Are You Ready For Your Clients Demanding Immersive Music Mixing? 

The way we listen is changing. Our modern ears demand a more immersive sound, one that places the instruments and vocals in defined three-dimensional space. The movies we watch, the video games we play all put us into the soundscape; we are part of the experience. Music, with a few exceptions, has resisted, holding tight to our outdated stereo channel mentality. 

While 5.1 recordings never quite gained a foothold with the public or artists, the promise of a complete soundscape never diminished. Dolby Atmos is changing how musicians, engineers, and the listening public want to hear music. Streaming services like TIDAL, Amazon HD music currently support the format, with more platforms planning rollout in the coming year. 

The demand for your professional recording studio setup to support Dolby Atmos is growing. Is your Fort Lauderdale, FL location ready?  Perhaps you also have other studios throughout the world: The good news is we operate nationally and globally. Want to learn how the format will get you to the next level?

AWARD-WINNING HOME THEATERS ARE ONE CALL AWAY

LEARN HOW A PROFESSIONAL INTEGRATOR COMBINES RECORDING STUDIO EXPERIENCE AND INDUSTRY-LEADING SMART HOME TECHNOLOGY FOR THE ULTIMATE HOME THEATER.

Movies are a unique medium, one that takes up all the senses and stirs the soul. The film medium has been described as storytelling combined with painting, photography, music, dance, and theater. A film is powerful magic, making us cheer, cry, and laugh -- often all at the same time.

The cinema itself can be thought of as a temple dedicated to the singular act of being transported. The art form deserves more than an insufficient screen with less than stellar sound. Bob Balaban, the actor and producer, sums this feeling up nicely:

“I mean, the whole idea of movies was it was special to go to see - you went to a movie theater to see something that was magical and amazing, in a very special location.”

Read on to learn how our home theater systems exceed your expectations for your Naples, FL, entertainment space.

Why You Shouldn’t Use a Soundbar in a High-End Home Theater

CINEAK-cosymo-fortuny2

For rumbling bass and realistic sound effects, you’ll need better audio.

People are drawn to soundbars for many reasons. For one, they’re a one-piece audio solution that’s quick to install under the TV or projector screen. And they provide more robust sound than a TV’s built-in speakers. They can look cool depending on the TV, final design, and installation aesthetic.  However, it’s best to avoid using one in a high-end home theater design.

While soundbars improve upon TV audio, they won’t provide the immersive wow-factor you desire in a home cinema. It’s best to use a soundbar in the bedroom, kitchen, or other non-primary viewing spaces.

For a home theater, you’d be cutting yourself short not to use a receiver, proper loudspeakers, and a subwoofer for a Dolby ATMOS surround sound setup. As a luxury home theater designer based in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and cities worldwide, we’ll share why you should avoid soundbars and how to experience high-end Dolby ATMOS surround sound in your home.

Why You Need an Experienced Studio Contractor to Design Your Recording Space
