We completed this dedicated cinema room upgrade in December 2013. The AV receiver was replaced , new HDMI cabling was run inside the ceiling to the projector, acoustic alignments carried out and the projector was upgraded to a JVC DLA-X35 .
Our client wanted the projected image to be as large as could be achieved within the space available and understandably he wanted the projector to be positioned close to the ceiling. The presence of an RSJ inside the ceiling at the back of the room made it difficult to achieve these objectives, so we custom built a structure just in front of and just below the RSJ to provide a substantial platform to support the projector in it’s ideal position. It was decorated to blend perfectly with the aesthetics of the room and the objectives were achieved. – Our client was delighted and his feedback can be seen below.
I just wanted to thank you for the work you completed on my home cinema. Right from the very start you have been really helpful but more importantly, responsive to every request I made of you. I know better than anyone that when you undertake a bespoke piece of work that nothing generally goes to plan and my job was no exception. I’d like to thankyou for your persistence in making sure everything worked perfectly which meant a few extra site visits. I’m certain other companies would not have gone the extra mile as you did. I’m delighted with the end result, and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any future client’ D Holmes – Berkshire
We completed this Lounge cinema room in February 2014. The Challenge was to install the system neatly into a cottage, where for various reasons it was not going to be possible to embed cables into the walls or ceiling.
The client was particularly keen that the system should be user friendly , so an RTI control processor was specified and an RTI touch screen remote control was custom programmed to provide icon based control for every aspect of viewing and listening.
In the areas where it was impossible to embed the cables into the walls or ceiling various types of curved profile mini and micro trunking were used to the conceal the cables.
Wired internet was available elsewhere in the property and needed to be extended to reach the built in AV cupboard to provide the fastest internet access for the lounge cinema equipment and for on demand services etc, so a cable route was identified in order to achieve this.
After UK Home Cinemas and home automation had been recommended to me by a friend they showed enthusiasm and imagination right from our first conversation. Richard made himself available in my own home to make suggestions for the bedding in of our home cinema system, most of which would otherwise never have occurred to me. They were accommodating enough to allow me to experience their demonstration system, something that made the decision to go with UK home cinemas an easy one. The quality of work is exceptional and they were extremely considerate in causing minimum disturbance to my daily routine. Ongoing correspondence is a particular strength and a major positive for me while I get to grips with the system-one which is set out logically and very user friendly. It would not be an exaggeration to describe the end product as life changing as our home finds a new focal point for relaxation and recreation – M Cook.
We completed this upgrade of a lounge cinema in early February 2014. An ageing 3 CRT Sim 2 projector was replaced with a new epson EH-TW9200W. Although the old projector still worked well , the quality of the images was totally transformed by this upgrade. We also replaced the old projection screen with a new cyberscreens grand View screen. The original floor standing front left and right speakers were replaced with smaller speakers in order to make space for the larger sized screen.
I wanted to upgrade my 12 year old SIM2 CRT projector and 77″ Vutec screen and found Richard Bell of UK Home Cinemas on the internet. Having visited Richard’s own home cinema setup of the Epson 9200W projector on a 100″ screen, I was convinced this was the way to go. We discussed lots of different options and possible configurations before Richard came on the appointed date to do the installation. As this was an upgrade we both had to get involved with taking down the large and heavy old CRT projector, but Richard took over at this point and installed the Epson 9200W projector with a flush ceiling mounted bracket that is extremely neat and discreet. Richard also installed a 92″ Grandview cyberscreen that also hugely improves the big screen experience. Richard worked late into the evening to ensure that all the tasks were completed and done as neatly and tidely as possible. Highly recommended !” Malcolm Smith – 22 Mar 2014
Following a major house refurbishment I used UK Home Cinemas to install my home cinema system. I found them to be very professional, very customer focused and very price competitive. Should the need arise I would definitely use their services in the future and strongly recommend them to potential future customers. Ray C .
I have an existing home entertainment system (Opus Octopus) that had develop faults but the original manufacturer appears to have gone out of business. UK Home Cinemas did a great job of fault finding and got the system working again at a very reasonable price. I then decided to update the system with a new AVR unit, so I can now control the system via an app on my phone and stream music, which I couldn't do previously. I also decided to upgrade the speakers in one of the rooms and all that work was completed to a high standard. No complaints and very satisfied with the outcome.
After renovating our basement into a family room we decided to go one step further and install a home cinema. Reading a few magazines dedicated to home cinema was insightful but we decided in order to get it right we would need some expert help. We found UK Home Cinemas on the internet and their website looked promising showing different packages and pictures along with testimonials from previous clients. We gave Richard a call, picked his brains and arranged to visit his home to see his own system. Once you have seen what's available and mix it with some of your ideas plus what Richard brings to the table things really start to take shape. One of the great things about Richard is the flexibility
of his packages to suit your project and budget, we changed our minds and added things several times over and Richard was always at hand in the planning stage. The installation of the cinema system ran smoothly from first fix to completion. One of the best pieces of advice Richard gave was to install the biggest screen we could, believe me this was inch perfect and well worth it. If like me you love your films or your kids love their games consoles you will never regret installing your own home cinema. Richard was very accommodating during the install and continues to be accommodating now with any further questions, his technical knowledge, professional yet friendly service and flexibility means I would not hesitate to recommend UK Home Cinemas
Fantastic service, amazing product and great value for money.
It just doesn't get better than this!
Richard is a professional in his field and I would recommend him to anyone, you won't be dissapointed.
I can't rate Richard highly enough. Having decided to create a home cinema in our lounge I searched the net for numerous companies for quotes. The UK Home Cinemas website was the most informative I came across, particularly the ready made package solutions which provided a good idea on total cost. Richard was very responsive and helpful during our first call spending over an hour discussing the various options available to me. I visited his 'show lounge' to get an idea of what it would all look like and again he took a considerable amount of time to help me decided what I wanted taking into account my budget and priorities. Unfortunately our renovations then took longer than expected but he worked with my builders to ensure the cables and power points etc... were positioned properly. As the cost of the renovations increased I had to make some changes to our cinema and again, Richard was completely fine, helping me to save money with as little impact on the finished product as possible. I can imagine other installers would have grumbled but definitely not the case here! We finally finished the install in Jan 2015 and I'm a very happy customer. During the actual installation Richard was very considerate of our new home, keeping disruption to a minimum and always ensuring the spaces he worked in were kept as clean and tidy as when he started. There were some issues as I increased the screen size during the install (again dealt with very helpfully without any problems) which required some cutting into the wall. This was filled and made good and you can't even notice now it's painted over. It is very apparent that Richard is an A/V tech buff, takes great pride in his work and has no hesitation in explaining things in an easy to understand manner. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone, indeed I've already referred two friends who are in the process of buying houses to get in touch with him.
UK Home Cinemas went above and beyond with the installation of our home cinema room. The job was done with such professionalism, even small details which I don't believe any one else apart from Richard would spend time doing, he did. He was very enthusiastic about the installation and to do it to 100% perfection. I would highly recommend UK Home Cinemas to anybody seriously interested into getting a home cinema.

The advantages shown in this clip, for 3LCD are also true for the other 3 Chip projector technologies. This clip also shows how single DLP systems project the primary colours sequentially ,(one primary colour at a time). This can cause a proportion of viewers to see coloured flickering and coloured rainbow like patterns in the images
