I've been a huge movie, music, and tech buff for as long as I can remember. I grew up in the 70s and 80s watching old war movies on TBS, Masterpiece Theater and other odd things on PBS, and rifling through my parents' collection of albums from the 60s and 70s. I've been a long time gamer since the original Pong console, through the Atari years, into the NES age, and now to online PC gaming with such titles as the Battlefield series, StarCraft, and Company of Heroes.
I purchased my first car stereo from Crutchfield while in high school during the late 80s and installed into my mom's Dodge Mirada. Since that time, I've outfitted 3 Jeeps, a Chevy S-10, a 1972 VW Beetle, and a Nissan Pickup. When I first joined the Crutchfield team in 1999, I was like a kid in a candy store. I've been exposed to all manner of car audio and home theater equipment. I get to play with the toys that everyone wants. I still have my first Acoustic Research S-4 tower speakers, and they are going strong in my theater setup. I've been here through the move from CD to MP3 to DVD to smart phone integration, along with the introduction of home surround sound, the move to HDTV, home theater convergence, and more. It is simply amazing how both home and car A/V have grown and become so much more complex, yet easier than ever to use in the last decade. It is simply amazing and mindboggling the things we can do these days.
I left Crutchfield for awhile in 2008, but ultimately returned to my first love - electronics. I've kept up with the ever-changing and evolving world of both car and home A/V, and I am prepared to help you choose the gear that will best solve your problems and help you enjoy your life. That is ultimately what we do here - We provide solutions to your entertainment dilemmas so that you can live a more enjoyable life.
If you have questions, concerns, or simply just can't decide, give me a ring and I will be more than happy to help you figure out what you need.
Thanks for choosing Crutchfield, and I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
Tyler is a patient and completely professional customer advocate. Our most recent purchase included a Television and power protection for the same. After discussing what we were looking for in our equipment, the end result was no less than perfect! We've been shopping with Crutchfield for over ten years and always receive excellent advice without the "hard sell" tactics used by others. There is no replacement for knowledge and education.
