I recently moved back to Manhattan and have been out of the loop here for quite some time. Unlike a lot of other parts of the country where one can quickly find the best through word of mouth due to only a few selections, there are countless high end theater design and construction places up here, many of which want to charge you outrageous Crestron install costs and then give you mediocre components because they're used to just taking money form uninformed patrons. So, I figured I'd ask you guys about personal experience and recommendations about custom places in the NYC area that I should check out? Thanks!

First thing you should do is define what you are wanting to do and what you have to work with. Second, I would not limit myself to just NYC area. There is a whole nation out there! smile.gif

Word of mouth is still good, in NYC. Ask friends and colleagues.

As you say, they're all expensive in Manhattan, but they're not all good.

As SMB alludes to, you could hire his company for the design. They know who the quality installers are, from personal experience, in most areas of the country.
