Tidal Update for Cambridge Audio

Finally, the time has come: In early April Cambridge Audio announced an update that upgrades its network players from the past five years with Tidal. Specifically, this refers to the following devices: Stream Magic 6 V2, CXN or CX N V2, CX R120 or CX R200 and the Azur 851N. The big advantage of this is that now more than forty million songs can be played on the models. With the premium version of Tidal you can stream with the standard quality and with Tidal HiFi you can play high fidelity CD sound quality. Tidal is, therefore, an ideal complement to the existing Spotify integration. As a bonus, playlists of other streaming services can also be moved to Tidal if required.

Home Cinema Opening Event 10th & 11th November

Due to major renovations in our home cinema demonstration, we are not taking part in the Lange Nacht der Ohren this year. Instead, on the 10th and 11th of November, we will be officially opening three completely redesigned home cinema suites. For further information please refer to our program overview.

The Renovation Of Our Large Home Cinema Still Underway!

For while now now our big cinema cinema suite has been revamped, which we reported on for the first time in this entry. In the meantime the wall for the technical room has got a nice paneling. Due to the luminaires on the ceiling, the room now has the typical cinema feel and also the fixture for the seating is now more appropriate. We are very much looking forward to the renovations of the room being completed!

Our Home Cinema Under Renovations!

After years of faithful service from our home cinema, it is now time to show it some TLC. The entire room is to be redesigned from scratch with new armchairs, a new lighting concept and improved room acoustics which will ensure the prefect conditions so that our updated surround system is fully utilized.

We will be installing a 7.1.4 channel system (Dolby Atmos, DTS: X) with loudspeakers from the KEF Ci series, as standard we will also be utilizing an Arcam AV860 processor. The decision regarding the power amplifier is still pending however we will certainly find a suitable solution here as well. Our acoustically transparent 4K-projector screen with a width of 3.5  will be remaining as is, apart from a fabric re-newal. We’ll be adding impressions of the reconstructions as they happen in our picture gallery. If you’re not yet familiar with our home cinema set-up, the video below provides a good overview.

The Switch To Digital Terrestrial TV DVB-T2 HD

Together with the increasing desire for television with HD content, the effort to reduce transmission frequencies so far is now showing its benefits. In many regions of Germany, as of 29 March 2017 the DVB-T will be replaced by its successor DVB-T2 HD. Let’s examine the new standard and what to look out for…
