Show Notes

We turn the spotlight on all things audio with the help of Pip Evans, the main man at London-based NV Integration and Barry Sheldrick, Sales Director at Meridian Audio. What are customers looking for when they listen to music in the home? Is it all about convenience or is quality making a comeback? What role does content have to play in the discussion? And, how can we persuade customers about the benefits of great sound in a media room and home cinema set up? We also look at two demo options for installation businesses without their own dedicated showroom space. Can a showroom collaboration with an interior designer work for your business? And, what are brands doing to support installers in selling their services? Make sure you also listen out for a second chance to enter our competition to win a Sony Home Cinema Projector, retailing at £5,000 from podcast supporter, AWE. This episode is brought to you from the home of hi-res audio, the Meridian Reference Theatre at the company's HQ near Cambridge.

Sponsored by Meridian Audio and AWE, The Integrated Home is a Wildwood and Alfi Media Production.

Lighting, Awards and Experience Centres

We examine the big issue of lighting in the company of Homeplay’s Managing Director, James Ratcliffe, alongside Nic Black, Principal of The Pyramid Group. We ask how integrators can bring lighting design and lighting control into their business. What's involved and how will embracing lighting change your business offering for the better? As the CEDIA Awards open for entry, we also talk to James and Nic about taking part in Award schemes. What does it take to win an Award and is it worth all the effort? The episode is recorded in one of the industry’s newest showroom spaces, the Homeplay Experience Centre in Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey. James tells us about the Experience Centre, explaining how it came about, how the project evolved and, now it's open, how it's working. We're very excited to launch a new, in fact, our first competition.
