  • Monitor Audio Platinum loudspeakers

     

    We have been thoroughly enamoured of the Monitor Audio Platinum Speakers since they were released in 2009. These top of the range UK loudspeakers are in the class of B&W 800 series or Kef Blades but without the punitive monetary imposition of those brands marketing efforts.

    Physically the Platinum series is beautiful. That combination of high mass burnished and curved wood finish cabinetry offset by the rich Strathspey leather baffle frontage is a unique aesthetic that also smells good. Often these highly engineered loudspeakers can be intimidating for a home but the Platinums have an Aston Martin aura that complements a nice room and can help swing the important domestic partner permissioning for such an acquisition.

  • Loewe Television ... the best TV you can get ...

    There is a reason why Loewe Televisions exist. It's a question that people are very justified in asking as they are substantially more expensive than a regular Asian brand. 

    A simple answer is that Loewe Televisions are to other brands the in the same relationshop that BMW and Mercedes are to Hyundai and Great Wall. The reality is that there are actually greater differences in technological quality between a Loewe and those others than is evident in the automobile analogy.

  • The Fairhaven pole house

     

    The Pole House is a distinctive part of the landscape on the Great Ocean Road here in Victoria. One of Australia's smartest people bought it when it finally came up for sale by the original pylon engineer who had built it initially in the 1960s. Like many people who actually do something really useful for society this gentleman is incredibly modest and unassuming but has an unbridled love for good music and video.

    We were called in at the early stages to conceptualise and iterate the audio visual systems and automation. Peculiar to this residence is the fact that the Pole House itself is available for lease to holidaymakers and needs to be able to operate both independantly and contiguously with the new primary residence that has been constructed on the hillside behind it.

    The home systems are operated via Control4, this automation product that Carlton Audio Visual has been purveying and installing since 2004 is now Australia's leading home integration system for combining all of your lighting, AV control, HVAC and other functions with elegance and simple accesability.
