  1. Home Automation
    Hi All, I could use some real help. We bought and moved into a house that came with a Savant System. I had no experience with Savant before so had no idea what we were getting. In short, it's a nightmare and I've spent $5K in two months with the local vendor that supports it since it's a...
  2. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    My parents had a Savant system installed when they set up our home theatre about a decade ago and I'm only now realizing how much of a pain in the ass dealer locked systems are. We recently bought a Roku streaming stick but in order to incorporate it into the Savant True Control universal remote...
  3. Home Automation
    Hi Guys, I'm looking for a Savant home automation programmer. We were a dealer but Savant had too many issues with software and reliability and sales requirements. I'm sure you all know the deal. I'm hoping to find someone to help me service the system remotely. I can be onsite with team viewer...
  4. Home A/V Distribution
    Hi I'm looking for a multichannel amp to hook up to some power hungry Triad speakers in a multiroom environment. The Savant AMP-8125 seems to fit my needs. Can I use it as a standalone amp? I don't have any other Savant peripherals (Savant Host, network, etc). I just want to use it as a dumb...
  5. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Would be very grateful if someone with more knowledge than us can perhaps point us in the correct direction with this very strange issue. Had our system set up by a professional 2 years ago. Basically a rack in utility room which feeds two main rooms, including cinema room. All sounded great to...
  6. Home Automation
    I am getting ready to start on a new construction home and I'm currently debating my home automation options. I have met with both Savant and Control 4 dealers and honestly I'm torn between the two. I love the sleekness and user interface of Savant but after spending many hours in the forum...
  7. Home Automation
    Hi all.. I was recommended by my builder to a local integrator while constructing my new home a year ago. He put in a Savant host HST-SMRTD-00 and lighting panels, programmed everything on to my Wi-Fi, and got it working the way I wanted. He told me months later that he no longer was supporting...
  8. Home A/V Distribution
    Hey guys! So I recently purchased an older home and would like to update it a bit. We'll probably have 5-6 TV's, each TV has a coax cable and phone line running to it (going to use the DirectTV genie system for TV) (Yes, phone line NOT catV). There are also a handful of speakers on the deck and...
  9. Remote Control Area
    I'm moving into a home that has a main level living room that is pre-wired for 5.1 theater setup. All of the speaker wires and TV HDMI over cat6 terminate in the basement. So I will need to be able to turn on the TV in the living room but control the receiver, cable, blu-ray, etc in the...
  10. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I had started the owners thread for a couple of the A-x0x0 threads.. Missed the x050 series... Thought I'd jump back into AVS after a brief absence with this thread... This post 1 will be updated with full details and links in the coming week as I have the time... Give me some time to get it...
  11. Home Automation
    Hello, I'm curious what it takes to become a Savant Integrator? If you have to private message me that's fine too. I'm curious because there is a thread that says Savant Dealer's are getting screwed and one person mentioned how they have more requirements, which is why I am wondering what...
  12. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Hi I'm new. I've been lurking a while and I would appreciate some thoughts from your experienced voices if that's appropriate here. I just bought a house and it's undergoing remodel soon. These are my wife's must-haves for audio: - ability to play music through the kitchen, family room and...
  13. Home Automation
    Hi, I have a Savant system running 6.0+ software and wanted to upgrade to 7.0. I am being told the software upgrade alone is 790$+ and about 2 days of programming at $85/hr. Im no programmer but this seems a little crazy for an upgrade of system software so that it becomes compatible with new...
