How do you extend HDMI cables from one area in the home to another without spending a fortune or compromising signal loss? The answer is an HDMI balun. The balun allows you to extend HDMI far beyond that of regular HDMI cables using standard Ethernet networking cables. We'll cover the in's and outs for picking the right options when deciding on which balun is right for HDMI distribution.

In some cases different rooms need to listen to different sources at the same time, multiple amps/receivers are required for that to happen. Use one amp/receiver for each listening (a zone refers to one or more rooms that listen to the same source simultaneously). An amp or receivers can be stacked together and the source inputs can be shared ( 1 CD, 1AppleTV, 1 DSS shared amongst 2 or more amp/receivers). To control the volume and source from each zone, a zoned Infrared (IR) distribution system can be added here or an app can control these functions through a system processor in some cases as well.

Half the joy for us is still in the design process. Inspiring the clients by sharing ideas and possible projects we can help them with from our experiences.

​We love a challenge. A client removed some interior walls in a newly constructed penthouse allowing our company to add a larger entertainment product. It gave us great joy and opportunity to truly fulfill our clients vision. In the end, the project proved to be a show stopper. The commitment and dedication to our craft shows in our work and the final product. 

Our designs have been appreciated for years in both new homes and remodel design sites featuring progressive AV designers.

While approval from our clients is the ultimate source of professional happiness, we'd be lying if we said we didn't enjoy the type of professional validation that comes from peer recognition.  These aren't just any designs, either. They definitely incorporate complex planning and provide functional harmony … Houzz.com Best Award 2014

​Every space is different. Every client has their unique reason for wanting their system to exist.


We might produce a thousand ideas before arriving at the perfect one for a project or client. It's a necessary part of the creative design process and one that we take seriously. Here's how we do it:


  • Start with a face to face project meeting on site or at the store for a chance to get the feel of the client and the project scope.

  • Create a map using key functional needs and design elements in the clients "goals interview."

  • Use the outline to arrive at the three to five top project objectives and learn their style of life.

  • Use the top 3-5 project objectives to brainstorm project goals.

  • Put project objectives and goals aside for 1-2 days to let them marinate while researching equipment candidates.

  • Rigorously review goals and objectives to assign a priority ranking and qualify your results repeatedly.

  • Create project plans based on goals and objectives that includes real life control needs. There will be operational parties involvement in the design as well.
