How They Did It: Small But Elegant

Ed Wenck
Feb 20, 2020



This beautiful, budget-minded media room by Japanese firm Glance has a Kikuchi 120-inch screen that raises to reveal a 65-inch Panasonic OLED 4K TV. It’s the very definition of a “media room” — it’s a space that’s used for more than total, immersive focus on a movie, show or sporting event.

The room can be used for dedicated movie viewing with the Epson 4K projector and screen or be instantly adapted for more “social” events, such as sports broadcasting — hence the TV screen.



Free-standing and in-ceiling Linn speakers are put to great use here, both sonically and aesthetically. A single B&W subwoofer provides the low frequencies, and a Denon amp and AMX controller round out the AV systems.

An easy-to-use iPad controller, coupled with elegant Panasonic lighting control panels match the look and feel of this room.

The same is true of the cabinet holding the equipment rack with its understated elegance and clever, dedicated illumination.



CEDIA’s judges were very impressed by the challenges the integrator overcame given the room they were handed: It’s small, and there are a lot of hard surfaces. LINN speakers were chosen by Glance to provide a smooth, natural sound in this environment.

Additionally, although this is a media room, Glance faithfully calibrated a Dolby 5.1.4-channel sound system that’s worthy of any dedicated home cinema.

The project won the 2019 CEDIA Award for Best Media Room, Level I, Asia Pacific.
