    Every aspect of this transaction was easy peasey! From the time I called, to the scheduling and especially the install and setup! He dialed my in system better than my new high end receiver with an internal Dolby Atmos speaker/setup program (sorry, not sure what the setup program is called) could accomplish! Personally I feel that his per hourly rate is worth every penny! I will not hesitate to call him for any of my audio/video needs. Tyler has quite the extensive background in this field and it shows in his expertise!

    Very much appreciated their knowledge and understanding of setting up a wired home network. Quick response time and friendly. Turned out the job I needed done was smaller than expected and there was no upsell for additional services. I would highly recommend them if you want good customer service.

    Customer service very poor
    Do not expect any timely or accurate communication from this company. Their work may be fine, but their customer service and civil communication leaves a great deal to be desired. If they did not want to take my job, they should have just said so instead of stringing me along for several weeks. I am very disappointed.

    We promptly reviewed your project in person at no charge and explained our schedule was booked out for two weeks. You then hired a different not allowing us to do any work for you.

    Tyler and Vince are amazing! They fixed our issues, volunteered to come back with the perfect fixtures instead of just an acceptable fixture. They always showed up on time and respected our house while they were working. Highly recommended.

    Comcast had installed the new X1 box and completely messed up our surround sound. Tyler came in fixed it within a few minutes. I would highly recommend him.

    TV Mounting
    Verified Review
    Tyler and his team installed a Mantle-mount style TV mount that is adjustable to be able to adapt from a high up position to a low comfortable viewing height. His team had to add some additional support within the wall to make the setup strong enough. Everything went well and his team worked diligently.

    Tyler Edmondson, owner of the "Theater Design Company" and his technicians gave my husband and I superb customer service and the best pricing for mounting our TV over our stone fireplace. My biggest obstacle was trying to find a TV mount that would fit in the cutout our home builders left in our stone fireplace for mounting a TV. In frustration, I gave up and started obtaining quotes and recommendations from local companies and I settled with Tyler Edmondson. Tyler was extremely responsive and knew exactly what to order to do the job. My husband and I have never had a TV mounted on the wall and Tyler's technicians who installed our TV knew exactly how much tilt would be required for optimal viewing regardless of whether we were sitting in the living room or if I was in the kitchen. We will definitely use Theater Design Company in the future.

    Super nice guy! He installed a TV mounted on the wall and gave recommendations about our audio/visual equipment. Sounds like he is really knowledgeable about this area of expertise. Will have him back for this and other projects. He is honest too! Stuck to his original estimate and did a clean job.

    Wow! Tyler Edmondson is the person to use with any need related to TV instillation or theater design. On time, professional, ethical, responsive, quality work, could not have been more pleased. In fact he lowered the price of his quote after he completed the work, who does that!? He earned my business for the future because he did such a great job. Guaranteed you can't find someone better or more cost effective. Absolutely superb, give him a try. I can promise you, you will be impressed. I never write reviews, but he really earned this one.

    We loved working with Theater Design Consultants. They were tremendously helpful and quick. We asked them to finish the physical install of the wiring for our two theater systems as well as setting up all of the corresponding components. When we discovered that we needed new cable boxes, they gladly came by a second time and finished the set up. They arrived when promised and were very polite. We would hire them agin in a heart beat!

    Tyler of Theater Design Consultants promptly arranged a mutually suitable time to provide an on site consultation for the work (to mount a flatscreen over a fireplace, plus the wiring involved to run power, audio and HDMI behind the wall). The quote (arrived 24 hours later) provided a couple of mounting options - one of which was perfect. The work was scheduled the following week (at the earliest time that was convenient for me) and executed. We had a small hiccup with the wiring that Tyler was more than pleased to work around and make good. The system is working great - thank you Tyler!

    Working with Tyler made a horrible situation into an easy solution. I work for a company out in Detroit who sells SiriusXM for business subscriptions to people all over the nation. We needed an installer for a client and no one wanted to do this (client was located on an Island and the cheapest we could pay someone to look at it was $300) then I found Tyler. Tyler not one went out there to do the bid for free, he was also fair with his pricing and his work was perfect. I used to be a field technician for home/business automation along with high end home theater equipment. My biggest rules when it comes to this is (1.Everything works great according to the client and 2.The install has to look clean, even if the client will never see it, the wires and everything has to look like it's going on display) I didn't even have to say this to Tyler. I know because this is a guy who takes pride in his work. Does it in a timely manner but doesn't rush. I wish there were more techs like him out there.

    I can't say enough good things about Tyler's work. We are so glad we chose him to work on our house. We hired Tyler to do a small renovation job in our 1940 home. In the process the scope of work expanded, as remodels often do. He ended up rewiring our entire room due to a low-quality previous remodel. Knowing that the wiring is done properly has helped us sleep at night. Ty also provided good advice on socket placement. Since living in the space we have been delighted when plugging in appliances, an outlet is always right where we need it. His knowledge of both current code and 1940's construction was invaluable. He saved us both time and money while providing superior build quality. Tyler always showed up on time and was very respectful of our house and our property. I will hire him again in the future and he is my go-to contractor. I can hardly wait for our next project - a theater room downstairs!

    Tyer is the consumate professional. He assisted us with intricate electrical, security system and state of the art entertainment upgrades. His work was both timely and within budget. His technical knowedge proved invaluable and he provided us with practical and workable suggestions. Tyler is our go to guy for any technical work for our home.

    Tyler did an excellent job on my project. I am sure it was a smaller job for him but he showed up on time for the meeting and worked with my designer on speaker placement and hiding of the TV. As of know he wired in 7 speakers and ran wire to the TV location + condiut. We will have him out to to the final work once we move in. So far so good! Jeff
