The Home Entertainment Show 2013

Last month, we attended The Home Entertainment (T.H.E.) Show in Orange County, California, where we partnered with The Lotus Group who used our Audiophile First Aid Kit (AFAK) to optimize the room for their high-resolution loudspeaker systems. Utilizing top-tier components from our Dimension4™ Symphony system, our Audiophile First Aid Kit is a premium-grade acoustical tuning system that improves accuracy, focus, and tonal balance.

Joe Cohen at The Lotus Group was happy with the results of our AFAK - as were numerous journalists and reviewers - check out the kudos below!

"Another tip of the hat to The Lotus Group and their stunning performance..." Neil Gader The Absolute Sound

Also at T.H.E. Show, Anthony Grimani conducted two seminars on Listening Room Tuning Techniques. Anthony's in-depth courses on acoustical room design, listening room tuning, and more, are available to MSR dealers and distributors who want to provide comprehensive training for their technical and sales staff.

High Performance Installations

At 7th Street Media Station in Santa Monica, California, MSR was brought in to help the client convert a large open space into a multi-purpose room. The new room incorporates (1) a voiceover and control space, (2) multichannel mixing and sound production, (3) green-screen soundstage, and (4) a cool hang-out lounge. MSR engineered the solution, created the plans, and supplied a combination of SõN Acoustics and  ZSound Ensemble modules to tune the space for all of its applications.

According to Mark Viehas, "The initial listening experience has been remarkable. In a hybrid film editorial /shoot /record and mix room designed to be flexible, spacious and above all comfortable over a long day, Tony has created a sound environment that's spot-on from all angles."

Infinity Custom Systems of San Jose, California chose a Dimension4 Sonata 250 system to tune the acoustics of a home theater remodel. MSR helped design the space and supplied the acoustical tuning system. Specifying this kind of space was almost effortless using Dimension4 as it was designed: measure the space and pick the appropriate system for its size, it's really that easy! PMI's chief engineer Manny LaCarrubba did the audio calibration.

In Northern California, integrator Home Theater Solutions (HTS) reached out to PMI to help engineer the interior acoustics of their client's new home cinema. After extensive analysis of the room's acoustical properties, PMI specified a customized Dimension4™ Symphony system including C-Fuser 2D diffusers, Tri-Fuser 3D diffusers, and a selection of absorbers to tame the room's characteristic thumbprint. We put SpringTraps in the front corners of the room to damp the low frequency standing wave energy and keep it from muddying up the prodigious Meridian speakers.

At the end of the installation, Anthony Grimani was on-site to configure the Meridian 861 ultra high-end surround decoder, and tune the room correction system for smooth bass and best speaker integration. But it wasn't easy. This is the kind of project where MSR's engineering expertise was needed to resolve some unique complexities which installers and integrators are not always able to do on their own. It's where our team excels, and where we can provide tremendous added-value for projects that demand premier performance and functionality.

MSR Acoustics Supports Sioux City Boys Club

Pflanz Electronics chose a Dimension4 Sonata 250 system to outfit the Sioux City Boys Club theater room. According to Vance Pflanz "It was our first Dimension4 installation and our technicians were very proud of their work. Listening to the 7.1 surround system before the Sonata 250 installation - and after - was an amazing enhancement to the room. It not only greatly improved the sound, but is also aesthetically appealing to people when they walk into the theater room. We have received many positive comments."
