Audio/Video Systems and Control

      



This is a picture taken of a paused screen. What we can do now is amazing.


Upgrades



We can update your current system. We are experienced with all major brands. We can install streaming video and streaming audio. We can add Netflix, Pandora and other applications.

We can update your equipment or add high definition satellite, Blu-ray DVD or a projector and screen. We can also integrate you iPod with remote control.

We can also install surveillance cameras that can be viewed on all TVs by going to a specific channel number. You can also see these cameras on the Internet when away from home. These cameras can even see in the dark and we can also record what the camera sees.

If you still have Dolby ProLogic sound, we can upgrade you to the new digital technology. Then you can enjoy the benefits of the newer high definition DSS satellite and progressive scan DVD players. Once you experience digital 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1 sound, you'll never go back to old analog. It's like going from an old cassette tape to a CD.

We can make your current system sound fantastic with new speakers with Titanium horn tweeters. The tweeters are actually metal (not the old paper or plastic design like you have now). These new speakers produce amazingly crisp and clean high end concert-like sound. You won't believe the difference.

Need an easy to use universal remote with a lighted touch screen to get rid of all that complicated mess of remotes or an in-wall control panel like the one to the right? Want music throughout the house (with control in each room)? Perhaps you would like to watch your satellite or DVD in other rooms. Or maybe you would like great sounding music outside.

Best of all, we can hide your equipment out of sight in a cabinet or closet and you can still control it with a simple control system (use your existing remotes or a universal remote) or the in-wall control panel like the one to the right.

Multi-Room Audio/Video, and Home Theater pages.

New Systems



We can do a survey of your home and design and install a new digital system for your music and video applications. We will determine what brands and configurations are best suited for your applications as well as your room's dimensions and acoustics.

We are experienced with all major brands of equipment and all the popular applications. We can install streaming video and streaming audio. We can add Netflix, Pandora and other applications.

We can add high definition satellite, Blu-ray DVD or a projector and screen. We can also integrate you iPod with remote control.

We can identify sonic problems with your space and compensate with creative solutions. Our systems can be installed without any exposed wires.

We can hide the equipment out of sight in a cabinet or closet (you can still operate it with a simple control system). Or we can use stylish European components that look like works of art that you will want to showcase. We can also install surveillance cameras that can be viewed on all TVs by going to a specific channel number.

We can put music throughout the house, outside on the patio or at the pool. We can do outside music that sounds great using in-ground subwoofers. It's perfect for relaxing as well as entertaining (without disturbing the neighbors). We can install in-wall or in-ceiling speakers that can be painted to match and virtually disappear. We can install individual controls in each room and outside.

We are skilled on all the latest cabling, power protection and control systems. We can prewire your new home (for now and the future) or retrofit your existing home.

We can make your system easy to control with in-wall keypads like the one on the right (the size of a double light switch) in any or all rooms. You can turn system on/off, switch between sources (CD, satellite music, radio, etc.), control all sources (play, pause, change tracks, change CDs, change radio stations, volume up/down, mute, etc.). We can also do a simple to use universal remote with a lighted touch screen to get rid of all those complicated remotes.

We can also install surveillance cameras that can be viewed on all TVs by going to a specific channel number. These cameras can even see in the dark and we can also record what the camera sees.

If you would like to maximize the use of your equipment, we can design and install an integrated zoned whole house system
so you can share components (see Multi-Room Audio/Video). Or we can design and install separate standalone systems, so you can do your thing and the kids can do theirs.

For the audiophile that wants accurate sound, we sell the all the professional studio series lines by JBL (recognized as a world leader in high end speakers). We will determine the perfect speakers for your music and/or video applications.


We can automate the system, so all sorts of things happen (lights dim, drapes close, turns on all equipment, bring up music or video, etc.- all with one button). See Home Automation page.

Check out the multi-room audio/video and shared systems sections. Also browse the many products & services listed in that section below. We can also service your equipment.

Most audio/video component manufactures do a better job at some things than they do at others. In some cases, they are know for one thing. Further, some companies do a better job in making components for audio and others do a better job for video.

Your local audio/video store is usually limited to the select product lines they represent. This sometimes results in them pushing an entire product line from one company on you to complete a system (which usually ends up in disappointment).

We will determine your application mix and design a system with individually selected pieces that best suit your specific needs. Some are better for movies, some for sports, some for music, some for general viewing (TV, news, etc.) and some for a cross blend of all. Your application is as unique as you are (so your system should be tailored).



We can mix and match brands and components as needed to get you the best possible result, since we are an independent company. This opens up new possibilities for you not available at your local audio/video store.

Below is a small sampling of the many brands we can use. Of course, we are in no means limited to the few companies shown.

Multi-Room Audio/Video



      Also see
Multi-Room Audio/Video page  Go

We can do separate systems or we can do a whole house house system that can be easily controlled individually in each room. Either way, you can do your thing and the kids can do theirs (play different music in different rooms at the same time, watch different satellite television in different rooms at the same time, etc.).

We can supply the entire house with one set of components (CD, VCR, DVD, satellite, etc.) that we can hide away in cabinetry or a closet. This will save you from having to buy duplicate components by sharing them. And it eliminates the clutter of all that equipment throughout your home. You can then watch your satellite or DVD in other rooms, have music throughout the house, out on decks, at the pool, etc.

We put in-wall (or in-ceiling) speakers that can be painted to match. You can control one of three ways: in-wall control pads, in-wall sensors that you point your remote at or in-wall volume controls.

Shared Systems Integration

We can also integrate and share other systems throughout your home. This also saves money by not duplicating equipment.

  • Whole House Music
  • Multi-Room Video
  • Outside Music
  • Sharing Audio/Video Components
  • Audio/Video Control in Each Room
  • Cameras Seen on All TVs
  • Multi-line Telephone with Intercom
  • Sharing Fast DSL Internet
  • Talk to Front Door or Gate on Phone
  • Open Front Door or Gate over Phone
  • Sharing Computer Data, Printers, Fax, Software, Scanner, etc.
  • Dial Into Office and Work From Home
  • Centrally Control All Lighting


For example, you can share one high speed DSL Internet connection for all the computers in your home. You pay for only one inexpensive connection, instead of a separate connection for each computer every month. This will save you thousands of dollars over the years.

Other examples are being able to view cameras on all TVs, talking to gate or door intercoms through the phone, a computer network to share files, printers, fax, software, etc. We can also integrate lighting control and other systems.

Service



We can come to your home, diagnose the problem, repair the problem there if possible or take the defective item in for repair if necessary. We will then return the repaired item and reinstall it, rebalance your system, etc.

Don't waste your time, getting all the more frustrated while you do without service. Simply give us a call and we will take it from there.

Equipment today is far too complicated to try and diagnose, let alone repair, without experience.
