Welcome to ControlAV
This site documents the history and status of my own home theater system and whole house audio/video distribution and control system. You can read how I got to where I am, the way everything is configured, the mistakes I made, and equipment reviews. The goal is to help you learn from my successes and mistakes, and to share information. Check back regularly for updates (my goal is to post some new content each month at least but if you look closely you'll see I have been a slacker for several years now).
I recommend starting with the Overview, then maybe checking the Equipment reviews.
