The Sound Room Employee Project Updates

The Sound Room Employee Project Updates

Our employees often have amazing stories about projects they’re working on or reasons why their clients chose The Sound Room. Here is a brief snapshot at 3 of our latest projects from our employee’s point of view. Andy Hauck: Clients often tell us they want a new TV installed over their existing fireplace but they do not want to see the wires and do not want to worry about patching holes and repainting walls.  While it is not always possible, we can often retro fit wiring and power where they are needed without creating any additional holes or requiring patching and painting. We recently installed a TV and surround system for a client who owned a 20 year old home in the Chesterfield area.  The client wanted the TV installed over a wood burning fireplace with a full brick chimney and to have all the equipment hidden away in the existing cabinets.  Our installers were able to retro fit all the necessary wiring without cutting extra holes.  The whole project took less than a day to install and program and the client was thrilled with the outcome.  Here are a few pictures of the before, during and after.   Jim Kuhlmeyer: My client was is very particular about how things look and her Living Room cabinet was a spaghetti mess and even though when the door was closed she could not see the mess she wanted it cleaned up. We took everything out and rewired her system and wire tied everything together and it looked like something an artist had been involved with. You can go ahead and call...

The Sound Room Equipment Repair Stories

As many of you may know, The Sound Room recently acquired St. Louis CompuTronics, a professional and consumer audio/video equipment repair company. We wanted to offer our customers an option to repair their products by expanding into the service industry. We’ve already had some amazing repairs for our customers, and we wanted to share a few repair stories. Often times, these pieces of audio or visual equipment hold sentimental value to the customer, and they don’t want to part with those memories. Jeff Jackson, the Chief Electronic Technician, does an excellent job of taking these outdated pieces of equipment, and making them operate like new. Here are a few recent repair items we’ve seen with their stories. In these photos you can see a 45 year old stereo receiver that we are in the process of refurbishing for a client.  We are replacing the lamps on the faceplate, cleaning the internal workings and realigning the tuner.  This stereo receiver is proof that if you spend the extra money to get a really good, high quality receiver, it will truly last you a lifetime. One reason the client chose us for this repair, was out fast turnaround times and competitive repair rates. They will have their beloved stereo receiver returned to them in a matter of days, which is a factor that sets us apart from the competition. Another client came in this week to have us service and refurbish seven McIntosh pieces that were given to him by his uncle. These vintage pieces are from 1965 to 1979. As you can tell, this family has excellent taste in audio...
