As the curtains draw and the lights dim, I’m sitting comfortably in my red chair as the large screen bursts into life. Fast and Furious 7 starts straight into a street race scene and I can feel the high-octane engine revs vibrating through my legs – it’s a total cinema experience, and I want one at home!
I’ve come to Christchurch’s Strawberry Sound to check out its awesome theatre room where faultlessly clear, realistic – and when required, booming – sound plays out on a range of audio equipment, including the big screen.
Named after The Beatles classic ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’, Strawberry Sound’s 30-year history, leading-edge products and specialised technicians have cemented it as the go-to destination for commercial and residential sound systems, audio/visual solutions, lighting control, home theatres and then some.
In a nutshell, the business can turn your home into a sensory pleasure palace with multi-room audio, mind-blowing home theatre, and Hi-Fi systems that will put you front and centre at your favourite concert.
It's bursting with the latest and greatest – audiophiles will want to block out some serious time to explore and experience the nirvana-inducing showroom’s range of killer turntables, speakers, amps and displays, along with some serious gadgetry and cans, including world dominating must-haves Parrot Zik 2.0 wireless headphones.
Whatever it is you’re after, the Strawberry Sound crew are wired (and wireless!) for sound.
