mmmm

:-D My name is Royce. I will be in the mid-fifties on April 29th. I started loving electronic items from 1966. My love for it started when I was very young and opened my dad's Murphy tube radio when he was away, to check if there were little people in it. The curiosity and love for electronics is still there. Love this beautiful forum and members! God Bless you all! :yes:

Integrator like home automation? Haven't come across many people in that game. I was a sales, system designer/project manager for a small home automation company for a while. It's an interesting field to work in

Yes. It is. We use Crestron mainly to tie it all together.

Never dealt with Crestron myself, we used Clipsal C-BUS and HAi (Omni boards) mainly, Clipsal as the controllers and the Omni panel as the "brain"
Do you just do entertainment or whole home control?

I'm Rick (not really shiathouse, but that's my pseudonym on Facebook and other places).

Been collecting for 4 or 5 years I think, I'm 41 this year.

I collect lots of objects of 80s design and such, got around 200 bomboxes and only have about 7 or so left to get before i'm content with my collection.

I also do this, for those interested in 80s synth music done by modern producers http://www.synthetix.fm/
