A Brief History

A Family run company since 1957

Leeds Home Cinema is owned and operated by West Yorkshire home technology specialists Definitions Ltd. This small family owned company was established by Mr George Simpson in 1957 to sell domestic appliances to the people of Calderdale and Kirklees. Within a few short years the company was also retailing Television and music systems, going on to become one of the highest regarded Panasonic / Technics dealers in the north of England. In the late 1980’s, the decision was taken to move wholly into TV, Hi-Fi and home entertainment and the company changed its name to Audiovision (Yorkshire) Ltd. By the early 90’s and now in the ownership of  George’s sons John and Stephen,  they were the first people in Yorkshire to sell widescreen television and Dolby Pro-Logic home cinema systems, as well as carrying out the first demonstrations of DVD. During this period the demand for bespoke private cinemas began to grow and Audiovision found themselves doing more and more of these projects. During 2004 it was decided that the best way forward for the company was to concentrate solely on the custom installation side of the business. With this decision came a change of name and a move to new premises. Definitions Ltd was born and now operates out of a dedicated design office with demonstration facilities more akin to those found in a home. Since then they have been 7 times runner up in CEDIA’s annual awards, the winner of an Artcoustic ‘Install Of The Month’ award, and runner up in the Crestron awards in 2009. Their projects have been featured in consumer magazines and on the cover of industry publications. Clients have included people from the world of international football, entertainment and leaders of industry. Now in 2011, Definitions is still a company with a great vision and a bright future.
