One Crown Place, Shoreditch - Screening Room

We’re very excited to announce that we’ve been commissioned to design & install an 11 channel Dolby Atmos system in the Screening Room, at the newly developed One Crown Place in Shoreditch.

One Crown Place will mix innovative modern architecture, and warm interior design which is full of character. The communal Screening Room will have nods to the golden age of cinema - with an intimate atmosphere, a palette of green marble, satin brass upholstered wall panelling and green velvet. 

Obviously, with such a luxurious setting, it needs a state of the art cinema system to match. We'll create a truly immersive sound & visual experience. The 7.2.4 system, and crystal clear picture will be combined with our home automation, network systems, lighting controls, and acoustic tiling, to enhance the overall sound.

We were up against stiff competition - with some of the behemoths of the AV world asked to submit proposals. So we're proud an established independent like us will be working on such a exciting installation.

Watch this space for regular updates on the project!

Why not get in touch to recreate the cinema experience in your home too?

Our New electric van - Zero Emissions!

We're feeling particularly virtuous this week, as we've just taken delivery of our brand new Nissan env-200 electric van!

" Like Bob Dylan - We've gone electric. "

We try to be as environmentally friendly as possible, within an industry that's inherently energy hungry. 
Hopefully now that our van produces zero emissions, we'll help to off-set a tiny amount of that carbon.

We'll now be arriving to our custom installations, home demos & site visits in style, and as quiet as a church mouse ( under 25 decibels to be precise ).

Kraftwerk - PMC 9.1 Dolby Atmos - Kling Klang Studios

Electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk have chosen to upgrade their studio set-up with PMC monitors, as part of a new 9.1 Dolby Atmos system.

Kling Klang Studios, Düsseldorf, now includes a pair of PMC twotwo.6, a pair of twotwo.8 speakers, plus a PMC twotwo Sub2 active subwoofer. With this new set-up, Kraftwerk are able to re-work a huge collection of audio material and present it to the highest technological and audio standards, ready for their 3D live shows.

" The decision to upgrade to a Dolby Atmos setup using additional PMC monitors was made by Ralf Hütter & Fritz Hilpert, who was responsible for the 3D and 2D audio mixing. The choice was an obvious one, given that they were already very happy with their existing PMC IB2S system and wanted monitors that complemented its signal accuracy, excellent dispersion & unparalleled level of image integrity. "

" The new additions also give Kraftwerk the bass response and control that they see as a priority for their monitoring system. Featuring PMC's proprietary Advanced Transmission Line (ATL) technology, the company’s twotwo range is entirely capable of delivering the clarity and transient response that Kraftwerk demand, particularly at low levels. "

To coincide with the 3D live shows, Kraftwerk have released an audio/video documentary collection " 3D Kraftwerk Concert ".

Wolfgang Tillsmans Retrospective @ Tate Modern

Bowers & Wilkins 800D3 & Rotel Amp
 

Wolfgang Tillmans' Retrospective at Tate Modern features an immersive ‘Playback Room’: A purpose built listening room with a pair of Bowers & Wilkins 800 D3s and Rotel amplifiers - continuously playing three tracks from Wolfgang’s favourite band Colourbox.

“ There is a lack in the world of spaces for recorded music although there are lots of spaces for live music. I think people feel that recorded music is not expensive and so doesn’t deserve a room the way a big painting that costs a million pounds deserves a room. So for me, something like New Order’s Blue Monday is a perfect work of art and it deserves a room. “
