I co-founded AUDIOVISIONS in 1989, during the infancy of the residential systems installation industry, and I am incredibly fortunate to still be leading the company more than 30 years later. AUDIOVISIONS has grown to become the largest luxury technology integration firm in California. With Southern California locations in Orange County, Los Angeles and Palm Desert, and a Northern California location covering the North Bay, San Francisco and Silicon Valley, we are never far away. Our nearly 100 talented and trained employees assure sufficient resources to effectively and efficiently handle your project.
While I am proud of our steady growth, it’s not the size of our company or our growth that drives me. What drives me is building the best possible culture, environment and structure for our talented team to thrive and grow. Why? Because I believe happy, motivated employees generate delighted clients. And that is why we exist in the first place: We believe everyone deserves a better technology experience.
Our Company’s three Core Values and Three Team Player Virtues inform how we hire, strategize, perform and reward. These are not aspirational values that we hope to achieve, or abide by only when convenient; these values form the nucleus of our culture.

So, while we have the resources of a large firm, we maintain the culture, personal attention and service of a small boutique. This combination of resources and individualized attention allows us to attend to your every question and need. Our ability to solve problems and generate ideas is facilitated by a team structure and culture that encourages a free flow of ideas from any team member, regardless of title or experience. And, our engineering-centric approach allows us to transform your vision into reality - without compromise. We look forward to serving you!
Since his college days, Kris Peterson (KP) was destined for the AV industry. It all began as a part-time job, while studying architecture and mechanical engineering at Seattle Central College working weekends for a small mom and pop retailer, known then as Magnolia Hi Fi. That turned in to a 30-year run, helping to scale into 400+ of the Best Buy stores under the brands Magnolia Home Theater & Magnolia Design Center.
