Our History

Matt Early, president and founder of Residential Media Systems Ltd., has been involved in the fine art of integrating entertainment and automation systems for the home for over twenty years. Starting in the early 80’s with the privilege of working for one of New York City’s premiere stereo stores, Matt honed his skills. At a time when CD’s, inwall speakers, and home theater were very much in their infancy, Matt became part of the evolution of home entertainment by being on the front line of what was to become known as the custom installation business. The early days of pioneering creative ways to hide electronics and to distribute them throughout a home was a daunting task in the homes of New York’s rich and famous.

Technological advancements, creativity, and sometimes luck were the key ingredients for a successful career in this budding industry. As time passed, the entrepreneurial spirit drove Matt into his own design and installation business which prospered in the New York metro area until 1993. Upon meeting his wife, Bernadette, the two decided to move away from the hectic city lifestyle to Matt’s home turf in Central PA. The goal was to provide a new source for experiencing the fun and excitement associated with state-of-the-art home entertainment systems into a rapidly growing market.

Residential Media Systems Ltd. has become synonymous with creative design and reliable service for the discriminating customer who desired the finest in home technology. RMS Ltd. expanded its offerings to include not only entertainment systems but unique solutions for lighting control and advanced automation systems to add simplicity to everyday functionality of the modern home.
