Here’s one of our latest Audio-Video, Home Theater, media room systems.

All audio-video equipment is hidden and out of sight.

The HDTV used in this media system is the Sharp Elite PRO-70X5FD. This is an ‘ELITE’ series TV [formerly by Pioneer] and features an LED 1080p screen. The 70″  LED TV is recessed above the fireplace for an elegant look.

For the bottom-end bass frequency, we installed a Velodyne high performance, In-Wall Subwoofer.

To control the home media system, we used a URC [Universal Remote Control] MX-980i that allows for complete control of the system with just one simple to use remote control. The remote will work through closed doors, the equipment can even be in another room!

Here’s a closer look at the equipment that is hidden out of site. Doors closed…then opened….. There is a fan system installed with a thermostat that allows the system to stay cool with the doors closed.

We’ve placed the Sonos Zone Players here for the whole-house music. They allow total control of the music system from an iPad, tablet or smartphone.
