17 Apr Are You Spending Too Much on Your AV Installation?
“Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” –Warren Buffett
There’s an old adage that says, “You get what you pay for.” If you’re considering a home audio installation, one of out many considerations is what type of equipment will best suit your needs. The most expensive must be the best, right? Well, not exactly. What if I told you that often there is very little perceptible difference between a pair of $500 speakers and another pair of $2000 speakers? While some people can pick up on minute differences in sound quality (we call these people audiophiles), most of our clients simply cannot hear the difference between great quality, moderately priced equipment that has been properly installed and calibrated, and the ultra high end stuff. The law of diminishing returns inevitably kicks in at a certain point. And while custom-installed audio/video systems are never cheap, everyone wants to feel like they are spending their money wisely.
In terms of audio equipment, what you’re really looking for is good frequency response, a good dynamic range, low distortion and good sound dispersion. It’s not about the most innovative look or about the price point. It’s all about how the product was designed and how much consideration went into the quality of sound that it puts out. But more importantly, you will need expert installation, excellent sound, reliability and ease of use. Our goal is to provide the customer with not only an incredible setup, but one that is easy enough for everyone to use.
We want to customize your system to fit what you are looking for. You may be an audiophile that loves listening to music. You want to immerse yourself in the music so that you hear every bass line, every guitar riff and crystal clear vocals. Or perhaps you are a cinephile that wants to bring the movie theater experience home. Maybe you want to not only hear but feel the explosions in your favorite action movie, or you want to be surrounded by the musical score of your favorite motion picture. Whatever your interest may be, we will find the proper solution for you.
The best way to get the best value from your installation is to have a trusted advisor to hold your hand and walk you through the design and installation process. This will ensure that the end result is exactly what you want it to be. A trustworthy and reliable home AV advisor should have years of experience in not only audio and video, but also computer networking, construction and customer service. Being committed to staying on top of the latest innovations is paramount in order for the customer to receive the highest service and value. This is achieved by ongoing training and education that is always up to date. The advisor should also be able to show examples of past work and have a solid group of references. Hopefully this information will help make the selection process simpler for you. At HomePro Audio and Video, we are committed to ensuring that each and every customer receives a level of quality commensurate with what they desire.
