Peachtree audio Design 5

I may not be able to play the piano but I definitely can play the piano black Design 5 loudspeakers

by Peachtree audio! These sounded great right out of the box... Grab your iPhone, iPad or favorite piece

of vinyl and stop by for a listen. Keep an eye out for the Nova 125 wpc integrated amp by Peachtree that is

expected to arrive in a week or so :)

Integrated custom home

Were putting the finishing touches on another great Portland / Vancouver area integrated custom home... Some of the key features include iPad control of the custom home theater system featuring Revel architectural speakers and Integra AV components. Lighting control as well as the CCTV system is accessible via the Control4 in wall touch screen and of course we're taking advantage of the Apple wifi network and Peachtree Audio DAC for wireless streaming throughout the entire project.

New Rega RP1 Turntable

As if turntables weren't cool enough already.... Rega decided to release a limited amount of their

RP1 tables with a custom Union Jack paint scheme!

Excellent build quality, reliability and ease of use combine to make a product which will offer a lifetime of musical enjoyment. Omitting all the usual gimmicks allows us to concentrate the manufacturing costs on the high quality parts necessary to reproduce records accurately. The minimalist design of the Rega RP1 and the use of extremely high quality components ensure that this turntable will last for many years. The RP1 is the first in a new generation of Rega turntables offering far greater performance than their predecessors.

I stream, you stream, we all stream...

More and more of our clients are taking advantage of the relatively low cost and simplicity of today's on line

streaming audio services. But what were finding is that not all streaming music providers are delivering at the

same or equal quality. Here is what we found from the service providers sites....

Pandora

Desktop and mobile 64K "on the web" 

Pandora One

Desktop 192K "on the web"

Mobile varies but never more than 64K

*All In-home devices are 128K

Spotify

Desktop 160K

Spotify Premium

Desktop offers some tracks at 320K

Mobile 160K 

MOG

Desktop 320K

Mobile while connected thru wifi 320K

 

We don't judge...Willie Nelson, Justin Bieber, Lynyrd Skynyrd or Adele, we just want you to have quality

source material to match the quality of your components.

Here is a good article released by Forbes a few months back.

Blu-Ray: more than just another black box.

The blu-ray player, more than just another black box. Today's blu-ray players come equipped to take care of so many tasks other than just playing a shiny round disc... Did you know that more and more are being manufactured with full web browsing capability? that's right, now you can update your Facebook status right from the sofa. Are you aware that once connected to the internet, there are literally hundreds of apps and options available, anything from online shopping, to accessing internet radio stations and of course downloading movies. Lastly, there is no reason you have to go on a hunt for a blu-ray copy of Ghostbusters because this little black box will play your current DVD collection too!

TESTIMONIALS

Richard L.

Current Home Technologies provided invaluable guidance and service when we wanted to make the leap to HDTV. I'd recommend them to anyone.

Jennifer M.

Tony and his staff really know what they're doing. They are a pleasure to work with and I'm already looking forward to our next project with them.

Dave A.

The installations are always done on time and with a focus on my total satisfaction. And they are always there to help me with any questions after the sale. In a world full of unreliable service companies it's great to be able to have total trust in Current Home Technologies.

A. Bell

The team at Current Home Technologies is exceptionally professional, knowledgeable, thorough and flexible. It has been a delight to work with them to plan for our current and future audio and video needs.
