We are a Cedar Rapids based company. We have no showroom because we are intentionally keeping our operating expenses low so we can stay around to provide you with great products and service.
This is our fourth year in business, and while the company may be relatively new, the guys who will be doing your work are not. They've been around the block a few times. They're experienced. Each one of them brings a range of expertise that will be put to work on your specific project, whether its simply hooking up a set of speakers, calibrating a flat panel TV, or installing a home theater.
