A Stunning Eight Person Home Cinema Installation in Surrey
This stunning 6m x 5.5m home cinema room Surrey performs in every way! A 150″ wide (a huge 3.8m!) acoustically transparent projector screen hides an amazing Artcoustic speaker package consisting of Spitfire 24-12 Front Left, Center and Right speakers which are enhanced by two Control 3 subwoofers. The acoustic lined fabric walls hide four Artcoustic Spitfire 8-4 speakers providing rear and surround channels with two further Architect SL4-2 speakers providing height channels. The latest 3D audio formats are produced by a high end Anthem MRX-720 AVR ensures a stunning, powerful sound which is equally suited to music as well as film. The inbuilt Anthem ARC software performs full room EQ and calibration and works with the previously mentioned acoustic treatments to deliver the best audio experience possible. A Sony VPL-VW760ES 4k projector, with a huge 2,000 lumens, ensures a top quality picture from a variety of sources including Sky TV and a 4K Apple TV.
Full Lighting Control & Smart Controls
Client supplied seating is arranged in two rows with individual chairs on the front row and two seat sofas on the elevated back row. Tables between each seat provide a handy space for drinks and snacks whilst accommodating individual lights. A Crestron lighting control system ensures lamps are at the perfect level for film watching with a different scene activated for entering and leaving the room. The lighting system allows lamps to be dimmed to a dull glow – adding warmth and atmosphere to the room without distracting from the cinema experience. Crestron also control the entire audio video experience via an iPad, ensuring easy control of all sources and one button press to switch the room on to a specified source.
One of the main ways this room excels is its acoustic footprint. The entire room was modelled by our home cinema design team and acoustic treatments installed where required. In addition to these acoustic treatments the room benefits from a full acoustic fleece wrap before the final fabric walling is installed. The result is a room which is incredibly neutral – allowing the Artcoustic surround sound system to perform at its absolute best.
