The Audiophile offers a complete home technology design and installation service.
Custom installed home entertainment and automation is considered a luxury, but that doesn’t mean it has to be beyond your reach, difficult to use, or not suitable for your home.
Anyone, on any budget, in any style of house, can enjoy the benefits of custom electronic design offered by The Audiophile team.
The Audiophile is committed to delivering you with the best experience in professional home entertainment design and installation processes. The expert team will save you both time and money by taking care of the overall design of your new system, tailored to your needs.
The Audiophile’s CEDIA (Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association) certified technicians will guide you every step of the way as you choose suitable audio visual and security products for your home.
The team also offers a complete installation process - whether you have selected a brand new system or decide to integrate older devices with new products.
The best time to assess and discuss your audio visual requirements is before you start your building or renovating process. Correct design is essential, as once the new building or renovated property is complete it is often too late and costly to change the design.
So let The Audiophile specialists help you make informed choices about your technology systems and get them up and running in your home or business (see our Commercial section) as soon as possible.
All you will have to do is sit back and relax as you listen to music, watch a movie, or play a game on your new state-of-the-art home entertainment system.
Entertainment is for your enjoyment after all.

Get a sensational listening experience others will envy.
The Audiophile’s two channel Hi-Fi sound systems provide the optimum in sound definition so you can listen to music how it was intended to be heard - clearly with a broad sound stage.
Hi-Fi brings the concert and movie experience to you without you even having to leave your house.
Creating a Hi-Fi set up is easy to achieve, thanks to our specialist team who can install discreet in-wall speakers, CD players, media streamers, tuners and amplifiers or traditional floor standing speakers. We will help you select the right speakers for your environment.
Watch your favourite films with surround sound.
The Audiophile can help you select a home theatre surround sound system to complement your visual experience.
Whether you opt for a 5.1, 7.1 or one of the latest audio formats like Dolby Atmos for your surround sound system, the outcome will be an audio visual experience like no other.
With most TV shows now broadcasting in full 5.1 surround sound, it’s worth installing this sound equipment so you can appreciate and benefit from what’s being provided.
Your home theatre audio includes in-ceiling, in-wall or discreet satellite speaker options, meaning less clutter and a visually appealing environment.
Listen to music at different volumes across multiple areas.
Multi-Area Audio is rapidly becoming a standard feature of most new and existing homes.
It allows you to listen to your favourite tunes in multiple areas of your home.
Enjoy various controls to select music, or alter the volume in each room.
This is the perfect audio solution for indoor / outdoor entertainment areas.
There are two types of Multi-Area Audio:
SINGLE SOURCE DISTRIBUTED AUDIO
Enables you to listen to the same audio in multiple areas of your home. This style of
distributed audio is very rarely used these days.
MULTI SOURCE DISTRIBUTED
Enables you, your family and friends to listen to different audio in multiple areas.
This also includes options where you can see your iPod’s song and album information without
being in the same room as your playing device.
A home entertainment system would not be complete without television.
While TV has long been a popular device for Kiwi families, advancements in technology in the past few years has meant selecting from the range of TVs on offer can sometimes
The Audiophile team will help you choose the most suitable viewing products.
Get the latest in high definition flat panel TV and projection technology, and benefit from the latest smart features.
The Audiophile can point you in the right direction when it comes to selecting size, display method, LED, OLED or Projection.
Below are the main types of visual experiences you can achieve in your own home:
TV has gone digital, which means better quality picture and sound with the ability to stream your favourite shows from any smart TV or streaming device.
There are two options when it comes to Digital TV:
This requires a satellite dish and a satellite decoder or a TV with built-in satellite Freeview.
Freeview or Sky can both be received from satellite, but Freeview and standard Sky will only show in standard definition via satellite. Using a MY SKY HDi decoder will mean you can receive High Definition via satellite.
This option requires a good UHF antenna and either a TV with Freeview built in, or a separate decoder for older TVs. Terrestrial is broadcast in High Definition, but is only available in certain geographical areas.
UHD & 4K TV
Enjoy an ultimate cinema experience in your own home by watching movies in High Definition (HD) or even 4K (UHD) to complement your 5.1 or Dolby Atmos surround sound system.
It’s paramount that the TV picture looks as good as it can, and this is why Digital HD TV and Blu-ray movie players have become the norm.
With many homes now having more than one television across multiple rooms, it’s crucial to have the correct cabling and technological systems installed to ensure the best quality
picture anywhere in your home.
Distributed video enables you to enjoy crystal clear TV, movies and even means you can have the ability to keep an eye on your security camera video signals, wherever you are.
High Definition can also be distributed, however, choosing the correct supplier/installer is essential. There are many factors other than getting a picture from A to B when dealing with High Definition and High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI). The amount of data between HD devices is immense and requires the correct equipment and installation to deliver a long lasting, solid connection throughout your home.
Have full control over all your home entertainment, lighting, blinds, heating and security systems with the touch of a button.
System control is a key component in your audio visual design and installation process.
No matter what size your home entertainment system is, it should be simple and easy to use, with reliable centralised controls that eliminates the need for multiple remotes.
The Audiophile team are experts in home automation and control systems, offering intuitive controls and easy to follow systems for the whole family.
Enjoy a touch panel remote system which can be programmed to meet your individual requirements.
Home control and automation systems give you the ultimate experience in home comforts and can even be controlled from your smart device.
Use automated mood lighting control systems to adjust the level of lighting throughout the home and outdoors to create atmosphere and save power. You can even set movie mode lighting or dimmers to automatically come on in the evening and turn off when desired.
MULTI-AREA AUDIO/VISUAL SYSTEMS
Set up control systems for your home audio and visual entertainment that, with the simple use of a one touch remote or any smart device, will give you a luxury experience.
Bring the enjoyment of your favourite music and video to any room of your home, including outdoor areas.
Pre-set TV channel favourites, browse the internet and even check the weather through a centralised control system.
At the end of the day all you will have to do is pick up the remote and get your audio visual experience started.
Here are the different types of multi-room control systems we offer:
- BASIC UNIVERSAL REMOTE CONTROLS
The Audiophile have control options for any home entertainment system – of any size.
A universal remote will consolidate all your AV remote controls into one easy to use remote.
A single touch remote will enable multi-room control via a touch screen remote or
Control your system from a smart device.
- INFRARED & RF REMOTE CONTROLS
These allow you to control CD, DVD, Sky and other components from any room in your home.
Most remotes that come with equipment are infrared, which means you must physically point
the remote at the equipment to operate it.
However, RF (radio frequency) remotes are what we recommend, as they work around the
home, making it perfect for multi-room systems. RF also makes it possible for your system
to be stored neatly away, out of sight, while you can control it from anywhere.
Use centralised control systems to set up and monitor your home security.
The Audiophile’s security systems have full keypads, surveillance cameras, alarms and security
lights which can also be controlled and operated by the touch panel to let you know if someone is entering your property.
In this fast moving technological world, audio visual devices now rely on a reliable network system, and you too can stay up to date with these trends in your own home.
The Audiophile offer data design, smart wiring and installation services which are
connected to your home entertainment system.
This means you can access the internet, stream music and videos from the web, get the latest news and weather, and
interact via social networking sites and Skype.
When choosing a data system, The Audiophile team will advise you on your options and
install data so you get quality high speed connections to your audio visual equipment.
Your personal computer or laptop can also be connected to your home entertainment system.
Structured wiring is an important part of your data distribution, home audio distribution,
telephone and security system.
The Audiophile will help with the whole process from design to installation.
Once you have your home entertainment system in place, you will want a state-of-the-art
security system to give you peace of mind.
You have enough to think about on a daily basis than to waste energy worrying about
whether your family, home and contents (including your new audio visual equipment) is safe.
The Audiophile offer complete security solutions so you can build and maintain a
safe living environment.
These include integrated security, door entry and intercom systems that deliver the
highest level of safety and convenience to your property.

lights to full security keypads, surveillance cameras and digital systems.
