Our engineers and designers consider every detail to give you the ultimate home theatre. And they work with the best equipment suppliers on the market.
We give you the lowdown on the home cinema equipment you’ll need, and the brands we trust to give you the best possible experience.
The essential elements of an audio system are the same for a dedicated home cinema or a multi-purpose media room:
Speakers: For a traditional surround sound set up, you’ll need left and right, centre channel, surround and rear speakers at least. For 3D immersive sound, you can have multiple speakers in the walls and ceiling.
Subwoofers: Generally the largest speakers in your sound system, the subwoofers deliver deep ‘body moving’ bass sounds. Typically, we will install two subwoofers, but more if the room allows.
Surround sound processor and amplifiers: A receiver can be installed for all video and audio processing and routing. It might include an AM/FM tuner, network access, an amplifier, an audio processor to direct sound to the appropriate speakers, and a video processor to enhance the picture on your high-res display. Larger systems will use separate equipment for each of these tasks.
Cyberhomes will make sure your home cinema will play content from all your preferred sources, including cable, satellite or streamed IP TV, a Blu-ray/Ultra HD Blu-ray/DVD player, game console or computer. We can even provide a movie server, such as Kaleidescape, so your whole film collection is instantly available without having to look for the disc.
A high-spec projector and screen are a must for stunning visuals. For your media room or living room, you’ll probably want these to be motorised. That means they can be hidden away when you’re using your LED/OLED screen for everyday viewing, and appear at the touch of a button when you’re ready to watch the big screen.
An equipment rack is needed to store your technology, and connect the mass of cabling that comes with a home cinema. It will ideally be sited outside your cinema room, to avoid noise and light pollution and manage heat.
Cyberhomes has a dedicated rack-building facility. This is where we design, build and test all our equipment racks and specify the cable schedules that make your cabling easily identifiable and fit for purpose.
Once your home cinema is in place, you’ll want to be able to use it with ease. We’ll provide you with a single user interface, integrated into any existing home automation system. As approved installers of Savant Pro, Crestron and Control4, we’ll recommend the control system best suited to your requirements.
This means you can operate every element of your home cinema at the touch of a remote control, wall-mounted screen, smartphone and/or tablet. We’ll set you up so that children and visitors can easily watch a film on the big screen when they want—either in your dedicated home cinema or media room.
Cyberhomes can help in all aspects of the design and build of your ultimate home cinema room
