From milk crates for LPs to leather binders for CDs, there has always been the question of how to best organize your music. The first problem with large music collections is how to store them. For over a decade, we have offered our great customer with Sooloos systems for just this reason. Sooloos allowed us to take someone’s CD collection and store it digitally in a pure lossless format. Once loaded onto the Sooloos server, they could comb through your collection to their heart’s content. Sooloos unfortunately was built for a different world from today. When first released, you needed a touch screen monitor to operate it.
Sooloos updated to 2.0 software when people no longer wanted a bulky monitor to go with their music player. Sooloos 2.0 allowed users to install an app on their iPhone or iPad. Both of these apps were much needed improvements, but still limited. This is where Roon comes in. Roon is what I like to call, “Sooloos 3.0”. Roon was actually created by the same people that created Sooloos. But Roon is built to use just about any device. You can control it with any smartphone, tablet, or computer. All of which have beautiful interfaces that let you easily explore and rediscover your music.
We can seamlessly take any Sooloos system and upgrade it to a Roon system to enjoy this new music experience. Come stop by the store, or give us a call. We think you’ll enjoy Roon as much as we do.
Below are screen shots from the Roon interface showing some of the spectacular features it has for organizing and exploring your music library:

We just received a new fun toy form our cabling company Nordost. The QRT QPoint Resonance Sychronizer is a little device that you place below or above your sound equipment. A problem with sound equipment is that the circuits in components create noise when they operate. This noise can be heard through your speakers. The QPoint emits a small electromagnetic pulse frequency to make these circuit components work with each other instead of fighting each other. Making all of the electronics work at the same frequency gets rid of unwanted noise. This lowers the noise floor and brings out more detail of your existing sound equipment. If you can’t place the QPoint underneath your component, they provide a pad to place it on top of your component to prevent scratching. There are two modes that the QPoint can be set to depending on your personal taste. The QPoint works great with preamplifiers, phono stages, CD players, DACs, and amplifiers. Come by and check out the latest innovation from Nordost.
What do you do when you have a Media Room downstairs, but you like to entertain on the main floor of your house? Logically, you remodel your Living Room to turn it into a secondary Media Room. The major problem with living rooms and projection systems is ambient light. That’s where Screen Innovations comes in with their vast screen materials and mounting options. Black Diamond material is the perfect solution for rooms with a lot of light and still having a vibrant image. And the Zero Edge Pro with RGB lighting gives a clean elegant finish.
The second part of this system design was what to do for a projector. We already had a good projector downstairs and needed a new one upstairs. So we moved the existing JVC RS57 projector upstairs and installed a new JVC RS3000 8K projector downstairs. The picture improvement on the new projector is amazing. And with 8K e-shift, all of your media is crystal clear.
Recently, one of our great customers decided it was time to upgrade his projector in the Media Room. After considering all the options he decided to go with the JVC DLA-RS4500 Native 4K Laser Light D-ILA Projector. With 20,000 hours of illumination at high power, replacing bulbs are a thing of the past. The output of 3,000 Lumens helps make the images pop off the Screen Innovation Slate Motorized Screen, even with ambient room lighting. And as always, JVC has the best native contrast ratios, giving the best possible black levels. And because this projector uses a laser, its dynamic contrast ratio is infinity : 1! The overall image quality delivered is purely spectacular.
