The Audiophile offers a complete home technology design and installation service.

Let’s face it, home entertainment is considered a luxury, but that doesn’t mean it has to be
beyond your reach, difficult to use, or not suitable for your home.

Anyone, on any budget, in any style of house, can enjoy the benefits of custom electronic design
offered by The Audiophile team.



The Audiophile is committed to delivering you with the best experience in professional home entertainment
design and installation processes. The expert team will save you both time and money by taking care of the
overall design of your new system, tailored to your needs.

The Audiophile’s CEDIA (Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association) certified technicians will guide
you every step of the way as you choose suitable audio visual and security products for your home.

The team also offers a complete installation process - whether you have selected a brand new system - or
decide to integrate older devices with new products.

The best time to assess and discuss your audio visual requirements is before you start your building or
renovating process. Correct design is essential, as once the new building or renovated property is complete
it is often too late and costly to change the design.

So let The Audiophile specialists help you make informed choices about your technology systems and get
them up and running in your home or business (see our Commercial section) as soon as possible.

All you will have to do is sit back and relax as you listen to music, watch a movie, or play a game on your new
state-of-the-art home entertainment system.

Entertainment is for your enjoyment after all.

your visual experience.
Whether you opt for a 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system, the outcome will be an audio visual
experience like no other.
With most TV shows broadcasting in full 5.1 surround sound now, it’s worth installing this
sound equipment so you can appreciate and benefit from what’s being produced.
Your home theatre audio includes in-ceiling, in-wall or discreet satellite speaker options,
meaning less clutter and a visually appealing home theatre.

A home entertainment system would not be complete without television.

While TV has long been a popular device for Kiwi families, advancements in technology in
the past few years has meant selecting from the range of TVs on offer can sometimes
be overwhelming.

The Audiophile team will help you choose the most suitable viewing products.

Get the latest in high definition flat panel TV and projection technology, and benefit from
extra features such as Skype, Internet connectivity, 3D and more.

The Audiophile can point you in the right direction when it comes to selecting size,
display method, LCD, LED and Plasma or Projection.

These are the main types of visual experiences you can achieve in your own home:

Digital TV

TV has gone digital, which means better quality picture and sound with on-screen TV guides
and many other benefits.

There are two options when it comes to Digital TV:

- Satellite
This requires a satellite dish and a satellite decoder to view TV.
Freeview or Sky can both be received from satellite, but Freeview and standard Sky will
only show in standard definition via satellite. Using a MY SKY HDi decoder will mean you
can receive High Definition via satellite.

- Terrestrial

This option requires a good UHF antenna and either a TV with Freeview built in, or a
separate decoder for older TVs. Terrestrial is broadcast in High Definition, but is only
available in certain geographical areas.

HD and 3D TV

Enjoy an ultimate cinema experience in your own home by watching movies in
High Definition (HD) or even 3D to complement your 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system.
It’s paramount that the TV picture looks as good as it can, and this is why Digital HD TV
and Blu-ray movie players have become the norm.

Distributed Video

With many homes now having more than one television across multiple rooms, it’s crucial
to have the correct cabling and technological systems installed to ensure the best quality
picture anywhere in your home.
Distributed video enables you to enjoy crystal clear TV, movies and even means you can
have the ability to keep an eye on your security camera video signals, wherever you are.

High Definition can also be distributed, however, choosing the correct supplier/installer is
essential.  There are many factors other than getting a picture from A to B when dealing
with High Definition and High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI). The amount of data
between HD devices is immense and requires the correct equipment and installation to
deliver a long lasting, solid connection throughout your home.

Have full control over all your home entertainment, lighting, blinds, heating and security
systems with the touch of a button.

System control is a key component in your audio visual design and installation process.

No matter what size your home entertainment system is, it should be simple and easy to use,
with reliable centralised controls that eliminates the need for multiple remotes.

The Audiophile team are experts in home automation and control systems, offering intuitive
controls and easy to follow systems for the whole family. 



Enjoy a touch panel remote system which can be programmed to meet your individual requirements.
Home control and automation systems give you the ultimate experience in home comforts.

Use automated mood lighting control systems to adjust the level of lighting throughout the
home and outdoors to create atmosphere and save power. You can even set movie mode
lighting or dimmers to automatically come on in the evening and turn off when desired.

Multi-room audio and visual systems 
Set up control systems for your home audio and visual entertainment that,
with the simple use of the touch panel, will give you a luxury experience.
Enjoy iPod audio controls, view iPod data (album, track, title, etc) and control
distributed audio systems through the source and volume to any area of your property.
Pre-set TV channel favourites, browse the internet and even check the weather through a
centralised control system. 

At the end of the day all you will have to do is pick up the remote and get your audio visual
experience started.

Here are the different types of multi-room control systems we offer:

- Basic universal remote controls
The Audiophile have control options for any home entertainment system – of any size.
A universal remote will consolidate all your AV remote controls into one easy to use remote.
A single touch remote will enable multi-room control via a touch screen remote or
in-wall keypads.

- Infrared and RF remote controls
These allow you to control CD, DVD, Sky and other components from any room in your home.
Most remotes that come with equipment are infrared, which means you must physically point
the remote at the equipment to operate it.
However, RF (radio frequency) remotes are what we recommend, as they works around the
home, making it perfect for multi-room systems. RF also makes it possible for your system
to be stored neatly away, out of sight, while you can control it from anywhere.

Use centralised control systems to set up and monitor your home security.
The Audiophile’s security systems have full keypads, surveillance cameras, alarms and
security lights which can also be controlled and operated by the touch panel to let you know
if someone is entering your property.
