Like many consumers of electronics, the appeal of a new TV , receiver and bluray etc very quickly outpace the knowledge we have. Setup and operation of these units, multiple cables , connections, remotes etc leave us with an inoperable system , that we seem powerless to get up and running. After having spent 3 to 4 hours trying on my own as well as 2 to 3 hours on the web without success in finding understandable and useable information , I turned to Homestars , where I found David Audio & Video. I called and arranged to have David install my system professionally.
David Chivers not only setup the units , but explained how they worked , and suggested options for future improvement if they should become necessary.
I would recommend David to anyone , especially those who have reached their frustration limit and who want professional , knowledgeable and efficient assistance at a reasonable rate.
Thanks for your help David
David was incredible. Very knowledgeable and worked with us to provide the best solution that fit our needs and budget. He went above and beyond to make sure everything was done correctly and even gave some professional tips about viewing angles and getting the best use of the Monster articulating mount I had purchased. A stand-up guy and worth every penny, we couldn't be more pleased.
David installed my complete home theatre system - Plasma TV, cable-box, AV receiver and 5 speakers.
He was extremely efficient, knowledgeable and quick.
I would strongly recommend David to anyone who wants their home theatre installed perfectly and for a fair price. He is simply very good, and a nice guy.
David was a great partner on our wall-mounted TV installation. We had no knowledge of him before we found him on Homestars. He helped us decide on the best TV and DVD player for our particular needs, and helped us integrate a wifi-connected box to add web content into the mix. His installation was careful and methodical, and with his low-voltage wall wiring solutions, he managed to help us avoid big wall cuts to reinforce our metal studs. No one else could offer this. David really listened to us and our needs, and was unendingly patient and helpful throughout the process. Also, his prices on equipment were excellent -- as good as we could get shopping on our own. He is also just the nicest guy you could meet. We'd ask him to help us again in a heartbeat.
Note: price is the total for all components and installation.
David was exactly the right person to answer my many audio/video-related questions as well as to supply and install a TV on a masonry wall in a condo. He helped me figure out how to set up connections to my TV from the internet as unobtrusively as possible. Moreover, he had the patience to help me think through various technical options (without getting lost in the tech jungle) and the foresight to avoid problems. I recommend David to anyone who appreciates reliability and attention to detail.
We hired David to mount our plasma on an exterior wall, above our fireplace. I knew this was out of my league, because while it would be easy enough to put up the mount, I had no hope of fishing HDMI through the wall with the insulation, and had no clue as to how to run power through the wall.
David came right over, promptly put the power and HDMI through... and then did something I never expected: he turned down mounting the bracket, even though we would have paid him more. He explained to us that there were some issues with our bracket, and that we needed a new one (wider so that we could use more studs). I have great respect for him, as he could have just done the job and let us suffer the consequences of a less than perfect install, but instead did the right thing...
Recommended for any AV stuff you might need.
David worked quickly and efficiently to install a new TV for us. He explained in detail its operation. His rate was reasonable. In the few days following the installation, he answered every question by phone when we had a few minor problems adjusting to the new system. It made life easy for our transition to a new TV.
I had a mish mash of audio visual equipment including a brand new 3D LED TV and a laptop capable of interfacing with my TV. David was able to not only get my system to perform excellently he handled all the small details, recommending effective alterations, picking up necessary connectors, etc., and taking time to show me how to get the most out of my system. His workmanship in running the wires and making the installation visually appealing was also very impressive.
