I personally, along with the foundation I founded, have been customers of Sound Support for the past several years. We have never been disappointed with their work. Not only do they show up on time for appointments, they are also very reliable and professional. Any problems we have experienced have always been corrected in a timely manner. I have also found their pricing to be competitive. I would definitely recommend Sound Support.
