Looks really good, flows nicely.

My turn to nitpick at nothing. On the theater page, whatís up with the Snap AV speakers in the one picture? Or the rack with the Addagio in it?

Brendon is a Triad/Kef/C4 guy these days.
Hey, careful man, there's a beverage here!

All weekend Ive had to stop myself from just ripping this website apart and critiquing everything I could come up with just to screw with Brendon. If anyone else had built it for him, Id already have convinced him it was the worst site since Hamster Dance. LOL

But because you did it, I couldnt bring myself to do it. Nice work. We are going through having our site rebuilt. The guy doing ours is good, but doesnt completely understand our industry, and the difference shows.

Oh, also in the mount TVs, there is Strong in wall mount box with Wattbox. I wondered has Brendon even ordered a Snap product in the last two years?

Of course, trying to keep all photos current with Brendon's products du jour is like trying to predict what flower a humming bird is going to land on next. ;)

Looking good. Agree on having more current pictures and references to the key manufacturers used. I mean those C4 panels in some of those pics havenít been current since the tearing down of the Berlin Wall.

I have to have this discussion with nearly everybody I do a site for.....the only people who know what speaker brand, rack or versabox, etc... is us....visitors don't know, and they don't really care.... They're not studying the site like you guys are, the images are there to let customers understand exactly what it is that you do...quickly.

The problem with companies like Triad, although I'm sure they're great speakers because the vast majority of you guys are using them since C4 bought them...but the images available for Triad speakers are so bad that they're unusable.... I'm sure C4 will fix this in the future, but right now, they're horrible.

Another company that makes a great product that has limited quality "lifestyle" images available is Middle Atlantic.  Trying to find good rack pics (don't go there), is nearly impossible.  If you want tech drawings and specs, they're great..decent quality lifestyle images?  not so much.

WTF! Fins.....YOU'RE DEAD TO ME!

Really?  I didn't know that...I was never a C4 guy.  I'll change that immediately....I can't believe you're the first one to say anything about it..


FIXED NOW!  Thanks.

I love when you guys point out the typos....but don't care to tell me where...it's always so helpful.  :)

These are the things that jumped out at me  :)



"Maybe you don't have room in your home for a mancave."

I believe Man Cave is two words, but I could be wrong.



" The majority of home theaters have a minimum of 5 speakers and 1 subwoofer. Hence, the 5.1 monicker."

it is spelled "moniker"  (usually)



"Do you have a large DVD movie collection? Do you want to stream Netlix"

typo on Netflix



"
What if you could hide your cable box, apple TV an other devices directly behind the television?"

and other devices




And if I want to go full Ernie on you:

"
Don't worry, it's easier than ever to start designing your smart home. We're here to help."

Should use a semi-colon after worry, not a comma.

You should update the response to "throw that old crap in the garbage, its 2018!".
