Sight is only one sense and when the lights get turned off the other senses kick in. That’s what wins us our awards, what will blow you and your friends away, and what the pictures can’t do justice to. The awards we win are always for engineering excellence. The awards are never for what the room looks like.
The ultimate home-theatre doesn’t come out of a box. For a truly immersive experience, you need to incorporate design, technology and engineering. When other parties get involved that don’t understand the requirements of the room, the cinema is compromised. That’s why we take your vision and design your cinema from scratch. We meticulously select, or in some cases manufacture the individual components, to ensure everything works together in harmony.

This home cinema that had actually won a CEDIA Award many years ago, but over time, technological advances had all but made the room completely obsolete. For example: the room had no subwoofers — no low-end frequencies
Additionally, the space was to be used for both surround-sound movie viewing as well as two-channel (traditional stereo) listening. The client had upgraded the projector at some point, but the aspect ratios didn’t match the original screen: The client was viewing letterboxed movies.
