GOLDENEAR TECHNOLOGY

We are often asked to describe the sound of our speakers. A simple answer would be that they are designed to sound like nothing except what is being played through them. Of course, a perfect loudspeaker would have no sound of its own and we do strive for perfection. But nothing is perfect, however, and so we would like to address this question by coming at it from several different directions.

HIFI PREAMPS AND AMPS

The equipment in many ways is more important then the actual speaker. Tube amps can significantly add warmth to the overall sound and a quality preamp can add depth that you wouldn’t know you were missing until you hear it. McIntosh is a brand who has built a stellar reputation for reproducing sound as close to the original artist intended as possible, and some of our favorite cabling lines like AudioQuest make sure the power, line level signals and speaker level are not degraded at all along the way. Audio Concepts not only provides knowledge and superior service on name brands that we feature in our certified showroom, you will also find treats on display from local California manufactures like VTL and Primaluna.

PrimaLuna is one of our favorite local manufactures. With both integrated and seperate preamp/amplifier combinations, they have a system that will fit your budget and provide that warm soothing sound that you are definitely going to enjoy. We highly recommend coming into our showroom to hear the Evo series paired with a set of Golden Ear Tritons. For the price invested, its hard to come close to this kind of quality system.

DIGITAL MEDIA

Because of our expertise in the Custom AV industry, Digital Media is an area that Audio Concepts really shines. With all the new formats out there, you can now actually listen to your favorite song in a format that is as good or even in some cased better then vinyl and analog. MQA was developed my Meridian (the sames people who developed the popular Flac that Apple uses), with MQA you truly get the original “Master Track” like it is playing on the studio speakers during mixdown. It doesn’t get much better, and at Audio Concepts we have a great way of integrating MQA into easy to use interfaces so you spend more time enjoying your music then trying to get your songs playing.

INTERCONNECTS

AudioQuest, Tributaries, Synergistic Research are a few of our favorite interconnect options. The cabling you choose is just as important as the speakers and equipment you are driving them with. In some cases the cabling can even improve your audio, like in the case of AudioQuest’s Dielectric-Bias System which solves a major issue of phase shift that most listeners hear but do not realize is going on. Again this is where Audio Concepts can be the experts that help you ears hear the track the way it was meant to be heard.

Audio Concepts (now Oasis) installed a new smart home automation system at our home in Newport Coast. The technicians answered all our questions and were super helpful. I recommend them to everyone.

- Sallie-Anne Swift

One of Orange County’s few Audio Visual stores that actually know their stuff. Highly knowledgeable staff with a great selection of high end equipment for home theater systems.

- Ron Mason

By far the best high-end home theater company in Newport Beach. It’s amazing to see how they can transform your audio/video experience and give you the right product for what you need.

- William Cain

Audio Concepts is the best! I tried several digital vendors in the past and now I have my “go to” guys. They were knowledgeable, on time, professional, and reasonably priced. Strongly recommend you give them a call for your smart home, theater, security or other technology needs.

- Rachel Svoboda

It makes me sad that there are so few of these shops left. Scott & Steve are both terrific guys that patiently answered all my questions. While they both know much much more than I do on the topic of home audio, not once did I feel like that. It was like 3 old friends discussing their hobby. I ended up getting a fantastic deal on a current Mcintosh piece.

- Mike Lafirst

Technicians are super friendly and thorough. Really enjoy the follow up that I receive since installing my Control4 system in 2016.

- James H

Thanks to Desert Valley for always being there if ever an issue comes up with our AV System. We always get prompt service and they are always determined to get the issue solved to our satisfaction. Can’t say enough good things about Justin and his employees. Thanks to Jen for going above and beyond for getting us scheduled with Thomas ASAP just recently to have a battery fixed with our alarm system.

- James Staffa

I hired Desert Valley Audio to set up surround sound and multiple rooms of TV & Audio. Seth was the superintendent on the job, unfortunately I did not get the other gentleman’s name. They did an outstanding job! Seth is super knowledgeable, a hard worker and a pleasure to be around. Thank you for having such great employees!

- Baron Adelmann

Thank you DVAV for making our home perfect for entertaining! Adam and Jacob who completed the initial installation treated our needs and home with TLC, as if our home were their own. Jeff and Alan completed upgrade to a larger screen TV and update installations quickly and professionally.

- Bob Abbott

Our experience from beginning to end was first rate, made even more special by the fact that substantially all the work was done without us being on hand. We have always been big fans on doing business locally with independent owned businesses and our trust was amply rewarded with Desert Audio.

- Wayne Townsend

I had this place install cameras at my two offices and home. They did great work and the price was reasonable. Their technician, Jonathan, was professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend this place and Jonathan.

- Steve Vogt

Desert Valley came in really quickly to help fix our system and did a great job diagnosing the situation. We have come to the conclusion that our ISP needs to do some repairs on the system. Thank you Desert Valley! This is my correction to an incorrect review I have previously made.

- Tyler Bugeaud

Justin has done it all for me. My office, my homes and has even helped out our other business. I found him in Stone Creek Furniture doing a Media Wall and the relationship has blossomed into a great friend who knows AV! Great guy and his wife and staff are amazing. Definitely could rate them more than 5 stars if it were allowed.

- Ryan Jones

Dennis & Justin just installed a new TV for us. Another excellent job. Always helpful and efficient. Can’t say enough about how good these guys are! Justin and Jon make a great team. They were very efficient, didn’t oversell, delivered on everything they proposed and have the nicest group of folks working for them.

- Martin Simonetti

I hired Desert Valley Audio Video to upgrade my home entertainment system here in Scottsdale. The reviews are 100% correct. The sales, knowledge, installation, and price we’re excellent. The follow up phone call to see if everything was alright, or if I had any questions was a nice touch!

- J. Busch

I work for a Advertising Agency called Colling Media and we had them do some commercial AV work. These guys were fantastic and did a spectacular job. Dennis and Justin were the guys that did our install work and we couldn’t be happier with it. Highly recommended.

- Jayson Shreve

Very professional and knowledgeable staff. Will definitely use again for all my audio needs!

- Doreen Bennett

Joe and Ben and all the techs are the greatest…They make the Contolr 4 experience super me and Sue…I recommend to anyone who has or is thinking of going to control 4……..

- Mike Hall

Scott was quick and efficient in resolving my audio issues. Job well done.

- Gerry Sewell

Jeff and Manuel were pleasant, patient and very competant. They made my knowledge of the Control 4 System more comfortable

- Dr. Joseph Palermo

We took a long time to decide which A/V company to hire. We talked to three different companies and rated them good, better, best. Desert Valley A/V came out as the best, so we decided to pull the trigger. From the beginning, Justin and team were very professional and answered my multitude of questions. I would highly recommend Desert Valley to any of my friends and family.

- Zack Romero

These guys are great. Super friendly and super efficient. Have used them more than once and will use them again for future needs. Highly recommended!

- Jared Kavlie

I had to get the COX minibox installed to my bedroom TV. Jeff from Desert Valley AV came out yesterday and performed all the work and did an excellent job. The new box required a software update and some trouble shooting that he did a superb job with getting everything to work. In addition he helped with some questions on Control 4.
