Are you considering creating an entertainment space where friends and family enjoy the latest movies, TV series, concerts, and major sporting events? For many, this translates to a home theater, a room that offers all the visual and audio splendor of the local movie theater.

You lose yourself in every guitar riff, vocal, and drum beat, experiencing it as if at a live recording or sitting in the studio. 

How do you know when you’re listening to hi-fi quality music? When you listen to your favorite recording, the on you’ve heard a hundred times before, it will be as if you’re hearing it for the first time.

Ever hear the adage “What was old, is new again”?  So true in the 2-Channel world with vinyl’s, turntables, speakers, headphones, amplifiers and the like.  In the ’80s and ’90s, culture was going from the big boom box to getting tunes on your watch.  The mad rush to be as small as possible left a lot to be desired as technology strained to keep up with the quality of the original piece.  Fast forward as an entire generation learned that newer is not always better after listening to the same song on vinyl versus a digital download.  Luckily, sound engineers and technology have advanced to provide a balanced solution.  But, let’s be real nothing compares to a real cool turn table in your music room that also delivers the whole package.

Peek-A-Boo

Now you see it, now you don’t.  Now you hear it, and now you really hear it.  While flat-panel televisions are the norm in most homes and commercial buildings; it is now not uncommon to guess where it might be in the room.  No longer, “Where is Waldo?” or artwork covering the family jewels.  In today’s modern home the design possibilities are endless due to the flat panel display and the high tech quality of sound and picture. 

I am mesmerized by the flat panel televisions that literally disappear in a room along with the Planar video walls which must be active 24/7.  It has been said women tend to prefer the disappearing tv but let’s be authentic as it is 2019 and many of the cosmopolitan men who enter our showroom love the discreetness just the same.  If you have 16 games to watch at the same time Planar would be the best choice for you or if you want a crystal clear fishbowl as if you were the fish – nothing compares.  And, if you do not want anyone to know where this beauty is … you dream it, we design it.
