Responds within a day

Introduction: I am a very experienced and well trained industry professional that and perfectionist, detail oriented and able to make sophisticated systems easy to work with for everyone When we do wall mounts we try our utmost to minimize the number and size of holes needed, if any, and rarely ever leave a job that needs patching or painting. I like the feeling of satisfaction when a job is completed and done right, an acoustically superb home theater or a simple TV hanging over a fireplace. Please allow for an adequate time to respond, if I am working on a jobsite I will not be able to respond right away. I service, calibrate, fix and rewire malfunctioning and poorly performing Home Theater systems, but I DO NOT do physical repairs of individual defective or broken components, such as amplifiers, speakers, GAME CONSOLES, disc players, TV's, broken HDMI ports etc. PLEASE CONTACT ELECTRONICS REPAIR SHOPS for those situations, as Thumbtack’s service category descriptions don’t differentiate repair service from system maintenances and corrections I do. I get many requests to fix broken ports on game consoles, but sorry that is something for a repair shop

Eric did a superb job setting me up with a large Sonos Amp-based system, both indoor and outdoor plus lots of hard wiring. He is responsive and a good guy, but his best qualities are his honesty and his perfectionism. He wants the job done right, he has high standards, and he tells the truth. Can’t think of higher praise — definitely recommend!

Eric is AMAZING at what he does. I needed a very special setup because I do audio monitoring over ethernet at my studio (in a building next to but not connected to my house) and needed two separate networks that were both secure. He ran about 20 custom made cables according to my schematic that was incredibly weird and difficult but tailored to my particular situation. It all works perfectly, and there’s not an inch of unused cable anywhere or showing. The ethernet jacks in the walls are all level and tidy. And, he cleaned up like it was his home! I am incredibly impressed by his work. I waited about 6 months after discussing my project with 25~ other possible techs and he was the only person who was knowledgeable enough to even approach my project. He’s VERY busy (which is a double edged sword if you’re an impatient guy like me) but he’s worth the wait. You get what you’re willing to wait for in life!!! Also, he’s incredibly affordable for the high quality custom work he provides. My house was built in the 50’s and it’s always a pain to navigate the little awkward stuff they used to do, but it was not a problem. Sidenote: Eric is a little chatty (which I don’t mind at all; I love to hear stories and stuff) but he didn’t charge me for any time we spent talking about Star Trek 🖖 or audio gear from the old days. If you’re not looking for a conversation during the work, I’d let him know up front! Nicest guy in the world, and I’m going to have him come back and set up a full monitoring system at the beginning of 2022 when we build the next monitoring room! Thank you Eric!!!

Eric was phenomenal! We’ll be a customer of his for life. He worked very efficiently setting up our new tv, receiver, and universal remote. Eric truly went above and beyond for us and was kind enough to patiently walk me through our new set up - even after he left. We’re very thankful we found Eric and would highly recommend his services to anyone.

Eric came out on the agreed upon time and date and got us all set up with our audio needs. He re-wired old speakers and hooked up our system which is exactly what we wanted. Thanks Eric!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I have varied pricing systems depending on project size and scope. One size does NOT fit all

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I work with home owners, contractors, architects. My first priority is finding out what there known and unknown needs are and budget expectations. I try to figure out who will use the equipment and how. It's an interview, basically.

    I have been trained/certified by many manufacturers and thru CEDIA courses as well Manufacturers training included MacIntosh, Marantz, Denon, Sony and Sony ES, Control4, JVC, Panasonic, Draper, Pioneer, Monitor Audio, Bose, Screen Innovations, Integra and Onkyo, URC, RTi, B&W, Dahlquist, Kef, JBL, Harmon Kardon, Klipsch, Sonos, Stewart Film Scren, Heos, Russound, Niles and many others during 30 years working with Audio Video systems. Completed specialized courses in Home Theater and Audio Studio construction and Design, Acoustics and Surround Technologies. Also trained in Networking and Wireless networks, Cable and Satellite Distribution Systems and Electrical Wiring, I am also familiar with home construction techniques and all pre-wire work will pass relevant inspections from framing to electrical and fire/sprinkler.
