Testimonials

yelp“I went to 3 other companies to get quotes, Kirk was not only the fastest to respond he was also the most thorough. He and his team installed a movie theater in my house using my existing equipment. He leveraged every piece of equipment I had before offering equipment. He also installed a complete Tivo system in my home with 2 Tivo Bolt’s and 5 TV Mini’s. Everything exceeded my expectations, Kirk even spent over 5 hours working an issue with Comcast that was out of his responsibility. He wanted to make sure that we were completely happy before he left…. amazing experience and definitely recommend.”

yelp“Fantastic job. I had wasted away months dealing with other companies and got immediate results with Kirk and his crew. Very professional, knowledgeable, and gets things done quickly. Easy to get a hold of. Makes suggestions when needed but gets what you want done. Even went out of his way to get us a new TV for a great price. Couldn’t be happier. Have already recommended him to a friend. Lastly, the price was right. Quote was great, and with extras, was cheaper than other quotes I had received. This should be the last review you need to read.”

yelp“Great company. I contacted South Shore Audio based on the online reviews I had read about the company. Kirk the owner came out to meet with me this summer. He then walked me through choosing a TV/Audio installation system, always answered my questions, and knew what he was doing. Kirk’s quote onsite was the exact same emailed quote I got following our meeting (you know how that works with some companies). The company’s installation crew was efficient, polite, cleaned up after themselves and just did an amazing job. Even during times after the installation, when I’ve had a few questions about using the system, Kirk has always responded. Kirk is very professional and actually cares about his customers! I highly recommend this company. Excellent work.”

yelp“The response and communication from Kirk was excellent and instant. Our technician Matt turned up exactly on time and was courteous, friendly and efficient. He reprogrammed our universal remote control and fixed our problems to my satisfaction. I’m happy to say I’m now able to watch streaming tv again. I found the quality of service and experience excellent and would definitely recommend this company We were thrilled they serviced the Boston area and I would like to thank Yelp members for their recommendations.”

yelp“Kirk and SSAVI are awesome! All we had to do was send them some pictures, measurements, and model number and they were able to put together a quote! We know nothing about TV mounting and how being in an apartment may influence the process, Kirk took care of everything and even sent us a link for a cabinet he thinks we could use! Literally minimal effort on our part! We were also looking for a soundbar and Kirk was so patient going through all the different options and features with us (we ended up with the sonos soundbar!). Additionally, we changed our minds about where and how many and what brand of TVs we wanted to mount no less than three times. Each time Kirk was super nice and accommodating! The day of the install the crew even came out super early to accommodate our work schedule, made sure to get our input before each install, and cleaned up after themselves! They showed us exactly how to use our equipment before they left. We will never use anybody else for any future work! We love Kirk and SSAVI! THANK YOU GUYS !!”

yelp“Kirk and his team were the ultimate professionals. Kirk came by and came up with a plan for the work, which he turned into a detailed quote/proposal. He was responsive to my many questions and changes. On installation day, he and his guys were right on time, they worked hard all day, and got the job done as well or better than I anticipated. All of the workers were experts and were very friendly. Even a year after the install, when something went wrong with one of the components (a parts problem, not caused by the installation), they picked up the part, fixed it, and returned it to me the following day. Unbelievably good service. Highly recommend.”

angies-list“Kirk was very friendly and helpful. Everything was installed on time, on budget and if any issues arose, he got back to us within 24 hours with the solution. His team was great to work with.”

Amanda   –   Brookline

angies-list“Kirk at SSAVI gave us excellent service. Before selling us anything, he visited our home and checked out the room where we wanted the TV installed, and made very good recommendations considering the existing windows and lighting and size of the living room. His proposal was reasonably priced, and very specific. On installation day, his team was very efficient, and took the time to explain how to use everything. We are very happy with the service SSAVI provided, and the system we have.”

angies-list“Fantastic! The products and services that Kirk and his team supplied were outstanding. He went over everything in a detailed methodical fashion and truly enabled you to walk through and understand what he did and why. This system far surpasses anything that I initially imagined and therefore we will not have to worry about this for many many years in the future. Highly recommended!”

homead“I have had others come look at my entertainment set-up. I have had others offer to put all of my audio and video components on one universal remote. I have had others come and set up my surround sound speakers. All failed and could not give me what Kirk Hobbs at South Shore Audio Video did for me in only 3 hours. He indicated that my wires were a mess, that my speaker wires in some cases completely frayed or undone, that my components were not properly hooked up and he completely straightened it all out. Then he gave me a true universal remote which does more things than I have ever been able to do with 4 remotes! He was great!

Tim   –   Bridgewater

homead“Wonderful! Real professional. I got other quotes which were lower but felt most comfortable with Kirk. He knew what he was talking about and knew he could get the job done. I was concerned because we were having a tv hung over our fireplace but no cable or electric outlets. Other companies told me I would have a large patch job that I would have to repair. After the job was complete we had one small hole that was hardly noticeable. You get what you pay for!”

ssavi-home-logo“Kirk at SSAVI was a pleasure to work with.  He listened to my needs and came up with creative suggestions to put together a terrific system that represented good value for the costs involved.  The installation went smoothly and efficiently due to Kirk’s experience and attention to detail.  I highly recommend SSAVI to anyone looking to install a new system.”

ssavi-home-logo“From good selections of equipment to a clean installation all was nicely done. A first-rate job tailored to my needs and tastes. I gladly recommend every aspect of your service to others.”   

David – Brookline

ssavi-home-logo“I recommend Kirk Hobbs wholeheartedly. His work in my home has included mounting a large flat screen TV over the fireplace in my family room, installing surround sound, programming a universal remote and installing multiple cable and internet connections in an older home. He has also met the gaming needs of my teenage son and preserved my sanity by suggesting and installing a wireless headset for my elderly father who resides in my home. Not only can my father listen to the television while he moves from room to room but I don’t hear it at all. Thanks Kirk!”

Barbara  –   Medfield

ssavi-home-logo“Kirk did a great job installing a complete surround sound system in our basement.  He was prompt, dependable and reasonable.  All the costs were discussed before he started and he accurately estimated the time necessary to finish.  He worked closely with our contractor and made sure that all the wires and cables were in the right places.  He explained clearly how to use the equipment and he was always available by phone to answer follow-up questions.  I would recommend Kirk to anyone looking to have any audio/video work done.”   

Pat and Tony – Weymouth

ssavi-home-logo“I would highly recommend SSAVI to anyone who is looking at getting a high quality, professional system installation. Kirk and his team are all business, they come in , address what work needs to be done and they attack the job. Kirk’s many years of knowledge plays a key role in evaluating the projects needs and controlling the costs of the install based on what needs to get done versus others who are looking to just make money. He cares about his customers and goes the extra mile. I highly recommend SSAVI to anyone who needs AV or home theater assistance, you’ll be very impressed. ”

John   –   Scituate

ssavi-home-logo“My original home theater system was located in the biggest room of the home with cathedral ceilings, and the sound was never quite right. To hear it well, I had to turn the volume up so loud that you could hear it in every room. So I hired Kirk to upgrade the receiver, tune it properly, and upgrade my remote control as well. He did a beautiful job. With some new speakers, it sounds perfect, and you can hear perfectly at lower volumes. Since I had an existing multi-room set up, he also suggested I look into Sonos multi-room zone players. I was not familiar with the technology, but it’s pretty amazing. Each room has its own easy-to-use wireless controller which accesses iTunes from our Mac or iPod, plus Sirius and internet/broadcast radio. It couldn’t be easier to use, and you can hear different audio in each room and even control the volume from the controller. All this technology is fine, but you really need someone to install it properly. Kirk’s that guy. I’d use him again for any job, big or small. He knows what he’s doing, and he understands that quality matters.”
