EUROPE’S BEST HOME CINEMA (by Roland Koller)

After a JBL Synthesis Training (2003), Roland Koller decided to convert one of his showrooms and build a home cinema, which had never yet existed in Europe, absolutely no compromise in image, sound and acoustics. The decision was made after CEDIA, HAA, and JBL THX trainings and he created a home theater that seeks its equal.

EUROPE’S BEST HOME CINEMA (by Roland Koller)

Roland Koller presents “Europe’s Best Home Cinema”

After a JBL Synthesis Training (2003), Roland Koller decided to convert one of his showrooms and build a home cinema, which had never yet existed in Europe, absolutely no compromise in image, sound and acoustics. The decision was made after CEDIA, HAA, and JBL THX trainings and he created a home theater that seeks its equal. (Roland Koller is Austria’s first certified ISF, HAA, Runco, Stewart, THX and CEDIA custom installer.)

JBL Synthesis TWO and a Runco projector were only the beginning. After a short time, several manufacturers around the world, including the specialist magazine Home Cinema, started visiting them, and the specialist magazine wrote an article about their unique reference Cinema. They were so excited that they honored them with the award “Best Home Cinema in Europe”.

Then things started to happen very fast and Roland went the extra mile. There was a 4 meter electric masked THX Perforated Stewart Filmscreen (Austria’s largest THX screen), the reference 3Chip Runco projector (exclusively in German-speaking world) and the JBL SYNTHESIS Atlas system (exclusively in German-speaking world) installed. Meanwhile, everything was upgraded to 3D …. picture and sound, world-class niveau, better than in the big cinemas and still “Europe’s best home theater”.
