Sonos Play1 San Diego

 
 
Sonos PLAY 1s providing some tunes in stereo - San Diego

                                                       

As we discussed in our last article, we love Black Friday because we have the day off and are lounging around with family. We don't work or shop on Black Friday and you shouldn't either! Here's another one of our "Shop Black Friday early" specials. Sonos is running a sale where you save $50.00 if you buy a bundle pack of two PLAY1 units. We are accepting pre-orders and this sale begins on 11/15/2015. Ask any member of our sales staff for details. Below is a recap of one of our earlier articles about using two Sonosii as opposed to 1.

"Today I installed two Sonos Play1’s in a 10’x10’ kitchen.  It sounded good as usual. With the Sonos phone app I was then able to change the two speakers to stereo and WOW...it really changed the sound by separating the music and really filled the room. I demoed some jazz and the horns and the drums seemed to come from opposite ends of the Kitchen! It sounded REALLY fantastic.

The client then asked if I could put one of the speakers in another room. With the app I was able to easily remove the mode for one room (two speakers simultaneously playing in stereo) and change it to a mode that is best if you want music in two separate rooms. What a cool feature!  Sonos: Easy to move, control volume and pause with app, group all or some rooms and get all the music streaming you can imagine. Sonos: Easily add more speakers like the Playbar, the Sonos SUB for BIG BASS or 3 different sizes of speakers in a good/better/best set-up. Yep, I’m a fan and will have Two Please (in Stereo)."

High end home theater in San Diego

Martin Logan Motion 50XT center channel - San Diego home theater installation

Have you ever been watching a movie and asked the person next to you, "What did the guy say?" The way that movies are mastered in the studio and then transferred to DVD/Blu-Ray can make it hard to hear voices unless you have your surround sound system turned up to 11. Here's what we did to improve a client's audio/video system so it sounded MUCH better.

1) ADD A CENTER CHANNEL SPEAKER

This client had an existing stereo set-up with a pair of speakers. They didn't opt to go with surround sound initially as there was nowhere in the rear of the room to add speakers.The room is open and has lots of echo so voices on TV/Blu-Rays were bring distorted. Our team added a center channel speaker from Martin Logan (Martin Logan Motion 50XT) to focus the vocals directly to the listening area. This speaker is characterized by extremely clean treble and mid-range and we felt it would do well to enhance the clarity of voices, speech and center effects.

2) OPTIMIZE THE SYSTEM

Many of today's audio/video receivers have multiple ways to calibrate the audio settings. This is VERY important to provide better sound. In this home theater installation, we had to tweak the volume to match the existing system in addition to adjusting the EQ for the center channel to match the tonal balance of the left/right speakers. NOTE: Many surround sound receivers don't have this feature. Choose wisely or talk to our salespeople about what receiver is right for your application. Once we adjusted the center EQ, the difference in sound was mind-blowing.

Our client could now hear vocals clearly and it seemed like there was an entire wall of sound across the front of the room. The difference in sound was night-and-day and it only took us about an hour. PROBLEM SOLVED!

San Diego Dolby Atmos Home Theater


San Diego Dolby Atmos 

San Diego Dolby Atmos Home Theater

Today at Aire Theater Designs we had the privilege of giving one of our customers an awesome theater room.  We installed a 100” Dragonfly projection screen, three on-wall Definitive Technology Mythos XTR-60 speakers (for front left, front right and center channels),  four in-ceiling Definitive Technology DI 6.5S ( for surround and front presence channels), two on-wall Definitive Technology XTR-20BP bipolar surround speakers (for surround back channel) and a Definitive Technology Supercube 2000 (subwoofer).  We powered the system with a Yamaha RXA-2040 audio/video receiver that comes with the ability to do Dolby Atmos. This surround format is the latest and greatest in today’s surround sound.

There are only a few movie theaters in San Diego that have the ability to accomplish Dolby Atmos. Having it in your house where you can watch movies in complete comfort is the best! Dolby Atmos provides a level of realism that previous formats can’t duplicate.  For example, when watching a movie with gunfire you can literally hear the bullets flying by your head and passing over behind you.  The sounds in a film that you should be hearing above you…….you actually do!  It makes the whole movie experience incredibly immersive.

Don’t feel left out if you have a 5.1 surround sound system.  With a few modifications we could get your surround sound system upgraded to Dolby Atmos quality. We love movies so we will be retrofitting our showroom for Atmos shortly to let you hear the difference that Atmos can make in your home. Love movies too? Come visit San Diego's home of the latest technology (and soon Dolby Atmos) at Aire Theater Designs.

Sonos Play1 r

 
 
Sonos PLAY 1s providing some tunes in stereo - San Diego

                                                       

What would you call two Sonos PLAY1 units? Sonoses? Sonosii? Two Sonos PLAY1s? I'm not sure what to call them aside from good sounding! Here's a couple lines from our installer Shon who just set up a couple. P.S. Sonos is running a special where you save $50.00 if you buy a bundle pack of two PLAY1 units. Ask Shon or a member of our sales staff for details.

"Today I installed two Sonos Play1’s in a 10’x10’ kitchen.  It sounded good as usual. With the Sonos phone app I was then able to change the two speakers to stereo and WOW...it really changed the sound by separating the music and really filled the room.

 Definitive Technology, Martin Logan, Monitor Audio and Origin Acoustics on display

 

When we decided years ago what speaker lines to carry as a company, our decision was based on sound quality, speaker reliability and having brands that sound different from one another so that you, our client, could have three different options to easily determine what TYPE of sound is best for you. There is no BEST sound...there is only what is best to your ear. Here are our three main lines of speakers with a quick description of what they will do for you.

Martin Logan, Monitor Audio and Definitive Technology

First, the Martin Logan Electro Motion ESL (Electrostatic speakers) series uses an electrostatic material as the basis of their technology. This is a very thin electrically-charged material that allows the speakers to move faster so they are more responsive than conventional speakers. This allows the music to be heard the way the artist intended.  They pick up every little detail of the instruments and isolate voices with amazing clarity. Sit back, enjoy a glass of fine wine, close your eyes and you will feel like the artist is right in front of you. There is no speaker at the price point that replicates their clarity.

http://www.martinlogan.com/

Second, we love the Definitive Technology BP8060 tower speakers. These speakers feature "bipolar" technology with front and rear facing speakers. They also have built-in subwoofers in each tower which eliminates the need for separate subwoofers (this saves on floor space). This bipolar technology radiates sound forward and back for rich, life-like, room-filling, three-dimensional sound for every listener in the room. This is the way that we hear things in real life. The built-in subwoofers alleviate the need to purchase separate speakers. With life-like sound and DEEP bass, grab a craft beer and some friends and get ready to rock your night away. There is no speaker at the price point that replicates their wide, BIG sound and bass.

http://www.definitivetechnology.com/products/home-theater-speaker-systems/

Third but definitely not least, Monitor Audio Silver and Gold speakers use high end components such as ceramic coated drivers and proprietary compounds as the basis for their technology. These technologies create better rigidity for less distortion and a very crisp, clean sound. The detail and airiness that their speakers create is fascinating. You also get GREAT bass with their porting technology and rigid drivers. These things combine for a big sound in a medium size package. Did we mention the available beautiful real wood cabinets with choice of finishes like Rosewood or Ebony?. Add beauty and amazing sound to your room.  Pour some Scotch, put in a Blu-Ray or stream some music and let go. Work stress...good bye!

If you're interested in enhancing your life with music, movies or home automation, give us a call and let San Diego's Martin Logan, Definitive Technology and Monitor Audio experts show you what's available today. Come and take a test listen. UPDATE: We have added Origin Acoustics and their landscape Bollard speakers to our line-up. If you're looking for outdoor audio, these outdoor landscape speakers deserve a listen.
