DTX - Digital Theater Experts, Inc.

About Us

DTX is the Midwest's premier audio-video retail store and custom home theater design center.

All three of the owners are audio video enthusiasts that live and breathe the industry.Why? Because it's FUN!  DTX carries some of the same products used in the world's best music and movie recording studios- Products used by SKYWALKER SOUND, ABBEY ROADSTUDIOS, George Lucas, Peter Jackson, and Steven Spielberg just to name a few.

When you think of doing anything in your home, you'd talk to a designer, you'd talk to a consultant---you'd talk to an "expert". In the case of putting audio-video in your home, why would you do anything less than that?  Knowledge, training, and experience are not gained overnight or by sitting in a training classroom, but by past experience. We at DTX are the experts in our field with years of experience in the audio video industry and we love what we do!  DTX wants to bring this same level of excitement to your home entertainment experience!
