Encore Custom AV Opens New Home Automation Showroom

Northern Virginia Integrator Provides a Unique Experience in New Space

Sterling, VA January 29, 2015


Encore Custom AV, winner of CEA's 2015 Integrator of the Year Award and Best Home Theater, has opened a brand new, state-of-the-art showroom at their headquarters in Sterling, Virginia.

The 4,500 sq. ft. space has a design center and a high-end, professional home cinema that includes a Dolby Atmos system, media room, and conference room. The space also has an engineering department for testing completed rack builds before they are installed in clients' homes for quality control.

"The purpose of this showroom is to stage events and have architects, builders, and interior designers bring clients so that they can touch, feel, and listen to what we have to offer," Ian Williams, president of Encore Custom AV, said. "It's a great space for people to learn what Encore is all about, and the level of quality performance we can achieve."

There are many materials in the design center for custom home theaters, including carpet samples, granite, molding, and specialty products commonly not found, which makes this space truly unique.

From distributed video and music systems to lighting control, the entire showroom has been built by Williams' team of professionals. Encore Custom AV is currently featuring products by Savant Systems in their media room, and CINEAK chairs, Pro Audio Technology, Crestron lighting, Digital Projection, and a Crestron control system throughout the rest of the showroom.

Williams invites everyone interested in home automation and custom home theaters to come to the new showroom at 103 Carpenter Drive, Suite C, in Sterling, Virginia.

"Our team is excited about the opportunities for partnerships and projects that will come from opening this new space," Williams says. "We sell an experience and provide exceptional customer service; this is what we are all about."
