Mark of Excellence Award

On January 10th, Millennium Systems Design was presented with an award at the Mark of Excellence award ceremony at CES 2018. We are proud to announce that we won first place in the category: Home Theater/Media Room Project of the Year, $150,000+. Our President, Michael Barry, and CEO, Mary Kaye Barry were in Las Vegas last week to attend CES and accept this award. The project that won this award has received national recognition in the past months since its completion. This project was not just a traditional home theater, there were design challenges that allowed Millennium Systems Design to prove our knowledge of the field and creativity in finding solutions for our client.


“We were grateful to be recognized as the winner of the Home Theater project of the year. We were up against great competition and to be the recipient of the award was truly an honor.” – Michael Barry

This project was a team effort between our staff at Millennium Systems Design, the staff at Goehring and Morgan Construction and the clients. All of the parties involved are very excited to be recognized as a Mark of Excellence Award winner. They all understand the caliber of the competition and we are all thrilled to have been chosen as the recipient.


Our client, an avid golfer, wanted to convert a standard exercise room into a quality multipurpose cinema room that doubled as a professional golfing simulation system. However, neither him, nor his wife, liked the look of the typical golf simulator. His vision was a room that could be used for both purposes but did not look industrial. He asked that his picture and sound be exceptional, yet unseen when not in use and he expected the acoustics in his room to be superior to any other theater he had been in. 

Designing this theater took a lot of calculations, trials and creativity. There were many challenges with this room and even after 10 months of working with the client to design this room we knew that a lot of what we were doing was not part of any standard system and we had to re-engineer parts on the spot to create the finished product. It takes a special kind of home owner to accept all of the challenges that go into creating such a special room and we consider him a part of the team.


“My wife and I could not be happier regarding how the project turned out and how pleasant the process was. The project was a constant and fluid evolution, starting with an idea or concept, and facing challenges even as it was being built that we could not anticipate during plan/design. To Millennium’s credit, they accepted the challenge of combining two no compromise ideas and combined them into a world class theatre with the best of both worlds in simulation and audio/video. Throughout the process they were utmost professionals, communicative, and most importantly fun and excited about what we were doing. My wife and I are eternally grateful for their work, and anyone from their team is always welcomed at our home.” –Sebastian Mascaro, Homeowner
