Dolby Atmos - A Different approach

We have to admit that this is a house that we have visited many times in the past. This particular customer holds a special place in our hearts and she is almost connected to the very essence of Powersound since the very beginning.

We have attended almost all her Audio/Visual needs since day one and she has been upgrading her gear since then.

So you can imagine our excitement when she announced to us that what was at the beginning a designated parking space, it will now be home of the house's dedicated play room / entertainment area!

Yet another Dolby Atmos system design was imminent! 

A dedicated Home Cinema / Gaming room!

Fun times! Since this was a dedicated entertainment room, we could do exactly what we wanted! No limitations apart from the fact that we need to work exclusively on the ceiling.

We just love freedom. Audio freedom!

The customer had only one request: Make it as good as possible positioning-wise, sound-wise and look-wise, while keeping it as minimal as possible.

Challenge accepted!

Wow! It even turned better than we thought it will. And that amazing graffiti really helped give this room more of a "gaming / movie" character that is sometimes missing from other rooms we visited.

This is most probably the best dedicated Gaming room we have ever built both Audio-wise and Video-wise.

Enjoy!

Dolby Atmos - It is here to stay!

Whether you are watching a movie, or playing your favorite game, sound is a vital ingredient of the whole experience. This is where Focal Speakers and Dolby Atmos excel! They are the medium to unprecedented levels of immersive enjoyment!  

 

A proper entertainment room done right!

So we are building a gaming / movie room, thus all we need is a big TV and some speakers right?

Wrong! This customer is renowned for her mouth-dropping attention to detail and simplicity. Less is more certainly applies in this situation.

"Why don't we spice things up and instead of getting a wallpaper we do it right and get someone to do the whole concept with graffiti?" she asked. It more like a statement than a question really and we all knew that the decision was already made.

And boy, we love the outcome so much!

The room's ceiling is now home for the Focal Dome. All 9 of them!

The 5.1.4 Dolby Atmos configuration meant that we needed 9 satellite speakers and 1 subwoofer to complete the setup. Having the prerequisite that everything bar the subwoofer should be ceiling mounted we feared that we might have a congesting situation once we were done.

Oh, how wrong we were. The Focal Dome speakers looked absolutely majestic and even though they made sure their presence was felt, they did so in brilliant and elegant way.

A lovely sight!

A closer look at the Focal Dome Speakers.

Made in France. A sentence that became synonym with almost all Focal products. The Dome satellites are no different. Ergonomic design, excellent build quality and of course flexibility.

Very easy to install, without the need to hide any cables since the routing system of the Dome takes care of that. The only thing the installer needs to worry about is the positioning and finding the correct angle!

 

Sit back, relax and enjoy!

Now that its complete, the room oozes of class and finesse. We found ourselves tapping our foot to the rhythm that the Focal Domes dictated and the 10 minutes movie-testing we had in mind easily turned into a 45-minute enjoyment of "Logan".

Sadly it was time for us to go, and leave behind us this gem of a room. We did so with a feeling of self-fulfillment and happiness. It is really hard not feeling that way while experiencing what that room has to offer. Definitely a go to place to get away from your everyday worries at least for a few hours.

Lucky owner!

The Chord Company's Leyline Speaker Cable.

Chord Leyline speaker cable came into being during the first wave of home A/V installation.   Amplifiers for all rooms were often installed in one place. This meant long (and sometimes very long) runs of speaker cable throughout the structure.  It also meant that the cable had to be discrete and affordable.  There were already a lot of cheap cables available, so we needed to develop something better.  Size restrictions meant using 16AWG conductors.  Long runs meant using a twisted pair design – which suited us as we already using twisted pair geometry to produce speaker cables anyway.  Cost ruled out silver-plating or using PTFE, so after much thought we settled on oxygen free copper conductors and low-density polyethylene insulation for conductors.

The problem came with longer runs and a loss of high frequency detail along with space and coherence. We solved this by tin-plating the conductors. It wasnt overly bright cable and would now carry high frequency detail over longer runs.  The final version of Leyline featured tin-plated oxygen free copper conductors, low density polyethylene insulation, a twisted pair conductor configuration and a protective PVC outer jacket.  The only change made between then and now is that the PVC outer jacket has been changed to polyethylene as it’s a low smoke, zero halogen material (LS0H), meaning Leyline can be installed in public buildings.

Leyline is also a great choice for rear speakers in bigger systems.  It can be used with pretty much whatever level of speaker cable you choose for the front speakers, with no loss of overall balance.


The Chord Company's C-View HDMI Cable.

Chord has been producing high-performance HDMI cables for about 12 years, they know that shielding and conductor quality play a big part in performance. Over the years, they have won many awards for their HDMI cables – from the original HDMI 1.1 to the latest high speed specification versions.

The C-view is a brand new design featuring silver-plated conductors and high frequency effective shielding and reflects the ever increasing slenderness of modern televisions and the size limits imposed by wall mounting. The 0.75, 1.5, 2 & 3 meter C-view HDMI cables have been designed to be as discreet and flexible as a high-performance HDMI cable can be, while still meeting the high speed specification for 4K televisions and sources.  Ultra slim and with a new reduced length plug design the C-view HDMI balances convenience and performance perfectly.
