One of the most common challenges we face is one similar to what healthcare professionals face. Customers bring us in to fix a butchered attempt to set up a multimedia environment, instead of reaching out to us before committing to a purchase. For a home theatre environment to deliver the best possible audio and video, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and a professional consultation can save the homeowner thousands of dollars and significantly improve the quality and equity of their home installation.
Why ask the pro?
