Barrett’s Technology Solutions wants you to know first-hand exactly how their audio and entertainment technology performs when you visit their new design center. Located in Naperville, IL, the new design center begins the sales process with a new approach as soon as you walk through the door — a “builder- and architect-friendly” approach that presents the technology more directly.
A view of the theater room at the new Barrett’s Technology Solutions design center.
The middle of the showroom is free of the normal clutter of boxes and electronic gear — instead each aspect of technology integration and automation is featured around the perimeter of the main showroom. Barrett’s Technology Solutions presented their core business throughout five primary demonstration rooms: two for performance audio, two for multi-media/theater, and one room dedicated to computer audio and streaming media.
The highlight of the design center is the multi-media room that features a 172-inch Seymour-Screen Excellence Enlightor2 acoustically transparent screen accompanied by Wisdom Audio speakers, very similar to the pair’s highly-acclaimed demonstration that took place at the 2013 CEDIA Expo. The video is provided by Sony’s flagship 4K projector. The second theater room is smaller but architecturally more appealing with requisite paneling, trimmings, and ceiling highlights. Lastly, a film image is permanently projected on one of the brand’s S-SE acoustically transparent film screen, their flagship ISF-certified Enlightor4K model.
