Q: How do you get this guy's seal of approval?

A: Add seat shakers to your couch or theater seating for an extra surround sound KICK that puts you into the movie!

Here's how they work...We take a piece called a tactile transducer (looks like a metal apple) and attach it inside or to the framing of your seats. We then hook up a dedicated amplifier to this transducer that gets housed with the rest of your equipment. Now when you turn on a movie and a dinosaur jumps around or you're watching your favorite Top Gun scene, your chair shakes along with the movie. The sensation is REALLY impressive and it will take your suround sound experience to another level. We just installed these for our client Larry and he LOVES them.

We are carrying these from the company Earthquake. Typical seat shaker packages will start at around $999.99 installed and go up from there. Interested in kicking your surround sound experience up a notch? Try adding some Earthquake seat shakers from your favorite San Diego audio/video company, Aire Theater Designs.

Martin Logan Speaker Sale in San Diego!

Wow...all I can say is "wow". This speaker sale from Martin Logan is unprecedented and incredible. We can't believe that these types of sales are being offered and you don't even have to get out of bed at 1:30 AM on Black Friday to take advantage of them. Why Martin Logan? Here's a quote from their website:

"Because the electrostatic diaphragm is weightless, it is capable of responding to each individual sonic event with extraordinary speed - from the most subtle background passages to the most explosive transients. There is no lag time that can distort the music. Instead you hear everything as the performer and composer intended."

In English, this means that you will hear crystal-clear highs and detail in your favorite songs that you never knew existed. They sound GOOD. Here's what they're doing to get Martin Logan into your home.

20 years ago, TV and stereo maintenance was easy. It consisted of buying the equipment, dusting it every so often and about 15 years later you would occasionally whack the TV on the side to make it work. Today's systems are a different animal. If you don't do regular maintenance on your new audio/video system you may end up looking like our friend above. Don't get frustrated...read on!

Do you know how to perform the following on your modern televisions, Blu-Ray players, RF brains and networked equipment?

 

1) Power resets

2) Firmware updates

3) Proper emitter placement

4) Resolution and audio optimization

5) Relocation of gear due to RF interference

6) Cloud storage

 

Most people don't as today's audio/video and home automation has become complicated and specialized. Unfortunately, the above elements along with other items need to be performed regularly to ensure that your stereo, flat screen TV and related systems operate smoothly and reliably. This is where we come in.

At Aire Theater Designs, we recommend an audio/video tune-up once a year. This service will ensure that you and your family enjoy your investment and get all of the performance you paid for. Our clients Karen and Marie that scheduled tune-ups last week can attest to this. Karen writes, "Well I must say the system is working great now! Thank you so much!" Here's how we can help you.

Our in-home tune-ups only cost $99.00 and typically can be scheduled the same week that you call us. Want to feel like Karen instead of our angry friend pictured above? Call us and let us show you how San Diego's leaders in audio, video and home automation can make your life a little easier.

Certain things in life are nice to see. It's nice to see your wife catch a 6 pound, 8 ounce trout. It's also nice to see when certain manufacturers go above and beyond the call of duty to take care of our clients. Here's two examples from this week. 

It was nice to see one of our valued partners, Niles Audio, really raise the bar in customer service for our clients Danny and Lynn. When the speakers that they purchased weren't in stock due to a shortage at the factory, Niles offered their step-up models that cost 50% more AT NO ADDITIONAL COST. You sure don't see this type of behavior from companies anymore. 

It was also refreshing to see what Bose did for our client Liz when her remote failed after 7 years. Bose replaced it literally AT NO COST. Did we mention that the remote went out of warranty 6 years ago? What a fantastic way to treat your clients. 

At Aire Theater Designs, there is a reason that we only sell certain product lines. We know that our audio/video partners treat our clients well and will do things that are outside the norm to address your potential customer service needs. If you choose a good product company (ex: in these cases, Bose and Niles) and then a good company to support any needs that may come up (in this case, us), we're confident that you will be happy with your new investment for years to come. Try Aire Theater Designs today to experience what we can do for you!

Sunfire has come to San Diego!



 

We are typically hesitant to bring on new product lines as we want to make sure that any equipment we offer to our clients sounds great, is reliable and represents great value. Ladies and gentlemen...we have found another partner. We'd like to introduce SUNFIRE to you.

Sunfire is what happens when you mix equal parts of a 190 I.Q., a physicist and a guy who loves music. The end result of this cocktail is Bob Carver, an audio genius that has created amplifiers and speakers that offer world-class performance at a fraction of the price of competitors' offerings (see write-up on Wikipedia for his audio challenge in the 1980s where he created similar sound to amplifiers that were considered the world's best at 1/40th of the price). Bob's creation of the Sunfire company has allowed us to experience these products for ourselves.

Aire Theater Designs wil be carrying Sunfire's subwoofers, speakers and amplifiers. A break-down on some of these products follows:

True Subwoofers

Use these subwoofers where you want the best theater experience possible. This line offers incredible performance that will transform your Living Room into a dedicated home theater. These are one-of-a-kind subwoofers. These encompass the TSEQ12, TSEQ10, TSEQS12, TSEQS10 and TSSJ.

These models are priced from from $1000-$2500. P.S. Check out the TSSJ if you want fantastic bass out of a 9" cube!

http://www.sunfire.com/productdetail.asp?id=8

 

HRS Product Line

Subwoofers: This series focuses on providing an amazing movie experience without the need for giant speakers all over the room. These speakers and subwoofers offer BIG performance in a little package.

These encompass the HRS12, HRS10 and HRS8. These models are priced from $850-1050.

Speakers: These offer features like ring-radiating tweeters, high-back EMF woofers and sealed enclosures. What's all this nonsense mean? It means that these speakers sound amazing and that the only nonsense here is the fact that these high-end designs shouldn't cost so little.

These encompass the HRS-SAT4, HRS-SAT4C, HRS-SAT4BIP. These models are priced from $475-650 each.

http://www.sunfire.com/productdetail.asp?id=13

 

Amplifiers

The difference in performance by adding an amplifier to your system is stellar. Your speakers instantly sound fuller and more dynamic. There is a sonic crispness that makes it sound like you just upgraded your speakers in a BIG way. These Theater Grand amplifiers offer the most power in their class (up to 2800 watts!) and will give you unrivaled sound. Don't invite your friends over unless you want to see them leave your house with sad looks on their faces as they go home to their inferior systems.

These encompass the  TGA-7401 and TGA-7201. These models are priced from $2500-3500.
