As you've undoubtedly noticed, there are lots of new products and technologies available in the world of home entertainment and automation. In many construction trades, most of the people involved are unfamiliar with these audio. video, and automation products, and with the range of technologies outside of their areas of expertise.

Home Theater Specialists of America, or HTSA (Leon is the 2010 president), has prepared a great guide for helping you ask the right questions when it comes to building a new home or remodeling your current one. This Home Technology Planning Guide contains sections on the following areas: Home Control, Home Lighting, Wiring Your Home (Infrastructure), Networking, Home Theater, Mobile Device Integration, Stereo vs. Surround Sound, Whole-House Music, and Video & Video Distribution.

This guide is available for pickup at both the Raleigh and Pineville showrooms of Audio Advice.
