This client in Brooklyn wanted a high-end home theater installed in his beautiful new living room, and also needed equipment moved out of the dining room with new components installed there and in the bedroom. DTV Installations put together a comprehensive proposal after providing a free consultation, and the client was anxious to get started – so we did.
We used a show-stopper for the centerpiece of the home theater: a 75” Sony XBR75 Z9D 4K Smart Android Ultra HDTV which features the latest High Definition Resolution (HDR) technology, and was hung on a Strong SM-T-XL mount. The accompanying A/V receiver is just as high-tech; it’s the 4K 7.2 channel Sony STR-ZA2100ES, which delivers perfect music reproduction and theater-quality sound. It has a special in-ceiling audio mode for ideal surround-sound calibration, supports all of the latest video and audio formats, and is programmable via browser, phone or tablet.
Those beauties were coupled with a wireless Sonos Connect amp and five Monitor Audio speakers: two CP-IW260X three-way luxury in-wall speakers with a symmetrical five-driver B-M-T-M-B configuration, two CSS230 shallow in-ceiling speakers and an R380-GW subwoofer. The audio produced by this wireless setup is sublime.
We installed and programmed all of the components, finishing with an MRX-10 advanced network controller (for connectivity) and an advanced Wi-Fi remote control, the URC TRC-1080.
Dining Room and Master Bedroom
The client had an older home theater in the space that used to be his dining room. We removed and recycled all of the old components and speakers before installing and programming a new audio system in this room.
It’s based around Sonos equipment: a Playbar Powered Soundbar and wireless music system, positioned on a Sonos wall mount bracket and supplemented with a Sub subwoofer. The entire system operates via WiFi and is controlled with another URC TRC-1080 remote control.
The HDTV we removed from the dining room was hung in the master bedroom, where we added a Sonos Playbar Soundbar and TRC-1080 remote control.
All of the wireless systems needed rock-solid connectivity. To provide it we installed and wired a Luxul XWR-1750 dual-band wireless Gigabit router, a Luxul XWS-2510 wireless controller kit with high-power dual-band APS, and a Luxul AGS-1024 AV Series 24-port Gigabit rack mount switch. The system ensures perfect Internet connectivity for all of the components and remotes in the home.
The client started with a rudimentary home theater in an older room. After just a day of work by DTV Installations, he had a showpiece home theater in his new living room, a modern listening space in the dining room and an HDTV with great audio in the master bedroom – and thanks to the retailer equipment discounts we provided, all at a terrific price.
