Got great advice and excellent service!

I decided it was time for an upgrade to an old A/V receiver I had had for some time and bought one from a big box store. I went looking for someone to install it and get all the other components to work with it. At the same time, I was looking to upgrade my HDMI cable that went from my cabinet to the TV in the family room.

I made a couple of calls and was almost immediately contacted by Aaron from Think Cinema, who offered to come out and look things over. When he arrived, we discussed my needs and it became obvious that Aaron knew a heck of a lot more than I did. He suggested that I purchase an AV receiver different from the one I had purchased. Also suggested that I go with 8K HDMI cable to future proof my system to some extent. Also suggested a wireless all in one remote that controlled all of my components in addition to installing an Apple TV box. I asked about my rear speakers which weren't providing the surround sound I was expecting. He suggested a good upgrade and also suggested a new subwoofer. He got me a quote for all of these items very quickly and I agreed to proceed.

Once he had all of the equipment, Aaron set up two days to work with things and install them. He had a worker there to help run new cable to my TV in the other room. Because the original cable had been installed at the same time that new cabinetry had been put in, they were unable to fish the cable through the same route, however, they did a good job of finding an alternative. This will require a little extra work on the cabinet, but it was a satisfactory solution to a somewhat difficult problem.

Aaron set everything up, had it all working on one remote and balanced the sound of the system as well as adjusting the TV settings.

I was very comfortable with Aaron and very impressed with his service and excellent advice.

Fixing Surround System after Internet provider Change

Story Time
We had a store that we knew and worked with a few times over many years install a sound system into our newly renovated family room. It all worked and then we changed providers of internet and tv programming and phone. The system no longer connected. We reached out to the original provider to come help fix to the new provider equipment. They came they saw they left never to be heard from again. I then searched for a new provider.

Thank you Aaron for being the provider who
#1 Answered the call
#2 Showed up!
#3 Came to diagnose and see what was needed to complete the
change
#4 Who showed up to do the work and install what we needed.
#5 Pivoted and went to get something we did not buy mistakenly
for the install appointment
#6 Finished the job perfectly
#7 Made it all work seamlessly so we could enjoy our sound system!

100 Percent Recommend Aaron and Think Cinema. He was amazing to make us all happy to enjoy the system we have and I will 100 percent reach out for any changes or upgrades in future.

Happy Happy Customers

Wonderful Darla! I love story time haha. We're so happy you reached out to us and we got you all worked out. You have a very lovely home and the recent reno to family room really deserved to have a functioning home theatre that you could feel happy about. It's a shame the original outfit couldn't deliver on that, but I also can't say we are that surprised. We see this kind of thing a lot from other companies. Anyway I'm glad we were able to work with you and get you feeling good about the space again. Hope you enjoy the entertainment, and let us know if you need anything in the future!

Sincerely,

TV Wall Mounting

We would highly recommend Think Cinema's services. We contacted Aaron to mount two TV's for us, one on a masonry fireplace wall and one on drywall. Aaron put a lot of thought into the job ensuring the TVs were not only secure , but also properly centred and level. The man was quite meticulous in his work and left a clean work site when completed. After a quick demonstration on how the mount worked he fine tuned the picture on the TV. The picture honestly never looked better.
We are considering adding a sound bar and will definitely use Aaron's expertise in selecting the right equipment and also mounting to our installation.

TV wall mounting

This is the second time I have utilized Think Cinemas TV mounting services- just like previously, Aaron did an amazing job!

The mounting wall in my living room wasnt the standard wall with a mix of concrete and dry-wall- Aaron still took the trouble of coming in multiple times with the right set of tools (the wall was quite unpredictable!!), even when being a weekend and even working around his personal weekend plans.

Appreciate his commitment to delivery a quality, job well done!

Home theatre, automation, and networking

We contacted Think Cinema for a Control4 consultation about a year ago. It was immediately apparent that Aaron is an expert in audio and video. His focus on identifying our goals, the wealth of experience he brought to the conversation, his respectful and professional demeanour, and his willingness and ability to explain everything convinced us to move forward. 

Since then, we've had Think Cinema design and install a home theatre system, mount two other TVs (including into new cabinetry), run networking through multiple rooms in the house, install Control4 for A/V control and home automation, and connect it all into a networking and A/V rack in our basement. The systems Think Cinema installed are perfect for their rooms - both performing excellently and fitting into our visual aesthetic. We continue to be impressed months after installation!

Aaron also made excellent recommendations for professionals in other trades to do complementary work. He then organized them, coordinated all the site visits, and oversaw their work with his signature attention to detail. This made things easy for us, and we're equally happy with their work.

Aaron has been a pleasure to work with, and the quality of his work has been first-class. Something that stuck out to us is the pride he takes in his work. He sweats the details and treats our home like his own. We couldn't be happier with the results and are excited about our next project with Think Cinema!

We are thrilled to hear you are so happy with our services at Think Cinema.

When we incorporate home theater, networking, smart home automation, and so on into a single project a lot of time is spent working with the client. There is a lot of information to be exchanged, problem-solving, and understanding of one another. The relationship we make with the client is very valuable if we are to be successful. In this case, the testament to our success has just as much to do with you, as it does us. Thank you for being our customer. For putting your faith into my hands as a designer, and trusting that we deliver you the best system, at the best price, with the very best service.

I look forward to working with you again soon!

Aaron,

TV/Soundbar/Gaming Console Wall Mounts

Would highly recommend Think Cinema! Aaron came in and mounted our 65 inch TV along with two gaming consoles. He was very thorough with his process and suggested the necessary mounts for our TV and sound bar that would fit what we were looking for aesthetically. I looked at other companies but never received the kind of details and questions that Aaron provided.

He also recommended wall mounts for our gaming consoles which ended up looking really great.

Pricing was very thorough and fair.

Communication was great.

Overall, I will recommend Aaron and Think Cinema to anyone and will definitely call him again in our next home!

Highly recommend; exceptional service & product

Aaron has provided exceptional service & product. We've worked with Aaron over several years. His level of follow-through, reliability, care and product knowledge has been consistently high for the entire period. Aaron has helped with broader home automation, networking, TV+audio installation and cameras. In instances where we've run into obstacles (that are a matter of set-up when the house was built, not Aaron's fault as he wasn't involved), Aaron patiently helps us trouble-shoot and get to a better path. We refer Aaron to our friends without hesitation. Highly recommend.

Home automation and home theater

It was very difficult to work with Aron from the beginning. But we had no choice as our money was with him. This is what we found.
He is always busy with his other customers and he has no time for you.
He is doing the project not with sound knowledge but with experimenting, trial and error sort of.
He said it would be OK for the electronic equipment to stay on the drive way because it is packed. (The packing said it should be protected from sun and rain.
He didn't place covers on the speakers. When asked, he texted saying I should do it myself.
He doesn't think that he should consult the home owner before placing sensor and such items.

Company Response

Hello, I am sorry to hear this is how you feel you've been treated. Unfortunately, a lot of what has been said here is false testimony and considered an attack on my business. As a company we do not stand for bully tactics and ask that if you have a legitimate concern or request, to contact us professionally via business e-mail or phone number. At that point myself or a representative will be happy to speak with you about your concerns during regular business hours.

We have informed Homestars of the job we completed professionally, and to your request, over a year ago, but resulted in non-payment and relentless abuse (by you) with no clear objective, other than to cause the business harm. Your project was completed with the utmost care and respect for you and your home. Many extra hours of my personal time were invested in ongoing discussions with you about your project, and further, I have always made myself and our services available to you. That said, we will not tolerate abuse.

We've had no contact from you for over a year. I have tried to get in contact with you but have received no reply. I would like to help you but continuing to discredit our business and services with false statements makes it more challenging to do so.

Again, if you would like to let us know how we can help you, please contact us at (647) 801-5250, or info@thinkcinema.ca.

I look forward to resolving this matter with you.

Aaron, Think Cinema

Wall wiring

It was a specific task for help to route some HDMI and CAT6 wiring behind some cabinets & brick work. I almost gave up hope then Think Cinema offered to help. In a couple of sessions, managed to get the wires passed. Also advised on some future-proofing areas for hardware which I appreciated. Will likely use them again when the time comes for any newer, more sophisticated upgrade needs. Recommend.

We are so happy to hear you are happy with our services and passing along the recommendation. So glad you can enjoy the TV over the fireplace now that we managed to get the upgraded HDMI cables routed through the cabinetry. Please let us know if you need anything further! - TC
