Chester Springs, Pa. — Home Theater Specialists of America (HTSA), the specialty A/V dealer buying group, has added its 54th member.
Joining the group is Integrated Media Systems, a Washington, D.C.-area systems integrator founded in 1979 by Tom Wells. Wells, a two-term CEDIA board member, transformed the company from a commercial sound system business into the current full service, 27-installer residential operation based in Sterling, Va.
“We are honored to become an HTSA member and are excited about the benefits of such a membership,” Wells said. “We strongly believe in the concept of sharing knowledge and would expect our involvement in this group to be a mutually rewarding experience.”
Added HTSA’s executive director, Richard Glikes, “Integrated Media Systems and Tom Wells continue the pattern of high profile, highly skilled custom integrators joining the ranks of Home Theater Specialists. The business is being recast before our eyes. Affluent customers are seeking expertise unavailable at big box retailers. Our membership is adapting to reflect the ever changing buying habits of our chosen niche.”
