(Moraga, CA) Avista did a great job of providing us with top notch audio equipment for a family special event.  They were reasonable and dependable.  They are very easy to do business with.  I would recommend them and use them again.

(San Diego, CA) We rented a bunch of equipment from Avista to do an outdoor karaoke/movie event for a summer camp. The process for extremely easy and the staff was very helpful in explaining all the equipment we had and how to set it up and run it. Checking in and out were quick and easy and the price was very reasonable for everything we got. It couldn't have been easier to run the event with how Avista set us up. I will return to Avista for all my future needs.

(Long Beach, CA) On July 11th, I had an event which Avista who supplied our audio, production screen and projector. When I walked in the room at the InterContinental Hotel, I was so amazed of the clarity and professionalism that Avista offered. A month prior I explained to them what I needed for our event and they spelled everything out in detail. Expedited all my demands to close the deal. This was a match made in heaven, we will use this company for all or future events.  I loved it! Our event was Awesome, thanks to Avista!

(Los Angeles, CA) rented one of their packages for a 75 person, indoor movie screening. The total was just above $200 with taxes. Since I opted to pick up the equipment over having it delivered, I saved a few hundred dollars. When I arrived I met a young lady, who showed me step by step how to assemble and disassemble the equipment. She was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the set up. She even helped me take the equipment to my car!  I returned the equipment Monday and she again helped me carry items in! This entire experience was easy and painless.
