To Whom It May Concern:

Our original sound system was installed by another company, taking over a month to wire our basement area, which was unfinished at the time. Once they were finally out of our house, the sound system with our collection of CDs did not sound the quality we wanted. Eventually, the system needed repair and rather than going to the original installers we selected Brian’s Encore Sight and Sound. At that time, Brian informed us that the CDs were being compressed too much and that with a minor adjustment and cost, we could have a system that met our quality standards. Brian worked with the system and our components guiding us to a few new purchases. He reworked what we had; incorporated a few new “bells and whistles”; and tweaked it all until we now have an enjoyable experience. He continues to coach us on how to get the best use from our Control4 system. He indulges us when we “mess up” and comes when we need him to undo what we’ve done. He’s both creative and innovative when it comes to meeting our personal entertainment system needs. We cannot say enough good things about him. Cheerful, knowledgeable, responsive, creative, respectful, and patient are just a few of the adjectives that come to mind. We highly recommend Brian and have recommended him to others in our community.

To whom it may concern,

It is my pleasure to write a letter of reference for Brian Pantle. Brian’s company placed a lock system and wired a video sound system in my sound studio. Their work was done timely and with attention to detail. They also kept their eye on the budget and communicated any and all changes that came up. Having worked with several contractors on projects with my business and at home it was refreshing to work with honest people who actually communicated with us. I would highly recommend them for any project they feel they can handle. Call me personally with additional questions.

I am writing to recommend Brian Pantle of Encore Sight and Sound for future work in home entertainment installations. Brian installed a home entertainment system in my residence. He did an outstanding job in all phases, from pre-sales design support, to installation, to follow-up in person at my home. I am confident that he would do a great job in similar future work.

Brian met with me in person and over the phone to talk through options for my entertainment system. He started by providing a detailed spreadsheet, showing me the range of options I had for my system and what were the relative costs. From that list, we worked together to identify the system we desired. He took an inventory of the components I already owned, making sure that I didn’t buy something I didn’t need (I appreciated that!). He worked up a quote with different options and followed up in person to talk through those details. We eventually decided to go ahead with a particular plan. I knew that what we had specified together was what we wanted, how much time and effort it would take, and how much it would cost.

Brian worked hard to get the system installed in a short period of time. I gave Brian an aggressive schedule. He worked above and beyond the normal work week hours. He spent more than one weekend day at my home installing the system. In the end, he made better on my timeline for the installation by more than a week. The quality of the work was not compromised by the speed at which it was performed.

Brian has visited in person and called to see how our system is performing. We are very pleased with the system and glad for our purchase and our decision to work with Brian. In summary, the installation was performed ahead of schedule, on budget, and with high quality.

I would strongly recommend Brian for future work of this kind. He is conscientious, diligent, hard-working, and easy to work with.

To whom it may concern:

I write this letter as a testimonial to the quality and timely work that Brian Pantle, with Encore Sight and Sound, did in my house. I currently reside in Windsor, CO and paid Brian to come into consult and then also do the cabling and wiring for my home, along with my current home theater system and the planning of my future High definition system in my basement (upon completion of finishing my basement.

Brian was amazing when it came to “hearing” what I wanted, making intelligent and sensible suggestions (that would even save me money), and then explaining what I “had” to have in order to fulfill my expectations. Brian also completed the job in a very timely manner, on budget, and performed with a high level of integrity and honesty. I would HIGHLY recommend Brian and Encore Sight and Sound to anyone looking for a quality planner and installer of home integration systems.

Please feel free to contact me if you need any more information.

To Whom It May Concern:

I and my company have had the great pleasure of engaging the services of Brian Pantle and Encore Sight and Sound for the installation of home automation system of varying complexities in several of our high-end custom and spec home projects in and around Steamboat Springs. We perceive these systems, incorporating lighting, heating, security and audio/video controls, as having evolved well beyond the stage of simple gimmicky to the stage of having become an invaluably useful feature for ehnancing the convenience, safety, enjoyment, energy efficiency – and value – of our homes. We pride ourselves on building “distinctive” homes, and Brian has played a key role in helping us do so.

Brian and his crew are personable, knowledgeable, courteous, patient (that’s the hardest part, having to deal with knuckleheads. . .), and professional in every sense of the word. They have in-depth skill in design, installation, and calibration. Brian makes himself immediately available for support, fine-tuning, and programming assistance – probably the most valuable service of all. His bids have been quite competitive, which is how we got hooked up with him in the first place, and he has not busted a schedule for us yet.

My highest recommendation is that, for Habitat, Brian and Encore remain our preferred Home Automation and A/V source. I can offer no higher recommendation than that, as we take our business and our reputation quite seriously.

If you should wish to speak with me personally about Brian and his company, please do not hesitate to contact me anytime.
