Manhasset, N.Y.
High-Performance AV Well Hidden
THE IDEA OF PROVIDING a stealth home theater
system in an open floor plan with minimal aesthetic
intrusion was a daunting task, as Audio Breakthroughs worked
through in this project. As the company's Spencer Clark asks,
how does an integrator balance the customer's wish for a
big-screen projection system with reference-level sound and
video while having the system blend into the room?
In this case, he explains, the solution involves utilizing custom
cabinetry, a motorized projector lift/screen and automation.
" Given this is a summer home with no basement, we had
to balance aesthetics with the client's desire for a state-ofthe-art
home theater system. Creating a stealth design with
amazing performance was not easy, " Clark explains.
A creative furnishings solution incorporating a Future
Automation projector lift allowed for a home theater system
featuring a 135-inch Screen Innovations projection screen, JVC
projector and GoldenEar Technology Dolby Atmos system to
be kept of sight when not in use.
" We created a custom cabinet design to house all the
equipment while offering a combination of great acoustics for
high-performance speakers with a stealth appearance. The
GoldenEar speakers offer great dynamics and clarity. In combination
with the Anthem processing we were able to effectively
leverage their proprietary ARC [Anthem Room Correction] calibration
system to compensate for the acoustic environment
of the room, " Clark says.
The GoldenEar setup includes Triton One.R towers, Invisa
650 in-ceilings and SuperCenter Reference channel, plus
SuperSub XXL.
Audio Breakthroughs used a 75-inch Samsung TV with high
brightness and excellent glare coating for daytime viewing. At
night the same room transforms into a projection system using
a JVC DILA projector and SI motorized Slate screen.

The Lutron shades help limit reflectivity, and the Future
Automation lift provides enough room to house the projector
while fitting in a compact ceiling design, Clark explains.
" In working with the cabinet-maker, we were able to create
a design which not only blends into the environment of the
room but also offers state-of-the-art performance in both day
and night viewing. Hours and hours were spent configuring
the cabinet to house all the AV equipment with proper ventilation,
the motorized screen which falls perfectly in front of
the TV and acoustic transparent grille material to not compromise
the audio performance. "
Clark reports the level of performance " blew away the client's
expectations all while being easy to use and aesthetically
pleasing. " CE Pro
