the many gifts of music… and
of sound with sight… enjoyed
by all, all of the time
through innovative, knowledgeable, high value, high-fidelity A/V system designs.
Although the original goal
was to have comforting music in both adjoining rooms AND keep the price very
affordable, these goals could not be achieved.
The least expensive full
execution system would have required installing four pairs of Parasound C
65 V2 in-ceiling speaker systems, plus: wiring, separate receiver (could have
been a relatively inexpensive one because of the unique connecting scheme that
was needed to create a uniform stereo sound field), and remote repeater - all
could have been done in this particular home. We have done such rooms
before and it works out wonderfully. In fact, this is the basic design we
use for restaurants and offices. But, in all cases, the locations of the
speaker systems and the wiring configuration are critical.
second design consideration was to have two sets of carefully selected speaker
systems mounted on the outside wall with a unique wiring scheme that could
create a uniform stereo sound field. But, this design was rejected because
the very large picture widow negated the necessary spacing of the speaker
third and accepted design was to create a deep and soothing sound field for the
one part of the room that is guaranteed to be used
the most: the formal dining
area. This required a careful selection of the speaker systems to convert
them from the typical semi-omnidirectional sound field to a true unidirectional
