We originally worked on the whole of this property in Radlett back in 2011 installing a fully featured Control4 and Lutron home automation system. So when the property changed hands in early 2018 we were contacted by the new owner who naturally wanted to change a few things, upgrade their systems and add a 10 seater home cinema.
Luckily the basement of the property had plenty of space which enabled us to design a cinema of this size with the remaining space being used for a gym and fully stocked bar complete with beer pumps and spirit optics (envious gentlemen? yes we are too!)
The system is based around a 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos Triad loudspeaker array and Marantz 11 channel AV receiver giving the audience a large listening sweet spot and a truly immersive 3D surround sound experience when watching Dolby Atmos content.
The visual aspects are taken care of by the superb JVC x5900 4k projector which delivers a crystal clear, razor sharp image when watching both 1080P standard high definition and 4k Ultra HD content. we ensure the signal path from source to end point is future ready and can display Full 4k content – (when it eventually becomes more widely available). The acoustically transparent projector screen from Projecta allows speakers to be placed behind the screen without any detrimental effect to the sound quality coming from the speakers which gives you that authentic movie theater feel. The woven fabric of the screen also eradicates any unwanted visual imperfections sometimes caused by perforated screens this allows the screen to make the most out of the JVC’s superb picture quality.
To give convenient control over the cinema equipment we extended the use of Control4 products to make using the cinema a breeze. With just the touch of a button the lights dim right down to leave on just the step lighting, the projector is switched on and all associated equipment is turned on the correct inputs are set and your ready to watch your favourite movie, sports or box set! The Control 4 SR260 remote control then becomes the remote to operate whichever AV source has been selected. Transport controls, lighting, climate and source selection can all be operated from the control4 remote meaning you wont have to fuss around in the dark trying to find the right remote its all conveniently displayed on the back lit remote control screen.
