After moving to Loveland in August of 2013, I began reaching out to A/V installers and Home Theater builders in Northern Colorado. It was a bit discouraging at first, because it's hard to distinguish between those who only work on million-dollar projects - and those that can help mere mortals like myself. That's when I heard back from Randy Revak at Sound Investments. Randy assured me that my budget was reasonable, and that he could definitely work through the challenges of short ceilings and sound isolation, all while focusing on a final product that would exceed my expectations. A tough thing, to be sure - I'm no novice in this hobby, and if I'm honest, I'm kind of picky.
I visited Randy's demo theater and saw his workshop in Greeley. I left impressed with his work. The demonstration was done all with speakers and subwoofers that Randy had built himself.
Fast forward to April 2014. It was time to decide if this project was going to happen or not. With some encouragement from my wife, we met with Randy and he gave us a proposal and showed us some sketches of how he would build the room. Over the next week we ironed out every detail and he answered each of my questions, and work began soon after.
It took about six weeks from our first sit-down to the finished product, and I couldn't be happier. I have the dedicated theater I've always dreamed about, complete with 11 custom-built speakers, 3 custom subwoofers, two rows of 3 power-reclining leather seats, all pointed at the 120" screen. All of this happened with no unexpected extra expenses, and Randy even threw in a couple of upgrades like building a more robust center channel speaker than he had originally planned, and installing a Quadratic Residue Diffuser panel on the back wall.
If you've ever considered an upgrade to your home entertainment system, I highly recommend Sound Investments. You don't need to be in the market for a dedicated space like I was: Randy can work with whatever your needs and budget happen to be. I couldn't be happier with the work that was done for me.
