French Chateau pt.3

After few month, we went back to France to continue installation at this magnificent property.
Sorting miles of Cat5 and Cat6 cables, speaker cables, rack building, hanging plasma TVs around the house, etc. We also did tests in order to determine how big projection screen will be.

 AV rack in the main house, housing 16 zone NuVo Grand Concerto multiroom system with Music server with Internet radio, dual FM tuners, additional power amps and 12TB Qnap NAS hard drive with uncompressed music files. 

Another big AV rack in cinema room that will be filled with some tasty AV and Hi-Fi gear from Onkyo, Denon, Conrad Johnson, etc...

Five pairs of Kef Ci500 AW outdoor speakers were installed in massive barn which will be used as a function room. These will take care of background music, together with Arcam MZ series multichannel amplifier.

 Screen test in cinema room, to determine size of a screen. Projector is Panasonic AT-TA6000E HD 3D. Screen will be massive 150" acoustically transparent 16:9 Screen Excellence Enlightor 4K.
To get the idea of how big the screen is, there is a door to machine room on the left!

 Custom made MDF boxes that will house surround and rear surround Sonance SUR-1S speakers for full 7.1 surround. Existing ceiling is also a floor upstairs, so we had to suspend them on metal rods. Sonance speakers are already set in moulded plastic box (closed design) so placing them inside boxes, lined with rockwool, would not affect their performance.

Testing how it will look with speaker in...

When only the best is good enough! Cabling for home cinema - Chord Rumour silver plated speaker cables and new Chord HDMI Advace high speed cable with Ethernet.

Each room will have access to NuVo multi room system, with local amps also enabling guest to listen music from their phone, iPod or lap top on ceiling mounted Kef Ci200 3QR top of the range speakers.
Whole house is also wired with numerous ethernet and TV points.

 Mighty Panasonic TH-65VX300 65" 3D reference plasma screen, fitted with Future Automation swivel bracket, awaiting fixing. 

 Main house rack is slowly getting filled with equipment..

Some of the rooms are nearly finished...
