Go Digital With Your CD Collection

Go Digital With Your CD Collection

When was the last time you played a CD? A couple years? Longer? The reality is that you invested a lot of time and money in your CD collection, and if you haven’t already migrated them to digital format, now is the time. Get the most bang for your buck by going digital—and you’ll be able to enjoy your collection forever. Maybe you haven’t converted your music to digital files yet because of the time factor. At a rate of six CDs an hour for six hours a day, it would take several months to convert your entire library of music. Who wants to spend that much time popping CDs in and out of their computer? Not all CD-ROM drives are equally suited for digital audio extraction, or CD conversion – also known as CD ripping. After extensive testing on a variety of drives, we have selected and implemented hardware capable of consistently perfect rips. We will rip your CDs for you—in a fraction of the time. Digitech Custom offers this service. Both offer high-quality CD ripping and quick turnaround time. And if you’re wondering if going digital is just a passing fancy, it’s not. Digitech Custom service includes two very impressive technologies: our technology has an error-correction technology that restores even some of your most well-used CDs. Say goodbye to pops, skips and clicks! ID3 tags and metadata helps organize your music by taking into consideration all the defining characteristics of each song including artist, album, title, genre, and more. Some may wonder whether this type of CD ripping is legal. No worries: under the Fair Use Copyright...

Diving Into Home Computer Services, Computer Networking

Here we grow again. Not content with offering customers its storied workmanship and service in the home theater, security, lighting and home automation realms, Digitech Custom is branching out. On the heels of January’s IHT acquisition, we’re proud to announce the formation of a new home computer service and computer networking service division. Ranging from relatively light tasks such as E-mail setup to more involved operations like establishing a home-wide wireless network, our scope of work is all-encompassing. Here’s a sampling of some services our new unit is performing: Personal backup solutions Hardware installation and upgrades Software installation and upgrades Social media privacy setup Computer optimization Parental control implementation New computer setup / data transfer New peripheral setup (iPad, etc.) These projects are undertaken in on-site, “house call” fashion at the client’s leisure, and any forthcoming support will be performed either over the telephone, via secure computer connection or on a return visit. IT professional Patrick McKee heads up the newly-minted Digitech wing. “This new division will compliment Digitech’s increasingly high tech system integration,” McKee said. “New and existing customers will benefit from having one company to rely on for audio and video services, and now computer services.” Similar to the A/V side of things, Digitech’s top priority with its new venture is always to listen carefully, research problems thoroughly, and then deliver the solution that’s in the best interests of the customer. And as always, we’re sticking to our motto: “Keep technology simple and...

Control4 or Crestron?

    Chocolate or vanilla? Sure. Coke or Pepsi? Of course. But, Control4 or Crestron? The latter debate may not be as widely recognized as the first pair of arguments, but it’s a dispute nonetheless; and, in the A/V field, a quite common one. Simply put, Control4 and Crestron are two of the principal combatants in the home automation fight. However, beyond first glance, their competition turns out to be more of an apples-to-oranges situation than a Chevrolet versus Ford matchup. Which one is right for you? The answer to that question could very easily be ‘both’, because each brand is long on advantages and quite deficient in the shortcomings department. Let’s take a look at what each has to offer: Control4 Affordability You can call a turn-key Control4 system — one which allows you to channel your inner George Jetson and turn on the jacuzzi from another country — your own for less than five figures… A price that’s not exactly Jetson-like. Continuity Control4’s user interface, while allowing for some customization, has a standard button pattern which does not change, no matter the device. That means the volume control can be found in the same location on your iPad as it is on your master bedroom touchpanel or your basement remote. Speed of Setup Despite its technological prowess, Control4 product remains remarkably simple and expeditious to install and program. The benefit of this is obviously that you avoid excessive labor charges but, more importantly, you get to play with your new toys more quickly. Crestron Customization A Crestron system, when it comes to ergonomics and user interface, is...
