    Hi I just wanted to say hi to everyone.
    I'm an owner of a custom Audio/Video Shop.
    We're dealers for ADA, M&K, Audioquest, Stewart Filmscreen, Runco, Integra, Vantage, Owens-Corning, Theo Kalomirakis, Acoustic Science Corporation, and the ISF.
    My company doesn't deal with the general public.
    I'm hoping my advice can help many of you improve your theatres. I also hope to pass any news I hear from the many shows I attend.
    Please note I'm not interested in selling any products to you so please don't ask me for pricing on any of the goods I sell.
    Thank you,
    Anthony

    Hello gentlemen,
    I came on here because I often get frustrated when people give out wrong advice.
    Not that there is nothing wrong with someone giving out their opinion but I'm hoping to help you guys out if you have any questions.
    I've done over 200 installations so I think I'm pretty qualified to help out.
    I think sometimes our industry has a bad reputation so anything I can do to help it will help all of us out.
    I look forward to meeting all of you.
    Anthony

    I was wondering if you could give me some advice. I am looking for a receiver or separate combo to run my MartinLogan HT. Any insight?

    Hi Anthony,
    Welcome to the HTF!!!
    I notice that you are from the same place as another HTF'er named Johnny G, who I think is also a local retailer. Are you two in competition with each other? Do you work with each other? Do you even know Johnny G? I have no idea how large a town Mississauga is, but it sounds like it might be a small enough town where everyone knows each other... [​IMG]

    John,
    1.4 million people live within 15 miles of the center of Mississauga. I think the city's population is somewhere in the 620,000 range.

    Hi John,
    I don't know the user you are referring to. If he works in the industry chances are he's probably in retail. I don't know of too many custom shops on the level of ours.
    Mississauga is a big city. It's outside Toronto (about a 20 minute drive away). The population is close to 600,000.

    Thanks Jim, Anthony and JohnnyG! Now I know about Mississauga. Next, maybe I can learn to spell it without simply pasting it from your posts... [​IMG]

    Hi Brian,
    We're in the process of designing our website right now.
    As for photos you'll probably see some of our jobs in some of the major American magazines within the coming months.
