The Sound Environment Delivers Home Theaters and Music Systems with High-caliber Service and Seamless Results

Increased demand for quality home theaters and music systems have defined The Sound Environment’s mission.  High performance and ease of use are hallmarks of Sound Environment designs

The expertise and personnel to get the job done right

The Sound Environment Listening RoomThe Sound Environment was founded 45 years ago by current President Charles Santmire.  The current  location in Rockbrook Village in Omaha allows the company to demonstrate home theater and music systems in four spacious rooms.

Thirty years ago, Jim Wichita, Director of Installations and Design, came on board and has been with the company ever since.  The Sound Environment completes high-level installations throughout the region and from Florida to Hawaii.


“Our staff lives with our product in their own homes, and therefore can relate to what a client might encounter when living with an audio-visual or control system.”

Much of the company’s business comes from recommendations from satisfied customers.

The company approaches each job as being unique, and caters to the individual lifestyle of each client, observing and evaluating his or her needs with respect to daily routines and personal preferences.

A Sound Environment InstallationThe installations process begins by discussing and demonstrating what can be done and the level of performance possible. Desired performance, ease of operation and budget concerns are all taken into consideration in determining the appropriate solution for each client.
