The Minimalist Home Entertainment Room
The Sound Room was tasked with equipping the stunning, minimalist entertainment room of a client with a complete home theater solution. The design centers around the Supernova optical front projection screen; this comes with a very high contrast (x10), high-gain projection screen surface.
The Supernova screen uses advanced optical technology to filter out unwanted reflections, thus making it the ideal solution in home entertainment rooms where there is a high level of ambient light; it is also suitable in those applications when you do not want to dim the lights during front projection use.
Once our client saw a demonstration of the Supernova projection screen, he was immediately convinced of the superiority of the screen and that its elegant design would fit perfectly in his minimalist entertainment room.
The screen had to be placed on a wall adjacent to a large window and opposite another glass window. Bright light posed no problem to the Supernova however, due to its optical technology and patented high-contrast filters that effectively absorb ambient light. The image remained bright and clear even without the dimmed lights associated with the traditional home theater setting.
The full equipment list includes:
Speaker Package: Dali – Piano Home Theatre Speaker Package
DVD Player: Pioneer DV989 S, DVD Player
AV Receiver: Sunfire Ultimate Receiver II
Projector: SIM2 Grand Cinema HT 305 Evo
Screen: 100-inch DNP Supernova Optical Front Projection Screen - widescreen format
Installation complete with satellite radio and satellite TV
The real reward for any installer is a satisfied customer; our client described the full experience as 'more than expected... better than any movie theater!'
