His vision was to bring the best of music and the growing video field, to York Region residents.   Over the years Liptons has become so much more than he ever thought possible.

Kind Words From Our Customers

  • Quality pays off!
    Liptons Audio Video Unlimited gives you great service and a great product. They installed an entire sound system for us about a year ago, but they recently came and did a one year checkup for us. We had a couple of problems with our integrated sound system, so we asked them to come and look at that and also install an Apple TV. So it was an application and correction, and everything turned out great! With Liptons you get what you pay for. It is what would be considered an expensive system, but it's not like you're buying something out of a boom box at a generic electronics shop. You're buying high quality product with good standards and really good service.

  • Excellent products and excellent know how service.
    I was advised to go and check out Liptons by a friend and I wasn't disappointed. The products that Ryan recommended were exactly what I wanted for my home a/v system. Liptons definitely has the products and expertise that will keep me coming back. Although I live 2 1/2 hrs. away it is definitely worth it.

  • Great Service
    After having water damage I was left trying to find equal or better quality Audio and Video to fit a very specific location and dimensions. I searched everywhere, 2001 Audi Video, BestBuy, Future shop, etc. and everywhere I went I kept getting so so quality products that didn't meet my needs, not to mention Sales people that were not really interested in working with me and my challenges. I went to Lipton's and I meet Ryan. Ryan was amazing!!!! He listened, he worked with him, his patients was amazing and in the end he solved my Audio challenges. I now have an amazing system that meets all my needs. Thank you Ryan and Lipton's for your support, great service and great products.

  • Had an excellent experience with Liptons A/V. New to the area I searched google for home theatre companies to do home theatre installations in two areas of my house , using some old equipment from my old setup in one of the rooms. Found Liptons and walked in. Lindsay patiently listened to my requirements at the shop and came up with a plan . He paid attention and followed thru accurately. He assigned Dan to do a site visit to get further details and scope out the job. Dan was a nice guy who exuded competence and honesty....he felt reasonably confident he could do all the wiring for speakers etc without any destruction of walls etc, or leaving bare wires showing. Both Lindsay and Dan gave good recommendations as to the various hardware items that would be best for my situation. Install day was a breeze. Dan found the job easier than expected ( saving me $ ) and everything went off without a hitch...everything installed well and looked great...two lovely media areas! Dan is a wiring " guru"....using.... magic ? Speakers and components appeared with wires led invisibly. Ask for Dan ! Installation was meticulous without a spec of dust left behind. Follow up visit was very helpful to learn about all the new gizmos. Overall, a totally pleasant transaction with capable, honest reliable people...10/10 !

  • Love Lipton's Electronics!!

    We have dealt with Lindsay and his team for many years and would not think of going anywhere else. They work to understand what you want to do and recommend the right products. Dan and Sasha are an incredible installation team. Great guys. Don't shop anywhere else!

  • I couldn't be happier.
    Liptons Audio Video Unlimited is wonderful! The owner, Mr. Lipton, was very patient with explaining the options available to me. They have a wide variety of music system installations. They weren't in any hurry to close or sell me anything. With the extensive overview of options, it was very easy to make a decision.
