Cane Creek Audio Video is Frank Goldfarb, his associates and the companies we work with. We offer expert custom installation,> TV and audio tweaks, and room acoustic evaluation and correction.
A Word from Our Owner:
After five years working for two other local AV companies and competing against most of the other Audio/Video companies in the area, I feel confident in stating that we will be will more competent and cost effective, through more efficient designs, installation and fast service than anybody else in the Western North Carolina area. We are also friendly and easy to work with and would be happy to provide references that support these statements.
Our designs lend themselves to be user friendly and after we complete our installations, it is unusual for us to hear from our customers regarding problems. It is more common for us to hear about how happy our customers are with the work we have done. Our efficiency saves our customers money on labor and I personally promise that we will be around to provide prompt and competent service, as this is what I base my reputation on and we have references available to back this up.
Unfortunately, the traditional AV business model leads you to the last two companies I worked for, until beginning Cane Creek AV in 2011. One of these companies no longer exists and the other has exited the entertainment industry. I still continue to fully support my customers from both of them. Without the overhead of a showroom, without direct employees and with just the three of us doing all of the work ourselves, the quality of our work is truly excellent. This business model enables me to do our work more efficiently, with greater reliability, better financial stability, greater audio/video capabilities and much more responsive service.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my website and we look forward to serving you.
Audio/Video Consultation Services
Custom Design & Installation Services
*We provide electronic repair services and modifications for almost anything that has to do with audio and video, including Solid State and Tube Amplifiers, Preamplifiers, Integrated Amplifiers, Receivers and we even re-foam older Loudspeakers. We especially enjoy working on the older classic gear.
Something New from Cane Creek AV
Besides our normal installation services, we now offer consultation services that will provide you with a full system design, including recommended equipment and labor costs for your design. There is a sliding charge of between $100 and $200 for this service, depending on location and design parameters, but once you have this, if you don’t wish to hire us to do your work, you will know a lot about what you can do for your entertainment needs.
The consultation fee is refundable if we are hired to do your work, depending on the scope of the work. Basically, labor needs to be at least $300 for the refund policy to be in effect. We will install equipment not purchased through us, but do not offer support services for this equipment, although our installation is guaranteed for one year. Our basic labor rates are increased by 20% if we install equipment provided by others.
Most of our clients hire us to do their work and most purchase equipment though us, as the quality of our products are first class, our prices are fair and people want us to be responsible entirely for their systems. However, this is up to each individual and we are as flexible as we can be in this regard.
We hope to hear from you, as we are just a click or phone call away.
These are some of our product partners.Electronics:
This is a part of Cane Creek AV’s listening Room, featuring one of the CCAV’s Model 1 speaker system, made by us and capable of huge, realistic, dynamic swings, with lifelike sound quality. The finish on this speaker is Santos Rosewood, but many other veneers are available. The cabinet walls are laminated sections of void free, Baltic Birch, Plywood for an incredibly inert cabinet.
55in Samsung Plasma TV over the fireplace with a two channel Klipsch/Denon sound system. The original installation, not performed by us, had the cable box, Wii and DVD player sitting on the mantle. The look was terrible, as was the sound quality from the TV speakers. We moved all of the equipment into an adjacent closet and control is though a touch screen remote. The door to the closet does not have to be opened for the remote to work. The owners like the new sound quality as much as the new look!!
High end audio, two channel audio system with a networked 50in Panasonic Plasma TV and solid Walnut Argos speakers from Daedalus Audio. The sconce mounts, as well as the table for the equipment, were custom made of solid walnut. Amplification is a Tempest tube Integrated amplifier from Rogue Audio and Marantz Blu-Ray player.
This is a Home Theater we did in Black Mountain. The speaker system is a 7.2 channel, in-wall, Klipsch system driven by Onkyo electronics. Even the two subs are mounted inside the walls. Video is courtesy of a three chip JVC projector and control is via Touch Screen Remote control.
This is an installation of a TV that normally resides inside the cabinet. When the owner pushes the TV ON button on his Touch Screen Remote, the TV rises and is ready to watch. All controls, including the House Music system, are through a Touch Screen Remote.
This is a complete shot of the Cane Creek Music Room, featuring CCAV Model 1 speakers and mostly Rogue and PS Audio electronics. Sound sources are via a Well Tempered Labs turntable and an iMac as a server. The Mac stores over 1900 CD’s at the present time via WAV files, all downloaded from my personal library. Control is via an iPad and the sound quality here is as good as I’ve ever heard anywhere.
In early April 2016, I called Cane Creek AV and left a phone message about seeing if they would have any interest in looking at my fourteen year old home system (theatre, whole house audio, etc.) ,which had recently had a number of components fail, and give me idea of what it would take to repair and update the system. I called them based on the testimonials I read on their web site. I expected a call back in a few days and hoped that I might get someone out to our home in a few weeks just to look at the system.
Frank Goldfarb called me back within an hour. He was traveling in Virginia taking his son to look at colleges. He set up an appointment with me the following week and within a day or two after that he presented a proposal. I agreed to it and now just four weeks since the first call, I have a fully updated system controlled by IPads which allows me to stream audio and video throughout the house.
Frank was wonderful to deal with and was very knowledgable. He did everything to meet and even exceed our expectations. His crew was great as well. I would highly recommend Cane Creek AV for any of your AV needs.
I just wanted to say thank you for everything you and your team did to bring our house into the 21st Century! You were very professional and courteous the entire time. We have worked with other audio/video companies and your team puts them to shame. When you left our house you would never know that you were here, other than all our new equipment. No holes or scratches in the walls!!
Thank you for a job well done!

Even More Testimonials
Frank and his team did an excellent job planning and installing the equipment in our house. Things were changed as I decided to add some items at the last minute. They were flexible enough to make the changes required without incident. Also they were available to trouble shoot “operator error “ issues and dealt with those professionally as well as timely.
