Astounded for Education

Astounded for Education

Providing great value pro audio, multimedia and lighting solutions to the education sector is an Astounded speciality. With over a decade of experience in supplying PA systems, stage equipment and lighting to schools, universities and educational institutions – we understand your needs and priorities and strive to meet and exceed those in every way we can.

As an ethical and honest supplier, we always adhere to the following principles, which we believe set us apart from our competitors:

Best Value New

Price is important, but is not the only measure of value. The results our products deliver are more important than price alone. We strive to source only those products which provide maximum specification and features for a given budget – without ever compromising on quality. Put simply, we know our marketplace, and will always recommend products which offer the highest level of performance for your budget.


Purchase & Payment

We are happy to provide invoice and credit accounts to bona fide educational institutions, and accept official purchase orders from individual organisations, or local authorities. In fact, we may already be on your supplier database – if we are not, we always welcome the opportunity to receive and submit new supplier forms.


Plain Speaking, Expert Advice1

We understand that our customers aren’t all technical experts! We always explain things in a way that is understandable and free from technical jargon. When you speak with one of our experts, they will determine your needs by asking a simple series of questions to assess your priorities. If your needs are simple, we may recommend an ‘off-the-peg’, preconfigured system or package. If your requirements are more specialist, or demand niche features, we will design and propose a bespoke system using exactly the right combination of products to deliver the results you need.


Consistency & Reliability copy

Our scale, experience and relationships with key manufacturers ensure that we are a dependable supply partner. From the moment we give you some advice, right through to the months and years following your purchase. We are there to support your investment whether through simple advice, rapid supply of spares and accessories, or – should the worst happen, a speedy, no-quibble warranty replacement. We source the majority of our products from ISO9001 approved suppliers, ensuring the highest standards of engineering, reliability, and safety.


Social & Environmental Responsibility 1

As a dynamic and future focussed company, we know that success comes through enhancing the creative process of those we serve and through reinvesting our time, expertise, and support in our community. We are also committed to minimising the environmental impact of our operations in any way we can. This is why we support numerous charities and events through sponsorship, donations, and free hire. It’s also why one of our two offices is entirely solar powered, and why we have invested in a cutting edge recycled packaging machine. As mentors of our future generations, we believe you will share these values with us.
