From Lens to Living Room, No One Knows Cinema Like Sony
In consumer electronics, it is easier than ever to build a new product. But some companies sweat all the details, pouring money into research and development to bring innovations to market first. They don’t settle for off-the-shelf components; they build their own to bring that extra edge to their products.
In the consumer electronics world, that company is Sony. The long list of firsts they have developed is much too long to discuss here. Their expertise in audio and video technology is unparalleled. They are also unique in that the company also owns significant pieces of the content side of the business. They have the most holistic view of what it takes to deliver an exceptional aural and visual experience from the creative side all the way to a cinema, your home theater, or your TV.
Why does that matter? Because it’s all in the details.
Sony understands the challenges of recreating the experience that the movie producers envisioned in your own living room. So if you are looking for a new projector – or an upgrade – to your home theater or media room in the Sandy Springs area, we’re going to explain why it should be a Sony.

Optimize the Audio in Your Home Theater Installation Without Sacrificing Style
It’s rare to have the perfect acoustic environment during a home theater installation. Every installation will have a few acoustic issues to address, whether it has to do with the shape of the room or the wall material. Two primary things will affect the sonic performance in your home: speaker placement and acoustic treatments.
Here, we’ll focus primarily on the latter and how acoustic treatments help to create a more immersive viewing experience in your Metro Atlanta home theater, whether you live in Dunwoody or beyond. Eliminating acoustic issues shouldn’t come at the expense of your theater aesthetics, though. Which is why we partner with Acoustic Innovations. Their WallScapes come in various shapes, sizes, and colors to fit your unique interior design preferences.
The B&W 800 Series Diamond Is a Work of Audio and Visual Art
Audio enthusiasts know the Bowers & Wilkins brand (B&W) as one of the finest names in loudspeakers. For over half a century, the company has produced transducers of uncompromised quality, starting with the first hand-built units in the back of an electrical shop in West Sussex, England. Bowers & Wilkins speakers are known for reproducing accurate, natural sound – the type that music lovers here in Metro Atlanta appreciate because it does not color the audio, presenting the music in the way the artist intended.
The 800 Series Diamond line is part of B&W’s flagship range that is a full line of speakers, from bookshelf to center-channel to floor standing models, addressing any audio application with aplomb. Unlike other manufacturers, B&W doesn’t believe that speakers are designed specifically for music or movies. Any speaker should be able to handle the dynamic range of both, and the 800 Series Diamond is right at home in a high-end custom home theater as well as a dedicated 2-channel listening room. The 800 Series can deliver the thundering, low-end bass needed for movie effects, while also making Nora Jones' sultry voice float in the room as if she was live.
Read on to learn more about some of the B&W 800 Series Diamond speakers, the perfect upgrade for your Metro Atlanta home cinema or listening room.
Sony’s VPL-VW295ES Ushers In Affordable, High-Performance 4K Projection
Why do you love your home cinema? Is it the luxury of having a huge screen at home, or the lack of sticky floors and overpriced concessions? Most likely you would rank both of those benefits highly. There’s nothing like being able to settle in to watch a movie or a show in your very own space with incredible sight and sound, with all the comforts of home.
If you already have a custom home theater, you may be lacking one thing. You might have a 1080P HD projector, but you’d really like to upgrade to 4K to take advantage of the new 4K streaming shows on Netflix and Ultra HD Blu-ray movies, with their much higher contrast and detail. Perhaps you have also been wondering why 4K flat-panel TVs are now very affordable, but 4K projectors prices have stayed in the stratosphere. The answer to the pricing is that projectors don’t sell in nearly the same volumes as TVs, so the cost curve of new technology diminishes more slowly for projectors.
If you’ve been waiting to pull the trigger on a 4K projector to complete your theater, or you were waiting for an affordable 4K model to build a new one, we have good news for you. As a longtime Sony Diamond dealer, we partner with Sony for projectors because of their leadership in projection technology. In 2003, they were the first to introduce a full HD projector for home use. In 2011, they launched the first 4K projector for home use. And now, with the VPL-VW295ES, they are introducing a truly affordable 4K home theater projector that doesn’t skimp on features or performance.
Read on to learn more about the VPL-VW295ES to see if it’s the right fit for the custom home theater in your Vinings residence.
