Our clients and industry partners have offered their share of kind words:
“A complicated project done by the AVD professionals turned out remarkably well. Our home functions very well and is a pleasure to live in, thanks to their expertise,” owners of Salt Marsh Way, Cape Cod.
“Audio Video Design is a quality company to work with. They are professional, efficient with a technically knowledgeable team. Their attention to detail and good communication makes easy collaboration and successful projects. I highly recommend them. Highly.” Vani Sayeed, Principal, Vani Sayeed Studios (Interior Design)
“I think customers want to deal with people that they can trust, people that are going to make good recommendations on equipment, and people who know how to install and service that equipment after the fact. Brad Smith’s people at Audio Video Design are simply outstanding. They are some of the best technical people I’ve dealt with. I found the attention that we got very focused, very timely. They worked in cadence with the rest of the construction of our home and did a magnificent job over what was essentially a two-and-a-half year project. And they stuck with it every day. We’re very pleased with the outcome…we’re looking forward to a long relationship as we add additional equipment and functionality to our system.” Bob Stearns, homeowner (Tastefully Discreet project), Needham, MA
A bonus for the AVD team has been that our clients have also become our friends over the years. We are proud to have been a member of the home technology industry for 44 years and look forward to many more.
