before you make new purchases and generally talk about any thing that might be
Having done some truly amazing systems over the years its easy to learn the
sky is the limit. Limited only by your imagination.
So let me tell you a little about lightspeed consulting.
was started in an effort to continue to interact with all of the consumer
electronics I had grown to love and to support the clients who had made these purchases. This happened after the company I had worked
for since early 2000 sadly went bankrupt. I had worked for a $800,000,000.00 company, The Tweeter home entertainment
group for many years.
In the beginning I was employed as a lead installation
technician and that progressed into a management position running a very large
install dept Working out of one of the top ten stores in the entire country. In later years that had progressed into a small region covering 4 stores across two states, North and South Carolina. I had the privilege of working with some phenomenal installers
, sales people and store managers over the years. Some of them have gone on to other things and some of them help
out when needed. Having been in and around the audio video industry since 1992
where a laserdisc player hooked to a big heavy tube TV was considered cutting edge!
still remember my first stereo VHS player, A Toshiba top loader with giant piano
keys. But at the time it didn't seem like it would ever get better than this.
The stereo output hooked into my 2 channel amp hooked to a pair or speakers
that had paper cones and a horn tweeter.
It has been an interesting time seeing
the flat panel TV come into its own. The advent of Hi-definition Bluray DVD movies
and HD television broadcasts. Incredible sound formats, Dolby digital AC3
becoming Dolby digital 5.1 and then 7.1, DTS, Dolby truHD and not forgetting Mr
Lucas and his THX sound format. More recently adding DTS Master audio 7.1 for amazingly clear crisp well defined sound.
Being a passionate movie watcher and collector it has been a wonderful time
over the last 12 years to see all this new technology come to fruition. To be
able to install and play with some incredible equipment producing the best in
picture and sound. To at times be truly surrounded by sound and immersed into
the movie environment.
Lightspeed consulting also surrounds itself with talented business partners so
if I don't know the answer chances are I know some one who does.
thanks for stopping on by.
