We have sold some of the CI products for a couple of months and after completing two THX systems for customers we thought we would go the whole hog. We are now a fully fledged Klipsch Reference Premier dealers and range all of their products including the CI, THX & Heritage line of Hi-Fi products. We will have a selection of the AV Kit winging its way to us next week for demo, including some of the new Reference Premier models. News and reviews to follow.

Things are changing at The Movie Rooms. After over 5 years in our old offices we have moved to custom built premises. We have moved out of the City Centre and out to the seaside at Joppa, in the east of the city. The new offices and demonstration rooms are custom built with acoustics in mind from the ground up. We will have a truly reference cinema in one room, and a smaller more flexible cinema for more day to day use. We will also have 3 other smaller demonstration rooms.

We are now open for visitors so if you would like to pop in and are in the area, we would love to see you.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support over the last 5 years of The Movie Rooms existence. We have come a long way in a short space of time and with this move will secure our place as one of the best equipped, least pushy & most knowledgeable places to buy your AV for a good few years to come.

Trinnov Audio is pleased to announce that it will add support for the IMAX® Enhanced format to its Altitude range of high-end AV preamp/processors. IMAX Enhanced is a certification and licensing programme jointly created by IMAX and DTS that certifies high-end consumer electronics products for playback of digitally remastered 4K HDR content with enhanced DTS audio.

Since its introduction in 2015, the Altitude 32 has been acclaimed by home theatre enthusiasts and professionals worldwide.

Trinnov’s success has been in part built on its revolutionary hardware platform. Altitude processors use an Intel processor rather than third-party chipsets for audio processing, decoding, and rendering. This software-based approach enables Trinnov to be the only manufacturer that can implement new technologies directly into its products. This disruptive approach allows for unprecedented durability and upgradability; powerful advantages in a fast-changing technological ecosystem.

“Trinnov has always been fully committed to performance & durability. We recently announced the warranty of our High-End products would be extended, retroactively, to 5 years. To further fulfil this commitment, we will continue to implement the latest technologies and are extremely proud to integrate IMAX ® Enhanced, continuing the collaboration we started with DTS when implementing DTS-X”, said Arnaud Laborie, Trinnov’s co-founder, and CEO.

IMAX Enhanced will be added to the Altitude 32 and the Altitude 16 as a free software update in the second half of 2019.

And, more importantly, Trinnov will be the first to add the DTS:X Pro technology, an improvement of DTS:X that enables 32 simultaneous discrete channels rendering versus 11 simultaneous channels in the current implementation.

DTS:X is an immersive object-oriented audio format. In high-end commercial cinemas, DTS:X can utilise up to 64 uniquely-rendered channels (plus LFE) for astoundingly high spatial resolution and realism. Until now, however, the residential version of DTS:X has been limited to a total of 11.1 channels.

Typically, this meant seven “bed” channels at listener level, an LFE channel, and four upper channels above the listening area. Trinnov’s Altitude® will be the first surround processors to offer DTS:X Pro to the high-end residential market.

The Altitude 32 will support up to 32 uniquely-rendered DTS:X Pro channels. It remains the only surround processor capable of rendering more than 12-16 uniquely-rendered channels, allowing for greatly increased spatial resolution and realism.

“Trinnov has been collaborating with the DTS team since 2014, leading to a first public demo of a DTS:X 22.2 system at CES 2015 on an Altitude 32 processor. Our software-based platform consistently enables us to release new formats before other high-end home cinema processors.

In turn, our design allows us to offer the latest technologies to our customers at their earliest availability. This was the case with DTS:X, and having worked closely with DTS, we are now very satisfied to be able to introduce DTS:X Pro as their first licensee of this technology. This accomplishment is yet another example of our commitment to high spatial resolution.” - Arnaud Laborie.

By means of a simple and free software update, owners of existing Altitude processors will be able to enjoy DTS:X Pro in 2019.

From its introduction in 2015, Trinnov’s Altitude32 has been fully capable of rendering 32 discrete channels. Now, as DSP-chipset manufacturers are finally about to achieve rendering of 16 channels, Trinnov engineering has created a solution to enable even more discrete channels from the Altitude32, expanding the count to 48 discretely-rendered channels by using the Altitude’s 32 analogue outputs and its 16 AES digital outputs simultaneously.


This will allow – for the first time – users to experience the full immersive capabilities of Home Atmos, with its maximum 24.1.10 layout, plus an additional 14 channels that enable more possibilities in terms of bass management, multi-amplified speakers, and Trinnov Remapping.


However, the 16 AES digital outputs require an AES multi-channel High-End DAC that performs as well as the Altitude’s own renowned DAC. Trinnov’s solution is the new Altitude48ext. Based on the Trinnov Magnitude32, the Altitude48ext provides 16 channels of AES/EBU input and up to 32 channels of analog outputs, using the same state-of-the-art DACs used in the Altitude32. This ensures perfect coherence in the final rendering and brings the total potential channel count to 64 independently processed channels.


The 48ext (“48 extension”) is much more than just a DAC. It is a fully capable Trinnov unit with the processing power to perform tasks such as implementing and calibrating up to 4-way active crossovers, unlimited bass management, and both third-octave and FIR equalisation. Combining the 48ext with an Altitude32 that has the 48 channel option gives users access to 48 discrete channels and as many as 64 independently processed channels, pushing even further the boundaries of what is achievable in a high-end Home Theater.

Move Update #2

13/11/2018 13:33


We have now moved into our new offices. Renovations are still on-going and it looks like the new demonstration facilities will not open to visitors until the end of January 2019.

When we do open to the public, we will have 6 new demonstration areas spanning 6500 sq ft.

Should you wish to be included on the invitation list to the grand opening, drop us an email and we will add you to our notification list.

Until then business will continue as normal on the phone and via email. The clearance sale will also continue and will end officially when we re-open.

We are now fully ensconced in the new offices and warehouse in Joppa. Unfortunately its going to be another month or so before we can accept visitors but I'm still available on the telephone and email as usual. The clearance sale continues, and will probably run right through until our official opening.

New UHD 4K Players

10/09/2018 12:24

With the recent demise of Oppo’s playback devices our field was looking a little fallow for premium replacements, until recently. In the next few weeks we will see two models from Pioneer, and a further unit form Panasonic.

Over the past 3-4 years Pioneer have produced some of the best built electronics in the market bar none. Of note were last year’s BDP-LX58 and BDP-LX88 players which to be fair in the realms of Blu Ray playback and build quality had no peers. We should see the first of the new 4K units in the next two weeks and the first model through the door will be the Pioneer UDP-LX500, it will be priced at £999. In October this will also be joined by the Pioneer UDP-LX800 priced at £2,199. Details are a little scant on the higher end unit, but we will add these to the product page as soon as we have them. We are aware that one of the attractive features of the outgoing Oppo models is that they were relatively easy to make Multi Region for DVD & Multi Zone for Blu Ray. This is something we hope to address with the Pioneer players over time, again this will be added to the product pages and the news section of the website should we have success.

Around this time the new premium Panasonic DP-UB9000 will arrive priced at £899, slightly under the RRP of the Pioneer units. This promises all the usual features along with a clever tone mapping facility for HDR, this will be very useful for projector based HDR systems which have lower lumens than LCD & OLED displays. It should equate to a significant upgrade in picture quality for most if not all UHD/HDR projection systems, particularly with those early release 4K UHD disks with static HDR10 metadata.

Links to the new players are below and we are accepting Pre-Orders for the new units on a first come first served basis.

Movie Of The Month

04/09/2018 11:54

This month a bit of the old Chop, Chop!

America had Al Capone; England, the Kray brothers and Australia - proving once and for all its antipodean sense of humour - has Mark "Chopper" Read. "Chopper" is inspired by the books of Mark Brandon "Chopper" Read, arguably Australia's most infamous former criminal. "Chopper" draws on police records, court transcripts, news coverage and interviews with people who knew Chopper Read.
