What is the Best Home Audio System Available?

home audio system myrtle beachGrand Strand New Construction or Buying A Home?

The Grand Strand area is seeing a huge influx of new residents.

People are drawn to South Carolina for many reasons, mostly economic reasons.

Taxes are fairly low, the cost of living is lower than in most states and the weather is great. Except for the occasional hurricane, of course!

Are you are looking to move to the Grand Strand, or have you recently relocated to the Myrtle Beach area and need to improve your home?

Did you purchase a newly constructed home, or are you in the market to buy an existing home?

Are You In The Market For A Home Audio System?

Most women buy a home based on the features of the kitchen, bathroom, as well as the location of the home.

Men buy a home based on the opinion of their spouse. ?

A few things men do love and look at in a new purchase is a home audio system, a man cave, and home theatre options!

Who wouldn’t want to watch all the games on a big screen with surround sound?

What Do You Need Your Home Audio System To Do?

Ask and answer the following questions:

  • Do you want complete control with one remote?
  • Do you need sound in all rooms?
  • Do you want to have surround-sound?
  • How about outdoor speakers?
  • Who will use the home audio system the most?
  • Do you own equipment that can be used?
  • Are you loyal to certain brands?

Once you have answered these questions, it’s time to move to the next part.

Where Do You Want Your Audio To Stream?

Wiring the whole house for a home audio system is a large job, made much easier if it’s new construction!

If you want outdoor speakers for your home audio system, you will need to make sure that the brands you pick have speakers and systems that accommodate your outdoor space. Rest assured, most do.

The biggest question is next:

Will You Install Your Home Audio System Yourself?

We understand wanting to save a bit of money.

However, installing a home audio system without the proper knowledge and understanding of how this works can lead to … home disasters.

We recommend you only attempt a DIY installation if you are a seasoned handyman or installation pro.

Who Do Your Trust on The Grand Strand to Install Your Audio System?

Only one name should come to mind when you need a home audio system installation!

Chuck!

If you’ve ever met Chuck Bryant of Strand Security you know he’s got the skills and know-how to install your home audio system – and any other (security) system – in your home!

Give us a call and let us help you rid your home of the sound of silence!

Are You Interested in a Home Cinema?

What You Need To Know Before Adding a Home Cinema To Your Home

Did you know that as many as 1400 people per month are now flocking to the Grand Strand area (in 2019)? We are experiencing growth like few other cities and areas in the USA.

With growth comes growing pains.

Growing pains like these:

  • Houses are popping up like mushrooms but experienced labor is hard to find.
  • Roads are built a neck-breaking speed but cause congestion.
  • Consumers have high demands for homes but finding the perfect home is tough.

You might be looking for a home with a home cinema.

If you can’t find what you are looking for along with all the other new residents to Horry and Georgetown County, maybe you should consider building the perfect home cinema.

What you need to know is that you need to find the most skilled person to design your home cinema, before you hire any contractor to do the work!

Who Will You Invite To Your Home Cinema?

As you think and start working with an expert in your home cinema design, the FIRST thing you will need to decide is who you will be invited to enjoy this home cinema with!

Before settling on a home cinema design you will need to know

  • maximum number of people you will want to watch movies with
  • the ages of the people you will want to watch movies with
  • other activities/functionalities that the room will be used for

Hold off on the invites until your home cinema is done..;)

Myrtle Beach Area Home Cinema Options

You know you have home cinema design and installation choices if you live on the Grand Strand.

We encourage you to do a few things before settling on whom to hire to install your home cinema.

  • check out websites of potential designers/installers
  • call around and talk to potential home cinema designers and installers to gage responsiveness
  • read online reviews (Google, Facebook)
  • ask your friends and neighbors for referrals
  • ask your Facebook friends for recommendations

In other words, do your due diligence so you don’t get taken advantage of.

You will want to work with a professional company who is insured, licensed and bonded, has years of experience, and puts its customers first.

Grand Strand Home Cinema Installers

No matter who you pick to be your home cinema designer and installer; be sure to know s/he designs something you love!

Communication is important for all aspects of this process.

If you’d like to talk with Chuck, please give him a call. We would love to be considered for your next home cinema project!
