The theater at Blanche Cove


Will Gilbert says it’s rare for a technology integrator to be able to work as closely with the architect, builder and interior designer as Think Simple was able to on the house on Blanche Cove Drive.

“They were very open to our ideas,” he recalls, “so we were able to optimize every detail, even the framing plan, for the best possible quality.”

As a result, “this is one of the most incredible sounding theaters I’ve ever heard. The exact dimensions, the sound isolation, even the baffling in the ductwork is just perfect.”

The technology is exceptional as well. Think Simple installed an 18-speaker Dolby Atmos sound system using Meyers Acheron speakers with a Trinnov 3D processor.

There’s a Sony VPL-VW5000ES laser projector creating a 16-foot wide 4K image on a Stewart acoustically transparent screen. A nice touch is the use of Stewart’s motorized side masking, which adjusts the screen’s aspect ratio to match the video being projected.

Because it is a node on the home’s NVX network, the theater can show any video available in the house, whether from AppleTV Plus, cable or other premium streaming services.

“You might be surprised at the quality possible from the premium services, but you see it and hear it when you have a theater like this one,” says Think Simple’s Joe Vaccarino. “Everyone is blown away by this theater.”
