Obviously yes top dog of big corporate bottle-service quasi douchey club environment for sure.
I went to a big club in Tokyo called Womb a few weeks ago which obliterated the Guv in my eyes.
I thought for years the Guv had an amazing soundsystem and after going to Womb it just is kind of crap in comparison.
Hopefully whatever they do or invest in Sound Academy during the renovations is a major improvement of what they have now.
The guv SS is junk? really tell me more. The Irony in your statement is that Steve Dash did the Womb sound system.
Listen I'm not an audiophile.
For years I remember The Docks being advertised as having this amazing "Alpha-Dynacord" system, and everytime I went there the sound sucked. (still does for Sound Academy)
And the Hoxton is advertised as having this great sound system. Last went there a year ago and the sound was beyond mediocre. Good sound only at the very front of that club. Middle of the room and back it's laugably quiet.
The last time I heard truly GREAT sound in Toronto was at System Soundbar and I think one of the rooms at Circa, Footwork was decent too.
