I have helped thousands of AVR owners (primarily Denon and Marantz) for the past 8 years to troubleshoot their existing AVR setup issues. In addition to continuing to provide tech support, I have also assisted prospective AVR buyers for the past 2 years in selecting an AVR that meets their feature/input/output requirements and that is within their budget.

Hi – I’ve been a home theater owner and enthusiast ever since I got a free electric screen off a construction job site in 2002 ! That electric screen got me interested in building my own home theater. My first real home theater projector was an NEC HT1000 DLP projector, back in 2003. Since then, I’ve owned an Optoma H79 projector, a Digital Projection dVision 1080p projector ( both bought from AV Science before I came to work here as a salesman ), a Sim Lumis Host and a Sony VW 600ES. I’ve built myself four different home theaters over the years, and helped friends build home theaters too. I came to work for AV Science so I could help others build great theaters at an affordable price, just like I’ve done over the last 13 years. I’ve also enjoyed building my own surround sound systems, from 5.1 to 7.1 to my current 11.2 system, using Martin Logan Motion series speakers, a Denon receiver and SVS subwoofers.
I work remotely from California, and am always available for help, questions, or to order home theater equipment, Monday through Friday, from 8:30am until 4:30pm, Pacific time.
I’m passionate about home theater. We have 2 – 4 movie nights a week with friends, year round. Let me help you build the theater of your dreams ! Thanks! Craig Peer
