Twisted did an amazing job setting up my surround sound and switching all the wires for our TV/speakers from one side of the fireplace to the other, and also putting in an extra outlet behind the bedroom TV to hide those wires. I had a lot of questions for Ron, especially about how I could bring the cost down, and he was very helpful and patient with every question I had. We reached a good solution I was comfortable with, and he did a great job with the work. Couldn't recommend him more. Hire him!
I am very handy (thanks to my dad), but leave the electrical work to the professionals. Norh was incredibly nice and maintained excellent communication about availability, scheduling, and pricing. He also looked at another project idea of mine and gave very sound advice including different options that may cost me a bit less. He also answered my electric questions clearly without talking over my head. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat.
Can't say enough good things about HasProz and my tech Golden. I got at least 5 estimates for my home theatre install (projector, electric screen, surround sound) and by far HasProz was the most reasonable and easy to work with to get within my budget. From Golden's initial free consult/walk through which he took over 30min to take measurements and plan the layout (which others would just come for 5 minutes and say they could do it without measuring or taking notes....this was not an easy install by any account....to doing the install and taking his time to do it right. Always on time and called to say he's on the way etc, it's all the little things that make these the guys to go to for your home AV installations. The end result was spectacular and it even got my wife's approval! :) referring him to family and will use Golden again for any AV projects around the house.
Harrison is the bomb. On time, helpful, neat, and adept at problem solving. Did I mention that he’s a perfectionist? Also, he answers your most idiotic technophobe questions with aplomb. CJ his helper is great, too. I now have 3 working TVs surround sound Netflix and amazon prime. What more could a girl want?
Hired Christian to install a wireless speaker system for my great room and kitchen. After much deliberation on my part and information on his part we settled on three Sonos play 1 speakers and a sub. He was able to do everything next day after I made my decision and he absolutely killed it. The system sounds amazing configured per his recommendations and the install is as slick as you could ask for. He can do electrical which is awesome and everything else was clean and polished looking. In less than two weeks I have had him mount a 65in tv and he did a fantastic job with that and now install and configure my Sonos system. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. If you want an expert install at a very responsible and honest price you're wasting your time looking elsewhere. Save yourself the trouble and hire him. I assure you, you won't be disappointed. I have every intention of having install my surround sound downstairs and any other AV needs I have I will take to him.
I had gotten the quote from a lot of professionals, who were nice to talk to and promptly provided me with their quotes, and I was down to finalizing one out of two guys - Certified AVE and Pro Installations, I decided to go with pro installations, because he offered me huge discount, worked around my schedule, even during after business hours and was very prompt to reply. the two tv's that he installed, along with surround sound speakers and a floating shelf for second speaker system look really nice and he even gave away the moldings for free. and after the job, I found out that two guys are brothers.
LOOK NO FURTHER!!! If you want quality work that is 2nd to none, then Eagle One Protection Systems should be your number one choice! I cannot express how professional and dedicated this team is! The installation was a snap for this team duo, one 60" and two 32" TV's were installed. Installation VERY CLEAN, no wires, even the outlets were concealed. I am EXTREMELY PLEASED and was PLEASANTLY surprised with the outcome, not to mention the distance this team traveled to take care of my needs. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Eagle One Protection Systems!!! Check this team out before going ANYWHERE else and you will thank yourself for doing so! THANK YOU FOR A JOB WELL DONE. IT DOESNT GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS FOLKS! RP~...A customer for life!
Premiere Installation did an excellent job. They came on time and took the time to figure out some tricky issues. Everything is working as it should and our sound system sounds better than ever. Plus, the price seemed very reasonable. We're very satisfied.
We had a surround sound system that needed to get installed. I contacted Austin about it and he was very helpful. He installed the speakers and did a very nice and clean job. He explained things when I had any questions. He's extremely smart and I would definitely contact him again and recommend him to anyone I know.
Ed handled a surround sound installation in my family room. The builder had the wires somewhere in the walls and ceiling, and Ed found every one with his toner on the first try, making exactly and only the correct holes first time; No drywall repair at all, and very limited mess to clean up afterward. The TV over the fireplace looks awesome, the receiver and Blue Ray player is in another room out of sight, and the speaker and sub blend into the room like they aren't even there. The sound is fantastic. This job was completed in about 10 hours total. I highly recommend Ed's services; Everything went as planned, on budget, and works perfectly.
I recently had a smart TV/video game/surround sound system set up and installed by Williams home theater and everything was great. Steven (who is the owner) not only helped me decide on a placement that I'd personally like now and I to the future but also answered all of my questions and helped me navigate my new smart TV and remote. I'm pretty tech savvy myself, I don't normally need much guidance but even I learned a few tricks. I was a bit nervous choosing an installation company because it was my first time; maybe I got lucky, but I couldn't be happier 2 months later. Highly recommend!
My short review: 5 Stars isn't enough. What a great person and savy Mac pro that merged my photos, removed the old iPhoto so I didn't have multiples eating up my "Other" memory. Updated my system and so much more. Now I don't need a new computer! Mine is running top-notch and Dr Sound will be my go-to for any glitchy computer problems I have in the future. Thanks a Million! Now for my extended review: I must rave about the Mac professional that came to my house yesterday! My Mac had almost no memory and I had already taken it into a shop for repair. Alll they could do is run antivirus. They had no advice on how to free up "Other" the elusive memory that was killing my MacBook Air. Anyhow, I searched online and well it took three times of the website Thumbtack prompting me to ask for a quote. I was leery to say the least. What was Thumbtack? Could I trust them? Guess three times is the charm, because I caved and submitted a request for a Mac Pro to help me out. Did I win in spades! I thought I needed a new hard drive; nope just a genius that new how to merge the old iPhoto and the new Mac Photo and send everything to the cloud. Got all our Mac devices humming like virgin computers just out of the box! Also he dusted off my two-year-old Mac Airport that the Best Buy tech guys said must not be able to work with the modem that has a house phone number attached to it. Said it was confusing the wireless. Eli didn't buy that advice and said, "No way, Macs work with everything." A little thing called a "Bridge" command and Eli had it downloading my hard drive in minutes. Along with going ahead and updating my computer to the new operating system. Setting up Siri which I have no clue how to use, but for Eli's sake I'm going to be "Siriing" everything once Jason shows me how to talk to her. He showed me ways to conserve battery life on my phone like how to shut off those auto run video feeds on FB and flip over to HD on photo download to FB. He also optimized my newsfeed on my phone to the things I want to see. (Granted, I forgot where it is, but I'll find it.) He showed me my flashlight which I didn't know I had. I thought I had to download an App for that and never got around to it. He closed a years worth of open apps and Safari tabs that I didn't know needed closing. Can I say WOW like a million times. He's now on speed dial on my favorite list. He also does wall mount TV service and is the coolest guy. I'm sure you need something done in your house electronically and he just might be the guy to call. Overall, you can trust Dr. Sound to come to your home. Good luck with your project.
Ivaylo was very professional and worked hard to create a solution that fit our budget. Specifically we moved into a new home that had been previously wired for cable and sound in a customary way that was highly outdated and didn't function with modern equipment (e.g. comcast xfinity). Ivaylo presented us with different options to bring the house up-to-date, and disclosed the pricing for each. After discussing the options with him and choosing one, he worked hard to execute and deliver exactly what we asked for. I highly recommend him for any job (whether simple or complicated) that involves home technology (a/v, cable, home theater systems, etc.)
Installer was on time and did quality work. Highly recommend these guys.
Scott did an excellent job providing and installing a commercial sound system at our restaurant. He even found ways to REDUCE his original estimate which was already very reasonable. Punctual and professional too!
I received a new 55 inch television for Christmas from my wife and needed help to get the TV installed. I reseached several businesses to find someone with knowledge of TV installation, surround sound experience and a reasonable price. After calling several companies for a quote, a few of them did not even return my call. When I called Tony Delgado from Music Evolution he not only was very professional but he also gave me a fair price. I choose Music Evolution do to there experience and Tony's professionalism. He arrived at my residence on time and completed the job as requested. He even took time out to answer and explain any questions that my wife and I had pertaining to our installation. He insured us that if we had any issues or additional questions to contact him at once. I would highly recommend Music Evolution and Tony Delgado to all of my friends and family. Great job!!!
