The sound system in your restaurant has blown another amp. There is something wrong with the picture quality on your TV, and the unit is prone to overheating and shutting down recently, which is why it is not as good as it used to be. If your projector needs a new lamp, but you got sticker shock when you compared the price of the replacement part with the price of the original part. Each month, you have to replace a new part because you are tired of replacing it so often. Perhaps it is time for you to give your restaurant or sports bar’s audio-visual system a thorough overhaul if it hasn’t been done before.
A repeat customer of ours, 200 Fifth in Brooklyn, NY, recently contacted us for service when their five-year-old projector gave out on them. As a result, they made the wise decision to replace the unit rather than attempt to repair it. It is not always easy to know if you are making the correct choice when it comes to replacing audio or video equipment.
Replacing aging audio-visual equipment is like trading in that old beater car. An analysis of the cost-of-ownership of the product is really important. It is fortunate for most of us that we have the knowledge to do the math when a used car is costing us $2,000 in repairs every few months and requiring us to buy a new one. Unfortunately, it isn’t always as easy to assess the complicated components of audio-visual equipment as it might seem. Our team at Dara AV is here to assist you in any way we can.
Audio Visual Equipment Replacement Questions
Listed below are a few questions you need to ask yourself before you call an audiovisual integrator to revamp the sound and video systems in your home.
Do parts break at inconvenient times, affecting your guests’ quality of experience?
When half of the speakers go out in the middle of a major game and you don’t know what to do about it, you realize that you will never have that happen again. When your sound system is not working at 5 PM on Friday night, then you know you’ve got a problem when you can’t get it to turn on. In spite of the fact that you may not have the funds to replace your entire audio-visual system all at once, you need to speak to a professional audio-visual integrator to replace the parts that are at risk of breaking again and again.
Are Replacement Parts Even Available?
In the event that it becomes nearly impossible to find replacement lamps for a projector, you may as well replace the entire projector. You would have to go from pillar to post looking for the part, spend a great deal of money and time on replacing it, only to have something else break next week. There is no point in taking the risk.
How Does Your Current Technology Compare To People’s Home Technology?
If your customers walk into your bar and see old tube televisions, then it’s a clear sign that it’s time for you to upgrade your entertainment system. It is possible, however, that the differences could be more subtle. Are you ready for an HD projector? Could new DSP make your speakers sound better? There are a lot of components you can upgrade to improve the overall sound and video in your sports bar or restaurant. A professional can guide you to the right options.
Can Your Venue’s Vision Be Achieved With The Old Technology You’re Currently Using?
There may be times when a new technology system is needed and not always what a person wants. When you are having problems with your old components, it is the perfect time to start thinking outside the box. What can you do to make your sports bar or restaurant stand out from the other sports bars and restaurants in the area?
The advancement of display technology continues, with bendable OLED screens, video walls, and video tiles, as well as affordable sound systems.
Investing in new audio and video equipment today is a good idea for any of these reasons. Calling Dara AV is the first step in the process.
