I had big plans for my media room. I had just purchased the house and though there was a room designated as a “media room”, it was really no where near what I was dreaming of. It was the wrong shape, to start with, and had a support wall right where the couch needed to be. It had no AV equipment in it at all and to top it off, the house came with a tenant whose bedroom was on the other side of one wall and her kitchen on the other. I could hear our new tenant speaking in a normal voice on the day we moved in. Sounds like a non starter right? I ended up with the best home theatre set up ever! Every dream came true and even exceeded my expectations. How? It was the great team we had working on making it all happen, Headed up by Miro from Blue Home Theatre.
First of all, I have to give a shout out to the previous owner of my new house, Jerry and his contractor Caesar. When we identified that the room needed some serious construction including moving a support wall he simply said no problem and worked out how to do it. He brought in Caesar to do the work and wow, did he ever do an awesome job!! But it was Miro who designed the room and worked throughout the construction to make sure everything was “just right”. He researched everything there is to know about soundproofing and came up with a design, purchased all the materials, and installed the whole thing. I talked Miro into letting me get my hands dirty and he was patient and accommodating, explaining everything and answering all my questions. It felt like we were collaborating on building my dream together, and Miro helped me to make it real. His knowledge is that of a complete fan of all things Audio/Visual combined with the business sense to know the value of a dollar. Basically, Miro treated my project as if it was his own dream too. You could see him thinking about the tiniest detail and how to address it like absolutely every step and every piece of work was critical. From wrapping the power boxes in sound stopping clay, to glueing and stapling the base deadening sheets that attached to the studs before installing the silent clips. He confidently solved every problem and challenge that came up. Miro’s son came in to help out and was a joy to be around. I was almost disappointed when it was all done as it felt like our extended family was going back home.
I got everything I wanted. A projector that could do 4K movies while being able to play console and PC games, and both with brilliant colour and great clarity. My screen is 10 feet diagonal and almost takes up the entire wall but has just the right space for speakers on either side. It’s perfect and the projector has the ability to change aspect ratios from one button. It sounds like a theatre experience, but better! Clearer with the sound separation ration so big, my small room feels like it just disappears and I am in the movie or game. All I can say is WOW! My wife still can’t believe we pulled it off and loves to cuddle up for a movie in our new space. My tenant is happy and doesn’t hear much at all even when we are watching the latest action flick.
I cannot recommend Miro and Blue Home Theatre enough! I got so very lucky when I ended up with Miro to help me make my home theatre dream come true. Thank you Miro, whoever gets you next is a lucky lucky person.
