Online vs. Local Home Theater Installation? San Diego Residents Reap Big Benefits With Independent/Local Businesses Says Southwest Audio Visual

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - August 25, 2009) - DVDs, CDs, MP3 players and games can often be found a lot less expensively online than in a store, but when it comes to the home theater where all these things are played, buying online can be a huge mistake, says Southwest Audio Visual (SWAV), a leading designer and installer of home theaters in San Diego.

"When you buy your home theater equipment online through major manufacturers you're taking a huge risk that everything is going to work properly," said Jim Diez, co-founder of SWAV.

"Many manufacturers void the warranty on online sales from non-authorized dealers; if the warranty is still good, it can still be a major problem getting your equipment repaired or replaced. Most of these companies offer little to no customer service, and you have to pay to have your equipment shipped to and from the company."

SWAV specializes in home theater design, home automation and distributed audio visual in San Diego. Unlike online stores or major chains and corporations, SWAV creates personal client-vendor relationships with quick and reliable customer service.

"Often, we have had to fix jobs by other home theater companies that chose products that do not fit the restrictions of the job. This has created a talent of product selection and a dedication to quality product placement at SWAV," said Bill Kauzlarich, co-founder of SWAV.

"Online companies generally offer zero product support or knowledge. If you are lucky enough to get an agent on the phone, they just take orders and know nothing about the product."

"A custom home theater isn't something you want to skimp on or do online," said Diez. "Going with a local home theater installation company will save you a lot of time, money and headaches in the long run."
