”When we set out to do what can’t be done, Advanced Audio and Lighting is the company that makes it possible.”

– Marty Lynch, Professor, Theater Department, Eureka College

“With some companies you get sales staff that make promises and a tech staff that tries to comply. With Advanced Audio you get sales and tech staff that have a clear concept of what it will take from start to finish. They have the dedication to get the job done right. It’s a true pleasure to deal with a company that has the knowledge and experience to back up what they are selling.”

– James Gatlin, Systems Integration Specialist, CompuCom Systems

“For several years now, Advanced Audio has been our first choice to serve our audio and visual needs. They are by far the best company we have worked with because of their knowledge, insight, attention to detail, and personal touch. By choosing Advanced Audio, you receive superior customer service, hands-on training and assistance, and dedicated troubleshooting support.”

– Chuck Tate, Lead Pastor, Rock Church

“The guys at Advanced Audio were always professional and fun to work with. They were able to anticipate our needs and always went above and beyond. Whatever the situation was, sound and lighting for an outdoor concert to audio-visual troubleshooting in The Gateway Building, these guys were always exceeding expectations.”

– Brittany Moldenhauer, former Supervisor of River Front Events, Peoria Park District

“I’ve been involved with church sound since the 70s, and have worked with several audio techs in that time. Ryan Winstead has been very helpful to us at Trinity Church in Morton. He helped us resolve our sound issues with service and equipment to fit our needs and budget with fair, consistent pricing. I would highly recommend Advanced Audio to anyone needing help with their sound. Price is always a consideration, but in this world of internet purchasing from nameless, faceless web addresses, service after the sale is what separates Advanced Audio from everyone else.”

– Phil Migit, Audio Tech, Trinity Church

“Project Description: John 15:8 – 'This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.' The project consisted of a complete replacement of the church's audio and media systems and a major overhaul of the church auditorium lighting system. The construction project included the complete gutting of the original worship space and its transformation into a new and technologically advanced youth worship space, as well as the addition of a 1,300 seat balcony space in the church's main auditorium. Advanced Audio and Lighting of Peoria, Illinois, was selected as the AVL consultant and contractor for the project. As the project consultant, Advanced Audio and Lighting helped the church's Creative Arts Technical and Media Teams identify what the final and ultimate deliverables and expectations were to be and how to meet this project's needs.”

– Rick Jeremiah, Creative Arts Ministry Technical Director, Northwoods Community Church

“In the past, we had dealt with several local and national AVL design companies. All our experiences were not satisfactory. For this project, our directive was “Go local, so we can look them in the eye, and get what we need.” That’s how we started with Advanced Audio & Lighting Systems. As the design process commenced, we really began to see the depth of Advanced Audio’s Technical Staff. They covered all the details and brought really great ideas to the table. They had it from top to bottom, from the major systems to the tiny details that come with a project of this size. Wiring, networking, system integration, lighting, every possible detail was thoroughly thought through. This was a massive project, basically a $3 million complete rebuild from the ground up of our video, audio, and lighting systems. Advanced provided all the skills and trades necessary from their local shop. Advanced has expertise in audio design, lighting design, video design, and system integration. They processed and built an enormous amount of equipment, and handling a vast shipping schedule. And it was all top of the line products. Avid Venue, Nexo, ETC Prodigy lifts a complete Ross video system. We got the installation that we had tried for years to get from other vendors. Advanced dealt with issues as they arose and made sure we were “in the loop” at all times. Steve Nelson’s mantra was “We want you to be happy.” We now have the relationship we were always looking for with a local AVL design firm. We have a world-class facility with a local company standing by to meet our future needs.”

– Dave Marks, Video Content Creator, Northwoods Community Church
