Our groundbreaking equipment and breathtaking AV designs can be found all Around central texas in homes, restaurants, and businesses .
When we design our systems for our clients, we take our project development cue from product industry leaders and Up scale designers. the highest compliment we can receive is having our projects, whether private residences or commercial, operate in harmony with their surroundings and perform at their highest level.
We started out as a simple installation company back in 1996. AustinAudio was pretty much at "Ground Zero" of the whole Smart House movement. Installs were pretty cut and dry, we ran stereo cable and coax and moved on. With no equipment talking to a computer systems as of yet, systems were pretty simple in design as well and easy to operate. We didn't have iTunes, small cell phones, Netflix's, Facebook, streaming video or texting. What we did have was good old HI-FI, Turntables, CD's, Headphones and a less than perfect VHS and 480i video signal to play with.
But, we enjoyed our AV gear as much as we do today. I find that having a simple high-quality system always wins out over the overly complex system any day. So, with todays high-end interfaces, Streaming video, HD content changing yearly and networked systems constantly needing updating, it can get bit frustrating at times for our clients. That's why you want a seasoned technical staff in your corner.
We also "listen" to what our client's needs and wants are. We take pride in the knowledge of todays products and by keeping up with trends and product launches to keep us current. We can develop systems that our clients will enjoy for many years to come worry free.
We don't over design our system just because the client can afford more. A good design will grow with that client gracefully and allow upgrading when needed. So, our goal is to develop the best value in our designs with that in mind. Having those skills and working hard for our current and new client has allowed us to stay in the game after 19 years.
Above, our new store and meeting area where we show off our unique AV products, talk about your system details, and give hands on demonstrations.
Originally wanting to major in design, Quint wanted to surround himself and his work space with a more progressive environment which his clients could appreciate in person. Something we see less and less of every year. "Quint" We didn't want a big box store in any way. I grew up with small mom and pop shops that took care of you year to year,
The idea was a personal experience with attention to you, not the guy in phone accessories wondering over to start up a ''chat". Like where do I run, really!
The owner and lead designer at Austin Audio Quint Berry. Who also goes by "QB, "The "Bull Dog", "The Stereo Guy", Quint'n or Clint? Is always up for a challenge. And he's ok with names 8). Quint Is still working hard to create powerful & beautiful AV systems that are truly fun and timeless in design.
Quint's path to becoming an AV system designer was a perfect storm, as he puts it. He found his love for music leading him to performance equipment. His eye for design and architecture allowed him to work around beautiful structures and homes. With his background in the arts and years working in the hotel industry, he could appreciate beautiful surrounding and excellent client interaction. "I get to help design our clients daily activities and bring some fun into their homes every day". "How cool is that"!
