SoundVision was brought into this home addition project by Marin Architect, Colleen Mahoney. Having worked with Colleen previously on an award winning green home project in Tiburon, she knew SoundVision was the right team for the job. In Colleen’s own words, “….[the room] was designed for perfect acoustics, the project is all about perfection, it’s about music, it’s about sound and we worked closely with Scott Sullivan and his team and SoundVision to help us dial in the home entertainment system.”
The client wanted a tried and true professional, an Artisan if you will, to design, install and support the audio, video and motorized features for this amazing home addition. SoundVision was proud to be a part of this high profile project.
The room was designed to be both a music room, featuring two concert grand pianos, and a media room. The client wanted to use the space for concerts and entertaining, and he did not want the media system to dominate the space.
To hide the video system we installed a Digital Projection HIGHlite Cine 1080p projector inside of a decorative soffit to keep is out of view. This was coupled with a Stewart FilmScreen motorized screen that is recessed into a soffit on the opposite side of the room, and automatically drops down when the system is turned on with the Universal Remote MX980.
The audiophile grade sound system features Wilson Audio Watt Puppy front speakers with a high performance preamp and tube amplifier. Audiophile sources include a turntable as well as a high performance CD transport in conjunction with an outboard DAC.
To provide the cinema experience we added an Integra Surround Sound Receiver, an Oppo DVD player and Sonance in-wall rear speakers.
Needless to say, this is the owner’s favorite room in the house and NARI recognized SoundVision with two Remmies Awards for TWO categories:
“Home Theater and Media Rooms over $150k” & “Residential Addition”
