Warmest Regards,
Larry & Danielle, Wayne, PA

Dear John, Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the fantastic job you did for us! Our surround sound system, inside and outside, have been outstanding; we continue to be the envy of our neighbors. The service that you provided was far superior to all of the vendors that we come in contact with and you continue to memorize us with your knowledge and professionalism. We can’t thank you enough for continuing to serve us while Comcast continues to mess with our system; you’re a tremendous asset!
We would recommend you to any of our friends or family that would have a need for a home system; you’re the best! Thanks again!

Last Fall I charged John with the unenviable task with designing and implementing a state-of-the-art sound system for my old house. My only instructions were that each room be able to sand alone and also be integrated with other rooms to allow maximum flexibility for my family's listening pleasure. This, I can attest, far easier said than done.

John listened and understood. He designed an elegant solution that was within budget. He recommended excellent hardware. Hard wiring through walls, floors and ceilings was installed with deft craftsmanship. After installation, John explained everything in simple and easy to understand terms (for we are most definitely low-tech), and he was readily accessible to us after the work was done.

An excellent job installed as promised and a heartfelt recommendation from satisfied clients. This is our experience with John Englehard and Acoustic Playgrounds.

If you ever need high quality and state-of-the-art home entertainment systems John provides a great service identifying which products and systems are appropriate for your taste and budget. I have never enjoyed watching a movie or listening to music as much as I now do after having John set up my system.

John helped me choose and install the components of a projection screen, home entertainment system recently. The project turned out great and I'm very satisfied with the system. I would definitely recommend John to anyone seeking professional AV expertise at a reasonable cost.

I started buying Hi-Fi audio equipment from John back in 2005, and he has consistently gone above and beyond to teach me about the products and science of his trade, while listening and responding to all my A/V needs.

Over the past several years, John has helped me to build a system I couldn't be happier with, and that never ceases to impress my friends and family whenever they visit

Most importantly, thanks to John's outstanding work, I am able to enjoy my favorite songs and artists like never before. The equipment he provides brings out the highest quality of music that I have ever heard outside of a live performance, and best of all, I can enjoy it any time I want from home
