The zoned music system is flexible enough to send the same music to the entire space or stream specific playlists or cable music channels to individual zones at personal workout stations. Soothing new age music calms weary muscles in the sauna aft er a rigorous workout and hip hop music thumps across the basketball court during after-work games.  Workout areas and cardio machines have plug-in locations for personalized listening through iPhones and MP3 players.

Indoor pool and golf

The sound system supporting such a pampered environment had to be the quintessential no-brainer.  In a standard residence, Electronic Design Group designs home A/V systems that are dummied down for everyone in the family -- plus the babysitter.  But in a 40-story hi-rise, the system has to be even more basic for regular members, guests, occasional users and staff  -- from technophiles to technophobes.  EDG achieved equal opportunity operation through a Crestron control system.  Users control the volume and music -- whether it’s a genre from cable music or a playlist from a connected iPad -- via virtual butt ons on wall-mounted Crestron touchpanel located in each zone. The system can also be controlled by the Aldyn’s front desk attendant.  If he has to make a page, he can mute the system to make an announcement everyone can hear.
