Audio Excellence

Multifunctional Simplicity

Multifunctional Simplicity 1024 576 Audio Excellence

An ideal home would have four functionally different audio systems:

• A dedicated projection based home theatre.
• A high-performance two-channel system for pure music listening.
• A discrete distributed multi-room audio system.
• A sheer fun high volume entertainment system.

Typically space and budget exclude most of us from such a necessary indulgence. With this in mind, the full functionality of this featured system is remarkable.

• Home theatre in an open space.
• Front speakers provide a convincing wide musical sound stage.
• The amplifier which drives the home theatre also powers and controls 
    music in the kitchen and patio independently. 
• Klipsch speakers are highly efficient so can play a respectable volume


Rotel RB1552 – Power Amplifier

Rotel RB1552 – Power Amplifier 1024 576 Audio Excellence

R21 790

Rotel audio components slot perfectly into the gap between entry-level real Hi-Fi and high-end audio. The Rotel RB1552 perfectly exemplifies this. An exceptionally well-designed amplifier that delivers a musical 120W x2.  It’s the perfect upgrade from an integrated stereo amplifier or an addition to an AV amplifier that has pre-outs to drive your front speakers. Highly recommended.

Conrad-Johnson Classic 120SE Tube Power Amplifier

Conrad-Johnson Classic 120SE Tube Power Amplifier 1024 576 Audio Excellence

Specifications alone can only give an objective insight into how an audio component may perform. Only subjective listening can reveal how truly special some components are. In the case of Conrad-Johnson – “It just sounds right!” The Classic 120SE valve amplifier delivers 120W of pure pitch-perfect musicality beyond reproach.  

A very special amplifier.


Motorised Cinema Conversion

Motorised Cinema Conversion 1024 576 Audio Excellence

For a projection-based home theatre system, a dedicated, enclosed, windowless room, which completely inhibits any light from entering it, is always first prize, but often neither practical nor desirable. A recent home remodel was an opportunity for the client’s home office to also become the family’s home theatre. Our first suggestion of bricking up windows was politely declined. Solution – Blinds and a motorised screen convert the room into a home theatre with the room’s natural light maintained for office work. A fantastic multi-functional space.

Immersive Home Theatre

Immersive Home Theatre 1024 576 Audio Excellence

The benefits of dealing with Audio Excellence are perfectly showcased by this cinema. Our client’s initial concept for his new theatre was themed with formal cinema seating. Over months of consultation and revisions with us, the project evolved into a theatre with no distractions, colour scheme to optimise picture quality, practical and comfortable seating, and acoustic treatment to optimise the movie’s soundtrack. The result is a highly engaging and completely immersive experience.


SVS SB 1000 – Powered Sub

SVS SB 1000 – Powered Sub 1024 576 Audio Excellence

R14 950

When adding the last two pieces of a 100 piece puzzle, the picture gets subjectively better by more than 2%. The same is true when adding a subwoofer to a Hi-FI system. We’re only adding 20 Hz to 50 Hz of 20 000 different frequencies, but the overall result is substantially more impactful than anticipated.

The addition of an SVS SB1000 subwoofer to this client’s dedicated stereo system way exceeded their expectations. Music is an important part of this couple’s life with the bulk of their listening focused on all sub-genres of jazz and classical music. From organ music to big band jazz the SVS sub adds weight and depth elevating their listening experience to new levels.

Subwoofers have a reputation for being only for playing a “boomy” repetitive beat or noisy explosions in a home theatre. A quality, accurate subwoofer like the SVS SB1000 blows that myth out the water. Worth an audition.

Klipsch Forte III Speakers

Klipsch Forte III Speakers 1024 576 Audio Excellence

R107 390

The Klipsch Forte III was originally released in 1985 and quickly established itself as one of Klipsch’s most popular speakers.  So popular that requests from dealers and customers saw the reintroduction of it in 2017. The Forte III creates a huge sound from a relatively small footprint which it achieves with a 12-inch woofer, horn-loaded midrange and tweeter, and a rear 15-inch passive radiator. An Old School design and look with a fresh modern sound. It handles any genre of music and at 99dB efficiency, a low powered tube amplifier can drive it to adequate volumes.

Elegant Bass Solution

Elegant Bass Solution 1024 576 Audio Excellence

Client: “I would like two quality, powerful subwoofers for my newly renovated apartment, but have limited space”

Audio Excellence: “Not a problem, Sir. GoldenEar Technology have built them into their speakers”

Intelligent engineers and well-executed products often provide a very elegant solution to a tricky installation.  Point in case. Very few speakers would be able to deliver the scale of sound which the GoldenEar Triton Ones do in this confined space. A quality installation with great performance.
