He is passionate about recreating both music and movie experiences for his valued clients, allowing them to escape into worlds of mystery, romance and intrigue without ever leaving their comfortable homes. He believes the ultimate audio/video experience is to watch a live sports, dramatic or music performance in a large screen venue that’s augmented with an epic sound system, all the while forgetting that one is actually sitting in the privacy of their own media room.
Having personally owned some of the most exclusive brands in the industry, Bob knows exactly how to achieve the best balance of performance versus dollars invested, thus creating the ultimate value. By precisely blending the right speakers, with the correct amplification, cables, processors, sources, projectors, and screens, one can achieve a system where the result is greater than the sum of the parts.
If you were to build your dream home with careful planning, architectural design, project management, high quality building materials, dedicated subcontractors, etc. you could obtain a result which can either frustrate and disappoint, or ultimately be a magnificent residence. So too with an audio/video system; whether it’s a high-end music system, a dedicated theater, or whole-house audio, it takes more than just purchasing expensive gear – far more! The system must be a fusion of products which collectively suspend belief and give the listener that sense of being there “in the moment”. This is both a science and an art and something that Bob accomplishes with finesse and focus – and exactly where his experience is most valuable to the client. His years of expertise, training, knowledge and passion, come together to give the client the absolute best system for their budget, regardless of the money spent.
“Expect Excellence” is not just a phrase, but a brand promise with Bob and all the associates at Audio Video Excellence. Giving clients a far better experience than the competition and allowing them to enjoy great music and video within their lifestyle, will always be our mantra.
