About Us | Team Genesis

Team Genesis
Investing significant amount of money in a residential or commercial product or solution requires a trust and a confidence that you will receive exactly what you were promised. Earning that trust and keeping that promise is a part of who we are and why we've been in business for 25 years.

As we celebrate our 25th Anniversary, I believe it's because every team member is committed to achieving just one thing: your satisfaction.

Excellent customer service, knowledgeable advisors. Genesis Audio set up my home theatre and entertainment system and all my devices in 2016 and I've relied on them ever since.

I value high standards and expect the same from the goods and services, I purchase. Let me share with you my experience with Genesis Audio. I was in the market for a high end HiFi system, and I lacked product knowledge, product compatibility, and whether I wanted a two or multi-channel system. I had an idea, and since Genesis Audio is a distributor for so many of these high-end brands, my decision to discuss my goal with them was easy. I met with Don of Genesis Audio, and he assisted me in my decision process. Besides being a great resource, Don helped me clear up that decision that a two-channel system was the better way to go. I purchased the system, and another great service Genesis Audio provides, is the installation. These folks are very professional, courteous, and hold their selves to a very high standard. I kindly, encourage you to give Genesis Audio a call, and a visit. Look at their website and see all of services they provide. It is so good to have a company care about their customer. My experience tells me companies that do just that are here to stay.Sincerely,Michael D.

We have hired Genesis for our A/V systems in 2003, 2008 and 2020. Each time, they have done a wonderful job in helping us pick the right components and in installing these components. During our most recent (Nov. 2020) installation, Kyle Johnson and his staff did a professional and admirable job in picking and installing the A/V components, in patiently explaining the wiring connections and other installation details, and in providing us with detailed user instructions. We would definitely recommend Genesis for A/V system needs.
