“Really knowledgeable, pleasant and helpful team. I had a good experience all the way from initial contact/sales, through implementation and support. They're good and developing a sense for the client's expertise/fluency and meeting them where they are.”
“I appreciate how Audio Advice lives up to their name and actually provides expert advice that makes it fun to purchase amazing equipment. Thank you for making easy to have a complex home theater or even to select a great pair of headphones.”
“It's really hard to compare this company with any other electronics retailer I have worked with in the past, they are in another league. Yeah, most of their inventory can be had elsewhere, and sometimes you can find better prices. BUT, these guys offer EXCEPTIONAL customer service. Can't recommend AA enough!”
“The staff at Audio Advice has been invaluable to us. From house-wide audio to home theater, their knowledge and installation skills are top-notch! As an audiophile, I am extremely pleased with the ongoing support from the entire team.”
