Barrett's Home Theater Renamed: Barrett's Technology Solutions

New name reflects extent of services it provides consumers.

Naperville, Ill. -August 19, 2010 -Barrett's Home Theater, the high -end consumer electronics expert, has changed its name to Barrett's Technology Solutions. The company elected to change the name in reflection of the growing focus of its products and services on systems beyond home theater. This will be the fourth name change for the company since it started as Barrett Magnavox in 1966.


"'Home theater' no longer represents the extent of our services," says Joe Barrett, President. "Barrett's Technology Solutions better illustrates a broader spectrum of our diversified capabilities in both the residential and commercial space. Besides audio and video, Barrett's sells lighting systems, home automation systems, home networks, and various other technologies."

In addition to the name change, Barrett's Technology Solutions introduced some new products offering consumers innovative solutions for their homes and businesses. Their showroom now showcases a Lutron lighting center, which offers energy -efficient lighting control; Powerhouse Dynamics, an affordable home energy management system; and Control4 home automation solutions; as well as an educational networking display for consumers. Over the past few years, Barrett's has also expanded its service lines to include commercial projects, and the company frequently outfits hotel rooms and boardrooms with high -end electronics.
