Magnolia has contracted PMI Ltd. to design listening rooms at four of its northern California design centers (San Francisco, San Carlos, Roseville, Mission Valley). Located inside Best Buy stores, these four Magnolia Design Centers will feature premier-quality stations with four listening axes to deliver optimal sound performance from any location or direction in the room.
Using its technical knowledge and expertise in the engineering of high-quality listening rooms, PMI has designed and specified acoustical tuning systems to suit each room’s size and needs. The acoustical tuning systems are supplied by MSR Acoustics, using a combination of Sonata and Symphony modules from their new Dimension4 collection. Dimension4 features three systems, each designed to deliver a clearer, smoother and more immersive audio experience.
“The challenge Magnolia presented was to have all four corners of these new listening rooms sound great. Thanks to the flexibility, performance, and superb tuning ability of MSR’s acoustical systems, we were able to achieve their goals,” commented Anthony Grimani, president of PMI Ltd. “We created a unique environment where listeners will be able to hear the subtle differences in various levels of speakers, all in the same space.”
Roseville and San Carlos locations were open to the public beginning September 23; San Francisco and Mission Valley locations will open October 21.
