I was called out to repair a surround sound and whole house system in an estate at Lakewood Shores.
The customer, and I went to BB, and they purchased a top end Yamaha Receiver.
I setup the new surround sound system in 7.2 mode.
The customer quoted to me, "In over 12 years this system never sounded like this".
"Wow, you really know what you are doing".
I also setup zone 2 as a whole house background music.
The customer was so glad they found me. I have 40 years experience, been there, done that, so many times.
The original installation was setup in an old analog RCA cables it ran only in right / left stereo mode.
Warning; I have found over 12 stereo system that were installed by the box store,
there installers would setup all stereos systems in right / left stereo mode only.
I asked a box store employee, why do you do that, he said they are on time restraints.
When you want the job done right, call me.
If you have a Surround Sound System in your home, have me out to fine tune it!
**** TV MOUNTING & TV INSTALL & PROGRAMMING ****
We have over 40 years of experience.
We did an estate in Washoe Lake Area.
The owner described the fireplace, ....I said ...."Oh, we will build a custom plywood base for it"
Look what I did...
Been There, Done That............. I am the EXPERT HERE.
The home owner quoted to me... It is hard to find someone who knows what he is doing now-a-days !!!
I install a 55" TV over a Fireplace in South Reno, off of Foothill. I hid all the wiring. Installed AC and TV Service.
Installation in one hour on average.
I picked up a job in the Galena area again. I installed 2 - 70" - 4 K TV's.
I asked the customer if they would like a Home Theater System installed.
We both went on line together and ordered the parts. The installation was complete a few days later.
I recommended a Yamaha Receiver.
Boy does it sound GOOD!
I was called out to a LARGE Custom Home up Mt. Rose Hwy and Joy Lake Rd. The home owner had an existing 6 zone Russound whole house system left behind by the previous home owner.
The only problem. The main controller was missing.
In a previous discussion, I told the home owner to go on line and purchase a 2 zone Yamaha Receiver.
The home owner went and purchased a Denon AVR-270.
Well, I knew from experience this was a mistake.
I connected the main home theater surround sound in the family room, it worked fine.
The whole house station's were connected to zone 2.
The Denon's remote control would NOT function properly.
I could not control the volume on zone 2, even when the remote had a separate volume control.
I was spot on, never purchase a Denon Receiver.
Recently, I went up to Truckee. I was called out by a home owner in Fairway Dr. area of Truckee. A cable company installation technician accidentally changed important settings in the Home Theater System.
Good thing they called me. I set a chair up in front of the Yamaha RX-V663 Surround Sound Receiver and proceeded to re-connect the HDMI cables and other cables into there proper place.
I went into the setup program and fixed all issues the customer was having.
The cable company's installation technician was off the hook.
I have worked on 100's of Yamaha Receivers.
I don't need a manual to program them. One thing I noticed the whole system was setup in Analog mode.
I explained to the customer, if I set your system up in Digital mode it will sound a 100 times better.
Aaah future work.. I also explain to him, how I could save him space in his entertainment drawer's back.
I explained how I could teach him to load all his movies onto a Media Server \ HTPC.
I went down to Minden and setup a customer's home Surround Sound System.
The customer's Sub-Woofer was not working. I opened it up and the electrical lug connector came off the post,
so I brought out my portable soldering iron and soldered it back on permanently.
It won't come off anymore!!!
Who carries a portable soldering iron in their tool box?..........I DO !!!
