I began my career with Crutchfield in 1998, however, my interest for electronics goes back as far as I can remember. As a child, I have very early memories of playing Pong on a small black and white TV and listening to records on my parent's hi-fi stereo system. I enjoyed listening to music so much that I was given a recycled record player and several older records, which allowed me to discover more types of music. I even remember listening to the much anticipated Bruce Springsteen box set with my parents the day it was released.
Fast forward a few years and I had my own stereo system including a CD player with 3-way floor standing speakers in my bedroom. From there, I moved onto car audio, installing my first set of speakers at the age of 14. Shortly after I was old enough to drive, I had an entire aftermarket car audio system that I helped install. My goal was simple, having the loudest and best sounding system at school. Mission accomplished!
During my time here, I have been able to stay up to date with all the new technologies and lucky enough to own most of them at home. My current home theater system consists of Polk in-wall/in-ceiling speakers teamed with a wall mounted 55" Sony LED-LCD TV, Denon receiver and dimmable lighting. My next project will most likely involve adding Sonos Zone Players controlled via devices.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time my wife and son, traveling, fishing, home improvement projects and cheering for the Tar Heels!
Jackie has been extremely great to work with as I continue to build my home theater. He has shown extensive knowledge for every question I have asked and is very patient with all of my inquiries. I would highly recommend Jackie to anyone.
Thanks for your help on yesterday. I am awaiting the arrival of my new cd player. I am sure that it will be just what I'm looking for at this particular time. I appreciated the time you took to answer my numerous questions. I will attempt to contact you for future purchases. Bert Carter
