Sometimes, only the best will do - Sagaponack, NY

The owner of a newly-built house in Sagaponack knew what he needed to turn the two-story traditional into his dream home: a classically-elegant look and feel and high-tech automation that would work for both his entertainment and professional needs.

First, he brought in Young Huh, famous for high-end interiors. Then he turned to Cresendo Designs. One of only a few home technology companies in the nation with the capabilities to design and install an integrated, high-end system of this caliber, Crescendo rewired and retrofitted the entire house from top to bottom.

"This home truly has it all-the best of the best," says Steve Berry, senior design consultant. "From multi-room audio and video systems with digital media to a high-end home office and dedicated theater room, this is a masterpiece of technology and design." It's all controlled-in home or remotely-using a Crestron home integration system, installed by Crescendo, a Crestron DM certified integration company and programmer.

"The video distribution system delivers full HD to all the Runco plasma TVs throughout the house," Berry explains. "This means you can select from a variety of sources for any room, all from the same equipment rack." The audio system includes USB jacks that connect high-end DACs, digital media storage with NAS drive, high-end CD players, iPod, Kaleidescape and Crestron ADMS.

But the audio system's showpiece is in the home office, he notes, which features a pair of Focal Grand Utopia EM speakers powered by a Sim Audio complete audio system.

When the owner's not working, he can now sit back and relax in one of the custom alligator chairs in his luxury theater room, equipped with Classe CT processor and amps, B&W Custom Theater speakers, Digital Projection Titan 3D projector with 2.35 Autoscope and a separate Karaoke system with programmable LED light show.
