About Us


Cincinnati Home Cinema

When we began installing residential audio and video systems 25 years ago throughout the Greater Cincinnati area, very few audio-visual products existed beyond those old square picture tube TVs and 50” rear projection TVs on four wheels.

As the custom install A/V industry began to grow and new and larger screen sizes were introduced, three-channel surround sound helped attract consumer attention away from their old TVs with those awful little speakers, to much larger screen sizes and three-channels of surround sound utilizing a surround processor with external free-standing and built-in speakers.

Our original Cincinnati showroom in 1988 featured 25 rear projection TVs, and a two-piece projection system with a 100” screen and a projector the size of a Smart Car! As business continued to grow and we expanded operations to offer ever larger screen sizes, five-channels of surround sound and custom whole-house music systems, manufacturers continued to develop new and exciting products from higher resolution DVD players to cable and satellite TV, with the eventual introduction of High Definition video during the fall of 1998.

Fast forward to today and you’ll find American Entertainment continuing at the forefront of custom audio and visual systems for home and business with screen sizes limited only to available space, spectacular theater surround sound, an endless selection of entertainment from Blu-ray discs to cable and satellite TV, terabyte capacity video servers, plus streaming Internet video sources like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video and many others. And now we are excited to offer Ultra High Definition 4K video with four times the resolution of today’s HD Blu-ray DVDs, flat screen TVs to 90”, and 4K projectors and screens that rival the finest theaters anywhere in the world. Couple all that with easy-to-use touch control systems, energy-saving lighting control, a seemingly endless source of streaming video and audio entertainment whenever and wherever you want it throughout your home, and you have American Entertainment at its greatest!
