The Intellisys Theatre
M&K Sound’s documented history as designer and builder of exclusive, deluxe home entertainment installations spans many decades, beginning at the top as partner of choice for leading movie stars, composers, musicians, sound engineers, directors and studio executives.
To this very day, a substantial proportion of music and movie recording, sound design, editing, mixing and mastering facilities employ M&K Sound. So it comes as no surprise that many key industry fgures, after experiencing M&K at work, also select M&K for their private home entertainment systems. Many distributors and retailers around the globe have learned the same lesson: Once you’ve worked with M&K, you want to play with M&K.
The story of Des Dass, founder of Intellisys in New Zealand, specialists in Home Automation, Multi-Room AV and Home Theatre, is a classic example: Des explains,
“Over the past 40+ years, I have been exposed to and have owned many fine examples of English, American and Japanese sound equipment – both consumer and pro – but we rate the M&K Sound S150 among the finest loudspeakers for our home theatre builds. As a sound source, they are www.mksound.com very precise, giving great sound imaging when placed behind an acoustically transparent screen. You can clearly follow the action and dialog on our 155” anamorphic screen. The MX-350 subs go right down to 20Hz but are fast and punchy and mate perfectly with the 150’s.”
Established in 2002, Intellisys operates out of managing director Des Dass’ luxurious cliff top home located in sunny Gulf Harbour, just north of Auckland City. The residence is also a truly impressive demonstration facility for automation and home theatre systems.
A lifelong Hi-Fi enthusiast, Des purchased his frst serious stereo system in his late teens. In the mid 70’s, while studying at Waikato University, he formed a rock band. Over the following decades, his interest in music and passion for playing the drums contributed to his keen sense for full, live theatrical sound and is the basis for all Intellisys AV designs.
