Stereo headphone audio was provided at each seat location, which can be controlled with ALTO DECU style keypads mounted into the interior side ledges with matching plated bezels.ttAn ALTO audio engineer tuned the system at Spirit Aeronautics by configuring the digital amplifier to match the acoustical profile for this specific aircraft before delivery to the owner.tt“When the customer approached us looking for an entertainment system with exceptional sound, we knew ALTO was the only real solution especially when we learned that the client has a highly developed ear for music,” commented Tony Bailey, president and COO of Spirit Aeronautics. “His tastes also rolled over into aesthetics and everything had to be beyond brilliant. Our team, in partnership with the ALTO staff, delivered the aircraft on-time with incomparable visual and audible results.”
