What our customers say!
Below are just some of the generous customer references we've received.
Here at Shepherd Drive Baptist Church, based on the outskirts of Ipswich, we would both endorse and recommend DM Music for their professionalism, efficiency and quality of service and installation work.
DM’s initial contact with us was acting in a consultancy role. God willing, we hope to build an extension in the future, and they were extremely helpful both in helping us envisage and provisionally cost the audio-visual requirement for this. We were also keen to establish how we could improve our AV in the meantime whilst ‘future-proofing’ any expenditure.
Chris Dennis’ (Our DM Project Manager) informative, extremely helpful, no pressure manner gave us the confidence to propose to the membership that we proceed to install a new projector, screen and other equipment. DM’s ethos is to provide and install equipment which allows the message to be clearly given which fitting in seamlessly with our ethos.
The excellent customer service and an obvious high level of competency continued to be displayed in the installation period. For instance, a wire leading to the screen was efficiently tracked and hidden which including drilling through approximately six inches of brick. The wire from our AV cupboard to the projector was tracked in the skirting board, including through a large storage cupboard, and under a fire door – tracks that we as a church didn’t know existed proving DM’s enhanced proficiency.
The difference that this installation has made to our church, especially during busy events such as Messy Church and Family Carol Services, is amazing – as is, now, the standard of projection.
We heartily recommend DM Music. They, by their own admission, may not be your cheapest option. However, they will offer you best value against investment. We consider DM to be a partner as, God willing, we develop as a church and are delighted to have that relationship.
Gary Haseman, Shepherd Drive Baptist Church (January 2017)
Once again I am sure my colleagues will join me to say many, many thanks for your commitment on our job. I trust that God lead us to find you and place the order with you. No other organisation would have had the know how and the commitment to provide the service that you provided to Camrose Baptist Church. I specially thank you.
Ranjith Rosa, Camrose Baptist Church, Edgware (June 2016)
I have used DM Music for two different major installations and have been impressed both times. Assessment of needs always accurate and fair. Installation of cabling more than impressive. The installation itself has always gone smoothly and the after care really exemplary. Would highly recommend.
Vicar of St John's, Palmers Green (May 2016)
We are very pleased with the system, and the team have managed to achieve a good sound at almost every service, which is brilliant.
Fiona Pollard, GreyFriars Church, Reading (April 2016)
I just wanted to say how pleased we are with the upgraded radio mics at All Saints Odiham. Huge improvement!
Chris Dudgeon, All Saints Church, Odiham (March 2016)
We are encouraged by our progress and the fact that we have gone through the busiest period of the year for services without any dramas is great and even when the sound was not as good as we would have liked (our operating of the kit) the quality has been far better than previously. When we have got it right I think that I can say it has been stunning and that this will improve as we understand more about the capabilities we now have.
Our thanks to the whole team for getting us to where we are!
Julian Rowlandson, Greyfriars Church, Reading (March 2016)
We enjoyed working with you all, and were so grateful for your no fuss approach, your helpfulness, and all the care and attention you gave us.
Fiona Pollard, GreyFriars Church, Reading (March 2016)
On behalf of all those present at our “teach-in” last Thursday, we should like to thank you for the demonstration of our new equipment and your comprehensive and patient explanations. We very much appreciated your help.
At our rehearsal on Saturday everyone was delighted with our new acquisitions, which considerably enhanced our sound.
Once again, very many thanks.
Cliff and Marion Knott (August 2015)
I just wanted to say thank you again for your and your team's hard work this week. The new sound system worked well during our morning services today and I had a lot of good feedback about the improvement in quality compared to our old systems. So thank you all again!
Hilmar Hauer, St Mary Magdalene, Petersfield / Sheet (August 2015)
We operated the new screen on Easter day for the first time with a full congregation. It was brilliant and clearly visible at the back of the church. All feed back comments have been very positive. Thanks to your team for the professional installation.
John Fitzsimmons, St Marys Speldhurst (April 2015)
Just a short note to thank you and your team for the installation in the Vision Hall. We were impressed with the obvious professionalism of your engineers and their clean and tidy workmanship. As far as we are concerned everything went like clockwork and it was most useful to receive hands on training on completion.
John Duthie, Christ Church Radlett - Church Hall (Feb 2015)
I just wanted to thank you and your team very much for installing such a good system. We used it for the first time last Sunday and what a difference! It was a bit of a shock at first with the priest and the readers using their usual reading voices, but soon realised that they could speak in ordinary voices and everything was audible. A great asset and much appreciated. And the team who came to install it were excellent, so a big thank you to them and the place was left spotless.
Alison Brett, St Michaels, Barford St Michael, Oxon (Jan 2015)
Just a line of appreciation for the last two days work by Steve and the rest of your team. They got on with the work quietly and efficiently and I was particularly impressed with the neat cabling ...Please pass on my thanks to the guys.
John Deveson, Whitchurch Methodist Church, Hants (Dec 2014)
Just a quick note to thank you for your work last week. The new projector images looked absolutely fantastic at the weekend and we received many positive comments.
John Smith, Holy Trinity, Claygate (Nov 2014)
Your engineers were a most pleasant and helpful team and it has been a pleasure to work with you and your company. The system is superb, is easy to set up and we have not needed to adjust anything during a service. The congregation love it. They can hear clearly all around the church, yet it is not intrusive. Just what we wanted.
We have now had the system in for a couple of Sundays and I have to say everyone is extremely impressed. The uniformity of the sound levels throughout the building is impressive. The day after it was installed we had a funeral and the family turned up with some recorded music on an iPod. Of course it was simple to connect and control with new system. So full marks all round.
Richard Potter, St Marys, Frensham (Oct 2014)
Right from our first meeting we have very much appreciated the excellent communication and commitment provided in helping us to realise the design concept we had.
I would like to thank you for your prompt replies to each email sent and indeed the patience shown to us. Thanks to the installation team for the excellent job they did as well as the polite way they communicated with me during site visits.
Just as the Holy Trinity Church Redhill are pleased with the service you provided so too are we at the Holy Family Church in Reigate.
Anton Dunlea, Holy Family Church, Reigate (Aug 2014)
The handover was notable by the simplicity in operating the system which has been a basic for Anton and myself, as the people who will be using it will be non-technical folk. The end product is an easily managed quality system.
Users are very happy with the way they can use it with virtually any device and get some really good quality sound.
I know Anton will want to join me in saying thank you to yourself and your team for an excellent job.
Gwyther Joyce, Holy Family Church, Reigate (Aug 2014)
Everything went fantastically well last Sunday. The Bishop was very impressed with things at Fulbrook Church and special mention was made of the new sound system during the service on Sunday evening.
...Your team were absolutely excellent in everything they did and it's really quite difficult to see the changes in our church, so thank you very much.
John Harrington, St James, Fulbrook, Oxon (May 2014)
The sound system is still getting great comments. It is quite amazing how the voices from the different speakers appear so natural. They don’t seem ‘amplified’ at all, and uncannily, the voice appears to be coming from the person and not from the speakers in the roof!
Robert Green, St Mary's, Radnage (Mar 2014)
Thank you one and all for such a superb job, done very efficiently, quickly, and with minimal disruption to our church’s life. It has been a real delight to see the transformation in the church and to see the quiet and careful way things were put in place. Doubtless we will see you from time to time, so in the meantime my grateful thanks and deep appreciation for what you have created for us.
Fr Michael Lambert, Our Lady Immaculate & St Andrew RC Church Hitchin (Feb 2014)
Thank you for all help and advice - very smooth professional installation.
David Hardyman-Rice, Muswell Hill Baptist Church (Jan 2014)
Thank you for getting things together. The sound was perfect on the day!
Professor Colin Harrison, Thaxted Parish Church (Jan 2014)
Many thanks for a very tidy efficient installation at Oxlease over the last 2 days. The engineers were a credit to your company.
John Robinson, Oxlease Methodist Church, Hatfield (Jan 2014)
Just wanted to say your engineer... was brilliant – punctual, efficient and left everything very neat and tidy. Please pass on our appreciation of his hard work.
Andrew Foakes, Dedworth Green Baptist Church (Dec 2013)
...Everyone has commented on how great it was to be able to hear, and the loop users were all very happy indeed.
Darren Shilling, St George’s Church, Gravesend (Aug 2013)
All went very well yesterday. We had a near capacity congregation, I could not see many spare seats. Lots of unknown faces and lots of 'old' friends come back to wish us well. The system performed perfectly.
Malcolm Withycombe, Ruxley Church(Jun 2013)
Fantastic people and pleasant team to work with. Thank you for your hard work.
Christian Pilgrims Church, Tottenham (May 2013)
Thank you for all your patience & hard work on this project (over many years) - I really appreciate all you have done to make it happen!
John Muggleton, St Marys, Walton-on-Thames (May 2013)
April: Thank you for all your patience with the endless questions over the last 18(?) months or so. The engineers seem to have done a very good job and the system looks very good indeed. We're looking forward to using it.
November: I have been meaning to email you to say how pleased we are with the new AV system. It has been in use every Sunday since it was installed ...and people really appreciate it. So thank you and your engineers for all your help and for the excellent installation.
Simon Haynes, St Matthews Oxford (April / Nov 2013)
Just a note to thank you so much for all your help with getting our hall sound project to become a reality. The system is - so far - brilliant in it's simplicity of use and clarity of sound. The install was clean & tidy - haven't come across any snags yet!
So - I am happy - our teachers are happy & relieved it's simple - thank you :)
Jude Browne, IT Technician, Laleham CofE Primary School (Jan 2013)
I just wanted to write and let you know that we are all extremely pleased with the installation. The whole audio experience is so much better than before and has inspired our youth band in particular. The guys who did the installation did a superb job and were very helpful in the setting up and explaining how things worked.
Graham Syms, Christ Church, Southborough (Nov 2012)
Very pleasant engineer – quick, efficient and left everything tidy. Thank you.
Pat Clarke, St Michael & All Angels Church, Borehamwood (Nov 2012)
You might recall that last year you refurbished the existing sound system at All Saints Church ...We are very pleased with the result, and indeed the quality is not far off broadcast quality. I was very impressed by the way you worked with our existing equipment, not pressuring us to buy replacements. This can only be achieved by knowledgeable engineers.
John Beveridge, All Saints Church East Finchley (Nov 2012)
Firstly I'd like to say a big thank you for all the time & effort you put into to the spec & contract side of things and also to Les & Steve for the great work they carried out on the installation. You were all a pleasure to work with and were both accommodating and patient in helping to resolve the inevitable technical queries and challenges that presented themselves along the way. The AV & Sound system has been very well received and is in fairly constant use by the many different groups that use the church building. I'd happily recommend DM Music and have already passed your details on for another project locally.
John Morris, Saltisford Church, Warwick (Oct 2012)
Your guys were and are utter gentlemen with professional and graceful attitudes...
Thank YOU for your consistent help and graceful attitude, it has been a problem free and hassle free experience, so a BIG thanks to you.
Rev Steve Clarke, All Saints Highams Park (Oct 2012)
I have to say that we really are pleased with the installation of the sound system - It was used for three services last Sunday, and was highly praised by the congregations for the clarity and sound reproduction ... our vicar, was highly impressed with the system and the quality of installation.
My thanks and compliments to your engineers who arrived promptly at the advised time and completed the cabling with full thought to the fabric of the building.
Trevor Lawrence, St Saviours Church, Westcliffe on Sea (Oct 2012)
Thank you ... the new TV screens seem to be working superbly.
Paul Thompson, Gunnersbury Baptist Church (Oct 2012)
An excellent service and job from first enquiry to completion. Engineers have done an extremely tidy job.
Thank you for a great job with the sound system. A very professional job from start to finish. Thank you.
Christopher Dyer, Holy Trinity, Finstock, Oxon (Sep 2012)
It really has made such a difference to the sound in church … And I also have to say that I was very impressed by all your engineers who came along and did the installation.
Graham Syms, Churchwarden, Christ Church Southborough, Kent (Sep 2012)
To all at DM - especially Jon, Ben, Steve, Les and Chris,
Thankyou so much for all your hard work and advice in making our sound at St Gabriel's work and to a great quality.
We are so amazed by the improvement our new sound system has made. Sound checks are smoother, better foldback has led to more confident singers and musicians and the louder volume has already changed the enthusiasm of worship in our congregation. Our sound system now enhances our worship like it should rather than being an extra headache. It's fab!
The service you have provided us has been invaluable and we cannot thank you enough. It's been so helpful having your friendly and professional service at the end of the phone and such an encouragement to me personally.
Basically - we love working with you!
We wouldn't use anyone else,
Sarah De Jong - St Gabriel's, Cricklewood (March 2012)
Thanks for the encouragement and also for your assistance in every area of our system. I remain impressed with the way you and your colleagues conduct yourselves and are always willing to go beyond what is required to get the job done well. You are not just a company we hired for a job but feel that you have become friends in pursuit of doing what's best for the Kingdom of God. It's good to know that we can always rely on you.
Hans Stein - Christ Church, Swanley (November 2011)
Thanks so much David. Your advice and guidance as we stumble along is really helpful and MUCH beyond the help we get from most other suppliers to the church.
John Meers - Welwyn Garden City Free Church (October 2011)
Just a quick message to say a very big thank you for the new system we have at St Ismael's Church.
I wasn't able to come down to meet Steve yesterday morning; but my warden, Tony, met with him and was very impressed with the quality of his work and his professionalism - please pass on our thanks to him.
The quality of the system is really outstanding and we both agreed that it has been money very well spent. I am also very impressed with the simplicity of it all. I've been used to dealing with really old systems in other churches, with cables and buttons and boxes of all sizes everywhere. To see this system and how well it has been unobtrusively installed, is very refreshing and makes it all very user-friendly.
Many thanks to Jon also for all his help, guidance, report preparations and exemplory communication.
Huw - St Ismael's Church, Uzmaston (August 2011)
I do appreciate the meticulous way that you have dealt with this whole transaction from start to finish - it's a great credit to DM ... Please thank your installation team for all their attention to detail.
Mike Penny - Church House, Christ Church, Cockfosters (June 2011)
The installation was efficient and timely. The engineers were pleasant and most helpful. Thanks for the care taken with our church.
G A Hogbin - St Nicholas, Chearsley (May 2011)
Very helpful session to help us understand both the new speaker operation and how to use the equaliser with the radio mics. Les was very accommodating over this.
Chris Lumb - All Saints Berkhamstead (May 2011)
I do not know if you remember us at Dedworth Green Baptist Church, but we've been happily using the system you installed for us and it has been working really well. I must applaud the way you dealt with us at the time, the system has provided us with a lot of good use and sounds excellent.
So well, in fact, that we now want to do more with it!
Andrew Foakes - Dedworth Green Baptist Church (April 2011)
Excellent job! We will surely love to do business with DM Music again & again. Thank you!
Sylvester Orekoya - Dominion Christian Centre, London (Feb 2011)
We had one of the best services all round and of course the smooth running of the projector played a big part in that. So thank you once again for pulling out the stops for us and sending Les back. He is great to have around and does excellent work.Ron Rous - Christ Church (Feb 2011)
Thank you for your excellent installation at West Free Church.
Garth Woodhead - West Watford Free Church
We have now used all aspects of our new sound system and are well satified. The installation was efficiently and tidily done and completed on time. The quality of sound is excellent. Thank you for a job well done.
Eric Evans - Norfolk (Jan 2011)
We were very pleased with the professional way the installation last week was carried out at St James Church Centre. It was completed neatly and efficiently. On Sunday we were able to try it out and so far can say pleasantly happy with the results using mics and a laptop presentation.
Dave Stanley - Churchwarden, St James, Cowley, Oxford (Jan 2011)
I am writing to thank you and your entire team for yet another fantastic installation. Your team once again were extremely professional and the standard of work is higher than we could ever have expected. Please pass on our thanks to the install crew for finding innovative ways to handle the aesthetic challenges we gave them. The difference the new AV equipment has made to our church is nothing short of incredible, our congregation have been full of praise and the impact has been very positive.
We will have no hesitation in using DM Music in the future and are already looking at our next projects, many thanks again.
Colin Carter - New Life Baptist Church, Birmingham. (Dec 2010)
Thank you for the help you gave us during the design stage and then as we adapted the quotation (a number of times) to suit our budget. Also please pass on my thanks to Ben and his team for the professional way that they conducted themselves during the installation.
Chris Cleave - Headley Park Church, Bristol (Dec 2010)
We are absolutely delighted - People can literally see why we decided to do it, so thank you!
Rev Warner Pidgeon - Christ Church, Billericay (Dec 2010)
I have to start by saying a huge thank you to your team of installation engineers who did an incredibly neat and professional job putting in our new PA system. Where we did have questions and problems your guys came up with some great solutions, and we are very pleased with the end result. Please pass on our thanks to the whole team.
Overall we are very pleased with the new system and the excellent service provided by DM.
Chris Kemp - Loughton Baptist Church (Nov 2010)
Please extend my thanks to the two technicians who conducted the installation. They were both very helpful in terms of explaining what was being done and demonstrating how to operate the system.
Thank you once again.
Theresa Sam (Sept 2010)
From this point I can recommend your services to anyone as being Helpful and Professional.
Peter Ibberson (Aug 2010)
Just wanted to say thank you for a really high quality job from start to finish. All of the information you have given us throughout has been really clear and helpful. The installation is incredibly neat, and we are really pleased with the projector which we have been using for several Sundays.
Christopher Swinburn - Ebbe’s Oxford (Aug 2010)
Just a quick email to thank you for your part in the installation, and to Graham and his team for their professional installation last week. I deal with electricians and others regularly at work, and I wish that they'd work as neatly, and leave things as tidily as the team did - so well done! The system appears to have fulfilled our needs perfectly - we've had 2 services with the new kit now, and I have positive comments after both of them. Thanks again,
Adrian M. Hooper - Radstock Methodist Church (Aug 2010)
We have seen a huge overall improvement in sound quality. The overall clarity we now get from the main house speakers is exceptional in comparison to what we had prior.
Your guys did a really nice job of all the cabling to the new speakers and kept it as invisible as possible.
Jared Johnson - New Life Bible Church, Wealdstone (Apr 2010)
I popped into the church lounge last night to see the new equipment, and I have to say I was amazed what a difference it made to using a microphone. The clarity and volume that can be achieved without feedback is significantly better than it has been - especially when not standing very close to the mic, and I am sure it will make a big difference to the sorts of meetings that use that room. Your re-organisation of the rack makes a lot of sense too, so thanks for that.
Michael Campbell - Worthing Tabernacle (Feb 2010)
Fantastic Install. Great Team. Super Result. Thank you!
Revd Clive Laker - St Georges Church, Tolworth (Nov ‘09)
Great service. Very helpful in all respects.
Phillip Bell - Huntingdon Methodist Church (Aug ‘09)
Please pass on my thanks to the team for the excellent job they did installing our new system - Very impressed with installation team and teaching session.
Revd Karen Knight - Old Independent Church, Haverhill (Aug ‘09)
I just wanted to say thanks to you and the team for all your efforts with our installation last month. We had a Deacons meeting last night, and we all agreed that the quality of the installation, and the way in which it was done, could not be faulted. I know the guys went to great effort - beyond what might be expected - to hide cabling and make the installation as neat as possible, and your late-nights in completing the all-important details are appreciated!
Six weeks in and we are still getting positive feedback about the improved sound, vision, recording quality, etc. …the improvement in sound quality is vast, and the clarity and flexibility of the projection system and screens is a huge improvement over the OHPs!
Michael Campbell - Worthing Tabernacle (July ‘09)
The Engineers have done a very neat job and it was a great pleasure to welcome them to All Saints Church
Keith Thacker - All Saints Church, Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex (Jul ‘09)
I just wanted to say thanks to your team who carried out the installation work this week. They did a great job! They were courteous, friendly, patient when it came to adapting to suite some of the installation issues, and really helpful! Please do pass on my compliments!
I'd also like to take this opportunity to say thanks to you for the way you have been so flexible with the refining of each of the proposed phases of the work, your general helpfulness, and the speed of which you've replied to any questions we had. Thank you!
A. Murray - Christ Church, Abingdon(July ‘09)
The DAC came today as expected and were very impressed indeed. They said they thought it was the best installation of a projector and screen that they had ever seen in a medieval church and they will be recommending that other churches in the Diocese come and see.
We are delighted! Thank you very much – an excellent job.
David Cutts - St Margaret's, Ipswich (June ‘09)
We are absolutely delighted with our new sound system. Some of the elderly folk have said that it is the first time that they have felt really involved in the worship for years. Installation went very smoothly from our standpoint and we were very appreciative and impressed by Ben's patience and skill as he briefed us on the operation of the system. …Many thanks again for an excellent job.
Jeff Maddin - Royston Methodist Church (June ‘09)
May I express the thanks of all at St Mary's for the audio and video systems installed by DMIP. They are already proving a great asset, especially with those concerned with worship in the younger generation, and are much appreciated by all who use the church.
Roy Jarvis - St Mary's, Horsell, Woking (May ‘09)
Everything went very well and the people at the handover were very happy with the system's capabilities. Apparently a music CD which was played sounded amazing. …we are finding that everyone who has worked on this project is really pleased with the end result and are glad to have been involved.
We are all just so thrilled with the quality of the sound. It is really, really super …I've just received an email from [the vicar] in which he says he is still amazed at the quality of the sound. Thank you so much for the thought you put into the design, and please pass on our thanks to everyone who was involved in the installation.
Jane Cook - St Mary Magdalene Church, Stoke Canon, Exeter (March ‘09)
Now our new sound and AV system is complete and in use, I wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the system as well as the way your and your team have handled the project from start to finish. I thought the pre-contract visits were very worthwhile and gave us the chance to sort out any queries, making for a smooth installation.
I have had many positive comments over the last few weeks, from the ministry team, from the band …. and from the congregation.
Michael Hardcastle - St Peter & St Pauls, Wadhurst, Kent (March ‘09)
A fantastic 4 days of effort, hard work and advice. An outstanding installation which matched the high level of professional conduct by the 3 workers. Thank you for the fantastic service! God bless!
Steve Thompson - City Gates Christian Centre, Ilford (Jan ’09)
I would like to thank you for the work you have done for Teddington Baptist Church during this past year. We try to take pride in our buildings ….. The skills you have invested in the building have enabled us to do that
Richard Littledale - Teddington Baptist Church (Winter 2008)
On behalf of the church and myself I would ask that you pass on our thanks to all involved. Despite what appeared to me to be some very complicated changes with a few stressful moments your chaps were always polite, friendly and totally respectful of the environment and cleared up every part of the mess, which is becoming quite rare these days …. Thanks once again.
David Wilde - St Peters, Old Woking (Autumn 2008)
Just to let you know that the gear DM installed is great and has made a big difference to our sound
Adrian Rose - Linton Free Church, Cambs (Autumn 2008)
It was a great success; the singing was louder and you could see peoples faces as they looked up to the screen rather than down into a book. Judging from the responses I think we will be using it more often than we first thought: Those who didn't like the idea of a screen have now warmed to the reality and see the advantages.
Phil Chapman - St Georges, Little Chalfont (Autumn 2008)
The new digital projector system is brilliant and so much more flexible than the old OHP. So I'm really looking forward to exploring its potential in the Autumn services
Revd David Titley - St Paul’s Church, Clacton (Summer 2008)
Our system has been in use since 8 Aug and we are generally very pleased with it and the impressive capability it provides. The sound quality is widely admired, and the induction loop works well with much less polarisation than the old one.
Roy Jarvis - St Marys Horsell, Woking (Summer 2008)
The sound is working really well. The members of the choir and the servers are delighted to be able to hear the sermon etc clearly for the first time.
Margaret Jones-Evans - All Saints' Parish Church, Orpington (Summer 2008)
On behalf of St Stephens Church I would like to thank you for the work that you and your team have undertaken ininstalling our new audio/visual system. The congregation has been pleased with the results commenting on the sound quality, thrilled to be able to see the words of the songs in each aisle and impressed by what can be achieved with the cameras and split screens.
We thank you for adjusting to our project plan changes and to still ensuring that the project came in on time. We were also grateful for the way in which you advised us right up until the last on improved equipment for the same price or less. We have also appreciated your careful detailing of the installation with all the changes documented in words and diagrams.
We are looking forward to the use of our newly installed system over the coming years and are certain that this will enhance what we an offer in the church as well as enhancing the quality of our worship.
Rev Mark Barker - St Stephens Tonbridge (Winter 2007)
I first met Jon at a CRE seminar in the summer and he agreed to come at short notice and provide a quotation for us. From that meeting, until our eventual installation at the end of November he has been a constant source of support and encouragement. His visit to the church and subsequent replies to my many questions has enabled us to install a system which has delighted even the church sceptics. His professionalism was a major factor in us choosing DM.
The installation team, Graham, Ben and Steve were a pleasure to work with. I was able to be at the church throughout the installation and they discussed options and handled my questions with clarity and patience. They all had a good understanding of the ethos and needs of the church. Graham had to put up with a large inquisitive group of Elders who appeared while he was struggling to configure a defective switcher box. Ben discussed various related topics with me and made several useful suggestions. Steve was there from before the start of the first day and present throughout. He was a real asset to your team. He was prepared to listen to my ideas and went out of his way to ensure I was really happy with what he was setting up.
Terrence McKee - Emmanual URC, West Wickham (Autumn 2007)
The email I received from the secretary of the PCC says it all: “Thanks for the helpful update and congratulations on the successful completion of the project. Its first public screening with the Alpha trailer at today’s 10am service went down a storm!” There was an audible hush at the end of the Alpha ad, with a gasp from someone as the coffins ran off the end of the conveyer belt – I think it showed the impact of AV and might have persuaded someone to go to our next Alpha course!
After the service, I had lots of people coming up to me to comment on how clearly the video could be seen and to goggle at all the flashing lights of the equipment. Everyone seems very pleased and eager to start using it more fully.
Mark Chapman - Holy Trinity Church, Claygate, Surrey (Winter 2007)
thank you and your team for the really excellent AV installation you completed last autumn at Holy Trinity. Now that the system has been up and running for a few weeks and things have settled down we can appreciate what a good investment we have made. The new visuals are enhancing the worship experience greatly and are being very warmly received by the church family. Among unexpected benefits, the quality of the singing has improved noticeably as people lift their heads to read the words from the screens. We are only just beginning to use the cameras but their potential is clear too. In short a great success.
We were most impressed by the professionalism of your approach, from initial planning through to installation. We would certainly recommend DM Music to other churches and would be happy for you to demonstrate the Claygate installation to others.
Thank you again for all your good work at Claygate.
John Alpass - Holy Trinity Church, Claygate, Surrey (Winter 2007)
We are very grateful to DM Music for installing our sound system so expertly. We used it for the fist time yesterday and it really worked well. Thanks again for a super job.
Alan Murant - St Mary the Virgin, Chessington (Spring 2008)
The smile on his face said it all. A member of our church who is severely hearing impaired said that he was ‘really thrilled’ with the new induction loop. He explained that for the first time he was now able to hear most of what was going on in church and join in the worship.
We are all really thrilled with the new sound system which worked brilliantly on its first Sunday ... we could all relax knowing that everyone could hear and that the sound system worked.
The installation has ‘disappeared’ into the building so thank you for the very real car with which you did everything and your professionalism and meticulous approach.
Revd David Titley - St Paul’s Church, Clacton
We are having a great time with the PA system that you installed in Stokenchurch church, our hearing aid users are particularly delighted at the clarity of the loop system.
Revd Alistair France - Stokenchurch Church
The old sound reinforcement system at St Michael’s was life-expired, reliability and quality were deteriorating and the functionality fell well short of what is currently expected. It no longer provided a suitable platform for display and amplification of church service liturgy, songs and sermon material, and it certainly did not appeal to the younger members of the congregation!
The new system, developed and installed by DM Music, has successfully addressed all of these issues. The sound quality is excellent and well balanced throughout the building. We use a wide range of musical instruments, both acoustic and electric, including violins, guitars, flutes and electronic keyboards, and often have several vocalists leading singing. The system handles all of these very well. Last Sunday a visitor commented that the CD which was playing “Sounded like a piano playing in the room”. The screen display is clear and, thanks to the excellent dialogue with DM Music during development of the specification, the system is flexible and easy to use.
DM Music have been committed throughout to providing excellent customer service. The many site visits and innumerable phone calls and emails have paid dividends – a system which should meet our needs for many years to come. The written proposal by DM Music was accepted readily by the DAC for the installation in our Grade II listed building.
We thoroughly recommend DM Music, not only for their technical expertise, but for their quality of work. The installation includes 2.2km of cable, but it is almost impossible to find any! – it is all hidden away under floors or discretely glued to pillars.
“We needed a 21st century Sound & Vision system in a 19th century building in a location where there is great sensitivity about the appearance and use of the building. DM Music worked alongside us patiently and painstakingly during all the design and approval process, and were committed to providing a solution that met our long term needs and addressed all the concerns expressed by the many different interests involved.

The system is a vast improvement and we are very pleased with it. Thank you.

Thanks once again for all the work put in both by yourself, and other colleagues including the installers at DM. We were very pleased with the work that has been carried out and look forward to many years of service from the equipment. We are in process of running a course at the church and it has been very useful to be able to record the talks for distribution to people unable to make certain evenings - as well as playing gentle 'background' music!
Phil Bray - Parkside Hall, Maidenhead
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the excellent job of installing the sound system for Belvedere Baptist.

Matthew Nadeau - Belvedere Baptist Church, South London
I have to say that the professional and courteous way in which the system was installed, in addition to the truly outstanding result, has convinced me that DM Music were the right people to commission for this job. ... I have to say, with no exaggeration at all ..... I had no idea that the installers had even been there! It really is that good and unobtrusive. Thanks again.
Fr. Simon Grigg - St Mary Magdalene, London W1
We are very pleased with the DM sound system installed in Gressenhall Church ....... it is excellent.
Revd. John Belham - St Mary's, Gressenhall, Norfolk

Thank you very much for your company's helpful approach to our renewal project.
Mike Stevenson - Kempston East Methodist Church, Bedford
Thank you too for the way you have conducted the quotation. We were pleased that unlike other companies you looked at the building and our needs before selling us a projector. The camera link and TV in hall links are needed and it is great you have incorporated them into our scheme. Thank you too for all the quotations you have done as things have been changed to meet our budget.
Gareth Jones - Milland Evangelical Church, Hants
It was a great pleasure to be able to worship yesterday in our new building with a large band and the associated PA and AV equipment. Thank you and your colleagues for the work you did last week.

Your document and diagrams have been presented to the PCC, they were very well received due to their clarity and comprehensiveness. Thanks for all your hard work in installing our new soundest and the even harder task of training our sound guys. Thanks again for all that you have done.
Rev. Martyn Shea - Associate Rector - St George's Stamford
Everyone was delighted with the quality of sound and the absolute clarity heard from the mics, irrespective of where they had been sitting.

Many thanks Jon for all your work on this project we used the system for the first time on Sunday morning and it was fabulous people were really positive about it.
Thank you for all your help in getting the right projection system installed for us at Dagnall Street. We have had nothing but positive comments about the system and people are amazed at how easy it is to use. Please pass on our thanks to all the engineers who have helped on the installation … it was much appreciated.
Marcus Dickenson - Dagnal Street Baptist Church, St Albans
Thanks for a great install back in May we have had great use out of the system and your guys did a great job.
Jon Capper - St James Rowledge, Hants
I would just like to let you know, users of the Loop system in the Barn have told me the reception is now excellent and they can hear a conversation when there is a lot of background chatter going on. eg the primary school's Christmas Fayre.
Angela Goad - Godstone Village Hall
Thank you so much for your help in this regard, and for your continued support of our fellowship.
Eric Blowes - Stanway Evangelical Church, Colchester
Thanks very much for everyone's efforts yesterday. The engineer was great to work with, and worked very hard .... Everyone's efforts were greatly appreciated.
Laurence Biggs - St Giles, Codicote, Herts
The smile on his face said it all. A member of our church who is severely hearing impaired said that he was ‘really thrilled’ with the new induction loop. He explained that for the first time he was able to hear what was going on in church and join in the worship. A really big thank you to the DMIP team who worked their socks off. The installation has ‘disappeared’ into the building, so thank you for the real care with which you did everything and your professionalism and meticulous approach.
Revd David Titley
Our church is a mix of traditional and modern. Finding a new AV system that would suit both was a challenge. DM have met the challenge admirably and we are delighted with the result.
Rev Mat Ineson - Christ Church, Dore, Sheffield
The sound was much improved - it was much richer and filled the church much more evenly and with much less colouration and distortion.
David Jowsey - Holy Trinity & Mathias, Tulse Hill
DMIP proved to be a competent, caring and patient team for whom no obstacle seemed insurmountable. Throughout the exercise everyone we came across from DMIP displayed the utmost courtesy and professionalism: no question was left unanswered and no job was carried out with anything but the greatest care and attention to detail.
John Meloy - Church Warden, St John the Baptist, Aldenham
..having spent some 30 years in the techno-commercial world and 10 years working in a Church charity, I do congratulate you on the promptness, clarity and straight-forwardness of your quotation. One doesn’t often get the combination! Thank you for it.
Norman Oliver - St Nicholas, Great Hormead
I would like to thank you for your efforts on our behalf and for the efficient way in which your quotation was presented and questions were dealt with.
Paul Larcombe - Priest in Charge, St Paul’s, Peterborough
DM were utterly professional from quotation to installation. I was deeply impressed with their attention to detail and quality of craftsmanship in all they achieved here at St Paul's. Our new system has proved revolutionary for worship here thanks largely to the efforts of the DM team - Thank you!
Dan Wimpress - St Paul’s Church, Hammersmith, London
...I have to say that the professional and courteous way in which the system was installed, in addition to the truly outstanding result, has convinced me that DM were the right people to commission for this job. ...I have to say, with no exaggeration at all ...I had no idea that the installers had even been there! It really is that good and unobtrusive. Thanks again.
Fr. Simon Grigg - St Mary Magdalene, Munster Square, London W1
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the excellent job of installing the sound system for Belvedere Baptist. Graham, Phil, David and Steve have worked very hard during these three days and we are grateful for their service. The aesthetics of the system are fantastic! ...the general look of the whole church is improved.
Matthew Nadeau - Belvedere Baptist Church, South London
It was an excellent job from start to finish. The initial support and advice provided by yourselves was invaluable in steering the project, and the flexible friendly approach enabled us to change the spec where necessary, and take quick steps to overcome issues encountered during the installation. I enjoyed working with the team, and am extremely pleased with the end results.
Ryan Atkinson - New Springs Church, Loughborough, Leicestershire
DM’s approach was courteous and their advice invaluable as we considered what audio visual system might be appropriate for our two churches. We are very happy with their service, and they have installed systems, which we have been very pleased with. They understand the particular complexities and faculty systems that are needed to obtain permission to install AV and PA systems into (Anglican) Churches, and this has been a big help in the process.
Rev. Richard Suffern - St. Margaret’s Church, Whitnash, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire
All the members of Hawkwell Parish are delighted with the systems we bought from DM. The projector in particular has enhanced our worship and teaching ministry and adds a certain polish to our services.
David Crosby - Hawkweln Parish Church, Essex
The video projector has been an innovation for the church. It’s enhanced our presentations phenomenally and we couldn't do without it now. The video projector is great for every age group of the church.
Stephen Dutka - Hilltop AOG, Eastwood, Nottinghamshire
DM have consistently provided a friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and responsive service. This was especially evident when they supplied a replacement projector in an emergency - the equipment was received within three hours of the initial call being made!
Tim Brown - The Coign Church, Woking, Surrey
We are most satisfied with the professional and efficient service we received from our initial enquiry to final account. We would have no hesitation in recommending DM.
