The centerpiece of the system is a high performance flatpanel TV of appropriate size which can be mounted on a variety of brackets and articulating arms. The system also includes a 5.1 or 7.1 channel surround-sound speaker system comprised of front left, center, and right channel speakers (size and type TBD), left and right rear channel and effects speakers and single or multiple powered subwoofers for rich, full bass tone. We recommend subwoofers that can take up minimal cubic feet and are less intrusive, whether they are placed openly in the room or discreetly mounted in walls or cabinetry. The system is powered by a reliable multi-channel AV receiver. The signal sources can include a Blu-ray HD DVD player and HD satellite or cable receiver. The system will be controlled by a wired/wireless remote control which can be also programmed for control of other subsystems in the room (lighting control, motorized shades). When docked in its wired station, it can also access the home's cameras. The rear channel speakers will also be wired to play music from the Whole House Multi-Room Music system when the local AV system is not in use. The components are typically mounted in a professional rack on shelving which can be mounted in millwork.
