Hi-Fi Centre
Vancouver, B.C., Canada
Reference System Revs Up Audiophile Client
THE CLIENT of
Canadian integrator
Hi-Fi Centre is a big fan of
the " house " music genre. He
wanted to merge the sonic
impact of a nightclub system
with the quality of high-end
home audio - not a simple
task, notes Hi-Fi Centre
president Igor Kivritsky,
because sound quality and
high volume levels don't
always go together.
The audio enthusiast
also asked for a system that
would " look the part " in his
large media room, and the
Hi-Fi Centre team chose the
Mcintosh Reference System.
That includes XRT2.1K
speakers driven by MC2KW
monoblock amps; C1100
tube preamp; MX170 surround
processor; a pair of JL
Audio's big Gotham G213V2
subwoofers; and Transparent
and AudioQuest cabling.
" What makes this project
stand out is the sheer scale
of it all, " the integrator says.
" The speakers have a total
of 162 drivers, the amplifiers
comprise six chassis, each
weighing 135 pounds. However,
it sounds incredible
whether being pushed to the
limit or at conversational level. "
The owner said the sound
system was as satisfying as
BEST SHADE CONTROL PROJECT | GOLD
Quietly Impressive Shades Swap
Systems Design
& Installation
Z-Curtains
Bellevue, Wash.
FOR THIS SHADE
control project, Z-Curtains
was tasked with
replacing old and noisy
motorized shades with a
new, quieter system. The
company also needed to stay
under a " more than a
reasonable budget " and use
as few motors as possible.
Z-Curtains enlisted Somfy
solutions to achieve the
goals and create a " wow
effect " with the impressive
window treatments.
As the company describes,
the upper windows were
replaced with a new 4-inch
Fascia system along with
Somfy Sonesse RTS coupled
cepro.com
shades. Although the project
had three open window
bays, Z-Curtains was able to
utilize the quiet strength of
Somfy motorization to have
all the shades open and close
at the same time.
At the horizontal mullion
to give even more coverage,
Z-Curtains added another
set of Somfy motorized roller
shades, this time utilizing a
Somfy Sonesse Ultra RTS
motor coupled for operating
three larger window bays at
once. All shades roll up into a
4-inch Fascia system.
Lastly, as the dealer explains,
to add some softness
to the area a sheer Ripplefold
drapery was installed
and operated from a Somfy

Ultra 60 RTS track, which
allows for smooth and quiet
operation. All treatments
are controlled and operated
from a Somfy Telis 4 remote
and a Somfy Decoflex

switch. CE Pro
