In this installation, the client wanted to have their home theater be almost invisible or "stealth" solution - but without compromising the quality of sound. If you look closely you can see the REVEl bookshelf speakers placed on stands that flank the fireplace hearth. We hid the REVEL subwoofer behind the large fern on the far right. We placed the receiver in the utility / HVAC closet and the control was handled by CRESTRON. All the high-tech clutter of receivers, cable box, DVR, DVD, CD player were all hidden, but always at hand via the remote control. Since the client did not want the visual clutter of a center-channel speaker, the receiver was set to "phantom" mode and with the high dispersion of the REVEL speakers, the acoustic performance was excellent. While we do encourage the use of dedicated center-channel speakers, there are often excellent solutions to create the home theater that perfectly fit your style.
