Beautiful 18th Century Listed Property
discretely brought into the 21st Century
The Client's requirements were simple for the elegantly restored Drawing Room - "We want the best sound quality without spoiling the appearance of the room and we need a TV above the fireplace - but isn't it too high to locate it there?"
There is no substitute for floor standing speakers. The Morel Octave Signatures we selected are however unusually slim and elegant, whilst providing lifelike and high volume, audiophile quality sound.
The other speakers were ceiling-based, but highly directional, to ensure good dispersion of the high frequencies in the chosen listening positions.
Using the latest Samsung "FrameTV", this transforms at the touch of a button, from a wide choice of "framed paintings", looking exactly like a flush-mounted, framed picture, into a TV.
We solved the high TV position above the fireplace, by using the latest, electric TV mount that first comes out and then drops down over the mantelpiece by as much as one metre, to position the TV in the perfect position for viewing!
The subwoofer was hidden behind the rear sofa using a wireless transmitter and then the whole system was calibrated for the optimum sound using the latest Anthem Genesis Room Correction system.
