Home Theater Heaven

November 7, 2009

I founded  Audio Visionaries in 1995 based on a cliché; Champagne tastes on a beer budget. Since then, we have had the privilege of installing thousands of home theaters, whole house audio systems and home automation. And every system represents value. Yeah, that’s what everyone says, and hopefully that’s what everyone strives for. But for me, it’s a passion. Heard the phrase “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”? That’s me; I go to work each day with Martin Scorcese, Cary Grant, Jennifer Garner, Matt Damon, well you get the idea. And music, it is so cool to sit down and just listen; a glass of wine, and Damien Rice, or total obscurity like Moby Grape; and rediscovering Big Star? Thirteen is so new millennial, but it’s from the seventies.

To say that I’m blessed would be an understatement; watching your favorite movie on a 102″ diagonal screen with phenomenal audiophile clarity is nothing short of awesome. And to do it everyday, I assure you, it never gets old. I hope through this blog to share my love of movies and music, hints on how to get the very most from your system, or how with our help you can get a theater of your own. In 15 years (and a dozen years before) I have sought out the very best in home theater equipment, acoustics, and design; but, and this is key, the greatest performance while still being affordable; sure everyone has their opinions, and we’re bound to spark discussion on what really is performance.

Currently, I feel the best projectors for the money come from a company known for their outstanding video, Sony. From a sub-$3k  1080p LCoS projector to what our industry critics and reviewers  hail as the finest projector for less than $20k, The VPL  VW85Sony vpl vw85 at less than $8k! Recently I watched the Blu Ray Hi-Def version of Steve McQueen’s “Bullitt” and it was incredible.

So kick back, pour a glass and enjoy…..
