We just finished up an audio visual system rehab in Pewaukee, Wisconsin. The photos below show the first part of the system update; we’ll post additional photos of this project, and the other work done, shortly.
We installed 65 inch Samsung TV with an upgraded SnapAV sound bar above the fireplace, while incorporating other components into the built-in bookcase. This new equipment replaced two old bookshelf front speakers. Additionally we added a sub woofer to the system improving the sound quality dramatically. The components for the sound bar system are designed to interact wirelessly to the sub so there’s no need to run a cable from one to the other.
We added the MX HomePro controller, a universal remote control, giving the homeowner control of all the equipment behind the closed doors of the cabinet from one interface. This remote control also allows you to keep up to eight of your favorite apps—such as Facebook and other lifestyle apps—in a scrolling bar to easily launch in a snap.
Finally in this area we replaced an old receiver that didn’t have any music streaming capabilities, with a new current Yamaha RXV683. The new Yamaha receiver comes equipped with Yamaha streaming application “Music Cast” allowing the client to turn on and off his equipment, and select music streaming choices, directly from his phone or universal remote control.
The client was extremely happy that we were able to utilize his existing equipment, giving us the ability to deliver key features the client was looking for, while updating to current technology, and only purchasing new equipment where necessary.
