers up Thalassa in Goa

From selling Greek rolls at Arpora's flea market to opening her first Greek cuisine restaurant, Thalassa Siolim in the year 2006, Ms Mariketty first came to India with her six-month old Son Spiro, who is one of the star performers at Thalassa. With her instincts of creating magic through her food, Thalassa has been the pioneer in providing world class entertainment with Greek dances and music as one of the key elements of the place. Today Thalassa is for the party goers as much a part of the Goa landscape as Baga beach.

The Thalassa – Siolim install was done in 2019, using the ultra-compact and Co-axial CELTO iFIX8, CT12, powered by VAL GL amplifiers. Key emphasis was to design a system that was punchy, clear yet crisp sounding even at low and normal listening levels of music as the place is not a nightclub.

Vernon Furtado from Sean Enterprises, Panjim, has become the preferred option for pro audio solutions across Goa. With over 10 years of experience in the audio industry Vernon is a Preferred CELTO Rental & Install partner for Goa. Sean Enterprises has executed various installs using CELTO gear such as Favella - Baga, Tataki - Panjim etc, besides using CELTO products in his Rental inventory. Adds Vernon Furtardo, Director Sean Enterprises - “The price-performance ratio which CELTO offers is unbeatable. You are getting a European product designed and manufactured with the highest standards at honest and affordable pricing. I am yet to see this combination anywhere else in the market”.

Thalassa Panjim installed with CELTO iFIX - Fixed install series

Vernon after understanding client needs said “CELTO Acoustique was the only brand that I could think of for the job as it had the right mix of products, which suited the clients’ needs and budget”. Mariketty and Spiro were so delighted with the sound and install they then gave Vernon their next project –Thalassa at Panjim.

What makes it even more special is that the Thalassa- Panjim install was done during the COVID19 pandemic. With yet another restaurant opening in the capital city of Goa, Mariketty was thrilled once again to have Sean Enterprises install CELTO as their preferred sound system to make the venue a stunning place to celebrate electrifying music and life. As expected the musicians and the guests only had praises for the sound. Equipment used in Thalassa Panjim - CELTO iFIX6 (White), iFIX7 (Natural finish), iFIX17S Subwoofers, powered by CELTO 2.6 & 2.10 amplifiers and processing using CELTO SP26 DSP.

The iFIX - Fixed install series has become CELTOs most widely selling series and not without good reason. It uses Coaxial technology, hence true point source with HF compression drivers and not tweeters. This enables the speakers to be extremely small with minimal visual impact, at the same time capable of high SPL output with pristine sound quality. Besides other unique features the iFIX are using high-grade birch ply cabinets, not plastic ones with multiple arraying options.

Adds CELTO Country Head - Moshe Aston ``We at CELTO are delighted to have Sean Enterprises as our preferred partner for Goa. Further we congratulate Thalassa for their 2nd outlet during the pandemic and we are very happy to be a part of their journey. Wishing them many more outlets to come and powered using CELTO Acoustique gear. CELTO is growing really fast both globally and in India. We have more than 300+ installs in India during the last 4 years of our official presence here”.
