About Raymond Earl
Raymond Earl got his start like so many technology company founders, in his garage. As a teen he was fascinated by technology, primarily because of his love of music and movies. He was one of those boys that built his own components and speakers. In college he focused on business, and in 1981 he was employed by a commercial systems integration company in San Diego working on indoor and outdoor performance venue systems such as the Old Globe Theater and the Starlight Amphitheater as well as various radio and TV stations. That led to later working for a high-performance home audio company in sales and system design. In 1984 he started his own business Exclusively Entertainment.
In 1988 Raymond won the San Diego Design Center and National Street of Dreams Award for his design and the National Peer Award for technical execution. Before he knew it he was installing custom audio in large homes along the California’s Coast from San Diego to San Francisco. As a pioneer in Smart Home Integration his systems came to include multi-room audio-video, home theater, lighting and more. After moving to the central coast in 1993, Raymond Earl Design (RED) was born.
In 2013, RED was on the cover of CEPro magazine, the leading custom electronics magazine. Raymond also enjoyed having his projects in several national and international magazines such as San Diego magazine, Orange County Magazine, Home Entertainment Magazine, The Robb Report, and Audio/Video Interiors.
The RED team, led by Ray, has had the pleasure of enhancing many homes, estates, and even castles in Santa Barbara, Monterey, and San Luis Obispo counties with his entertainment systems. His experienced, professional team is highly qualified and participates in ongoing training through frequent classes and webinars with special attention to personal, quality customer service. Finally… smart home technology for the way you live!
