Home Cinema in Victorian Splendour
Keeping the peace in the butler’s quarters of a 36 bedroom Victorian mansion in Northumberland, was one of the challenges facing home cinema specialists DSE Group.
A top-end home cinema was part of the Gateshead-based custom installer’s assignment which included complete renovation of the cinema room.
However, the butler’s rooms were directly above a top end home cinema housing a powerful 7.2 system and Acoustiblok technicians were consulted on how sound transference could be prevented.
As a result, a cell within a cell construction was created with walls and ceiling fully lined with Acoustiblok’s high performance 3mm sound insulation membrane and QuietFibre cavity insulation.
“The results are fantastic, you cannot hear the cinema from upstairs even when it is used to reference level and we are talking about an install with 2.3 kilowatts of music power.
It means the client can use the system to the full with confidence.”
