One of the most important aspects of Home Cinema Design is perfect cinema seating. Of course, it’s important to have a beautiful projected image and life like 3D surround sound, but if you are sat too close or too far from the screen the cinema effect will be ruined.

The perfect layout of your home cinema seating is not the only consideration; aesthetically the cinema seats need to work with the rest of the overall design but most importantly they need to be comfortable enough for a 6 hour Star Wars marathon.

We have a range of Home Cinema seats available, including The Signiture Cinema Club Seat, a commercial style fold down seat allowing the maximum number of viewers in a smaller area.

Sonos provide the most simple multi room audio system we’ve ever used.

There are a range of options to suit every multiroom installation including:

  • Sonos Connect –  We use the Connect to add multiroom control and functionality to an existing audio system in your home. Ff you have or would like to use a high quality audio system and would like to be able to stream digital audio, this is the best option, allowing us to provide the highest audio quality.

 

  • Sonos Connect Amp – This is the Sonos product we specify most often, it is like the Connect but includes a powerful and high quality amplifier. If you would like the most discreet multiroom audio system, with in ceiling or even hidden in wall speakers, the Sonos Connect is the solution we’ll provide.

 

  • Sonos Play 3 / Sonos Play 5 – These solutions are complete all in one systems with their own built in speakers. They both represent fantastic value and using these solutions we can install a full home multiroom audio system in the shortest possible time without any disruption in your home. The main limitation of the Sonos Play systems are their size, meaning that they cant be hidden as discreetly as a Sonos Connect with In Ceiling Speakers.

  • Sonos Playbar – a TV sound bar providing the basis for a wireless surround sound system. The Playbar is a great solution when you would like to improve the audio from your Tv and provide music, linked to the whole home audio system. The Playbar can be pair with an optional Sonos Sub and a pair of Sonos Play 3 units to create a true surround sound system with 5.1 home cinema performance.

Deluxe Home Cinema System

We’ve put together a range of sample Home Cinema systems to provide you with an idea of what we can create for you.

The Deluxe system is our the popular because it provides a great balance of high quality performance and fantastic value for money.

The specification of our Deluxe Cinema Package is designed to create the most discreet system we can so that it can be installed in your main family living room without intruding on your interior design. We use a fully retracting motorised Projection screen and totally invisible Stealth Acoustics speakers, so nobody would know the system is there at all until you turn it on.

If the Cinema is being created in a spare bedroom or a garage conversion where the Home Cinema will be the main use of the room, a less discreet installation is often acceptable. We can discuss changes to the specification such as a fixed frame projection screen which does not retract so is always visible in the room, but will provide an improved picture quality compared to a similarly priced retractable screen.

The most surprising element of our Deluxe Home Cinema system is the installation of the Stealth Acoustics speakers inside your walls. This is not nearly as complex as it sounds and can be achieved easily without taring your home apart. Once the speakers are in place, we simply apply a thin plaster layer and paint to match the rest of the room, making the speakers totally invisible.

When your friends and family experience the lights dimming, screen descending from the ceiling and dramatic surround sound filling the room, they’ll be amazed that a true cinema experience can be created from equipment they didn’t even know was there.

Stealth Acoustics Stingray – outdoor speakers

Stealth Acoustics Stingray speaker, takes their high quality invisible speaker and places it into a completely environmentally sealed casing to offer an outdoor speaker that can operate in all weather.

Outdoor speakers have to be able to withstand the toughest elements that nature may throw their way. Stealth Acoustics have attacked this challenge and created the world’s first completely sealed outdoor speaker, so that unlike traditional speakers, they won’t fail, or be damaged and corrode over time when faced with the persistence of the natural outdoor environment.

The Stingray is completely waterproof and can even operate underwater, and at 0 degrees F, featuring an impenetrable glass fibre radiating surface that holds up against even the toughest elements. This makes it perfect for any audio system whether in the pool itself, in a sauna, in the garden, or even at a ski resort.

Let’s not forget what principal purpose of the speaker actually is though. Thankfully, despite the focus on protection from the elements, the sound quality has not been left forgotten. The speaker is deceivingly powerful with a good range, and is an all-round high quality sound.

Our goal is to make the technology in your home blend seamlessly with your interior design. This becomes especially important considering today’s multi-channel surround sound systems can require various speaker locations throughout the room.

Stealth Acoustics have solved this problem through their Invisible Series speakers offering high quality, dynamic, full range audio placed wherever you want, with the ability to be flush-fitted into a wall. This results in the best possible audio, but eliminates the unsightly grills and bulky boxes that come with traditional speakers.

Stealth Acoustics Invisible Speakers are perfect for if you don’t have the space for large, floor-standing speakers, or if you just prefer your cinema or audio heard but not seen. Only Stealth Acoustics give you the flexibility to use an invisible speaker just like you would a visible speaker and to optimise it for maximised performance and sound quality. Invisibility has never sounded this good.

There was a time when multiroom video systems were either vastly expensive or pretty poor quality. HDMI cables simple aren’t designed for long range transmission and really suffer from signal degradation at lengths of over 25ft.

HDanywhere have solved this problem by utalising the new HDBaseT Technology which allows us to provide full HD video, including the forthcoming 4K Ultra High Def standards, as well as HD Multichannel Audio and a fast internet data network up to a range of 300ft.

Their new HDanywhere Modular range allows us to specify only the functions required for each room with no wasted capacity so you do not pay for features you don’t require. With solutions starting from under £500 per room HDanywhere products allow us to create “Follow Me TV”, because you can watch and  control your SKY set-top-box or blu ray player in every room. This means you can begin watching a film in one room, pause and resume in another room, or just check what  the kids are watching without leaving the sofa.

The new Modular range from HDanywhere was fully designed and manufactured in the UK, check out this video to see how.

Invisible Cinema

We love films. Whether blockbuster Sci-Fi adventure, or a thought provoking social commentary, but no film can live up to its full potential on small screen or under whelming sound system.

That’s why we specialise in creating Home Cinema systems that can provide the big screen experience but disrupt the look of your home.

Using a motorised projection screen and projector lift, we can hide everything from sight when not in used, dropping it in place in a few seconds with the touch of a button.

We recently installed a projection system for a customer whose 50inch screen just wasn’t creating the effect he wanted. Using the customers existing HiFi system for the for the front Left and Right speakers, we added a centre channel and in hidden in wall rear speakers to create the surround sound experience.

We configured an iPad application to start the cinema system with a single button, switching the TV off, dimming the lights, lowering the screen and projector as well as turning on the amplifiers and selecting the right inputs etc.
There are even separate buttons configured for films and the games console so the children have a simple way to bring their games to the big screen.
