Official Audio Supplier to Woodford United FC

BuyCleverStuff becomes Official Audio Supplier to Woodford United FC

BuyCleverStuff is proud to announce that we are now the official Audio Supplier to Northamptonshire non-League side, Woodford United FC.

Woodford United FC, whose Men’s First Team play their football in the Northamptonshire Combination Football League Premier Division, were on the lookout for an audio system to integrate in their main clubhouse, which was being renovated over the off-season, for use before and after games as well as for functions and other events.

When they contacted BuyCleverStuff, and the conversation turned to where and for what purpose the system was being used, it was by chance that BuyCleverStuff’s Marketing Manager, and former sports journalist, Rob Jeffries, was on the call.

“After speaking with Dean Haynes from Woodford United FC, and with my significant level of interest in sport, particularly grassroots sport, I was keen to take the time to talk with Dean about what their needs were and also a lot more about the club,” Rob said.

Partnership

“Whilst on the call, I took a look online at the history of the club, and also took on board the words of Dean and how the club wishes to progress over the next few years – and that’s when we decided to see if we could make our first real partnership with a sports team here at BuyCleverStuff, and as the Official Audio Supplier, it is a significant step for us.

“We cater to every possible scenario for Home Audio Visual solutions – whether that is for homes, businesses, or other similar organisations.

“Grassroots football, and clubs that are at the heart of the community, as Woodford United FC are, are vital to support, and there is the constant need for locals to support their sides in every way that they can, whatever team it is.

“Whether that is going to the games on Saturday afternoons as a spectator, volunteering behind the scenes with kit washing and social media, someone to make the utterly important halftime tea and coffee; anything to help is what this level of football, and the knock-on effect for local areas, needs.”

Systemline E50

The agreement as Official Audio Supplier saw BuyCleverStuff advise and provide Woodford United FC’s clubhouse with a brand new Systemline E50 with Two Pairs of 6.5″ PLM3 Ceiling Speakers.

It is perfect for use in such an area where fans will be able to be entertained pre and post-match, that connect either to Woodford United FC’s own music via Bluetooth or play through whatever is featured on their big screens using the ports on the rear of the Systemline E50.

The PLM3 Ceiling Speakers are also IP-rated so when the champagne flows for league and cup wins, the speakers need not to worry!

Rob went on to say: “BuyCleverStuff are extremely proud to support Woodford United FC and are more than happy to help the club in this way with our advice and products.

“To provide a system such as this which we know will be ideal to play the perfect celebration playlists after Woodford United FC victories – we’re honoured that Woodford United FC came to us and that we could work with the club in this way.

“Rest assured, as Official Audio Supplier, we are on hand for anyone connected to Woodford United FC, and beyond, with any future projects we can help with.”

At BuyCleverStuff, we wish all the very best to Woodford United FC for the remainder of this Men’s season, as well as the promising Women’s side who are growing their supporter base rapidly – we look forward to seeing the whole club’s progress over the next few years.

The Slow Mo Guys Do Audio Visual

The Slow Mo Guys: All Things Audio Visual (In Slow Motion)

Thursday morning we were looking on our YouTube channel at our latest product video we had uploaded for the soundmaster RCD1770 Portable FM / DAB Radio CD Player. Then up popped at the side a recommended video of The Slow Mo Guys filming paint ‘jumping’ in a speaker.

Needless to say, the first hour in the office this morning was essentially lost as we all huddled around one screen to watch that and even more of their enthralling videos out there on the Internet.

For those who don’t know about The Slow Mo Guys, they are a young British duo called Gavin Free and Daniel Gruchy, and they film things in slow motion (if you hadn’t already guessed from their channel name…).

They’ve been on YouTube since 2010, and use Phantom digital high-speed cameras to capture all the action, and with their YouTube channel now having over nine and a half MILLION subscribers, they are one of the most popular channels on the site – and put simply, a couple of awesome dudes!

Gavin has also worked on a number of high-profile projects on the small and big screen using slow motion footage – Top Gear and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows are amongst his working credits.

After the sixth video though this morning, we had to stop and get back on with work, but we decided to get Rob in the BuyCleverStuff office to put together a YouTube playlist of The Slow Mo Guys’ best audio visual slow-motion videos.

So if you have the next hour to spend doing nothing, then why not watch these fellas in action destroying CDs, using speakers incorrectly, and mesmerising you with AV in a way that you did not think was possible…we don’t recommend doing this with your purchases from us though.

In fact, we suggest you do not try any of this at home – especially as some videos from The Slow Mo Guys on the playlist are EXTREMELY dangerous (shards of CDs are not nice at all in the face – we assume?).

Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel, and speaking of videos our Lithe Audio competition is still on Facebook, running until the end of August 2017 – so enter now!

Featured BuyCleverStuff Demonstration Showroom Products

As part of our BuyCleverStuff Demonstration Showroom, we selected a number of different products to install that give as good a sense of what to expect if installed in your kitchen or bathroom.

With the sheer range of products we have to purchase over on our main website, it was a tough choice to decide, but over the coming weeks and months we will be showcasing as many products as possible through videos posted online, so keep checking back here and at BuyCleverStuff.co.uk.

If you are thinking of visiting us to see the products fitted and installed, but we have a product in stock that is not installed that you would like to view, we are more than happy to demonstrate this for you.

Below is a short guide of the products we have installed and how they look in our demonstration showroom:

SoundMaster DAB2035A simple under cabinet radio with FM and DAB/DAB+ radio available. Finished in silver with brushed steel effect, it complements most other kitchen appliances you may have. Stations can be preset and it features useful functions such as calendar, alarm and cooking timer, all of which are displayed on the front LED panel.

 

SoundMaster UR2040Similar to the DAB2035, the UR2040, which comes in both silver or white, incorporates Bluetooth technology to pair with your smartphone or tablet to play audio from these devices. With handy LED under cabinet light to allow you to carry out quick kitchen tasks with ease in dim lighting, and double the amount of available presets for radio compared to the DAB2035.

 

SoundMaster UR2170For some, having the ability to play their CD collection is a major factor in their kitchen audio solution, which is why the UR2170, in silver or white, is the perfect answer. With similar radio functions to our other under cabinet offerings in our showroom, all three give you an idea of what potentially you can do to solve your kitchen audio headache.

 

VSKTV102B Flipdown TVOur smallest screen size in our range of Flipdown Kitchen TVs is the Visua 10″ Flipdown Kitchen TV with DVD Player.

Simple to install, with Freeview TV tuner,  and features additional connections for HDMI, USB and even SD Card slot.

Available in three colours, in Matt Black (as seen in our showroom), Gloss Black and also Gloss White.

 

VSKTV133P Flipdown TVSleek and stylish in design, this larger Visua screen provides a superb viewing experience through its LED Backlit 13.3” LCD Panel. With a host of useful input connections, it is adaptable for other sources, and comes with built in multi-region DVD Player; without doubt our most functional Flipdown Kitchen TV on offer at BuyCleverStuff.

 

SOVOS 15" Flipdown TVFor those looking for an even bigger screen to drop down from under their cabinet, this 15″ model from SOVOS ticks that box. Whilst it may not have the additional features our other units have, which its previous model had, the demand for a screen of this size was overwhelming and gives you, our valued customers, the widest range of Kitchen Flipdown TV sizes available.

 

E100 SystemlineWe have a range of in wall amplifier systems, but the latest E100 from Systemline is the next step in style and functionality. With integrated Bluetooth and amplifier (a development from the E200 predecessor), this touch panel also comes with built in FM and DAB / DAB+ radio. Combined with high quality 6.5″ Qi65CB Ceiling Speakers, this system is perfect not just in kitchens and bathrooms (IP54 rated), but around the home.

 

Mando In Wall Bluetooth ReceiverWhilst we do a range of double gang sized in wall panel systems, sometimes our customers look for a simple, single gang, Bluetooth only solution, which is exactly what the Mando BT In Wall Bluetooth Audio Receiver provides. Built in Bluetooth receiver and amplifier with 3.5mm front facing jack input for any other sources you may want to use, all able to fit neatly in a single gang back box. Available in different coloured fascias, featured black, white and grey, and also with smaller 2.5″, and larger 6″, ceiling speakers.

BT550 Bluetooth Shower SpeakerA simple, yet effective Bluetooth Bathroom Shower Speaker which features the great sound quality you come to expect from SoundMaster, for those who are restricted from having ceiling speakers, would struggle installing a Bluetooth Bathroom Mirror in such a room, or just require something to fit safely within their shower – available not just in silver/grey but also green and blue, and at a fantastic low price.

FM and DAB radio with Bluetooth connectivity plays audio through high quality built in stereo speakers with 20 Watt amplifier, and the ability to connect to an external stereo ceiling speaker if preferred, together with multiple recess options when installing; it makes this Bluetooth Bathroom Mirror from MIER an obvious choice to display in our demonstration showroom.

 

KB iSelect 5" Bluetooth FM DAB Ceiling Radio SystemWe know from our feedback when customers come to us that there are many options to choose from with the KB iSelect. In order to be able to demonstrate every function of this Ceiling Speaker System, we have chosen to install in our showroom the KB iSelect FM / DAB Radio & Bluetooth model. Through our switch system installed in our showroom, we can operate the KB iSelect through 2.5″, 5″ and also 6″ ceiling speakers in order to demonstrate roughly what you would expect to hear depending upon your choice of ceiling speaker.

 

Various Custom SwitchesThree-way and volume control switches are available to accompany a wide selection of our systems, control audio from room to room and also level of volume. This is just a small selection of switches which we have installed as examples to control the vast array of ceiling speaker systems, audio mirrors and visual products in our demonstration showroom, but if you have a particular colour and finish to your switches at home, we can custom match to complement the switches you already have either in your home or plan to have fitted at the end of your build.

Unveiling the BuyCleverStuff Demonstration Showroom

In May 2015, BuyCleverStuff moved into new premises in order to grow as a business, and with it came one major new addition in the form of a new demonstration showroom in our office.

It has long been our intention to create a space where we can install products that we stock, for customers to visit and view them in realistic kitchen and bathroom environments, and also somewhere we can produce in-house product videos to post online.

We know that our customers have wanted this too for some time with many requests to visit to see and hear the products we stock beyond our main purchase website, so we decided we would do just that.

As you can see from the timeline of images below, it’s been a very interesting, and lengthy, process from the room we originally started out with, together with the design concepts and planning, the hard work put into constructing and decorating of the room and finally the installation of products to complete the transformation.

So there you have it – from a room that was bare brickwork but for a carpet and radiator, into an adaptable space for our kitchen and bathroom audio visual products. We can now showcase to our customers our available products first hand or through our upcoming in-depth YouTube videos to allow for better understanding, more than ever, of everything you need to know when it comes to audio visual within your home.
