The BIG surprise about home theater—
Are the big box stores like Best Buy, Fry’s, Sam's Club and Costco the top options available?
If you are in the market to purchase any kind of home audio/video or consumer electronic device for a home theater system, it does not matter what you buy. Wow, you might want to read that again. It may be surprising, but industry experts know what really matters is where you go to buy your home theater equipment. More surprising, research and development, not advertising, makes a better product, so the products you see on tv are rarely the best on the market. In this increasingly complex world we live in, technologies change rapidly. It is difficult to keep up with all the latest gadgets that come on the market. When you visit your local retail chain store you will find a wide array of products that are produced for the mass market. Remember, just because you have seen the commercials for these mass-marketed products a hundred times on your television, does not mean they are actually good products.
Consider this, if a company is spending hundreds of thousand of dollars on advertising, they have less to spend on product development. In most cases, that means there is a good chance that product will be inferior to a lesser known brand that is committed to product excellence. So how do you find these lesser-known audio visual components and systems that aren’t advertised to the public? For over 12 years, people in the Valley have been going to Jason and HTI.
When you purchase from a retail store:
The sales staff is normally comprised of young people that have no specialized training in the department they are working in.
The staff is generally not passionate about what they are selling. They are merely making a few dollars an hour.
There will typically be no convenient way to get your questions answered once you get the product home.
If there is a problem, you will not be able to actually speak with the person who sold the system to you.
The product will cost less but have fewer options and probably won’t do what you want it to.
And most important, without an in-home consultation to perform a room and lifestyle analysis, the retail chain store sales person will never be able to sell you the right product that meets your specific and unique needs.
Okay, so a big retail chain store isn’t the answer—what is?
The best place is a custom installer of home audio/video products. A custom installer should provide the following services:
Offer you an in-home consultation. Without one there is no way to determine your exact needs.
Offer a range of custom, high quality products that will do everything you need now and provide future expansion capability.
Offer a level of service that far surpasses anything from a retail chain store.
Perform your in-home installation with professionalism and attention to every detail.
Design a system that is exactly what you want and nothing more, is easy to use and makes you feel that you made a great investment.
The company you choose should be licensed, bonded and insured.
And most important, guarantees the system will be easy to use from day one. HTI guarantees your home theater system will be easy to use from day one.
