Local Magazine Features Nuts About Hi-Fi

West Sound Home & Garden magazine just did a wonderful feature story on us and the state-of-the-art, entire home, audio / video installation we’ve been designing and installing for the past couple of years. We’re providing a few snippets from the article, but you should read the whole thing. You’ll get the full picture of what we can do to make your audio/video dreams come true. Here’s a link to the article:

Serious About Home Entertainment

A few samples from the article:

The audio/video components also include hard drives large enough to store literally thousands of movies and music in their full, uncompressed, original formats.

The heart of their home would center around music and home entertainment to bring friends and family together for fun and memory-making. They wanted entertainment of all kinds: a billiard table, golf-simulation games, music and movies both indoors and out. To make that particular part of the dream come true, they hired Jim Lee and his crew at Nuts About Hi-Fi.

—————-

From start to finish, this project took two years. Lee, Krawoski and Huson spent around 20 hours talking, demonstrating and designing with their clients. The project fills three closets with equipment racks to manage the seven-zone, surround-sound system and screens. No room in the home was left out of the plan, including the garage. The zones can operate as a whole-house system or as individual rooms.

—————-

Once the system is installed, the equipment is balanced to the acoustics of each room. The Nuts About HiFi team live for the moment when they finally crank up the sound system for their clients. These two broke into wonderous smiles and danced to the music.

Cozy fire pit enhanced with custom-designed barrel speakers. The subwoofer satellite-speaker system provides a very warm, full-range music presentation even when played at a low volume.

Spring Cleaning For Your Stereo System

“In the Spring, a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of… Audio Gear!?!”

May Tennyson forgive my blatant bastardization of his poetic masterpiece, but its true: as Winter turns to Spring, flowers begin to bloom, animals awaken from hibernation and guys start prepping their toys for the warm months. All across America, lawnmowers are gassed and lubed, boats are lowered into lakes and rivers, hot rods are tuned and detailed until they shine like mirrors; in other words, it’s time for Spring Cleaning and your Stereo System is the best place to start! Tweaking your system means being a “Do it yourselfer” and, like car guys, you should derive pleasure from maintaining, improving and hot-rodding your gear. There’s a special satisfaction that comes from Sweat Equity and this is particularly true in the case of system optimization.

Although many connoisseurs assume a Stereo System requires little or nothing in the way of maintenance, nothing could be further from the truth. Mechanical vibrations and electrical impulses loosen nuts and bolts, while dust, dirt and pollutants contaminate every connection in your system. Records, cartridges, laser pickups, etc are equally vulnerable. Since these changes occur gradually, you might not notice the degradation in performance on a day-to-day basis but trust us: once you’re given your system a serious “Spring Cleaning,” you’ll hear everything you’ve been missing. And remember: THIS IS FUN!!! Enjoy spending some “Quality Time” with your system…

Lyngdorf-MP-60

Lyngdorf MP-60

The next best thing has just arrived at Nuts About Hi-Fi. We are excited to announce a new product into our ever growing line of products. The Lyngdorf MP-60 Audio/Video Processor.

Peter Lyngdorf, along with Steinway & Sons, has created a stellar audio/video processor that not only looks good, but sounds amazing too. There are many features in the MP-60 that make it get past the problems that most audio/video processors possess. Normally with a surround sound system, music is just held back. This requires having a separate stereo processor in conjunction with the surround sound to get the benefits of both. With Lyngdorf you get the best of both in one unit. The full balanced output design with only XLR connections ensures the best signal to your external amplifiers. Room Perfect then goes through and mics everything to its purest resolution. We have done many high end processors, but nothing sounds quite as good as a Lyngdorf MP-60. We all want one for ourselves and we think you will too.
