Some of you may have noticed the changes going on here at Sound Expression.
We've been shuffling things around in the shop, if you haven't been by in a while, you should! There's been a lot of work creating a visual 'flow', allowing some of the products to have a little bit more space, and giving ourselves the ability to quickly connect and demonstrate almost anything in the shop.
Some Q Acoustics on wall speakers were installed in Demo Lounge 1 to provide demonstration of 5.1 with compact speakers. We've also used the London Acoustic Panels on the wall to control some of the odd acoustics in the smaller room. There is a stereo on the right hand side of the room as well, allowing us to easily put together a couple of components for stereo demonstrations. Soon we will be adding some in wall speakers to further showcase our abilities with custom installation.
Demo lounge 2 has had some acoustic treatment in the form of the Diffuser panels from Acoustic Architecture. These help immensely with controlling some of the stray reverberations in the space, which makes a big difference for stereo listening as well as home theatre. The projector in this space will be moved to the back of the room, and in the future will be complimented with both a fixed frame screen and a motorized screen that will roll away when not in use.
View of the front of Demo Lounge 1 as it stands now. A little bit of paint, some furniture, and some acoustic treatment goes a long way.
And here you can see some more of the acoustic treatment in the space. The couch is easily moveable to give you a nice comfortable seat for listening to the Home Theater system or the stereo.
I just wanted to tidy up Demo Lounge 2 a bit! We ended up pulling a lot of the old infrastructure out and adding in some new speaker cabling and some network resources as well.
