The custom install channel is right in the middle of buying group season. ProSource took place at the beginning of March, HTSA will be held in Nashville in mid April, and I just returned from the well-attended Spring Soiree in Nashville, hosted by Azione Unlimited, a buying group that seems to be hitting its stride.

There was a great moment during my behind-the-scenes tour of Crestron’s Rockleigh, NJ, headquarters back in 2009, when company founder (and president and CEO at the time) George Feldstein joined our small tour group in the company’s cavernous R&D facility to demonstrate his latest...
I was surprised (and pleased) to read a counter-argument to the long-held contention that home theaters do not increase the re-sale value of a home, in the New York Times' article "Would a Home Theatre Increase the Value of My Home?"
The Nortek subsidiary announced on Friday that its president Bill Pollock would be retiring from the company at year’s end to clear the way for his successor, Joe Roberts. When I spoke with Roberts to learn more about this news, he acknowledged that Core Brands ...
Last week at CEDIA EXPO, positive energy was clearly in abundance for the first time in many years as integrators road the wave of a rebounding housing market, manufacturers showed more product innovation after banks freed up more development dollars, and Denver served its final year as our favorite EXPO host city. The only “good-news, bad-news” story that I observed during the show in...
