We listen to your needs

We know that each individual project is different and that no systems are exactly alike. Therefore, we treat them with our absolute undivided attention until the project is complete. Our customers should expect no less!

We provide designs that work

It's one thing to design a system. It's another thing to design a system that works! Many individuals can claim to have the ability. But, what have they really done to demonstrate that they have the expertise in the field. At Sound Advice, we have been doing audio/video for over 30 years. If you want it done right the first time, just stick to us!

We implement the complete capabilities of your design

Most all of today's audio/video systems have a complicated and integrated set of parts. If one part of the design is left out, the system may not function to it's capabilities. At Sound Advice, we have a staff of trained professionals that take care of that. Your system will have all of the necessary components that make it unique.

We provide years of experience in installation of audio/video systems

When Sound Advice completes an install, you will know that it was professionally installed. At Sound Advice, we take no shortcuts and will do the extra legwork to assure that not only do you have a complete fully-functional audio/video system. But, you will have a safe and organized system in the event that you want to make additions!

Provide state-of-the-art equipment

At Sound Advice, we take pride in the vendors that we use to provide our customers with the cutting edge technology of today. We do not provide outdated equipment that you will regret 10 years from now. Our vendor list includes some of the most respected manufacturers in the industry. All of our vendors have gone through an extensive vetting process that includes on-site testing to assure that you will not be disappointed!

On-site designers and programmers

At Sound Advice, we understand the changing landscape of technology. Programmable systems are here to stay. Therefore, Sound Advice trains and staffs our Company with some of the best, unique, and capable automation programmers in the industry. All of our current programmers are accredited with the Crestron Technical Institute and achieved "Automation and Integration" certifications, including "Master Programmer".

Friendly sales staff

The sales staff at Sound Advice understands that when the consumer contacts us, he/she is expecting to have a unique and informative experience. You will get that at Sound Advice. Sound Advice is not a big box retailer, we don't claim to be. At Sound Advice, you WILL get first-class attention that is consumer specific and second to none!

Service after the sale

Although our products are considered some of the best in the industry, it is electrical. One of the things that Sound Advice provides that box retailers do not is our UNMATCHED customer service after the sale. You can contact us anytime! Not only will we already be familiar with your system, we will provide the necessary time it takes to correct any issues that you might be experiencing.

Quality is not an ACT, it is a HABIT!

Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.

What our Clients Say!

When my husband and I were shopping around for a perfect company to purchase our new home theater, we were getting confused with all of the terms that people were saying... RGB, RCA, ... and on and on! At Sound Advice, they kept all of the terms simple and I was able to clearly picture what they were designing. Awesome job! I love it!
