With trips to the Expert Installers fading in popularity and new films typically released onto blu-ray shortly after they’ve left the big screen, it makes sense to create a dedicated home theatre. But it is not an easy undertaking and requires a professional to get the best results. Leeds home technology specialists Finite Solutions has just won a major accolade in this field by winning a ‘Best Cinema Room between PS40,000 and PS100,000’ award at the CEDIA international home entertainment awards.
The company took on the challenge of converting what was previously a billiards room into a home cinema, and worked to a very strict brief from the client. The client was a huge music and movie fanatic who demanded a system that would deliver image and sound performance that was simply outstanding.

Finite Solutions’ design team used 3D modeling to sculpt the room and ensure the optimum acoustic performance. The speaker setup includes a 7.2 speaker array with front left, right and centre channels from Linn’s Akurate range and dual subwoofers. A top-of-the-line Anthem AVM 50v processor ties the system together with its ARC room EQ and twin bespoke DSPs.
All of the hardware is hidden behind custom cabinetry to keep it discreet and avoid detracting from the impressive picture on the big screen. An Apple TV set-top box, Canal+ satellite receiver and a Playstation are connected to the system for complete entertainment flexibility. To further improve the user experience, all of the hardware was connected to a Control 4 system for ease-of-use and joined-up functionality.
