In a distinctly upmarket property in Surrey we designed and installed this high performance 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range) cinema room complete with acoustically transparent AV wall incorporating the equipment cabinet at the bottom. The design looks like a flat wall but in fact houses the amplifiers, ethernet hub and all the sources. All you see is the screen and the black cloth wall.
Equipment used :
Sony VPL-VW550 4K, 3 chip, HDR projector with lens memory for switching between 16×9 TV broadcasts and 2.35:1 Widescreen movies.
Anthem MRX720 Surround processor with Dolby Atmos
DALI Rubicon LCR loudspeakers all round and a DALI SUB-K14 14″ long throw subwoofer for the low notes !
Sources include Sky-Q in 4K, Apple TV in 4K, Oppo UDP-203 4K Blu-Ray player, and spare inputs for other devices as they come along.
Behind the screen is some acoustic wall treatment using our own HiFi Cinema absorbent 50mm thick panels.
The end result is quite stunning with a huge three dimensional soundstage which is much bigger than the room, and at listening levels that would make your toes curl !
The star ceiling adds the finishing touch – this had to be a surface mount due to constraints with the sprinkler system and meeting fire regulations.
Dont you just love that little projector on the table 🙂
