Your home should be your sanctuary – a retreat that revitalizes, relaxes, and restores your senses. At Audio Video Excellence, we help homeowners create these spaces by integrating home automation with the highest-caliber audio-video equipment. Just a few of the high-performance companies we partner with include Bowers & Wilkins, Sonus faber, Anthem, and Rega.
We’re also your local McIntosh dealer serving Paradise Valley, AZ, and the surrounding areas. Let’s explore how this brand helps us create homes that revitalize audio experiences.
What's the first thing you do when returning home after a long day? Many head to their audio system and crank up the tunes, whether a relaxing aria, the latest country, or their favorite streaming playlist. Then, they might head outdoors to heat the spa before changing from their work clothes into after-hours comfort.
But what if your home paved the way to relaxation before you arrived? What if you opened the door to high-fidelity music drifting through your home and yard, coming from nearly invisible in-wall and in-ceiling speakers that produced an enveloping sound field? What if your spa was pre-heated and your indoor and outdoor lights reflected the golden hue of candlelight? What if?
Since 1949, McIntosh has been synonymous with high-performance home-audio systems. From two-channel stereo systems to multi-channel home theaters with surround sound, they define the ultimate in home audio entertainment.
McIntosh amplifiers powered Woodstock in the 1960s and played a part in Pet Sounds, the prolific album by the Beach Boys. In the 1970s, they released their first loudspeakers. That same decade, the Grateful Dead turned to McIntosh to create the “Wall of Sound” that consisted of 48 McIntosh amplifiers and changed the sound of live music forever.
In April 2022, their MX100 A/V Processor received Connects with Control4 Certification. This signifies that the equipment is automatically discoverable by the Control4 platform and seamlessly integrates with the smart home system. The MX100 offers McIntosh's unparalleled performance with an 11.2 channel unit designed for modern home theaters, allowing homeowners to enjoy their favorite 4K and HD programming. It also includes the leading home theater technologies like Dolby Atmos surround sound and DTS:X.
The accolades are truly never-ending. To say we're proud to include this brand in our high-performance audio selection is an understatement. As a McIntosh dealer, we understand their unique offerings suitable for every type of setup, whether a home theater, media room, whole-home distributed audio system, or outdoor entertainment. The result is music and soundtracks as the artist and director intended—pure audio reproduction at its finest.
As home automation and high-fidelity audio experts, we know that words aren’t suitable to convey the luxurious lifestyle that high-performance audio and video provide in your smart home. So that our clients can experience this remarkable technology firsthand, we’ve developed a 4,000-square-foot Control4 certified showroom.
In addition to home automation, you can experience four full home theaters, a media center, high-end stereos, turntables, and speakers. To learn more about home automation and high-performance AV brands or to schedule a complimentary consultation, contact Audio Video Excellence today.
