As a technological know-nothing, I clearly needed professional help setting up a new TV and sound system to replace my 13-year-old tube TV. Someone who'd assess my situation, suggest new components, then - most important - chase around town to get those components and install them attractively in a specific space. I haven't the time, patience or the expertise to do all that myself. Reading HomeStars reviews, David seemed like my kind of pro. He's a one-man operation. He came, he measured, he suggested components, he quoted price and - when I agreed - he went out and did it, professionally, on time, and agreeably - always keeping me informed on what he was doing and why. All the components controlled by one remote, on which he gave me a long, hands-on lesson on how to operate. Actually, as I'm kinda slow when it comes to technology, he gave me the lesson three (3) times. I think I've got the hang of it now - it's not all that difficult. Was it all worth the money? I don't know - I didn't comparison shop. David seemed like the right choice to do what I wanted and I was prepared to pay for his expertise. Altogether, a satisfying experience.
Thanks so much for the detailed review!
David was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and professional throughout the entire process - from our initial conversations on the phone, right through to his time at our condo completing the install. My wife and I were thrilled with the finished product and we would highly recommend him to anyone who asks.
Thank you Taylor, I appreciate you taking the time to write a review for me!
David came by and thoughtfully addressed the problem, systematically tested all our components. Offered a repair vs replacement without pushing and did a great job with our system. Everything works now and finally able to watch tv on the treadmill again!

We recently went through extensive renovations in our home. We had all of the equipment needed for our TV & Sonos audio systems but had no idea how to reconnect everything after the renovations. I was worried that my project would be too small to interest any technician. David came to our home & set up our systems to work even better than before. In addition to this, all of the wiring was beautifully organized & well labelled. He put much thought & care into the project and was a pleasure to work with through the process. We highly recommend David for any TV & Audio work needed in your home.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review for me....greatly appreciated!
I asked David to mount a couple TVs for us in our new home. David was very professional and got back to us promptly every time, and took the time to understand our needs before starting the job. You can tell David takes every project seriously, big or small, and we would trust him to help us with any A/V project for our home. We're very glad we called David.
Thank you Trevor for your review.
Appreciate you taking the time to write one.
I am an audiophile and have some good quality 5.1 equipment - Pioneer Elite, ATC Speakers, expensive cables and interconnects. I pride myself in doing my own set-ups. Since moving to my new place, with a new set-up/configuration I was unable to get everything connected properly - Blu Ray Image but no 5.1 sound, or sound and no image etc..
David came in and meticulously identified all cables, interconnects and equipment. He set everything up, including a complicated speaker cable set-up with tight spade/banana plugs touching. he isolated the speaker cable connections with electrical tape to stop the shorting from the cables touching at the slightest movement of the amp. He identified everything, did the complete on-screen set-up, did the room acoustic tuning via the microphone to set up the speaker sound/volume properly for 5.1.
All in one afternoon. he did not rush and did not leave until everything was properly done. Just as important he set-up everything to be easily accessible in the future, for changes and upgrades. After months of frustration I am now enjoying my CD/DVD-Audio? Blu-Ray collection of 1200 titles. THANK YOU DAVE - A TRUE PROFESSIONAL
Thank you Perry for the great detailed review.....really appreciate it!
A true professional. David was an absolute pleasure to have around and get the work done right the first time. He was thorough and cleaned up all the mess. He was very knowledgeable and trustworthy. If you need any one to do this type of work please stop messing around with the rest; I know I will be rehiring him for all my AV needs.
Thank you HR for taking the time to write a review for me......I really appreciate it!
Makes me feel great that you were pleased with everything.
David is a real pro. He asked questions so he had a good idea what I was looking for and what additional equipment I needed. He came on time and with all the parts required to do the install.
Now I have the best sound and picture. David was worth every penny. I would highly recommend him anytime.
Thanks Kathy for the great feedback......I really appreciate you taking the time to write a review for me!
