Connected Distribution opens new demonstration cinema

The new Connected Cinemas is a demonstration cinema in Cheltenham, UK.

The purpose of the new demo room is to focus on the provision of the ‘Cinema In The Home’ model for domestic cinema installations, which was introduced at the EI Live exhibition. The demo cinema has been designed to present the mainstays of the company’s cinema offering – Aurea loudspeakers and Acurus electronics  to installers and retailers. The 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos cinema has been built to show off the audio performance that this combination of products achieves.

The Connected Cinemas demo facility is permanently equipped with the Aurea In-wall series 6+6 model for the LCR channels, IW 5+5 model for the side and rear surrounds and the Coaxial 5 model for the four height channels. Two Sub 12 in-wall subwoofers are employed, taking the LF response down to 23Hz. The total system is capable of a maximum continuous SPL in excess of the 105dB Dolby specification.

 Processing is done using the Acurus Muse, a 16-channel processor while power amplification comes from the Acurus M8 eight-channel power amplifiers, delivering 200 watts per channel. The room has been calibrated using the Acurus AspeQT speaker parameter and EQ tool, a four-microphone system that enables the room to be tuned to the required target EQ curve. 

In addition to the Aurea and Acurus brands, Connected Cinemas also specifies and distributes Euroscreen screens, Yamaha AVRs and Parasound amplification. These products can also be demonstrated in the Connected Cinemas room.
