History

In the spring 0f 2003, DSH Audio was begun by industry veteran David Hosbach at the request of friends who were members at St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Benton Harbor, MI.  The church was in need of a new sound system, and the congregation did not know who to turn to.  At the time David was a “free agent” evaluating offers from professional sound contractors and manufacturers.  David worked closely with the St. Matthews church staff and councils to evaluate their worship setting and the needs for sound based on that and their budget.  He laid out a system that was installed in 2004 and, over 10 years later, still operates without trouble as it did back when it was first installed.

The “original” DSH Audio went dormant in 2004 when David began work in design with a sound contractor in Milwaukee, WI.

DSH Audio Visions was established in November 2009 in a spin-off network relationship with Scott R. Riedel Associates in Milwaukee.  (Riedel and Associates is a nationally-known acoustical and organ consulting firm; check them out at www.riedelassociates.com).

DSH-AV was incorporated as a Limited Liability Corporation in June of 2010.  DSH-AV President David Hosbach worked for Riedel as Lead Audio-Video Design Consultant for several years after spending the majority of his career in audio-video system design-build contracting and on the factory level.  In May of 2010 DSH-AV was incorporated as a Limited Liability Corporation in the State of Wisconsin.

DSH Audio Visions maintains memberships in the NSCA (National Systems Contractors Association) and InfoComm.  Both are leading trade associations for the audio-video installation industry, providing trade shows and educational opportunities that help us stay up-to-date with products, technologies, and installation practices.

 

Market Emphasis

At DSH Audio Visions we have the expertise to take on many types of audio and video projects: houses of worship, school athletic facilities and auditoriums, civic performance halls, and sports and entertainment venues.

However, our core business is focused on the house of worship market, with a particular passion for and emphasis on “classic” reverberant spaces such as cathedrals and other traditional worship spaces.  Examples are The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Mobile AL;  Gesu Parish, Milwaukee, WI; and the Chapel of the Christ, Martin Luther College, New Ulm, MN (see references for other examples, all of whom you are invited to contact).

DSH Audio Visions is nationally-recognized as a very-high-quality design consultation firm driven by a passion for helping the client “get it right” from concept to completion.  Attention to detail, timely response to requests for information, state-of-the-art yet practical systems design, and an insistence on coming back to tune the completed audio system have become hallmarks which in many cases separate us from our competition.

Said John Hurley, Systems Engineer with Lee Hartman & Sons of Baltimore, MD, “It is a pleasure to work with people like yourself, who genuinely care and take ownership of the end result of a system.”
