DIAMOND ISLE DIRECT, the Isle of Wight audio visual systems specialists,
celebrate their third birthday with the launch of DIAMOND ISLE
SOUND & VISION dedicated to fitting systems in and around the
DVD, widescreen TV, digital surround sound and now 'multi-room'
systems - home entertainment has certainly undergone something
of a revolution in the last few years, with professional quality
sound and video filtering down into affordable domestic 'separates'.
Yet the choice of equipment can be confusing, and all the setting
up and connecting more than a little daunting.
DIAMOND ISLE's philosophy of making today's high-tech products
accessible to all, while providing 'Local service, Internet prices',
has proven very popular with Island homeowners seeking value for
money as well as the convenience and support of home delivery,
fitting and demonstration.
"People come to us for their hi-fi and home cinema because they
want the quality but not the hassle", says DIAMOND ISLE owner
Jon Monks. "The smarter these systems get, the more difficult
they can be to set up correctly, but we take care of that and
make sure the end results are easy to use".
However the fastest-growing sector is in multi-room home automation.
With even a modest budget, it is now possible to broadcast your
favourite music and films around your home from your hi-fi or
home cinema system, and control them in every room.
"Now you can, say, listen to a radio station in the kitchen,
or a CD in the bedroom, even while someone else is already watching
a DVD in the lounge! Or have the same music playing in every room
for parties", says Monks. "All at the flick of a switch". Discrete
speakers in attractive styles, simple yet elegant wall controls
and remote control handsets keep clutter at bay, ensuring rooms
look as good as they sound.
Outdoor sound is another in-demand accessory, with a new generation
of affordable weather-resistant speakers delivering quality 'distributed
audio' designed to entertain you rather than the neighbours! Perfect
for the coming warmer weather and lighter evenings.
DIAMOND ISLE can meet you in the comfort of your own home to
discuss your needs and the various equipment options - with everything
explained in plain English! A system design and quotation can
then be produced, free-of-charge and without obligation.
Over 20 years' experience in the industry has yielded an extensive
range of carefully selected quality brands for both cost-conscious
and 'audiophile' projects, including sole Island dealership for
prestige award-winners DENON. Systems are designed to be as 'futureproof'
as possible, allowing new gadgets to be added as they become available
and helping to ensure your investment doesn't go out of date.
All equipment is carefully and sympathetically installed, and
an in-depth demonstration of the finished system is provided to
make sure everyone knows exactly how it all works.
Adds Jon Monks: "Our home projects have doubled in the last year
alone. We are proud of our reputation for personal service as
well as quality and price, and feel this new division will allow
us to concentrate on this important part of our business without
compromising our work for commercial customers. We can design
systems precisely tailored for the needs of our clients, at prices
that suit almost any pocket."
