The clients came into the Chelmsford showrooms looking for a minimalistic yet high performing Home entertainment system. After looking at the plans and making a site visit prior to any works starting on their new home refurbishment, we put together a number of different solutions, varying in price and performance. The clients then came back into our showroom and had a demonstration of the varying options. After careful consideration, the clients decided on a on ceiling mounted projector from Epson and an electric drop-down projection screen. The screen retracts and disappears into the ceiling when not in use. This was paramount in keeping it looking like a normal room during daytime. When the system is powered up, the screen drops down automatically and it becomes a Home Cinema room.
The in-ceiling speakers for the 5 main channels are the Aim series from Speaker-craft which provide excellent sound quality and style, again chosen for the unobtrusive look, fitting flush into the ceiling. The low frequency (Subwoofer channel) is covered by an excellent REL subwoofer. This is all driven by a Denon AV receiver, ensuring outstanding quality for both Movie sound and Music through the system. Sonos Connect & Sonos Connect Amplifiers are used for Music distribution into the main system and some further in-ceiling speakers in both the adjoining Kitchen area and Master Bedroom/Ensuite. Looks and sound are both stunning. A Sonos Playbar was added in a separate TV room to provide a much needed enhancement to standard TV sound. This is also the location for an HD distribution system to extend the SKY HD Box in HD to the other rooms of the house, with no loss of quality.
Our installation team worked closely with the clients’ builders and on-site electricians to ensure that we ran cables when needed during the build/refurbishment to keep the project rolling smoothly. Once the build was finished, our specialist installation team returned to commission and calibrate the system for optimum performance. This project took over 2 years from planning stage to final fitting of the system, ending up with a very stylish, modern, minimalistic, full home entertainment system, with excellent results.
The Clients are delighted with the final installation and performance.
