Rated as the ultimate network component manufacturer, the internet's backbone is run on Cisco switches and routers. An engineer's component that when professionally installed and configured is absolutely bullet proof. As a Cisco Partner and approved installer we use their products exclusively in our network installations and with remote access we can securely support your installation to provide rapid response to any minor system hiccup.
We have tried and tested a number of universal control systems and have found that Control4 is the easiest, most user friendly system to operate and the one most of our clients find the nicest to use. Also, from a system design point, device drivers for all the components we specify and use are available for a Control4 system so we know that all the components in a system will work seamlessly together. We even have drivers for your smart phone so you can control your media system directly from your iPhone or iPad.
Sonos is a recent market entry with their wireless multi room audio systems. We use these in properties where cabling is difficult to run or disruption has to be kept to an absolute minimum. These systems also support the latest audio streaming channels such as Spotify or Napster so personalised playlists can be set up and played in any room in the house, depending on configuration.
As a budget multimedia receiver we feel there is no better value for money than Denon. With 9.1 surround sound and up to 160 watts per channel and an abundance of possible interface configurations we feel these units cater for the majority of our installs.

Wisdom Audio was founded in 1996 with one goal in mind, to create the world's finest loudspeakers unbound by limitations of current technologies and past design. Wisdom's proprietary large scale thin film planar-magnetic transducers, electronic crossovers in place of passive designs, and innovative woofer designs were all developed to solve problems inherent in the limitations of traditional designs and how they interact with the listening room. The result is an experience like no other.
