In 1976, Stereo Types opened our doors with the purpose of providing the finest products & service for the people of Charlottesville.
Fast-forward to now… Clients just like you have afforded us the ability to evolve our mix of products and services, expand the areas we operate in… all without succumbing to the pressure of becoming a high-volume provider of low-quality, price-point driven systems.
Ego aside, no one stays in business for over 30 years by accident. They find their niche and they stick with it, making small adjustments to remain relevant.
Still based on Charlottesville, VA, our merger in 2013 with Richmond, VA-based CGS Technologies; a technology systems engineering & specification company; has allowed us to expand our business beyond the Central VA region as we now service clients throughout the country who appreciate the same concierge-like service that has kept clients just like you doing business with us for more than 25 years.
Expanding our reach to areas like Ft. Lauderdale and Naples FL, our team now includes certified Savant, Crestron and Control4 dealers to create truly custom technology solutions for our clients.
Stereo Types team of experts are sure to deliver an exceptional experience during, and following your purchase. Our mix of product solutions has grown from humble beginnings with amps, speakers, turntables and tape decks to the latest high-tech entertainment, smart home automation systems, innovative concealment systems, networking and productivity solutions for your home or business.
From Headphones to Home Theater Systems; Intercoms to Video Conference; CDs to Whole House Audio; TVs to Projection Video Systems; Network Wiring to Campus Networks, Stereo Types has your high-tech needs covered.
Stereo Types staff is a team of highly-trained experts, each of which possessing a minimum of 10 years in audio/video/automation systems .
Only by having clients like you, is it possible that Stereo Types has been able to retain and expand our team of experts in order to continue delivering personalized, concierge-like service.
Unlike the typical technology store business model of hiring low-cost employees and then trying to train them to do every job in the company, Stereo Types team is made of up experts who are heavily vested in their specific job rolls. An Installer doesn’t need to clutter their minds with also learning how to work the sales floor… the sales team isn’t expected to toss on a pair of jeans and a service shirt to install the TV they sold you.
That said, our project managers and engineers all possess the skills of the sales, install and programming teams; thus unlike most privately held companies in our business, there is not this issue of the 1 person who has the keys to the kingdom so-to-speak.
What makes Stereo Types different?
Anyone can sell you a black box... but no one delivers the support during and; more importantly; after the sale like Stereo Types.
Innovative design, expert installation & concierge-level support post installation… that really is what makes StereoTypes different. That said, we also realize to the layman client, all techies who present themselves as half-way intelligent can easily leave most clients feeling they will deliver on this. It’s not really ’til the dust has settled following the system installation that anyone really comprehends exactly what they are paying for when they elect to do business with StereoTypes…
…In fact, a recent client told us this: “When I decided to work with you guys, it certainly wasn’t because you were the cheapest… in fact, you were about 25% more expensive than others I had bid the job. It was purely because I trusted what you were saying… the message about all systems having design specifications, drawings and user manuals meant something to me having been down the road of working with similar companies. And while you guys did what you said you were going to do, it really wasn’t ’til I sent a message at 9:30PM on a Saturday when I couldn’t get the music working; with no expectation of hearing from anyone until Monday; and received a response back within 30 minutes that I then really understood the value in having StereoTypes as my AV guys.”
If you’re someone who’s idea of value is getting something cheaper than others are selling it for, StereoTypes is not likely the company for you. If you are someone who understands, as an individual, time is our most valuable resource and appreciates having experts in their field do what they do best; there is little doubt that StereoTypes is the obvious choice as your media and technology partner.
