Relative Home Systems Partners with Dolby and Triad for Superb Sound

Relative Home Systems Partners with Dolby and Triad for Superb Sound

As a Houston and The Woodlands, Texas-area integrator, we take great pride in providing the local community with the highest quality products from top national and global manufacturers. Both Dolby Atmos and Triad fit into that category, so we recommend these brands to customers rather regularly.

But what exactly are the best features of these speakers, and how can Relative Home Systems design the right placement for them in your home? In this blog, we have the answers for you and details on how to create the perfect whole house music system.

Create custom setups with Triad

Triad is an American manufacturer you can trust, with most of their speakers built-to-order in Portland, Oregon. The majority of the speakers can be painted in any color, and their veneer finishes are extremely popular as well.

With Triad, you not only get premium, high-end sound, but also a product that is versatile enough to be used in any space. For example, they have an InRoom Bronze LCR, but also offer InCeiling, OnWall, and InWall versions as well.

Let the Sound Take Center Stage Instead of the Speakers

Let the Sound Take Center Stage Instead of the Speakers

Technology is all around us. Electronic devices permeate our lives and occupy much of our time throughout the day. Perhaps you need to unplug from it all and want to hide the technology within your River Oaks or Austin home. The technology integrators at Relative Home Systems are ready to help. We’ll make you aware of the available options and guide you in selecting electronic components to blend into your interior decor.

Speakers Should Be Heard, Not Seen

There’s nothing quite like the sound of classical music streaming throughout the various rooms in your home. With whole home audio, it’s important to take into account the appearance of your system. Cumbersome technology can be hidden away, out of sight, so guests are able to focus on your elegant décor instead. Relative Home Systems recommends in-wall or in-ceiling speakers that fade away into your space while still producing remarkable sound. By using acoustically transparent fabric, we can also hide speakers in a variety locations.

Cover Up Those Cables

Most technologies, no matter how sophisticated, usually require running wires and cables that can be quite unsightly. Fortunately, the professionals at Relative can make them nearly invisible. Installing wires and cords along the trim or through the walls can bring a seamless look that does not obstruct your interior design. Other options include installing wire under carpeting, through the ceiling, or along baseboards using “flat” cables.

Nation’s First Home Product MainStreet America®

Nation’s First Home Product MainStreet America®

MainStreet America® is a year-round showcase of homes where people will be inspired, informed and empowered to build or remodel their home. Positioned as a truly innovative concept in shopping for new homes and related services, MainStreet America® premiers this Fall as the only venue of its kind in the country with dining, retail, entertainment and educational opportunities added to the blend of activities. Opening at a time of national economic uncertainty, MainStreet America® is located in Houston, Texas, one of the nation’s healthiest housing markets, a leader in job growth and rising consumer confidence. That makes Houston perhaps the perfect locale for unveiling a new beacon of hope symbolic of the promise that the American dream is alive and well.

 

There is a new destination on the horizon for consumers in the greater Houston area who are eager to experience a new and unique way of shopping for new homes, home products, and home services. Situated on a 14-acre site just south of The Woodlands on Interstate 45 is MainStreet America® (MSA), a multi-million dollar home product theme park. This innovative shopping venue can best be described as an inspiring world of discovery built around empowering educational technology and the home. MainStreet America® will be a powerful influence on consumer spending and will soon redefine how people shop for home products and services.

MSA is the culmination of years of study and research by owners Michael and Barbara Feigin. “MainStreet America® will be open year-round, seven days a week – the only perpetual showcase of homes of its kind in the country,” says founder/CEO, Michael Feigin. “But it’s more than a showcase of new homes … it’s an educational, shopping and entertainment destination centered on the home.” Twelve dynamic model homes, along with a two-story, 45,000 square foot Guest Center have been under construction for the past 15 months and are now slated for opening early November. From Old World Mediterranean to Contemporary Modern, the Park will feature a wide range of architectural styles, interior décor and square footages. In addition, each home is designed to operate as a retail furniture showroom. For the first time, consumers will be able shop for home furnishings within the full context of a completely decorated and functional home.

Visitors to MainStreet America® will begin their experience at the Guest Center where they can engage in a number of activities. From there they can embark on a self-guided tour of each showcase home, participate in a how-to workshop, or enjoy one of the many planned family and seasonal events. While in the Park, visitors can also access a complete list of home services — all under one roof. On site is a custom home builder, a full-service remodeling company, a mortgage company, interior design studio and a residential architectural firm. “One of the unique highlights of the park is that guests can access instant information on desired products in each showcase home through their use of our specially designed, hand-held Technological Education Device we call TED,” states Feigin. “The TED experience can best be described as online browsing combined with in-store shopping – taken to a whole new level.” Utilizing the latest in scanning technology, the TED device will allow users to wave over a programmed product tag to initiate audio and/or visual feedback. If you’re interested in a specific brick exterior, swimming pool accessory, surround sound system component, kitchen appliance, or even the radiant barrier found inside an attic – TED will access its brand name, list of features, provide buying information and create a virtual shopping list.
