Living the high life
High-spec hardware and luxurious finishing touches make this picture palace the place to be
Daniel Sait

CREATED BY AWARD-WINNING pro install company Prestige Audio, this cinema is part of a whole-home system designed for an owner who had specific ideas on how it should perform – one of his businesses is a nightclub, so high-quality audio was a key demand.

Following hardware demonstrations, it was decided the cinema would run an immersive Dolby Atmos system with an emphasis on powerful, punchy bass, and the room – 8.5m long, 10m wide and 3m high – should feature eight seats across two rows, meeting the owner's need to entertain. Following pre-planning and testing, a 7.2.4 system, using models from US custom install specialist James Loudspeaker chosen for their high-quality delivery and integrated form factor, was specified. Processing is via a Dirac-equipped AudioControl Maestro M9, and power provided by a BGW VXi8.8 multichannel amplifier.
