AWE is delighted to announce further details of what visitors to the forthcoming AWE Expo, being held on 15th & 16th October at AWE’s show apartment in Epsom, Surrey. Here is a room by room guide to the main upgrades:
Upgraded Reference Cinema Room
This 8-seater Reference Cinema room has been reconstructed for the most immersive experience anywhere near this price point.
Now featuring a Eurosceen 4m wide ALR screen, projected onto by the recently upgraded flagship VPL-VW5000 4K laser projector from Sony, alongside their VPL-VW870. Switching between projectors, screen ratios & lens memory settings is seamless utilising URC control.
High-performance immersive audio is delivered by KEF THX & REFERENCE in-wall speakers providing an incredible reproduction of both music & movie content. Like all KEF REFERENCE speakers, the Ci5160REF come with a REFERENCE Build Certificate signed by the craftsman who built them.
Four of the Definitive Technology SuperCube 8000s deliver 6000 watts of explosive, controlled bass. Classé power amps deliver 400w per channel to the main speakers and Marantz MM8077 drives the height speakers. The Marantz AV8805 performs 13-channel processing.
Upgraded Performance Cinema Room
Designed to replicate a converted garage or spare room, visitors will be able to experience an IMAX Enhanced demonstration in the Performance Cinema. Now featuring a native 4K Sony VPL-VW-570 projector along with a Euroscreen 113” acoustically-transparent fixed-frame screen, the visuals are top class at this price point.
To complement the great visuals we’re using the AWE Exclusive Reference In-Wall speakers from Definitive Technology in an immersive 7.4.4 configuration. These speakers are fully enclosed units with a depth of less than 10 cm, meaning they will fit into standard stud walls. This even includes the awesome subwoofers, each of which houses two 10” drivers. The Marantz SR8012 AVR has enough amplification to drive all 11 speakers, with the subs powered by dedicated KEF KASA500 amplifiers.
Updated Living Room
Set up as a mid-budget, easy to install 7.2.2 media room, experience high-performance immersive audio from Definitive Technology BP9060 tower speakers. These have each have 1200 watt active subs built & partnered with the A90 atmos enabling speaker module, utilising the 65” Sony Master Series AG9 OLED TV as the centre channel. The AWE Exclusive Marantz SR5014 AVR provides power to the 7 full-range channels.
New The Den
However, at the touch of the URC desktop controller, a 104” Euroscreen in-ceiling projection screen is revealed onto which the brand NEW Epson EH-TW7100 4K PRO-UHD projects a bright crystal clear image. Also, see the NEW EH-LS500 ultra-short-throw 4K PRO-UHD laser projector.
Enhancing the decor is a dual Qmotion wire-free blind & Hue lighting.
Updated Product Gallery
The Hallway will feature a giant graphic representing a home, focussing minds on the range of products on display from Sound United brands to achieve a HEOS enabled multi-room audio solution. In the gallery, we have the latest 4K OLED TVs from Sony, LG and Panasonic alongside 4K QLED from Samsung. You’ll also get to see the latest from HDANYWHERE video distribution, & the latest brackets & 19” rack cabinet solutions from Sanus.
A dedicated Total Control 2.0 interactive demonstration including voice and IP control of Apple TV and custom device layouts from the fast-programming Accelerator software. A separate pod will show what you can achieve with all the same URC hardware, but programmed with Flex software for full graphical customisation.
Upgraded Comms Room
Take a look at where the magic happens. Alongside a display of our Kinetik range, you’ll see Sanus racks stacked full with all the control and A/V distribution equipment used throughout the AWE Show Apartment.
The audio system for the Reference Cinema also resides here. Classé power amps deliver 400w per channel to the main speakers and a Marantz MM8077 drives the height speakers. The Marantz AV8805 performs 13-channel processing & sources are the NEW 4K Pro HDR DPUB9000 Blu-Ray player from Panasonic & UBPX1100ES from Sony.
