Dallas Home Theater Installers Reviews
the appropriate equipment, and were extremely professional. They
explained the necessary elements and code compliance issues with
electrical wiring in wall. They were extremely clean and took care to
clean up all elements upon finishing. Once finished, they took the time
to walk my house and answer questions regarding future audio visual
elements which I wanted in my home. I would highly recommend them to
He was gone for a little over an hour. When he returned he advised me that the 16/4 wire was out of stock at his supplier. I agreed to let him use the 16/2 wire and I would change it out myself later rather than have him reschedule. He patiently told me how to do it. We were in business. After he got everything hooked up he turned on the system. The volume control didn't work. Additionally, the FM function was not operational. He rechecked all his connections and they were OK. The problem was with my admittedly ancient
My Big Deal was for 2 hours but he put in 4 hours. Under the terms of the Big Deal, additional hours would cost me over $100/hour. I braced myself expecting him to say I owed more money. It didn't happen. He cleaned up and said good-bye.
I hesitated to put in writing how the technician went above and beyond without it costing me more than the Big Deal price. If you are reading this, and contract with them, I don't think you should necessarily expect to get more than you bargained for money-wise. However, I am confident you will get absolutely first rate service at an excellent price. I recommend
Starlight initially came in on the high side, but we were impressed with their experience and quality of equipment they could offer (many vendors bid Snap AV, which is an installer OEM with cheap quality and high list prices so we eliminated them). We went back and forth and reached a price we could both live with and decided to proceed with them.
They proposed the following:
-Sony Control 4 Receiver 7.2
-7 Klipsch 3800R Speakers & 1 Klipsch Subwoofer (they painted the speaker covers to match the room)
-They used my
-Dragonfly 106" screen
-3d Sony Blu-
-Integrated my Xbox
-Netgear Wireless Access Point
-SR-250 Remote to control the system (We wanted something smaller)
Marrantz Receiver 7.2
-6 Sets of Speakers (R350, 250 & 150) in the different rooms
-Sonos Player (love this!)
-Rack System in our Audio Closet
-They also mounted 5 TVs (all 60"+) on all of our walls and worked with ATT to get UVerse working properly (they put in surge protection outlets on all of them)
Wirepath Infrared Cameras & 2 TB Recorder
It takes about a week to order the equipment in so you need to plan that when you are in this process and expect that you will pay anywhere from 75%-90% of the cost of the equipment when you sign the contract. They ordered the equipment on a Thursday and came to start the job the following Wednesday. Their guys (
They came back the following Monday to do the whole house installation (they had to cut 6 sets of speakers into the various rooms). This can take a while as the installer had to
They came back the next day and did the Camera System, which we set up so we could watch on our Ipads/iPhones and would recommend that as well. The multiple cameras definitely give good piece of mind. Get the Infrared as it works well. You also want at least a TB HD to record the camera feeds (especially if you have 4 or more camera).
In Summary, I would share that like all projects of this scale there are always going to be small hiccups along them way, but what is most important for me is how they are handled.
The most telling thing to share is that we are about to put in a pool and will definitely use
