Evergreen Mortuary- Tucson, Arizona


(An actual email received from the Manager)

Chris and Rob,

We have been operating the new audio/video system that you and Rob installed a few weeks ago in Evergreen Mortuary and couldn’t be more pleased with the results. When we started this project I asked that it be up to date, simple, easy to use, and just as you promised, it is. You and Rob are very professional and worked seamlessly on the project without any interference to the families we served and we hardly knew you were in the building working. Even after the day ended you cleaned up, removed any trash and were extremely courteous to all of our staff. To have the ability to have different audio and video capabilities simultaneously in our chapel, vitiation rooms, lobby and viewing rooms is terrific. We made a few changes from the original plan and you were able to make the changes without any hesitation. Even our most technically challenged staff members are comfortable with operating the new system. This project was well worth the money spent, which was very reasonable for the new equipment, your labor and expertise. I also wanted to thank you both for providing a lesson to everyone on how to use the components and making sure everyone was comfortable with the system, not to mention leaving your contact information and offering for anyone to call with questions concerning the system, your patience were appreciated.

I would highly recommend your company to anyone who may be interested in your services. Feel free to have them call me if they have any doubts or would simply like to discuss the system you have installed for Evergreen.

Sincerely,

Peter J. Callaghan

Buma Funeral Home - Milford, Uxbridge and Whitensville Massachusetts

"Advanced Audio Systems has its act together! The team took a simple inquiry at a national convention and turned it into a great experience. Advanced Audio Systems assessed our needs to give us video recording, distribution and web capabilities in three locations and revamped the present sound systems. The planning involved, timing, equipment needs, logistics, and follow up was flawless. “Your word is your bond” is how this company operates and it’s refreshing to receive the same treatment we give our families who call upon us. Chris and Rob have surpassed our expectations and we are extremely pleased."

Showalter Blackwell Long Funeral Home - Liberty & Connersville, Indiana

"Advanced Audio Systems has been working on our sound and AV systems at our three locations for over 10 years now and we have always been completely satisfied with their work. Advanced Audio Systems is a company that will think through a problem completely, seek out the customers input and come up with a satisfactory solution. We would highly recommend Advanced Audio for all your electronic needs."

"Advanced Audio Systems came to Arizona and updated our (audio and video) equipment and has been working great ever since."

Rosenacker Funeral Home - Blue Ash & White Oak, Ohio

"Advanced Audio Systems completely revamped our existing music systems at both of our locations. Even though one of our systems was only a few years old, they were able to upgrade it and make it much more user friendly. At our other location, they installed a state of the art music and video system. The whole staff of Advanced Audio Systems was great to work with and they were able to work around our busy schedule!"

Barnett-Strother Funeral Home - Madisonville, Kentucky

"Wow what a change. We went from a system that only two people could run on a good day to one so simple anyone can learn to use it in five minutes."

Brickman Brothers Funeral Home - WIlloughby, Ohio

Chris and Rob were great, pleasure to work with. We listened to their seminar about a two months ago and decided to upgrade. We upgraded to video while they were installing. They brought extra equipment and had some shipped next day, very convenient. We already used to oversee service and add music without being in the room. It went very well. Looking forward to recording service and using music. And as they said it is so so much easier to use. Would recommend to any size funeral home.

Sunset View Cemetery Association- El Cerrito California

Earlier this year Advanced Audio Systems revamped and added to our A/V system. After the installation they spent the time necessary to train our staff and made a lot of technology fairly easy to understand. Over the past six months Chris has been available to answer our questions and has spent an enormous amount of time with us, fine tuning our system, even though it was not his responsibility to do so. When we had issues with our internet service provider and software company Chris handled these for us even though it was not his responsibility to do so. I would highly recommend Advanced Audio Systems for your A/V needs.

We have engaged Advanced Audio in a number of site installs and updates.  They always complete their work on time, on budget and with quality.  Even when they ran into unexpected issues they were able to make the necessary changes to get the project completed.  We will continue to use Advanced Audio for a number of projects.

Moser Funeral Home - Warrenton, Virginia

Our company needed updating our audio system and creation of a video system. I met Chris Runnels at an NFDA convention.  He came to our funeral home, made an assessment of our building and our needs.  He came back with a proposal for a system that is easy to operate and serves our funeral home very well.  We have needed very little support since the installation, but when we do, he quickly contacts and supports us to take care of any issues.  I would highly recommend him and his company.

I ran across Advanced Audio at the NFDA nation convention and expo.  I was impressed by the simple end user experience and the cutting edge technology the system offered.  Chris and his team take care of everything from concept to completion.  They have been timely, efficient and very conscious of working with our locations changing schedules. Many of our directors were concerned about upgrading and the potential challenges of a complex system and errors that they could potentially make.  Now that the systems are in place our staff is thrilled with how easy the system is to operate.   Our staff loves Advanced Audio’s simple system, allowing us to offer superior technology options to the communities we serve.  We have had nothing but great feedback and compliments from the families we serve and many visitors.  I would highly recommend Chris and his team.

Anderson-McQueen Funeral Homes - 7 locations in the Tampa Florida Area

We had used local providers for our audio needs in the past with below par results.  We also used webcast companies that wanted long and expensive contracts.  FuneralOne, our website designer, recommended Chris and his team at Advanced Audio.  I could tell from our first telephone conversation that this was not your typical audio-visual company.  Chris and his team are by far experts who really care about their customers’ satisfaction and delivering great results that are very user friendly for staff.  Chris and his team are professional, proficient and best of all…affordable.  Since using Chris for our Anderson-McQueen locations, we have had him back again to re-do all seven of our funeral home locations.  Advanced Audio Systems is by far the best value for the money spent.  Don’t delay…call Chris today!  You’ll be glad you did.”

Rainey-Mathis Funeral Home - 2 locations in Dexter, Missouri

Chris updated our funeral home sound system five years ago. The existing system hadn't been touched in forty years. For many years we thought this wasn't possible. He worked around our schedule, and was the lowest bidder out of four bids. After five years we have had zero problems and would recommend him to anyone.

Van Orsdel Funeral Home - 3 locations in Miami Florida

Very Professional.  They installed a state of the art audio visual system in all three of our locations.  The systems have brought a lot of value families as they are able to bring their own laptops, iPods, DVDs etc to play in honor of their loved one.  The systems are also user friendly so that our funeral staff can use them with ease.  Having this kind of technology is essential in today's world and really helps the families create a meaningful service for their loved one.  I would recommend Advanced Audio Systems to all funeral homes looking to install or improve their audio visual systems.

Walbert Funeral Home - Fleetwood, Pennsylvania


When we set out on my ambitious project to build a brand new state of the art funeral home, one of the items that we knew would be very important was our ability to have an audio / visual system that would be just as high quality as the facility we were building.

We proceeded to venture out to the local area vendors that do audio / visual systems and found folks that fit mainly two categories, good quality but way overpriced for a funeral home budget or great price but lacking in what we needed.  Then we found you.  We say you because YOU truly are what we got when we decided to go with Advanced Audio Systems.  You take such a personal approach and as the owner are hands on in each and every aspect of the project from initial conversation to follow-up.

To say the system is more than what we had hoped for doesn’t quite seem enough.  The best part of the entire experience, beside the fact that your pricing was extremely reasonable and on budget, was the fact that you were and have continued to be there for anything we have needed, well after the normal expected warranty period.  We know that no matter what happens with our system, we can call or text you and within minutes, we will have the answers we need to ensure our families are being served like they deserve.

Thank you so much, Chris, for all you have done for us.  You did so at a period of time where your health threw you curve balls, yet you were and continue to be there for us.
 
Kind Regards,
