As an avid fisherman, Foster is a frequent visitor to Rocky Mountain Anglers, located just down the street from our Boulder showroom. So when he and his wife Megan decided to do a major remodel of their home, it just seemed natural to come to ListenUp for the electronics.
The couple worked with Senior Sales Consultant Jim Kearns, who designed a Control4-based automation system with distributed audio (via high end Bowers & Wilkins in-ceiling speakers) throughout the home, including the garage, kitchen, master bath, bedroom and rooftop deck. There’s also lighting control and security cameras that can easily be monitored and controlled via the Control4 app. But the pièce de résistance is the TV room, which features a Bowers & Wilkins 7.1-channel speaker system with 802 D3 floorstanding speakers, plus a McIntosh MX122 preamp/processor and MC8207 seven-channel power amplifier.
“I love the clarity of the sound,” says Foster. “I expected the speakers in the TV room to be pretty fantastic, which they are, but I didn’t expect the audio quality from the in-ceiling speakers in the rest of the house to be as good as it is. It’s pretty remarkable how good the sound is. Even in the garage, it sounds incredible.”
Foster was equally impressed with the service from the ListenUp crew. “As far as our subcontractors went, ListenUp was by far the leader of the pack. I didn’t have any issues with those guys at all — they were great.”
