“Working with the people at HiFi Club to create the dreams of our clients, is always a pleasure.”    Charlie Starbuck, Starbuck Minikin
HiFi Club was started by Hans Betzholtz and Elaine LeVasseur in 1988,  offering design and installation of custom Audiophile music systems. Since then, the Club has expanded to offer multi-room audio and video, home theaters, and automated control systems for residential and commercial spaces. Every project, small or large, is still individually designed after much study and collaboration. We test and try out every product we sell and consistently design for high performance and ease-of-use. Our projects have been featured in numerous national magazines, including Robb Report’s Home Entertainment Design and Stereophile’s Guide to Home Theaters.     Our trained, experienced and CEDIA certified staff includes a sales and design team, a systems integration and programming team, installation teams, an ISF certified video specialist, service specialists and administrative support.     We’re proud to be Green. Automated control systems for home and office can increase the efficiency of many sub-systems such as irrigation, indoor and outdoor lighting, and HVAC, to save water and energy. Rather than trying to master several different kinds of control boxes, HiFi Club can combine control of these systems, along with audio and video, into one simple interface, designed especially for our client.

They’re talking about us. Listen in . . . “We have been working with Hans for over fifteen years. We get him involved in the early planning stages so that his input and expertise can be integrated seamlessly with our design solutions. Hans and his staff are first rate, very knowledgeable, professional, responsive and fun to work with. They always strive for quality and excellence. Not only do they make us look good, but more importantly, they make us sound good.” Andy Neumann, A.I.A., Principle, NMA Architects “I have found that having the HiFi Club folks working for me is almost like having family over for a visit. They are more than efficient, friendly and professional. They are enjoyable to have over and discuss my system, how it works, and how to best enjoy it. But the best attribute of HiFi Club is knowing that if ever a problem should arise, they will be there in a heartbeat to fix it.” Ron Morrow, Capital World Investors, client “The HiFi Club is the ‘gold standard’ for home media systems! We have now completed two fabulous installations with the team at HiFi Club. They are highly creative and very enthusiastic about their commitment to deliver high quality systems that are backed with experienced service and support.” Marilynn Jorgensen and Errol Jahnke, clients “HiFi Club listened to what we wanted and delivered it. HiFi Club can take something complex and make it simple – that’s real genius!”  Rune Eliasen, client “HiFi Club’s high standard of excellence and attention to detail makes our part of building a successful entertainment area that much easier. Working with the people at HiFi Club to create the dreams of our clients is always a pleasure.” Charlie Starbuck, Owner, Starbuck Minikin, Inc. Custom Cabinetry “HiFi Club has always been my first choice when it comes to top-of-the-line audio and video systems, installations and service. They are always a pleasure to work with, and always available when called upon. We love both the performance and simple operation of the system that Hans recommended and installed in our own home!” Geoff Crane, Giffin & Crane General Contractors, Inc. “As a builder, I appreciate that HiFi Club provides my clients with the latest technology in audio video entertainment systems. The folks at HiFi Club work hard to provide superior service and to meet our construction schedules. Combine those elements with proven reliability and that spells real value!” Bruce Giffin, Giffin & Crane General Contractors, Inc.
