Kalibrate's 2020 Newsletter, news and Special offers
03 January 2020
Can we first wish everyone a Happy and Prosperous New Year. We would like to also thank you all for your patience during our move in 2019.The relocation took a lot more time than expected, but we are moving in the right direction for the company now. A new demo room - more information below
We at Kalibrate are a specialised AV supplier and installer, specialising in home cinema. We work with each product we sell and find the technical strengths (and weaknesses) to make balanced recommendations for our customers based on their requirements. Our aim is to get the best performance for our customers requirements/budget. The analysis we make is based on technical tests and information using £000's of test equipment, i.e. Jeti 1511 Spectrophotometer. Did you know that many publications reviews are technically flawed as they do not have the equipment to set up the test subject properly, and have no point of technical reference. This is very important visually as there are industry standards.
Along with tests, we use all the equipment we sell in a standard domestic scenario or demo/test room, so that we are comfortable in how the equipment works, this means we can make recommendations with confidence.
Please note, that we have deliberately kept the business small, as it is based around a technical background, rather than sales, which means it can take us a day or few to return all emails and calls, as there are times where we need to focus on the technical tests, calibrations, demos, installs etc.
The website only shows a fraction of what we offer, the installs we perform and the products we sell. If there is anything you are looking for, please do let us know, so we can see if it is something we can provide.
Kalibrate Limited reached 10 years old in October 2019. With the move taking up a fair amount of time, we did not get around to celebrating last year, but we will put together a celebration in the coming 2020.
Coming in 2020
2020 will be the start of a new era for Kalibrate. The move has allowed us some possibilities:

New Equipment offers
During 2019 and into 2020 were have offered a range of new products.
Trinnov AV Processors - the 'King of AV Processors'.
Diverse ambient light rejecting grey screens - Designed for non perfect rooms (i.e. rooms with natural light, or reflected light) these are selling well, and start at just £499 and are available in fixed frame and tab tensioned versions, and fully customised dimensions available at no extra charge.
Krix Loudspeakers - One of Australia's prime speaker brands, this speaker brand share many familiarities to the Power Sound Audio Brand that we have been selling over the last few years. With their megaphonix flat speakers utilising 10" mid range drivers, they have an efficiency of around 95db 1w/1m giving a very efficient dynamic sound from a speaker that is only 162mm deep. Also available is their infinite baffle wall of speakers/subwoofers which are perfect to go behind an acoustically transparent screen.

Power Sound Audio Subwoofers - Newly announced the xx12 range of subwoofers offer an improved driver, and whilst our first delivery is presold, we are expecting more stock as we go through the year.
