Bang & Olufsen Clifton Apartment upgrade
With the introduction of Smart Village’s; DSTV over Fibre System in Clifton, we offered our client the opportunity to upgrade his Bang & Olufsen television system to High Definition.
After staying in the apartment for over 5 years and not having access to High Definition DSTV this was a very attractive upgrade to the apartment. Clifton has been using a DSTV repeater system which only allows for standard definition television in all apartments and bungalows.
Discussions with Smart Village for the installation of the Fibre Line into the apartment commenced in January, with installation and implementation taking place at the end of March.
While we were waiting for the installation of the Smart Village fibre we carried out an upgrade to the rest of the apartment. This included:
A new amplifier and DVD player for the master bedroom. The previous amplifier was no capable of installing any High Definition cabling.
We replaced the existing Panasonic displays in the master bedroom and the bar with new Samsung High Definition televisons.
We installed new Apple TV’s at all televisions in the apartment.
As the apartment had no Wi-Fi installed we installed a Ubiquiti UAP WiFi access point (antenna) upstairs and downstairs. This would enable streaming to the new Apple TV’s.
We carried out a full service on all Bang & Olufsen equipment in the apartment, this included:
Cleaning of all fans and boards on the BeoVision 7 40 television. Cleaning the laser mechanism and door mechanism on the BeoSound 4 CD player.
Checking all Bang & Olufsen PowerLink cables at the BeoLab 3 speakers and cleaning all BeoLab 3 speakers.
Lastly we cleaned up all existing cabling in the apartment, ensuring all cabling was labelled and we compiled suitable wiring diagrams for our technicians to service the apartment quickly and professionally in the future.
