Take a virtual tour of one of our completed theaters!

Ben Daniels is the owner of The Willows of Marshalltown, an assisted living and memory care facility in Iowa that accommodates 60 residents. Ben, an AV enthusiast, contacted us for our cinema design services. He wanted to create a dedicated cinema space that the residents could enjoy, as well as a space that would work to deliver employee training sessions. You can read more about the design process here. To take a virtual tour of the completed theater, visit The Willows of Marshalltown website, here, and click on 'Theater' on the left hand column.

Update from a music producer...

Nowell Valeri is an electronic music producer, composer, and performer from San Francisco. He recently produced his first album in his newly designed studio space. The biggest problem in his space was uneven bass. To read about how we addressed this issue visit our blog posting, here. To listen to the album, 'Black Rainbow Blues' by Rivelan, visit the bandcamp page here to stream the audio.

AVS Forum Home Theater Design.

We recently designed a 7.4.4 home theater for our client, Mr. Chari. The theater, like many, started its life as an unfinished basement. Mr. Chari consulted with us from the sound isolation design all the way to the acoustic treatment design. The theater is now completed and he is thrilled with the results. The space hints at a Roman theme with its built in columns and curved stage. One unique design feature of this theater is the custom slat diffusers on the side walls. They make for a visually interesting design where form and function are intertwined. You can read about the build process on the AVS Forum page here.

Much confusion still exists about what a room correction product does, what problems it can (and cannot) solve and therefore its 'place' in a modern high quality sound reproduction system. Part of the challenge of understanding room correction is that it requires a reasonable level of understanding of sound quality, acoustic science, acoustic measurement and psychoacoustics (how humans perceive sound). The majority of the articles I have read online or in print magazines do not cover the fundamentals in enough depth to allow the curious and committed reader a chance to understand room correction on anything more than a cursory level. By the end of this article I hope that you will have learnt enough to judge for yourself what room correction can and cannot do and how best to apply it in the context of a world class music or home theater system.
