Project Brief

The first point of call was leading British Hi-Fi and AV manufacturers Meridian, who’s Digital Media system provided the backbone for multiroom audio with lossless CD ripping and playback, and MQA or studio quality streaming available throughout the house. Their 800 series audio system and active DSP SE Range speakers provide the 7.2 channel THX Certified cinema sound and playback from the streaming system, with the client’s existing AVID turntable setup also piped in.

Kaleidescape multi-room video delivers Blu-Ray quality high-definition video and audio to all the TVs in the house. The main room specifically utilising the latest LG OLED display technology with Lumagen RadiancePro 4K video processing, all professionally calibrated to industry standards for levels of perfection not often seen outside of the mixing studio.

Dynalite lighting was used to provide scene controlled lighting throughout the living areas. With all the technology in the house is ultimately managed by the Control4 Home Automation system giving the family easy access to their music or movies, security system. and lighting, directly from their touchscreen devices.
