Ready made Dolby Atmos solutions from The Multi-Room Company
The Multi-Room Company, distributor of products from Atlantic Technology, Yamaha and Earthquake Sound has created a number of dedicated Dolby Atmos packages, to bring the full Atmos experience to end users, whatever the size and scale of the installation required.
With speakers from THX Certified home cinema specialists Atlantic Technology, subwoofers from Earthquake and Atmos electronics from Yamaha, the three packages created by the product specialists at The Multi-Room Company cater for differing customer requirements.
The flagship 7.2.4 package is centred on the top of the range Yamaha RXA3040 AV amplifier, its MX-A5000 11 channel power amplifier and the BDA1040 Blu-ray player. Front left, right and centre channel speaker duties are performed by the THX Ultra 2 Atlantic Technology IWTS-30 loudspeakers, which features a rotatable mid/tweeter unit to maintain correct dispersion regardless of horizontal or vertical positioning. Four IWTS-30 SR speakers, also THX Ultra, are used for the surround and rear channels and four in-ceiling IC8.3 Tri-mode™ 8” speakers make up the .4 requirements of Dolby Atmos. Considerable low frequency energy is provided by two Earthquake Mini Me P12 subwoofers, each boasting a 12” powered driver, 12” passive radiator, 600 watts of digital amplification and a low frequency response down to 18Hz. This package is available for a retail price of under £16,000.
The second package provides a cost effective 7.1.2 custom installation solution using the Yamaha RXA2040 Dolby Atmos AV amplifier and BDS677 Blu-ray player coupled to Atlantic Technology’s THX Ultra 2 IWTS-155 left, centre, right speakers and four IWTS 14SR surround speakers. Two 6” diameter in-ceiling speakers, the IC6.3 Tri-mode™ model, are utilised for the .2 channels. Earthquake’s Mini Me P10 subwoofer, with its 600 watt amplifier, 10” bass driver and 10” passive radiator provides substantial low frequency reinforcement. Package 2 has a retail price of £7,800.
Package three is a £6,600 retail priced 5.1.4 system aimed at the user who wants a stand-alone solution that doesn’t require any structural work to be done to the room. Four Atlantic Technology THX Select Certified 4400LR floorstanding speakers provide the front left, right and rear channels, with the centre channel duties handled by the dedicated 4400C. The .4 channels are catered for by the new Atlantic Technology 44DA Dolby Atmos upward firing speakers. Low frequency effects are given the Earthquake treatment, courtesy of the Mini Me P10, subwoofer and Yamaha’s RXA2040 Dolby Atmos AV amplifier and BDS677 Blu-ray provide the signal processing and high definition image.
