It was nice to start with a blank canvas when designing this system, our customers, Mr. and Mrs. P, approached us early enough in the build to enable us to integrate the whole system properly before the first fix wiring was in place.

The property comprises a country house in extensive grounds in a picturesque village, which will be phase 2 of the renovation project, meanwhile the barn conversion will be used as smart new accomodation and ultimately living accomodation for relatives.  A bit of forward planning enabled us to put wiring in for future expansion of the computer Ethernet system, multiroom music  and integrate the two buildings.

System comprises:

Sky HD receiver plus additional Sky + receiver for feeding the rest of the house

Anthem BLX200 Blu-Ray player

Arcam AVR600 surround receiver with high definition sound decoding (Dolby True HD and DTS Master Audio)

Dali Mentor 5 loudspeakers (fronts and rears),  Dali Mentor LCR centre channel, Dali Ikon Subwoofer

Sim2 D80 projector (1080p)

Pioneer Kuro plasma screen (50")

Logitec Harmony 1100 touch screen remote control

Solid Oak AV cabinet integrated into the AV wall - designed and built by HiFi cinema's own joiner Ken.

The result is quite simply jaw dropping.  Both picture and sound integrate seamlessly to transport you into another world.  The soundstage is way bigger than the room, the combination of the Arcam surround amp and the Mentor speakers gives an almost overwhelming detail and subtlety which is further enhanced by the all involving 8' picture.
