An understated but elegant system starring Rotel receivers and Savant control gives this Manhattan apartment some swagger.

Picture this: a primo apartment near New York City's Central Park and sporting some grand views of the city. All one needs is some music, video and a control system to add the necessary background ambiance. And the apartment was even gutted for renovations, which usually makes an installation easier.

But a gut renovation in a high-rise New York City apartment can be a challenge for builders, architects, and interior designers alike. It is even more so for an audio-video contractor who is consulted late in the game. So electronics system installer Home Theater of Long Island (HTOLI) armed itself with a slick control system and some audio/video economy to provide an understated but powerful system.
