Reference Audio Video & Security

P: (319) 354-7700





This is the second time I have used this company for AV projects. Most recently, Reference Audio’s security installation exceeded my expectations from the beginning to the end of the project. The entire team was both professional and knowledgeable. I would absolutely contact Reference for any future projects. Give Matt a call at the Coralville store, he and the team will complete the job skillfully in a reasonable amount of time.

Reference recently installed a new wireless internet system in our house to replace a mesh system that I had installed. The actual components are high quality. The salesperson did a great job assessing our needs and providing alternative solutions. Scheduling was easy and the installer was precise, polite, knowledgeable and careful to maintain social distance while he was in our house. He also wore a mask whenever interacting with us. I am very satisfied with the work. I decided to use Reference because of past experience with the company which was excellent.

Excellent service and thoughtful planning. Competent crew who coordinated the installation with the electrician and South Slope.TVs aren't the same simple box you could unpack, plug in, and watch Gilligan's Island. Very Glad to have a company like Reference to do the technical work. RBW

I recently needed a new tuner and receiver for my home audio system & contacted Reference Audio in Coralville for advice. Devin Guerrero came to my home to evaluate my situation and assess my needs. He considered as well the price range that I was considering. He promptly provided suggestions that met my needs and fit my budget. The technician, Giovanni (but whose family name I missed), came promptly as scheduled and did an excellent job. He verified the nature of the problem with my current set-up and then installed the new system. He checked its operation as tuner, CD player and turntable before considering his work done. He answered all of my questions, thoroughly and patiently. He removed my old equipment and left the living room with no signs of any work or mess; a terrific job. The system sounds great. In summary, a terrific experience from start to finish.



We have purchased a Marantz receiver, a turntable, a device to digitally record our records, and a wireless speaker. All were installed by Reference staff, and all work very very well. We are fortunate to have a company like this and the staff to do quality work! I really appreciate their expertise with all things digital. Well worth the money and costs! It feels good to be able to purchase quality electronics, rather than succumbing to the big box stores. Will I buy more from them? Absolutely
