Installing surround sound for a cinema experience in London

Surround sound has been around for quite some time. But with the arrival of 3D TV, HDTV and Blue-ray DVD it is now more possible than ever to simulate the movie theatre experience in the home.

For a surround sound experience, you will need:

  1. A DVD player, media center or a HDTV broadcasting source - such as SKY, Virgin, Freesat or Freeview
  2. A decoder - the equipment to decode the picture and surround sound signal
  3. Speakers and a subwoofer to project the sound. 6 speakers are best and 5.1 is a good format

We specialise in installing your surround sound equipment to create a home cinema experience. From mounting speakers onto walls and overhead projectors onto ceilings to hiding speaker cables with conduit, punching through plasterboard or even chasing out the walls and replastering.

A home cinema set-up

Home cinema encompasses a range of systems designed for playing films at home. A basic system is a DVD player, a large screen LCD TV, and an off the shelf surround sound speaker system with a subwoofer. A medium level set-up might include a Blu-ray player, a media center set-up such as an Xbox, a Western Digital WD TV HD Media player or PC, a home video projector mounted on a ceiling and a projection screen, and a several thousand Watt home theatre receiver with seven surround sound speakers and a large subwoofer.

TestimonialYes, I am very pleased with the surround sound installation. It is very professional and sounds great. Thank you very much.

Geoff Armstrong, London

TestimonialWe had a home cinema system installed by Multi-Trade. I can honestly say that it was one of the best experiences I have ever had with any company. Their professional approach from start to finish was refreshing. I am over the moon with the system. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company.

Thomas Spring, London

TestimonialI wanted to install a home cinema into our basement as a surprise for my husband's 40th birthday. After calling several companies and receiving quotes for the work I eventually chose Multi-Trade. Their quote came quickly and was well laid out and itemized. They stood out as a professional company and the engineer that met me knew what I wanted. The work was done on time and the engineers were friendly and polite. It only took 1 week. My husband was thrilled with the system. I think Multi-trade did a fantastic job and I would certainly advise anyone looking for a home cinema to use them.

The Multi-trade difference

There are plenty of companies out there competing for your business - and you need to make sure you're armed with all the facts before you make a decision about which one to choose. Here are a few things to check before you decide - we're confident that if you're looking for great service you'll choose Multi-Trade!

  • Does the company or tradesperson you're considering offer free quotations?
  • Do they offer an open and honest pricing structure with no hidden costs?
  • Do they have a contactable office, not just a mobile in case of any queries?
  • Does anyone answer the phone in the day?
  • Are their tradespeople honest, reliable, polite and vetted?

If the answer to any of these questions is 'no' then give us a call - we can confidently answer 'yes' to all of these questions. Not sure? Check out our testimonials page to see what some of our previous customers think of our customer service!
