Custom Electronics has come a long way since our humble beginnings more than 40 years ago. The idea for the company was born in the late 1960s when, as an audiophile, I continuously upgraded my stereo system to find that "perfect music reproduction." I even built my own cabinetry to house my system, records and reel-to-reel tapes. In 1967, I finally decided to sell audio equipment because the high quality stereo equipment I wanted wasn't available through local dealers.
At the time, my wife and I lived in a rented house with a large attic. This modest space became the home of Omaha Custom Hi-Fi until 1969, when we opened our first store at 13th and Vinton Street. We soon changed our name to Custom Electronics and specialized in custom installations of large systems.
Quality Performance, Year After Year
Since the day we opened our doors, Custom Electronics has always been committed to high quality music reproduction. Our video experience is almost as long as our audio experience. In 1970, we began selling professional video systems to industrial users such as Northwestern Bell (now Qwest) and the U. S Army Corps of Engineers. We sold video displays, cameras and processing systems that were up to broadcast quality levels.
In the mid-1970's, Custom Electronics was one of the first dealers in the nation to display and sell the original projection televisions (Advent Novabeam 1000) designed for consumer use.
Over the years, I have found that nothing delivers long-lasting satisfaction better than the performance of our people and our products. While our products have changed at the pace of advancing technology, one thing has remained constant. At Custom Electronics, we sell and install home entertainment systems and electronics equipment engineered to give the best musical performance possible within the price range of our customers.
We enjoy seeing the look on our customers' faces when they experience their music or movie on one of Custom Electronics' systems for the first time. It all goes back to our passion for performance...and that will never change.
