WestCoast Hi-Fi Midland

A full-on sports bar in a shed? The team at WestCoast Hi-Fi Midland was happy to oblige.

-

With a fully-equipped bar, paired indoor-outdoor 75-inch TVs and a Yamaha/PSB sound system, this Western Australian installati­on by WestCoast Hi-Fi Midland is the place to go for the big match.

“When our client approached us about setting up a Sports Bar in his shed, I never expected it to end up this incredible,” says proprietor Scott Stay. “After seeing the quality of work from the client’s cabinetmak­er for the bar and handmade bar stools, we knew we had to provide something special.”

The big screen in the main bar can handle fast action sports from short distance, he says, while the multiroom screen operation allows expansion to the outdoor area with its large fire pit. The punchy sound solution can handle sports but then holds its own once the beer is flowing and loud music takes over. A simple Control4 system was also essential to make operation easy (sober or otherwise, Scott suggests), and as a final touch WestCoast added one of its own custom star ceilings, “just because they look so damn cool”.

 ??  ?? A cool custom star ceiling above the bar adds height and depth: “When it comes to projects like this, I would describe my job as ‘being on the forefront of coolness’,” says WestCoast Midland’s Scott Stay.

 ??  ?? An additional 75-inch Samsung QLED TV in the covered outdoor area can be enjoyed around the fire pit. This area has already hosted 100+ people for Finals night.
The audio equipment includes Yamaha’s RX-A3080 receiver for processing and power, PSB Speakers for the surround sound system and subwoofer, with Foxtel and AppleTV among the sources.
