What A Few of our Customers Have to Say…

I’ve been a customer since Feb 2005 when I purchased my first pair of B&W stand mount loudspeakers. I was hooked ever since. Dave, Chris and Joe are the best in the business. It’s great doing business with them and the support is second to none. If you need audio, home theater, automation, etc, don’t go anywhere else. They’re real pros with no pressure selling. You won’t get that at the big box stores. Go now and make a purchase.

Peter N.

Great experience. I could have purchased from a big box store for my tv, stereo, and speakers. However, I found the prices and customer service much better at Audio Video Synergy. I never felt pressured to purchase anything. They took out the extra time to guide me in the right direction and ensure that I would be happy with my purchases.

Robert G.

Incredible experience. I’ve purchased speaker stands, subwoofers and an Oppo blu ray player in the past from them. The employees are VERY friendly, prices are very reasonable and the selection of products are plentiful! I highly recommend you swing by Audio Video Synergy for any of your home theater needs!

Robert Flora

Best audio people so far in USA! Chris is an awesome guy and puts enormous efforts in providing the best audio solution for you. I agree with all the other reviews here. You have the luxury to try out a vast selection of audio equipment which is impossible to achieve elsewhere even if a place happens to have the equipment, I am sure it won’t be backed up by honest people like at this place.
