Audio Advice participation in this year’s Raleigh/Wake County Parade of Homes features an affordable flat-screen surround system at a home from Upright Builders, Inc. (pictured above) at 240 Michelangelo Way in Cary.  This year's Parade is being held, as usual, on the first 3 weekends of October. You may visit on Oct. 2nd and 3rd, Oct. 8th, 9th and 10th, and Oct. 15th, 16th and 17th from 12 noon to 6 pm. (See beneath the entry below for directions.)

The combination of home theater elements featured in the home can be adapted to almost any family den or living room. Elements include a 60” widescreen Samsung LED television,  a surround speaker combination from B&W, audio/video receiver from Integra, and Sony Blu-ray player. Components are housed in a Hampton cabinet from Salamander Systems.  The cost of the entire system pictured below, installed and calibrated at the Parade location, is slightly more than $11,000 including tax.
