A master list of stunning home theatres, stereo and smart home installations from Sound+Image magazine

Smart homes, stunning dedicated home theatre rooms, custom hi-fi music systems – we cover them in every issue of Sound+Image magazine, explaining the tech behind them, interviewing the custom installers that create them, and featuring the often-specialised custom products and home theatre packages that enable these projects to deliver reference-quality performance.
These features not only show what's possible at different levels of budget, they provide ideas which you might apply to your own home. We've seen families convert garage spaces and formal dining rooms into magnificent movie palaces. Many new-builds these days allocate a space for a dedicated media room or home theatre, but as you'll read in our articles, often the space is a non-ideal shape or fails to account for the needs of acoustics or air-conditioning. Learning from the experts will help you get it right from the earliest stages of planning.
Sound+Image presents GOLD awards for excellence in home theatre, stereo hi-fi installations and smart homes, so look for those awards on the websites of custom installers for additional confidence in their abilities. You can see our 2021 winners linked from the bottom of this master list of the projects we've put online so far, with more to come.
Enough preamble - please enjoy the full story of these fine custom installations - just click the pics below to head straight to the full articles.
