Testimonial – John, Bloomfield Hills
“Rick and his team from Gramophone Home Theater have worked with me over the years to set up my home theater and to keep it working smoothly and to keep it up to date with the new technology trends. Rick took the time to understand my needs and desires, and offered me many options to work within my budget and my theater room layout. The equipment he recommended is very high quality and has served my family well for many years. His technical team is expert and friendly and goes the distance to make sure we know how to operate the system easily. My wife, kids and especially my grandkids love the movies and shows we enjoy with our movie projection system, surround sound and ten-footcinema wide movie screen. And of course, they love the popcorn machine that is a MUST for almost every event!”
Thanks for the good work Rick
Testimonial – Gary & Nancy, Bloomfield Hills
Nancy and I have been buying audio and video equipment for our home and business from Rick and Gramophone Home Theater for over 20 years. During that time, Rick and his team have installed a high end home theater in our great room and a home theater and controlled lighting system in our lower level family room. Then Rick installed a wall of TVs in the restaurant in our golf club.
Three years ago Rick and his team updated the TVs at our club and modified the existing custom cabinetry to accommodate the newer flat HD TVs. Recently, we added a large 4K HD TV in the lounge at the club. Then we had Rick update our systems in our home with the new technology. Rick’s team then ran TV cable to our kitchen, master bath and upstairs bedrooms. He even moved our modem/router to improve the Wi-Fi in our house.
We have always enjoyed working with Gramophone Home Theater. They never let us down. When there is an emergency at the club, they will respond quickly. Rick’s team is prompt, neat and clean. We are extremely happy with our equipment and their work.

I have been buying audio and video equipment from Rick Howard, owner of Gramophone Home Theater, for many years.
I bought my first high end audio product from Rick 25 years ago and it’s still being used in my home theater today. Over the years I purchased a number of components from Rick.
Then, about 6 years ago I met with Rick and his design team. I wanted to make a plan with them to design a state of the art theater in my home. The first part of my new system would be comprised of audiophile speakers and electronics and an entertainment furniture cabinet.
Then, a couple years later I purchased a new subwoofer and some beautiful leather theater chairs.
Recently, I had Rick and his team, upgrade my system and install a 4K movie projector with a special lens and a digital theater level screen with masking. My system looks and sounds magnificent. I couldn’t be happier or more satisfied with the equipment that I purchased or the quality of the installation.
Whatever your budget, Rick and his team will work with you to find and install the system that best suits your family’s needs. I recommend Gramophone to friends and family. You will find none better.
Testimonial – Mort & Millie, Bloomfield Hills
Millie and I have been doing business with Rick and his team at the Gramophone for more than 20 years.
We originally purchased a whole house music system and had it installed. The installers did a great job. They were always punctual and neat and clean. The music system worked great and the family had a lot of fun using it.
Later, we purchased TVs and recently we had a new home theater installed. Rick worked with our existing built-in cabinetry and was able to get a much larger new TV to integrate perfectly. The new system looks and sounds fantastic. We asked if they could move the old TV into the office and hang it on the wall. Rick’s installers hung the TV and the sound bar and hid all the wires perfectly. We were on a roll now, so we asked Rick if he could install a new sound bar in our existing master bedroom cabinet and add a learning remote control. Mission accomplished.
Finally, we asked if there was some way to get a larger TV installed in our fancy new kitchen cabinetry. Rick figured out how to install the TV and match our stainless steel appliance cabinetry.
We are extremely happy with Gramophone and their team of experts and we know they will answer any questions we have and teach us how to use our new equipment. We recommend them to all our friends. Thanks guys!

Recommendation for Rick Howard, Gramophone
First met Rick in early 2006 when I was renovating my Beverly Hills home. He and his team installed a family-room system with state-of-the-art equipment. The real value is how they solved a technical issue and running 40-50 feet of cable though ceilings and walls to encapsulate everything in cabinetry (no wires visible)…still perfect today!
There have been two additional projects (2010 and 2016) since, to include a game room, basement theater system, 4K smart TVs and whole-home Ethernet cabling. In every case, Rick’s team was timely, neat and tidy. They are not satisfied till everything is perfect and you, the customer, are successfully running your new system.
I highly recommend Rick and his Gramophone team for any TV or Home Theater project. You are guaranteed to have the latest and best system. And, he will stand by his work for years to come.
Testimonial – Chuck, Birmingham
When we purchased our home two years ago we had a theater room with outdated equipment and a whole house speaker system with no idea how to use it or set it up.
We contacted several audio companies to get proposals and ideas where to begin.
Rick Howard at Gramophone Home Theater was, hands down, the most knowledgeable and helpful. He guided us as to what was necessary to replace and what equipment could be saved.
Their installation team, especially Cliff, was excellent. They were very thorough and neat. The system has worked excellently and when we needed a little help it was always forthcoming. I believe the cost was reasonable and we would call Rick again if we ever decided to add more equipment.
One extra note, if you don’t currently have an updated system and you want to buy new equipment, they will guide you through how to use your new system.
Testimonial – Ron, Shelby Township
This is just a note of appreciation to you and your installation team for the great work they did installing our new home theater and stereo system. The guys were great and the work was clean and professional. Their attention to detail was appreciated.
As we began to bungle our way through the many techno options of the system I was really thankful for the ability to contact you and/or Cliff with user questions. Your response times were quick and we did not miss our favorite shows and music.
I will not hesitate to call you in the future when we decide to expand the system in additional areas of our home.
Testimonial – Beverly, Clarkston
About 2 years ago, I purchased a home audio/video system from Gramophone Home Theater. My decision to go with Gramophone Home Theater was based on the expertise & experience of Rick & his Team.
Rick visited my home, & based on our discussion, Rick designed a complete and integrated system, including the furniture cabinet for my new TV & state-of-the-art components. I was very pleased with the appearance & performance of the System. It continues to exceed my expectations.
Additionally, I asked Rick & his Team to design & install a speaker system for my garage. Rick & his Team were prompt in responding to all questions & concerns.
I am completely satisfied with both systems & highly recommend Rick & his Team to all.

As a specialist in micro surgery, attention to detail is critical for success in my field. Over the years, I have worked with Rick Howard and his team at Gramophone Home Theater on several projects for my home.
I have been extremely pleased with their customer service as well as their own meticulous attention to the details of home theater installations.
Testimonial – Mike, Troy MI
We have been buying audio and video equipment from Rick and Gramophone Home Theater for many years. About twelve years ago Rick and his team designed and installed a “cutting edge” home theater system in our den. Then Rick’s guys installed a surround speaker system in family room. A few years later, Rick rewired our recreation room and installed some great speakers that we used for parties.
Recently, Gramophone updated our home theater equipment and added ultra high definition 4K TVs in the den and family room. Our buying experience with Rick and his team of professionals has been a great one.
I never feel like I am being pressured to buy something I don’t need, and, they are always willing to go the extra mile to answer any question or meet a dead line for a holiday or special party.
