This client wanted an existing room converted into a dedicated home cinema space. They requested a star ceiling, which was integrated into their coffered ceiling. We also painted the room and ceiling, installed in-wall front speakers alongside the 130” fixed frame screen.
Component highlights of this installation include:
- Yamaha Aventage RXA2a AV receiver, which has seven channels of power, each rated at 100W into 8 ohms. It has 7.1 channels which allows us to run 5.1.2 with two ceiling speakers delivering height signals. Dolby Atmos and DTS:X decoding are both onboard.
- The Epson TW9400 projector has 4K/UHD1/3LCD technology for amazing colour brightness, a wide colour gamut for professional colour accuracy and an exceptional 4K visual experience.
Custom cabinetry to house all AV components, including the AV receiver and Foxtel box.
Let’s now take a closer look at this home theatre installation, including the tech behind a star ceiling.
Custom starlight ceiling adds atmosphere
Manual installation of starlight ceiling
Our starlight ceiling installations use fibre optic filaments to give a room real atmosphere, and the effect of the night sky above. It creates a variety of star constellations and inspiring visual effects on your ceiling – and it can all be controlled via your home automation setup. Starlight ceilings are not just for home theatre rooms, you can also install them in other places – including games rooms, reception halls and even kids bedrooms.
Installing the step-up with integrated LED lighting
For this installation we also supplied LED edge lighting to highlight the raised platform or step-up for safety, visibility and that real cinema look.
Let’s take a closer look at the cinema-style seating installed here.
Manhattan’s New Yorker Pro series cinema seating
For this project we installed Manhattan’s New Yorker Pro series in a two row configuration for the ultimate in ergonomic home theatre comfort. This is an Aussie brand who creates high quality cinema seating with multiple features like a choice of leathers, stitching, and cup holder colours. The Pro series’ outstanding feature is the motorised recliner mechanism with an ultra quiet ‘Stealth’ motor, for silent adjustment, as well as a handmade solid wood frame for rock solid stability and durability.
