For this job we actually came in after the star ceiling/step up and lighting was already completed. The client had essentially struggled to find a home theatre installer who would take on the rest of the project for a reasonable cost.
That’s where we came in, and after listening to their needs and wants we quoted them based on the room, style and budget.
Highlights of this installation: audio and video calibration
After fitting a 7.2 surround sound system with an Epson 9400 – black projector and 130” screen, the cinema sound and image experience in this room is AMAZING!!!
This is also down to the fact that the client requested a full audio and video calibration. For TV’s and projectors this means you get the right skin tones, clarity and clarity from your picture; and for speakers and home theatre audio it can make a big difference to the overall soundstage and sonic clarity you experience.
The audio calibration for this installation included:
- Initial test of system
- Critical listening review
- Seat to seat consistence review
- Calibration of bass management settings
- Speaker response measurement
- Speaker function check
- Speaker polarity check
- Listening position alignment
- Subwoofer position assessment and advanced tuning
- Reference level calibration of main speakers
- Calibration of time delays
- Calibration of subwoofer levels and phase control
- Review sonic clarity
- Review soundstage envelopment
- Review dynamic range
- Review each listening position
For this client we will also carry out Certified Professional ISF Calibration, done after one month of installation. This gives the speakers and projector time to run in and reach their optimal level of sound performance. Our calibrator then visits your home by appointment and does an additional premium level service to adjust the output levels of your home theatre projector, and sound pressure levels of your loudspeakers to a professional ISF standard.
