Home Cinema Surround Sound: Breathtaking audio

The best multiplex cinemas give you sound quality that pulsates through your body. They wrap you up in atmospheric sound, making you feel like you’re in the thick of the action.

Cyberhomes provides you with a clarity, richness and depth of sound that brings that magic to your home. You can opt for a traditional surround sound system, or the kind of 3D immersive sound experience that’s raised the bar in home cinema design.

Surround sound in your lounge or media room typically comes from a 5.1 system: five speakers and a bass subwoofer. In a larger space, you might opt for a 7.1 system, which places two additional speakers behind the audience.

Each group of speakers acts as a channel for different types of sound. Front-centre speakers relay dialogue; those to the side and back provide ambient sound effects, like rustling leaves or cheering crowds. With noises coming at you from different directions, you feel like you’re surrounded by sound.

3D immersive sound

Sounds and images are more closely linked than ever before, letting you experience sound as you would in real life. Your eyes and ears can track the flight of a helicopter coming in overhead, or even a bullet fired from a gun.

Dolby Atmos achieves this by isolating individual sounds into something called an ‘audio object’. The system intelligently moves these objects around your three-dimensional space, via multiple speakers in the walls and ceiling. So you’re not just surrounded by sound, you feel like you’re in the movie.
