(Torrance, CA) The equipment worked great and the instructions/set up super simple. Appreciated that the staff took the time to walk you through the instructions when you pick up. What a great idea! Made an outdoor movie affordable -- kids (and parents) loved it!!

(Buena Park, CA) As an audio professional, I've used Avista several times for sound rentals in both Los Angeles and in Orange County. Their equipment is top notch and well maintained, unlike a few competitors I've used. Most recently I used them for a backyard movie rental, just for me and some friends. Just like with the pro gear I've rented from them, the whole process was smooth, the equipment was great, and the pickup/return process smooth. When I picked up the gear, I really appreciated the time that Justin spent with me, explaining the entire setup process. I didn't need to use it, but they said they have 24/7 phone support in case I had any questions setting things up. It's just like me to test companies on this type of thing, but given how everything else went in the process, I don't doubt that someone would have been there at 4am if I called and had a question. 5 stars all the way around!

(Sunnyvale, CA) We had a birthday party for my son in our backyard. The equipment was easy to set up (within 30 mins.). Movie has to be started 15 mins. after sunset. Kids and adult loved the idea; luckily the weather was warm for a spring night. Easy to pick and return. Highly recommend this for backyard birthday parties.
