Watt Box Power Protection and Conditioning

Watt Box

With the arrival of the winter season in Washington we are once again able to hit the slopes, build a cozy fire, or just enjoy the beautiful view of the majestic snow covered mountains. However, unfortunate side effects are the winter storms that can cause havoc throughout the area with heavy rains, high winds, and sometimes even electrical storms.  These storms routinely cause massive power outages and unwanted electrical disturbances, like surges. Fortunately there are products to help protect your valuable equipment.

One of the leading lines of surge protection and power conditioning is a product called Watt Box. Watt Box comes in several configurations to fit your needs. Whether you need just a 2-outlet conditioner, or a 12-outlet conditioner with IP control and USB charging dock, Watt Box has you covered with everything in between. With top of the industry surge protection, power conditioning to filter out those unwanted electrical noises, and 18-gauge steel construction, Watt Box will negate any fear of unprotected equipment, and allow you to enjoy the beautiful sounds of the season through your beloved system. So stop by or give us a call to show you how Watt Box can be integrated into your system.

Home in the Desert

Home In The Desert

I thought I would share some photos of project we just finished this week in Santa Fe, New Mexico. One of our best clients purchased a home there and asked us to outfit it with an incredible audio-video system. This is the fourth home we have done so far for him and his wife. As you can tell they are truly “Nuts About Hi-Fi”.

Desert Home - Living Room

They flew us out the first time several months ago to scope out the job. I noticed when arriving how incredibly quiet it is there. I knew immediately that this was going to be one of the best systems we have installed to date. After meeting with their contractors and designers we all put our heads together and came up with a plan to create a home for entertaining. Matt, Adam and Marie flew out several times during the remodel process to run cabling and install the products.

Desert Home - Media Room

Matt and I flew down this last week to put the final touches on the system and hear the finished product. I wish all my friends could hear this system. Quite the goose-bump machine to say the least. Definitely one of the top systems I have ever heard. Thank you two for everything. It it a blessing to have customers with your level of enthusiasm for what we do.

Quality Wireless Audio Has Finally Arrived

HEOS SystemFor the last couple of years we have been on the hunt for a quality wireless speaker system.  We auditioned several different products, only to find software glitches and/or poor sound quality.  We were about to give up on this category all together.

Then our good friend, Walter Bell, who represents Denon, gave us a call.  He said he had something we needed to buy.  A couple of days later Walter showed up armed with several of these new HEOS products and started randomly placing them throughout the store.  Then he opened his iPad, smiled and said “What are you guys in the mood to hear?” A couple of seconds later the Rolling Stones were not getting any satisfaction anywhere in our showroom. I followed him around while he adjusted the individual volume and equalization for each room and pretty soon we had a very nice, seamless balance of sound that is easy on the ears.

When he told me the pricing, I almost couldn’t believe it. You can get started with this system for just two hundred dollars and add music throughout your home or business to your heart’s content. They also offer a very nifty little gadget called a HEOS Link that allows you incorporate your existing audio system. All you need is some sort of smart device, a wireless network and you are golden. Stop in, check these out and get some satisfaction.
