Hi

I'd like to start a thread on my whole house being renovated.

Some pictures below to start off with working on a new annex in the garden, garden lighting and audio and a fountain or pond because my mum won't allow for a tarmac racetrack 😂

The annex will be an open plan summer house with 1 bedroom ensuite and packed with B&O on ML or NL.

Key points on install components:

Home automation: BLGW / Control4 if I really need this on the side

Lighting: Philips Dynalite with Philips Antumbra 6 button LCD wall switches. Those wall switches are capable of controlling the lighting, central heating, underfloor heating, motorised shades/blinds and audio for that zone through ceiling speakers.

Audio/Video: 4K 16x16 Atlona Matrix. All rooms will have B&O NL TVs, B&O Music Systems or legacy TVs used as a music system through ML. I have many with the surround module.

All ensuites will have the BL3500

My setup will have 3 or 4 NL/ML Converters.

I will have a Masterlink for every person for their ensuite BL3500 and rooms they like to chill with legacy equipment connected to their main unit in their bedroom - BS4/BS9000/BS3200/BS5

I think the legacy equipment is just way too sexy and adding the NL/ML Converter ensures they cannot be outdated 👍🏻💯

Garden audio will be TruAudio Outdoor Landscape series with 2 10inch underground subwoofers and 8 speakers hidden in the bushes.

All will be centralised in a dedicated server room in the main house in 2 40U racks.

Piping for around 15 Cat6A cables and the rest of it 👌🏻

I will keep this thread updated on the full build.

Regards

Kiran

Hi Kiran,

That looks like a superb project, with a good choice of B&O products inside - I'm very jealous! Big Smile 

Please keep us updated as the build progresses....

Kind regards, Steve.

Thanks guys.

I hope I can get the BLGW talking to the whole Philips system to control the central heating and underfloor heating as well as the lighting and blinds.

It would look wicked on the new Home Control GUI on the Avant.

At the moment, I'm happy to distribute audio and video to all rooms.

I'll see how I get on. I may need to add Control4 EA controllers.

I will also have an iPad Air mounted using the B&O in-wall surround. These will be in the hallways of every floor.

Pictures on more equipment and install soon 👍🏻

Regards

That is an impressive collection. Blimey, you are on your way to making a B&O museum. Wow, wow, wow. I want to visit when you're done: perhaps Lee can organise a ticket sale. I love how you hold on to older products rather than trading them in for the latest but maybe or maybe not the greatest.

Yes I hate trading anything in or selling. My dad bought his first Beocenter 9000 15-20 years ago and he's been on a roll since. Has me addicted.

I'm further developing everything with Masterlinks. I wish he knew about this.

It will only be B&O in my house.

Yes you are most welcome to visit 👍🏻
