Multi-Room AV and dedicated Cinema Room

Dedicated HiFi Cinema Room
Dedicated HiFi Cinema RoomThe Brief for this project evolved over a number of months. It involved AV distribution to most rooms about the house, with a variety of quality presentations depending on the room. Added to this was a dedicated High spec Home Cinema

In short we ended up with:

  • 8 zones of Sonos Music
  • 7 zones of Linn Music
  • 4 TVs with Kaleidescape Movie playback and 2 Sky HD boxes & CCTV via HD distribution
  • 6 TVs with access to another Kaleidescape player and 2 sky boxes & CCTV via HD distribution
  • WiFi and Data distribution to all rooms
  • Dedicated High quality Cinema Room

This was a long project with many planning and technical delays waiting for the Build project to progress, however the end result is a superb sounding system with Linn Digital Streaming playback for the most used rooms. The less used rooms use Sonos music players to keep the cost down.

There is a Media Equipment cupboard where we made sense of the mass of data wiring. This was designed to be as flexible and future-proof as possible, allowing data, music and video to be streamed to any room.

The Equipment Rack included: Kaleidescape Video Serve; Kaleidescape Disk Vault; Zoneripper Music Server; 2 x Sky Boxes; 6 zone HD Anywhere HD Distribution; 52 port managed Gigabit Data switch; Cat6 Patch panels to all rooms; Coax Patch panels to all rooms; TV Distribution Amplifier; CCTV IP HDR; Broadband Router; Global Cache control hub.

High performance Cinema Room

The Dedicated Cinema room was built with quality in mind. This has a 9′ screen with Paradigm Signature LCR5 speakers behind the screen, Paradigm Signature ADP rear channel speakers and a massive Paradigm Sub15 subwoofer providing the grunt. The picture was generated from the superb Sim2 Mico 150 LED projector, for a pin sharp image, and also meaning that bulb life should never be a worry.

There are two tiers of comfortable electrically adjustable seats, and the padded walls and specialist soundproofing ensuring that even at ear-popping volumes this system will sound fantastic and won’t trouble others elsewhere in the house.

The special feeling in the cinema room is finished off with a fibre-optic star ceiling with Multi colour LED driver coupled to the lighting system.
