Rob Lambert, Sevenoaks Sound and Vision
“In a small group of about 10, we started easy and then got more and more in depth into the world of designing a bespoke home cinema. This was great as the group had different levels of knowledge — one guy had literally only just started in the industry, while someone else in the group had 40 years’ experience. I have 25 years’ experience under my belt and learnt plenty from the day as AWE went into a depth of knowledge that I had never previously gone into.
It wasn’t all classroom based though. The demonstrations of the different levels of Sony projectors was great, as it gave us the chance to see that no matter how much you spend on the projector, the image just kept on getting better and better.
They also talked us through the different price levels for the home cinemas they had built, going up to the amazing KEF Reference in-wall/in-ceiling system, which was truly impressive.
All in all, a very worthwhile day — both for knowledge gained and personal experience of products I heard and saw. Clients always want to know what you think of product you don’t stock and if you would recommend them, which now I can say, ‘I would’.”
