Home Cinema | House System 3


The M&K300 Series is the new reference point for state of the art mixing, post production and home cinema applications. Building on the strengths of the iconic 150 system the new 300 series provides even greater power, detail and control.

Combined with the ground breaking Sony VPL VW1100ES that provides 4 times the resolution of 1080p projectors, this is a surround system without equal. Now permanently installed at Gecko’s listening room, we highly recommend a demonstration of this extraordinary system with a minimum of 4 X12 subwoofers to hear it at its very best.

M&K surround systems are used by 20th Century Fox, Dolby Labs, DreamWorks, DTS, HBO, Lucasfilm, Paramount, Sony Music, Sony Pictures, Skywalker Sound, Universal Studios, Walt Disney and Warner Bros.

Screen: Seymour AV Widescreen Screen, up to 5M wide £2,895

The correct projection screen is essential to achieving both the best picture and sound quality. With a large screen it is essential that the centre speaker is perfectly located behind the centre of the screen so that voices come from the actors not below or above them. To do this correctly requires a woven screen material that allows sound to pass while reflecting light back.

Until now woven screens have been very expensive while reducing picture brightness and detail. Seymour AV screens are high-gain so pictures remain bright and detailed while sound quality is assured. We highly recommend a viewing of this Blu Ray player, projector and screen combination – you’ll be knocked out by what you see!

Audio Visual Processor: Marantz Dolby AV7702 MK2 – £1,695

Do not be put off by the remarkable price of this superb Dolby Atmos ready processor. Marantz’s new pre amplifier delivers everything required for the finest surround sound performance.

Power Amplifier: 8 x Lyngdorf SDA2400 – £15,960

M&K’s 300 Series loudspeakers provide a transparency that is rare among home cinema loudspeakers. Their remarkable efficiency means they can provide remarkable output when powered by affordable Receivers but to hear them at their best, Lyngdorfs new digital amplifiers are our first choice.

Just 1U high these amplifiers are a product developed for the most critical audiophile applications, however with 400w power deliver they are the perfect complement for home cinemas where very high power handling is required.

Front Speakers: M&K S300 LCR’s – £7,350 for three

TheThe S300 is the new industry standard for post-production, editing and the highest performance surround sound playback. At 94db efficiency it is perfectly suited for use in reference quality cinemas and can be stacked for use in the largest of spaces. If you are looking for the finest surround system we highly recommend auditing this remarkable new monitoring system.

Rear speakers: : M&K S300T – £3,400 pair

The matching Tripolar speakers for the S300 front monitors; this patented Tripolar speaker is the finest surround speaker available. Providing the detail of a direct radiating speaker with the envelopment of a bipolar, no other surround speakers are capable of creating such a life like 360 degree soundstage.

Optional Atmos Height Speakers: M&K S300T – £3,400 pair

Dolby Atmos is the latest development in home cinema. In the past surround sound has been limited to 2D with sounds coming from front to back and both sides of you. Dolby Atmos allows the use of height speakers to create a truly three dimensional sound.

The M&K 300T’s are the perfect speaker for Dolby Atmos thanks to their Tripolar dispersion characteristics. Mounted on the ceiling, the speakers fire down the full length of the room without their location becoming distraction. Use in pairs adding 2, 4 or 6 above you for the ultimate surround sound experience.

Subwoofers: M&K X12 x 8 £25,600

The X12 subwoofer was designed as part of the professional 150 system. M&K invented active subwoofers for use with their satellite speakers over 40 years ago and the pedigree shows when you hear these subs. Unlike most subwoofers which may give plenty of boom at the expense of detail, these subs are as fast and articulate as the studio monitors they are designed to partner. For music or movies these subs are the perfect partner to any speaker system. The use of 8 subwoofers provides truly subterranean bass in the largest of rooms. A demonstration of this remarkable system is highly recommended.

Installation Includes:

Surface mounting of all cables and speakers, projector and screen. Video calibration optimised to Digital Video Essentials standards.

System Options:

Option 1: Dolby Atmos

Dolby decoding has been at the heart of every home cinema for decades. Atmos is Dolby’s latest decoding system which allows the reproduction of 3 dimensional sounds with the addition of speakers above the listener.

While special effects seem far more real, it is the sense of the space that a film was made in that makes Dolby Atmos so compelling. Imagine the different acoustics created by a cathedral, a stadium, or a submarine. The same sound you would hear in any of these spaces can now be faithfully reproduced thanks to Dolby Atmos making it a must have addition to any high performance home cinema.

Option 2: Stealth Option

All our house systems use compact satellite speakers that are designed to be used with separate subwoofers. This is how professional surround systems are designed as this approach provides the most consistent performance in any room. The in wall version of the speakers we use provide near identical performance to the in room speakers. For the highest quality sound with the most discrete installation these in wall system are the perfect solution. Please note additional installation charges typically apply.

Option 3: Motorised Screens

Our motorised projection screens are simply the best available. Acoustically transparent screens are essential to allow the perfect placement of the centre speaker. Our screens use the only woven fabric that doesn’t sacrifice picture brightness or sound quality. Where motorised drop down screens are required our screens are also unique in using a matt fabric velvet border to frame the picture for the highest contrast images available.

Option 4: ISF Video Calibration

Where rooms can be darkened our combination of Blue Ray player, projector and screen will give the best possible performance. All video systems are calibrated to Video Essentials standards but where optimal video quality must be ensured, we provide ISF video calibration using state of the art test equipment.
