French chateau, part 4
Couple of more weeks in sunny France and some more bits completed.
Main house 16 zone (!) NuVo Grand Concerto system is fully installed and working. Just waiting for client's QNAP NAS drives to turn up and set them up. Everyone is very pleased with sound, especially in large open areas where there are 8 Kef Ci200 QR with ceiling back boxes (which make all the difference!). Whole area is evenly covered and listener never feels like sound is coming from one direction...(except when One Direction are on the radio)!
NuVo 16 zones Grand Concerto AV rack
NuVo Grand Concerto AV rack and electricity hub.
Bottom of the rack will be soon populated with large ethernet patch bay.
Work in progress at the back of a NuVo AV rack...final testing and cable fixing.
150" Screen Excellence 16:9 cinema screen frame being assembled...
Sonance Cinema Series LCR2 speakers squeezed between slabs of special foam to stop vibration transmission to wall behind the projection screen.
Frame which will hold L/C/R speakers and cinema screen is in place and painted in cool dark brown. Brief is to keep as much of original summer house / barn features and atmosphere as possible.
Next step - stretch and fit the screen and then we will measure the room to determine its acoustic properties. There will be need for some acoustic treatments but they would have to blend in with the interior.
