If you found us here, there’s a high chance you already know
what we do.

However the irony is, the better we do our job, the less of our work you will see.


Ian and Brandon met whilst working at another retailer in Central London. Disappointed with how disengaged some customers were with their overly complex A/V set ups, together they vowed to deliver systems that were easy to use for the whole family.

“The baby-sitter test” is often invoked – can someone, who has never visited your house before, walk in and play some music, turn on the TV,or get online?

ButhRobinson has now been in business for over 20 years.

How we

“Home Entertainment / WiFi installers are the new ‘do you know a good plumber’ in these working from home days. This is to recommend ButhRobinson who I have used for 10 years across several projects. Real advice, superb installation, still led by founders, great staff and above all, genuinely excellent after care service.”

Rupert Evenett, End user/ Customer

When we have an outline of your requirements, we will produce an estimate for your consideration. This estimate is totally transparent – you won’t find any mysterious ‘miscellaneous’ items or ‘provisional sums’ in our proposals.

Should you wish to go ahead with our system suggestions, we produce a detailed system layout diagram, cable schedule, and TV elevations etc., so that your electrician can install the relevant cables. We will meet your on-site team in person, giving us the opportunity to explain the requirements in detail, while also being on call throughout these initial stages to assist with any queries.

At the risk of blowing our own trumpet, the assistance we offer during this crucial stage is one of our strengths and one of the reasons we continually receive repeat business.

Once the cables are in place and decorations are complete, our team is ready to install and commission the electronics.

Our Team

Our team may be small, but with well over 100 years of combined experience and nearly 500 completed installations we believe your project is in excellent hands. A key philosophy of the business is that every installation is completed as if it was in one of our own homes – no shortcuts.

We like to meet up in person over a set of plans to discuss your project.


Brandon is usually your first contact. He’ll design a system to fulfill your brief and produce detailed proposals for your approval. He’s a stickler for design, and firmly believes technology should augment your home & décor, not compete with it.


Ian will take over from there and run the job from First Fix to Final Fit. He describes himself as a ‘professional worrier’. An ideal trait in a project manager.


Guy joined ButhRobinson in its infancy. Known as a bit of a problem solver, and a superb programmer he is the Senior Engineer in our team. What Guy doesn’t know about AV & Networking isn’t worth knowing.


Rex ran his own A/V business before joining ButhRobinson, single-handedly designing and installing A/V systems. This makes Rex an excellent all-rounder. He has an eye for the little details and prides himself on spotless documentation.


Jack is the newest recruit in our expanding team. A fully trained electrician, he is equally at home with all things AV & IT. There’s nothing he loves more than listening to some obscure AV-related podcast whilst he commutes home from work.

But don’t just
take our
word for it

“Our clients range vastly in their requirements for AV, from tech founders, to musicians, to complete technophobes and in every situation I have total confidence that ButhRobinson are the best company for the job. They have proved their reliability and excellence in what they do, time and time again, in what is now a decade long working relationship.

As a designer and project manager, they make my working life easier, nothing is too much trouble and they always go the extra mile to make sure the client is satisfied. They understand the importance of working as a team, both as designers and as a trade on site. Their problem solving skills and industrious nature mean there genuinely has never been something they can’t figure out or accommodate.

I trust them completely to provide aftercare 
for our clients, knowing that they are in good hands means it’s another thing I off my plate and for that I am very grateful.”

Megan Oliver,
Designer, Godrich Interiors

“When a client asks us for an AV integrator, we introduce them to ButhRobinson. Straight forward and knowledgeable, they listen to our clients and tailor the AV in a way we are confident will only enhance our projects.”

Architect, Studio Mackereth

10 principles
for good design

by Dieter Rams


Good design is innovative
The possibilities for innovation are not, by any means, exhausted. Technological development is always offering new opportunities for innovative design. But innovative design always develops in tandem with innovative technology, and can never be an end in itself.


Good design makes a product useful
A product is bought to be used. It has to satisfy certain criteria, not only functional, but also psychological and aesthetic. Good design emphasises the usefulness of a product whilst disregarding anything that could possibly detract from it.


Good design
is aesthetic
The aesthetic quality of a product is integral to its usefulness because products we use every day affect our person and our well-being. But only well-executed objects can be beautiful.


Good design makes a product understandable
It clarifies the products structure. Better still, it can make the product talk. At best, it is self-explanatory.


Good design is
Products fulfilling a purpose are like tools. They are neither decorative objects nor works of art. Their design should therefore be both neutral and restrained, to leave room for the users self-expression.


Good design
is honest
It does not make a product more innovative, powerful or valuable than it really is. It does not attempt to manipulate the consumer with promises that cannot be kept.


Good design is
It avoids being fashionable and therefore never appears antiquated. Unlike fashionable design, it lasts many years – even in today’s throwaway society.


Good design is thorough down to the last detail
Nothing must be arbitrary or left to chance. Care and accuracy in the design process show respect towards the consumer.


Good design is environmentally friendly
Design makes an important contribution to the preservation of the environment. It conserves resources and minimises physical and visual pollution throughout the lifecycle of the product.


Good design is as little design as possible
Less, but better – because it concentrates on the essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Back to purity, back to simplicity.
