HT / Audio Room lighting
« on: December 01, 2019, 14:31 »
Hi, there is plenty of threads with discussion on room treatment, speakers, electronics etc. I am wondering what most of you are using for lighting in your HT/Audio room. I believe design and lighting will affect the mood when enjoying your music/movies. Toying with the idea of installing some ambient or mood lights when listening to music (movies strictly off all lights) without much  major electrical revamp works. Hope to get some ideas from you guys.

Ambient light strip behind console
Philips Smalu variable lights (change temp and intensity)
Central pH5 pendant lamp for general illumination
Track lights with LED for display cabinets
Corner uplifter lamp for ambience
(plus some table lamps)
And a Atmos signboard....
Please post instead of sending a pm, so more can learn.

Nice! Keep the photos coming in. I ordered some cheap EL cold lights from China to try. Yet to arrive. Can't go big scale as I dun wanna touch electrical points.

Philips Hue is a good option...got Alexa and HomeKit support... led strips and lamps too (E27) so use in existing fittings.


only hassle is expensive and must use mobile/tablet to control or voice (Siri etc) or extra dimmer switch from Hue range. Can see at Philips showroom or apple shop too I think
I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

Life is short! Enjoy the music while it plays, when it stops, there might be a chair for you...or  maybe not.

I used to have their smart bulb (e27). Not bright enough for practical use I feel.
