DIAMOND ISLE DIRECT, the Isle of Wight audio visual systems specialists, celebrate their third birthday with the launch of DIAMOND ISLE SOUND & VISION dedicated to fitting systems in and around the home.

DVD, widescreen TV, digital surround sound and now 'multi-room' systems - home entertainment has certainly undergone something of a revolution in the last few years, with professional quality sound and video filtering down into affordable domestic 'separates'. Yet the choice of equipment can be confusing, and all the setting up and connecting more than a little daunting.

DIAMOND ISLE's philosophy of making today's high-tech products accessible to all, while providing 'Local service, Internet prices', has proven very popular with Island homeowners seeking value for money as well as the convenience and support of home delivery, fitting and demonstration.

"People come to us for their hi-fi and home cinema because they want the quality but not the hassle", says DIAMOND ISLE owner Jon Monks. "The smarter these systems get, the more difficult they can be to set up correctly, but we take care of that and make sure the end results are easy to use".

However the fastest-growing sector is in multi-room home automation. With even a modest budget, it is now possible to broadcast your favourite music and films around your home from your hi-fi or home cinema system, and control them in every room.

"Now you can, say, listen to a radio station in the kitchen, or a CD in the bedroom, even while someone else is already watching a DVD in the lounge! Or have the same music playing in every room for parties", says Monks. "All at the flick of a switch". Discrete speakers in attractive styles, simple yet elegant wall controls and remote control handsets keep clutter at bay, ensuring rooms look as good as they sound.

Outdoor sound is another in-demand accessory, with a new generation of affordable weather-resistant speakers delivering quality 'distributed audio' designed to entertain you rather than the neighbours! Perfect for the coming warmer weather and lighter evenings.

DIAMOND ISLE can meet you in the comfort of your own home to discuss your needs and the various equipment options - with everything explained in plain English! A system design and quotation can then be produced, free-of-charge and without obligation.

Over 20 years' experience in the industry has yielded an extensive range of carefully selected quality brands for both cost-conscious and 'audiophile' projects, including sole Island dealership for prestige award-winners DENON. Systems are designed to be as 'futureproof' as possible, allowing new gadgets to be added as they become available and helping to ensure your investment doesn't go out of date. All equipment is carefully and sympathetically installed, and an in-depth demonstration of the finished system is provided to make sure everyone knows exactly how it all works.

Adds Jon Monks: "Our home projects have doubled in the last year alone. We are proud of our reputation for personal service as well as quality and price, and feel this new division will allow us to concentrate on this important part of our business without compromising our work for commercial customers. We can design systems precisely tailored for the needs of our clients, at prices that suit almost any pocket."
