About Us

We are located in the Chicago area, however, we are currently accepting clients all across the United States.

Platinum Home Theaters was formed in December, 2005, out of a realization that Home Theater had become an essential element in all fine homes, yet, the home theater business had become a dizzying maze of complex, ever-changing technology choices and misinformation. Home Theater ‘superstores’ are involved only to the point of selling the brands of equipment they carry, with no attention--no interest--in the people who will be using the equipment, the room itself, acoustic science, sight lines, let alone addressing the array of decor possibilities that are available in today’s burgeoning home theater industry. Consultants are desperately needed to navigate all the various perplexing elements in the pursuit of home theater enjoyment. We knew we could bring expertise and excellence to those busy clients who have no time to create a home theater --only precious little time to enjoy it.

Platinum Home Theaters seizes the challenge of bringing the best in technology to the home owner, working within their budget for the optimum results...creating Home Theaters which become the favorite room in the house, thrilling spaces for family time, as well as grand entertaining of extended family and friends.

Our Chief Designer, Jim Addie, brings over 41 years of engineering expertise to every Platinum project. Read Jim's bio here.

Platinum Home Theaters not only brings excellent work partners, such as electrical, HVAC and construction contractors that we have come to respect and chosen to work with us, we also have longtime association with Tomlinson Holman, (creator of THX Theater Sound Technology) as our consultant partner. Mr. Holman is renowned in the audio industry for his decades of research, and our Platinum Families benefit from this very special association. Read Tom's bio here. Jim and Tom share a mutual admiration and respect for integrity, high quality values, and the ongoing search for “truth in technology”. We are able to design THX, and for the first time, TMH Home Theaters for our most discriminating clients. We are the only TMH Qualified Technicians in the country. For more about TMH, and THX, see the links in the side bar.

When you contract with Platinum Home Theaters, you begin a partnership with professionals who are focused on making every phase of your home theater project a smooth and pleasurable experience. We look forward to proving your choice to work with Platinum Home Theaters was the first, best choice you could make.
