A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO HOME CINEMA
THE ROLE OF SOUND IN MOVIES
SOUND & EMOTIONS
Sounds are known to evoke emotions. The most realistic the sound reproduction the higher the emotional level of the listener.
In music major chords are felt to express happier feelings and minor chords sound more melancholic or sad. Emotions will depend as well on the melody and the rhythm.
The power of sound in shaping the emotion of the listener can be stronger than words and pictures. In a movie, a scene of a person walking in a forest can either be perceived as the beginning of a marvellous adventure or signal imminent danger thanks to only variations in the background sound mix.

THE WORLD OF BESPOKE
You don’t just purchase a Logos Room, you commission it. A Home Theatre that is yours, and yours alone. Every Logos Room developed by our engineers is unique to its owner. The conception of your bespoke Logos Room begins with your vision. From there, our engineers design your masterpiece free of time constraints. Bring your ideal home theatre to life in the ultimate expression of self with Logos Room Bespoke.
Proposed in three levels – Access, Prime, and Elite – the Logos Room answers our patrons’ expectations in terms of sound pressure, bass level, room size, and budget. All levels incorporate the same technology and use the same materials. The only difference lies in the specific blend of products selected for each project. The most extreme level – Logos Room Elite – can operate with an unlimited number of speakers and be developed virtually for any room volume.
Architecture’s anatomy proves an endless source of reference. Are your leanings sleek and postmodern? Or perhaps rococo and baroque? Whatever you imagine your ideal Home Theatre to be, bring your unique vision to life with Goldmund Bespoke Home Theatres.
Multichannel systems can be hidden or displayed. No construction work is required when selecting any visible speaker system from Goldmund collection. For invisible settings, we created the Logos Room.
Goldmund surround sound systems are also suitable for partially invisible renders, for example, for customers in search of an extension to an existing stereo system. This is obviously true with any Goldmund standalone speaker but also with speakers from other brands. For music aficionados, the stereo system quality is completely preserved when included in a Goldmund Home Theatre. Our digital processors automatically switch between stereo and multichannel formats, selecting the custom configuration for each of them. By adding a few Goldmund audio modules to existing high-quality stereo speakers, you can recreate a perfectly lifelike concert hall sonic atmosphere.
