Multiroom A/V Install Offers a Lot for a Little
By Arlen Schweiger
Homeowners keep budget down without compromising on their requests.

Life is sweet for these Illinois homeowners. They have five TV locations that can show Blu-ray discs, DVDs, recorded or live satellite broadcast programming and Apple TV content, yet the components reside nowhere near the flat panels.

They have 13 audio zones with loudspeakers that can play thousands of songs, yet no clutter of wires or A/V receivers can be seen. They can control all of the media from the palms of their hands, yet they don't have to juggle multiple remotes.

Most important for the owners, the aftertaste of such a widespread electronics project was unusually sweet. They got everything they hoped for, yet saved wads of cash because they were willing to make compromises that still met their A/V wishes.

Sure, that meant fancy automation systems and touchpanels were avoided; television audio actually comes through the TV speakers and not surround-sound systems; multiroom Blu-ray resolution is only 1080i instead of 1080p; and while the distributed video system can tap into multiple sources, the distributed audio system only pulls from a single source.

No matter. Such sacrifices are the furthest things from the family's mind when they're out on the patio enjoying warm weather and catching up on episodes on their DVR.

And as mentioned, that DVRalong with another one reserved just for the kidsand other electronics are kept out of sight, thanks to the handiwork of the custom electronics professionals at Audio Video Concepts (AVC) in Columbia, Ill. Everything is wired to components stowed in an OmniMount rack in the basement that serves as the brains of the home, which Audio Video Concepts outfitted while the house was under construction.
