Smart Audio was introduced to us by an owner family member. Simon Kalantaridis honesty was highly recommended to the owners. When we receive the first quotation from Smart Audio we notice that it was very detailed comparing with others. Distance was one of our biggest concern. They were based 600km away. The project was very demanding with high standards and quality, aimed to meet the owner’s more personal wishes and the demands of the international high end charterers. M/Y O’PARI3 turns out to be a sporting boat, agile and attractive with significant design solutions and accurate study of details. During the designing of the system we discover that their technical knowledge was very high. They help us design and build one of the most high end and integrated yacht but at the same time easy to use by people with no technology experience. The response time to our request was immediate, and they always had the solution there for us. Their help was boundless. Even the distance they were always there for us and always on time. It was a great experience working with Smart Audio team.
We are Project Managers and Chartered Quantity Surveyors overseeing the entire construction process as Project Managers and dealing with the cost control and contractual matters as Chartered Quantity Surveyors. We are appointed mainly on the highest quality residential projects for owner occupiers in the UK and overseas. Smart Audio were appointed by our clients for the design supply and installation of the complete Audio Visual installation to our clients new build home in Greece. The project was for a discerning client with very high expectations and demands in terms of quality, design advice, products and installation. We are pleased to advise as far as we are able that the service Smart Audio provided achieved our clients expectations and set standards that we look to replicate on future projects. It was a pleasure to work with them. We would have no hesitation in recommending Smart Audio for AV installations on similar projects.
Simon Kalantaridis, the chief AV consultant system designer of SmartAudio™ company, came to me highly recommended by many civil engineers and architects in Thessaloniki, Greece. I appointed him with the design, consultancy, supply, istallation and integration of complete AV, climate control and security systems at my family’s main residence in my home-country. The whole project was executed by local contractors. I have worked with Simon Kalantaridis and his team both in person and from a distance. The coordination was at all times exemplary and extremely professional. His suggestions were made only after thorough investigation; a value-for-money element was always incorporated into them, adding to quality of the project. Deadlines were always kept. All the demands (no matter how „irrational“ or obssesive-compulsive they were) were fullfilled fast, to complete satisfaction and always (but always) with a great attitude and a sincere smile. The final outcome clearly exceeded all expectations (the were many), up to a point that I try to find a way for Simon to appoint him with the automation of my main residence here in North Carolina. I can only recommend Simon Kalantaridis and SmartAudio™ company for any future work without any reservations.
We have worked with Simos Kalantaridis and his team on a high end project in Greece. The scope of the work was in consultancy, planning, execution and support of a complex build designed in Switzerland and executed by local contractors. They were responsible for the intergration and design of numerous electrical systems including security, sound, air conditioning, lighting etc. The coordination with us was at all times exemplary, constructive and conducted in a utmost professional manner. Deadlines were always kept and the costing as well as the cost controlling were of the highest quality. They were forthcoming with invaluable suggestions that were well thought through and added to the quality of the project as a whole.
