Have an idea to help boost your audio? We can make it happen! Want to listen to music as you go about your day at home? We'd love to help. From huge sound for the big game, or soft music for white noise, we work with you to make your vision transform into a reality.
Want your speakers to be heard, but not seen? No problem! We can make the speakers disappear into the wall or ceiling without compromising product or sound quality. Clean and classic to bold and modern, we deliver.
If you use the TV's built-in speakers to play audio, you have no idea what you're missing. A vast majority of TV shows, movies, and gaming content supports at least a 5.1 surround sound format- meaning the sounds are carefully separated into channels and distributed between individual speakers and low-frequency subwoofers placed around you. Playing audio through an external speaker system brings to life the subtle nuances that would otherwise go unnoticed, not to mention the sense of sound directionality and rich, resonating audio that you just can't get from the TV itself.
Luckily, there are plenty of options to create the surround sound system that is perfect for you. We can use in-wall, in-ceiling, external cabinet speakers, or a combination of them to provide ideal sound in your space. Have a specific idea in mind for your surround sound system? Whether you are thinking of an entry-level 5.1 system, a sophisticated and immersive 7.2.4 setup, or anything in between, we'd be happy to dig into it with you!
For all you 2-piece projection fans out there, we can even conceal the front speakers behind the projector screen for a stunningly clean look. Acoustically Transparent screen material allows the screen to be the focus, not the look of the speakers.
I know what you are thinking: Won't that muffle or mute the sound? Not necessarily. Screen Innovation's micro-perforated acoustically transparent screens have a pattern of 30,000 half-millimeter sized holes in just one square foot of screen space. We challenge you to notice the difference.

Distributed & Whole-Home Audio
Don't confine your audio to just one area, spread the love! Many audio/video receivers these days offer the capability to mirror the sound to speakers in a separate zone or room. Better yet, some more advanced receivers can play two different audio sources at a time, allowing you to watch a movie in surround sound in one room, and rock out to your favorite music in another. The highest-quality receivers have mastered distributing two different audio and video sources. Two individual zones of entertainment, one receiver.
Our go-to Yamaha receivers all have the capabilities to either mirror the original source, or they can play a different source in a second zone. The masterful Yamaha Aventage RX-A3080 and RX-A2080 can perform both mirroring and separate sources, whichever fits your needs.
And what if that's not enough? Maybe you want multiple zones in the kitchen, basement, livingroom, master bathroom, and outside. Not a problem, we'll just dive more into the custom realm for this. We can set your house up so that the same music plays in all rooms, or mix it up with a different song in each zone. Want rock concert volume in the backyard, but have zen background music in the livingroom? With our variety of customized audio solutions, we can make all of it happen.
A Project Manager will visit your home to perform a walk-through with you, discussing how your ideal audio system will function and assessing what products would be best suited for you.
What is Atmos?
Dolby Atmos delivers multi-dimensional sound with amazing clarity that envelopes you in an immersive soundscape. Feel a deeper connection to the stories (and music) you love with Dolby's innovative Atmos technology.
Thanks to Dolby Atmos, individual sounds are freed from their speaker channels and are precisely placed in the room to move around you, including overhead and down low, encompassing you in each scene or chorus.
Dolby Atmos requires at least 2 Atmos-enabled speakers or add-on modules to be effective, though 4 speakers are recommended for more precisely located and realistic overhead sounds.
How do you get it?
In order to get the Atmos experience, your content provider needs to offer Dolby-coded entertainment, and your device must be Dolby Atmos enabled, such as your soundbar or receiver.
Overhead sound can be achieved a variety of ways:
Atmos is available on a wide range of devices at various price points, and your favorite streaming service should have a library of Dolby content ready to enjoy. If you are a Netflix, Disney+, Vudu or AppleTV subscriber, they are prepared for you. Each of them already have Dolby-enabled options that you can explore.
Not just for the TV
Don't neglect your tunes! Dolby Atmos doesn't just make your shows and movies sound astounding, it brings all of your music to life in a way you could never dream.
