Ultimate AV Home Has 43 Speakers, 26 TVs, 17 iPads
By Steven Castle
Blending the needs of high-end audio and video everywhere required some networking derring-do.

It usually doesn’t work this way, but in this house she insisted on the great audio speakers. He just wanted TVs for video in every room.

The result in this three-building, 8-acre spread? Fifty zones of audio, 26 zones of video, 16 zones of HVAC to stay comfy while enjoying all that media, and 1,200 lighting loads—all controlled by an Apple-based Savant home automation system with on-screen control on all 26 TVs and 17 iPads.

There are even special buttons to help a mother-in-law and to keep track of an autistic nephew who visits often. First the audio. The killer sounds the lady of the house wanted are delivered by 43 Meridian digital speakers. Each speaker contains its own amplifier, allowing the signal to remain digitally pure right to the speaker location.

The husband does not like watching TV with the sound coming through in-ceiling speakers, so in some rooms two separate audio zones are utilized. The family also wanted the speakers hidden, so some cool customization was in order.
