Photo 101

Enjoy beautiful music while cooking or entertaining friends from high fidelity flush-mounted speakers. A video monitor and phone/intercom system at the kitchen desk to the right all you to see who is at the front gate and easily communicate with anyone in the home.

Photo 102Components are arranged so they are not the focus of the room, are convenient and easy to use. Rear panels in the component cabinet open to allow easy access to the back of the components for easy connection.

Top of Page

photo103Push a button on the Crestron Color Touchscreen and the room magically transforms from a beautiful sitting room to a home theater with a 110" wide movie picture.

Motorized shades lower to provide a darkened viewing environment. The lights gently lower to add drama to the room. The screen descends at the front of the the room, and the movie begins...

Top of Page

photo104One pair of Sonance Flush-mounted speakers are carefully positioned to provide even music throughout this dining and living area.

Top of Page

photo105A 27" TV magically appears at the foot of this bed from a custom-designed cabinet. When you are finished watching, the TV Descends and is out of sight and integrated into the furniture.

Top of Page

photo106Architecturally clean door and integrated handle details make this custom-designed entertainment cabinet in the Master Suite sitting area truly distinctive.

Top of Page

photo107Music enhances this living room. Invisible ceiling speakers make guests wonder where the sound is coming from.

Top of Page

photo108This living room features beautiful music from mini-speakers concealed at the top of the soffit facing up toward the wood ceiling.

Top of Page

photo109This central music system is located in an armoire in the Master Bedroom of this home built by a retired couple. Wall-mounted Audio Access keypads located throughout the home allow access to this system in 3 separate zones without having to operate the components themselves.
A central music system can be located anywhere that makes sense for the way you live in your home.

Top of Page

photo110This is another view of the central music system armoire showing why the owners spend so much time in the bedroom. Notice the beautiful oceanfront location on the Big Island of Hawaii. The ocean is just steps away from the Master Bedroom.

Top of Page

photo111A complete owner's manual binder and laminated instruction card (foreground on the trunk) are examples of the attention to detail that is part of a system from Design Systems, Ltd.

The central music system provides 3 separate zones of music listening in this home for a retired couple. Components are logically and neatly arranged in this armoire cabinet. A flush-mounted speaker (located above the armoire cabinet in the soffit) provides room-filling sound. Another speaker on the opposite soffit provides great stereo sound while lounging in bed and watching the blue Pacific that is just steps from the Master Retreat.

Top of Page

photo112This kitchen comes alive with the beautiful sound of music from flush-mounted ceiling speakers.
Although this home is located on the oceanfront, the speakers have stood the test of time and continue to perform beautifully 10 years after the original installation.

Top of Page

photo113This design features a custom cabinet designed to integrate a 35" TV into a compact room. The TV is placed at an angle to allow better viewing. A cabinet design consisting of different height elements reduces the bulk of the cabinet and provides a more sculptural appearance.

Top of Page

photo114This Siedle front door entry camera allows anyone in this 3-story penthouse to see who is at the door and speak with them from any phone in the home.

Top of Page

photo115This combination library/entertainment area houses a 35" TV that is out of sight when the doors to the cabinet are closed. Components housed below the TV allow music to be enjoyed in most rooms of this home.

Top of Page

photo116This combination library/ entertainment area houses a 35" TV that is out of sight when the doors to the cabinet are closed. Components housed below the TV allow music to be enjoyed in most rooms of this home.

Top of Page

photo117Rock speakers by Rockustics are located on this island entertaining area. (Try to find them!)
The rock speakers are at the bases of the palm trees to the left and right of the bridge. A weather-resistant volume control is located at the base of the bridge on the island side and allows tailoring the volume so it is just right for enhancing this awesome back yard.

Top of Page

photo118Audio controls come in many keypad and button styles to suit any decor.

Top of Page

photo119An outdoor speaker by Pioneer Electronics provides incredible sound, while also providing ambiant lighting. The enclosure is made out of Corian to ensure rugged durability in any environment.

Top of Page

photo120This entertainment design features a clean, fully exposed look. Access to component wiring is via a rear door behind the equipment that is located in the laundry room behind this entertainment center.
Flush ceiling-mounted left, right and surround speakers complement a center channel speaker and subwoofer located behind a matching fabric grill at the top of the cabinet. A 35" TV provides a great picture from any location in the room.

Top of Page

photo121Soothing music sets just the right mood for dining from discreet flush-mounted speakers located in the wall of this dining room. Can you find them?

Top of Page

photo122Music in this living room (with a beautiful view of Ala Moana Beach) is provided from speakers located in the dining room, adjacent and to the left of the living room. The study is located to the right.
You do not necessarily have to put speakers in the room in which you wish to enjoy music if you have a wide open floor plan. Very often, music coverage of an area can come from speakers located in an adjacent room.

Top of Page

photo123An entertainment system can be very sculptural and modern, as shown here.
This black entertainment cabinet, designed by Design Systems, Ltd. houses a 35" TV, houses both music and video components. High-performance, flush-mounted speakers are located in the walls that flank the center cabinet.

Top of Page

photo124A lighting control keypad is combined with an audio control keypad for reduced "wall clutter". These keypads are available in many finishes and colors.

Top of Page

photo125Mini-speakers by a/d/s/ (in white) are integrated into the books on these bookshelves to add the enjoyment of music to this home office.

Top of Page

photo126Imagine this is your breathtaking view from a rooftop penthouse deck. Waikiki and Diamond Head are in the background.
The gray pedestals near the railing are made of corian, and they contain both high-performance, weather-resistant outdoor speakers and low-voltage lighting. This solution provides the enjoyment of great sounding music without detracting from the view.

Top of Page

photo127Flush-mounted speakers in the soffit of this home enhance the lanai with beautiful Hawaiian music.

Top of Page

photo128Here is a "behind-the-scenes" view of one of our electronic systems. Cable TV distribution, phone/intercom and door entry systems are neatly terminated for easy expansion and changes in the future.
These details show some of the many details that demonstrate the careful thought and consideration given to each system designed by Design Systems, Ltd.

Top of Page

photo129This is an example of simple integration of an audio/video system into an existing bookshelf located in a small den/study.
A white grill cloth (to the left of the equipment) conceals a high-performance subwoofer for rich, full-range sound, without announcing "subwoofer". Two compact McIntosh bookshelf speakers provide detailed sound quality.

Top of Page

photo130Located in the sitting area of a master bedroom, this entertainment system was designed with speakers located below the display shelves, behind fabric grills.
The big-screen TV does not look bulky because only the picture area can be seen. The rest is concealed behind a removeable wood "face frame" that contributes to the clean appearance.

Top of Page

photo131Simple and sculptural, this Bang & Olufsen music system complements the contemporary decor of this home. The system sits on top of a contemporary buffet cabinet.

Top of Page

photo132Here is a wider view of the living room with an elegant Bang & Olufsen music system. Speakers are concealed on the bookshelf behind white fabric grills.

Top of Page

photo133In an open beam room, speakers are often difficult to position discreetly.
This solution was to mount them in the triangular storage space to the left and right of the loft area. If you look carefully, you can see the fabric grills located above the horizontal air-conditioning grills.

Top of Page

photo134TV and music make working out in this home gym more fun. Speakers and the TV are built into the cabinet containing towels and other accessories used in this room.

Top of Page

photo135Another view of the home gym shows a B&O remote sensor located above the light switch. (This system was done in the early 1980s.)

Top of Page

photo136Flush-mounted speakers are compact and discreet, yet great sounding.

Top of Page

photo137A video projector located below the custom coffee table projects to a curved screen for a watchable picture even with room shades open.
High-performance speakers are concealed behind the fabric that covers all walls in this beautiful room.

Top of Page

photo138This audio/video equipment cabinet combines high style with functionality. Access to the rear of the cabinet provides ease of equipment hookup. The top of the cabinet is open so that heat generated by the components is exhausted. The high-power amplifier is located at the top of the left stack of equipment so the heat it generates will not affect the other components.

Top of Page

photo139

A 45" rear-projection TV is flush-mounted into a corner of this room to provide great viewing from any angle.
Speakers are located behind the black fabric strip located above the TV and equipment. This system presents all components in full view.

Audio components are organized on the left, while video components are organized on the right.

Top of Page

photo140Another view of the same room. Corner-mounting of the 45" TV provides viewing from any position. High-fidelity sound comes from behind the black fabric strip above the TV/equipment.
Components are presented in full view, audio on the left and video on the right.
