About Us

We Are Obsessed With Home Theaters

Since 1996, AV Science has lived and breathed all things home theater. We are a custom audio/video retailer serving both residential and commercial clients. Our team of experts is not only dedicated to helping clients create the perfect home theater, but they are also true home theater enthusiasts. Our greatest joy comes from unveiling a client’s new system and showing them how it works.

Dedicated Customer Service

We walk with our clients throughout the process, providing guidance and peace of mind along the way. And our dedicated customer service doesn’t end after the sale. Our client relationships continue with unwavering service and support.   

We love our clients

We love everything A/V. Whether working with a family of five or a business owner with five restaurants, we embrace the challenge of providing the right solutions for our clients’ unique situations. Better yet, we always suggest the products that best meet the needs of the client – not necessarily the most expensive or extensive equipment.
