Hi sadly cant make the open day but have sent you a PM for some work and changes on my current set up which you can see in my signature.
Hope to visit on another day soon.
PM replied to just now.
The rooms are looking great Rich. Sorry I'm away that weekend, otherwise I'd have come over for a nosey, will keep my eyes open for future open days.
You are welcome anytime Kelvin.
Looking forward to meeting some of you at our showroom tomorrow.
Please note that the showroom isn’t fully finished but we now have a working toilet, without a seat!!!
A new media room installation being created earlier this week. An MK Sound IW150 5.2.4 Atmos Media Room.
77” TV and custom cabinetry with a polished concrete top.
Looking forward to seeing this one take shape.
What are the room dimensions?
The room is approx 4m x 5m. It’s a knock through lounge that we are turning into a separate media room for the family. False pillars, pocket doors and cabinetry.
I won’t be attending on Saturday unfortunately.
No worries Kev. Another time maybe.
Our main Dolby Atmos cinema room.
Am sorry to say there's a bit of a monsoon where i am at the moment & as i am a motorcyclist i'd rather not turn up like a drown rat swapping my way though your lovely rooms & tbh i really don't fancy riding in this weather sorry about this maybe another time. Hope all goes well.
Its dried out but it's a little late in the day again apologies for not making this next time.
Just got back from Richs forum day could have stayed all day but a girlfriend and 4month old baby wouldn’t have been too pleased. Anyway what can I say a huge thanks to Rich for his hospitality and fantastic demonstrations. The 2 systems I listened to was a 2.1 system in a tiny room based around a Lyngdorf 2170 2 active mk sound l&r and x10 sub. Listened to dark side of the moon sitting very close to the speakers due to the size of the room. Clarity and detail of the speakers and integration of the sub were exceptional. The bass was really tight and controlled had an almost pressurised feeling in the room. Most of the listening was done in the main demo room. An Atmos system of mk sound 300 series speakers 2 mk sound x12 subs using lyngdorf processing and amplification. The usual suite of films were used Gravity, ready player one, bohemian rhapsody, Hans zimmer, mad max, John wick, blade runner 2029 and some Gregory Porter. All the films had amazing clarity and immersion. All the speakers disappeared and the bass was seamless. I suppose my biggest take away was the first 10 mins of blade runner. The feeling of that bass really controlled ominous feeling as it pressurised the room. Whatever room perfect does with its magic to integrate those 2 x12 monsters just works. Anyway thanks again Rich and it’s no wonder your so busy !!!!!
Thanks for the bacon sandwich as well !!!!
An absolute pleasure and thanks to all for the great feedback. It was an enjoyable day.
We spent a couple of hours re calibrating the system after everyone had left as the system is now well and truly run in.
I can say the main cinema room is now performing at an even higher level now. Once the showroom is fully finished in a couple of months time, we will host another forum day and this time lots of music will be demonstrated. Who says cinema can’t play music...........
Thanks guys for hosting an enjoyable get together. The demos were very entertaining and the main cinema room was superb. The MP50 blew my socks off and is definitely on the upgrade shortlist now.
The hardest thing for me was coming home and putting a film on to rediscover the flaws in my system that I'd previously managed to forget (mainly due to room limitations and needing a better sub or two). As soon as my move is complete I'll be in the market for a proper cinema room fitout, although I'm not sure if a job in Exeter is on patch for you chaps!?
Separately, I really enjoyed meeting a few members - I didn't catch all of your usernames but it was a good day out, cheers.
A pleasure sir. Glad you enjoyed the day and hope it was food for thought.
Exeter is absolutely fine
Great to see you all and I’m really glad you had a snapshot of what Seriously Cinema have to offer. Richard is really picky in terms of product choice and this combined with the incredible skills that Quite Interiors have for acoustics, fabric walling, fibre optic lighting etc. make them a great choice for anyone wanting a cinema with the absolute best performance and finish.
If you’re in the market for this sort of system, please book a visit and go check out any alternatives. I think you’ll find the difference will be very obvious to see and hear.
Richard and the Team are really busy with some really incredible cinemas and whole house projects that has meant they have little time to finish off the showroom. In the evening Ross, Rich and I finally had the time for a more critical listen to the cinema and all agreed the bass was a bit fat.
We tried a change in crossover settings and a recalibration and it absolutely transformed the system. Faster, tighter, punchier and cleaner…… From maxing out film volume at -10db, we were all grinning like crazy listening to music at +10db – a sure some that everything is sounding the way it should.
This really highlights how important it is to have someone involved in your projects whop is really familiar with what a great cinema system can do. The time to spent recalibrating a system when things have run in and also having the time to experiment with different setting is essential.
This is very rarely done which is a shame because it can transform things.
The active MK 2510p system was quickly set up in the morning and while it sounded really clear and clean, its not a patch on how it should be. There are a few changes needed to its set up that Rich will be trying later this week and then this system should be ready to go.
Rich – I think we need to get another date pencilled in for say September for the next Forum meet?
PS Thanks once again to Ross a.k.a Rock Danger. He spent years in pro audio and while I hate to say it, he’s normal spot on with anything relating so sound.
His politics on the other hand………..
Thanks for the kind words Rob. Appreciated. Also thanks for your help on Saturday with the dems and spending the time with me to recalibrate the main cinema room.
We’ve still got a lot to do to get the showroom finished but as you say, we are very busy with installations at the moment and for the next few months.
I definitely will be holding another forum open day towards the end of September beginning of October.
Thanks again to all that came along.
Just out of interest what did you change the crossovers from and to ?
80hz to 125hz LCR and 100hz surrounds/heights.
I heard the re-calibrated system last night and the Bohemian Rhapsody Live Aid scenes sounded stunning. The bass was to die for (and I have dual X10's at home with the MP-50) but the X12's in that room were soo clean and tight it was genuinely like being there.
The industry is pushing cinema designers to recommend more and more speakers, in rooms with more and more treatment. I think this system shows that you really don’t need either.
Expert, independent research shows that to faithfully reproduce a sense of “being there” requires over 1000 speakers which is obviously impractical.
The other alternative is not to over dampen the room so that you’ll hear some reflections from the walls etc. This fills in any gaps in the soundstage that you’d otherwise hear while helping to make the location of the speakers disappear.
I really think acoustic treatment has taken over from overpriced cables as this decades snake oil.
And by the way, if you want your surround system to sound great for stereo you definitely don’t want loads of room treatment.
