Beautiful Sound System Upgrade

IMG_0055
Here are photos of a really beautiful sound system we upgraded this week in
Port Angeles. The room is cozy and acoustically treated with Vicoustics.

The new Focal Sopra 2s do a beautiful job delivering a very believable reproduction of each and every song played on the Sooloos digital library.

Thanks again to our gracious customers for allowing us to share photos of their room on our website.

Home in the Desert

Home In The Desert

I thought I would share some photos of project we just finished this week in Santa Fe, New Mexico. One of our best clients purchased a home there and asked us to outfit it with an incredible audio-video system. This is the fourth home we have done so far for him and his wife. As you can tell they are truly “Nuts About Hi-Fi”.

They flew us out the first time several months ago to scope out the job. I noticed when arriving how incredibly quiet it is there. I knew immediately that this was going to be one of the best systems we have installed to date. After meeting with their contractors and designers we all put our heads together and came up with a plan to create a home for entertaining. Matt, Adam and Marie flew out several times during the remodel process to run cabling and install the products.

Matt and I flew down this last week to put the final touches on the system and hear the finished product. I wish all my friends could hear this system. Quite the goose-bump machine to say the least. Definitely one of the top systems I have ever heard. Thank you two for everything. It it a blessing to have customers with your level of enthusiasm for what we do.

Sound System for the Boating Life

Boat System

I thought i would share a few photos sent to us by one of our good friends and customers. This is aboard a beautiful locally moored yacht. The system was designed to conserve living space and to provide exceptional music and movie entertainment.

The Focal bookshelf speakers are secured by the cabinet while underway. The Universal Remote controls the entire system including the motorized flat screen which disappears when not in use.

I visited this home a couple weeks ago to help Fred tweak the sound but frankly he had already got things pretty much dialed in. The bass response from the JL F113 was easily the best I’ve heard on a water craft and when you sit on the couch, the Focal speaker system  provide an exceptional sound stage. What a treat for me to see and hear.

AHOY Fred, nicely done!

Home Theater Sound Improved by Vicoustic

Home Theater - Vicoustic

These are a few photos of a Vicoustic treatment installation Adam finished last week for one of our clients.

We originally installed the movie system in this room a couple of years ago. It always sounded quite good with having Focal main speakers and a JL Audio F113 subwoofer.  However because of the reflective shape of this room, it has never performed quite as well as we felt it could, even after shooting it several times with Audyssey Pro and tweaking speaker settings and locations.

So the home owners invited us over to recommend room treatment to calm it down. The result is that it is now a much more believable and engaging movie watching experience. They phoned me to tell me what a terrific difference the acoustic treatment has made and how much they appreciated Adam’s “excellent work”.
