K&W Au­dio

Best Home (Canada) - - Contents -

Proud to cel­e­brate the 40th an­niver­sary of do­ing what they love, K&W Au­dio em­pow­ers the mod­ern home by cre­at­ing whole­house man­age­ment sys­tems. Well-known for high-end home en­ter­tain­ment sys­tems and keep­ing with on­go­ing tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vances that fol­low hand-in-hand, their lat­est project em­bod­ies their pas­sion.

K&W Au­dio com­pleted some home au­to­ma­tion work for this Cal­gary fam­ily, which lead to their next project—a home the­atre for their friends, fam­ily, and es­pe­cially grand­chil­dren to en­joy. A base­ment ren­o­va­tion set the stage and the client de­cided he wanted the best home theater he could get. “Tech­ni­cally and de­sign-wise, if it was some­thing he wanted, he got it,” says owner Dar­ren Lane.

“We spent a lot of time on the de­sign and used our ex­per­tise to pro­vide a re­sult that we hoped would ex­ceed the cus­tomers’ ex­pec­ta­tions,” shares Lane. Part­ner­ing with Lo­bello Man­u­fac­tur­ing, a high-end mill­work shop, pro­lific use of ex­otic Mada­gas­car Ebony de­fines the decor with smooth styling and elec­tric ap­peal.

Equipped with mo­tion sim­u­la­tors in the cus­tom the­atre seats by D-BOX, the client also wanted a big, vi­brant im­age with pow­er­ful sound. “The speak­ers are Martin Lo­gan elec­tro­stat­ics, a high-per­for­mance au­dio­phile type of speaker. This sys­tem of­fers space, air and slam—all at the same time,” ex­plains Lane. It also fea­tures a 4K-laser pro­jec­tor with an anamor­phic lens. To­gether they de­liver the ab­so­lute best pic­ture qual­ity in the wider cin­ema as­pect ra­tio on the over eleven-foot wide screen, and the sys­tem is op­er­ated eas­ily by a Con­trol4 au­to­ma­tion sys­tem.

Over­look­ing the eye- catch­ing dé­cor, the cof­fered ceil­ing is en­hanced with beau­ti­ful wood cross beam de­tails ac­com­mo­dat­ing mul­ti­ple speak­ers for the lat­est in Dolby ATMOS sur­round sound. A full wet bar fur­ther af­fords con­ve­nience with style. “The LED light­ing sys­tem can even pro­vide any color de­sired to create the mood to match the genre of en­ter­tain­ment. Red cer­tainly looks great when view­ing Mad Max!” notes Lane.

As an ex­pe­ri­enced and knowl­edge­able provider of high-qual­ity au­dio/video so­lu­tions for decades, Lane ad­mits, “Peo­ple make tremen­dous in­vest­ments in their home, so why not present it in its best light?”
