How to Dramatically Reduce Your Church AV Equipment Costs
If you are reading this article, then you are already aware of the importance of AV
equipment in houses of worship.
With new advancements in technology, the way we worship and set up our buildings have changed dramatically, and

Media, explain what you are trying to do and have them guide you towards what type of system would best suite you
for the least amount of money. However, this inquiry is for information only, as you will want to explore a few
different avenues prior to making a purchase.

there are far better deals to be had. Online resources such as avforsale.com and ebay.com offer auctions and
overstock items, many of which sell at big-box retailers for nearly double the price that they can be found for
By doing a few minutes of research online, you can almost always come up with better pricing than you would find
at a store. Just be sure that whoever you buy from online has a clearly spelled out return policy and good customer
