Audio Visual Equipment Dry Hire

If you need to dry hire audio visual equipment for a conference, meeting or other event, chances are we have what you need.


Reliable and budget-friendly AV hire

We provide equipment hire packages that are tailored to your exact and more often than not, very specific needs: from PA system hire to screens, projectors, stages, sets, control equipment and lecterns.

And if you’re looking for AV hire in London, we’ll deliver, install and collect the equipment too.


PA systems

The sound systems we stock are among the best in the world. Whether you need a PA system for a concert, festival, conference or smaller, intimate event, with a range that includes Nexo, Turbosound and Element 5, we can supply you with equipment suitable for a small gathering of 5 to a major stadium-hosted event.

So if you are having a party of your life or delivering a pitch to change your life, you can trust that we have the equipment to deliver your message, crystal clear.


Portable & Outdoor PA Systems

If you need a PA system that can travel and is capable of dealing with the demands of outdoor events, we have equipment that will rise to the occasion. Perception Live frequently delivers the sound for marquee events and in addition to stocking equipment that is up to the task, we also have a lot of handy tips.



Whether you need radio, wired or lectern mics, we have a wide range of Sennheiser wireless radio systems and a lot of stock of the EW300 range. Our wireless mics are discrete and light and a great option for MCs and hosts.


Speakers, amplifiers and monitors

The speakers, monitors and amps we have for hire can be combined and tailored to your precise event requirement to produce sound that is a large or discreet as you require it to be.


Mixing desks

We have both digital and analogue mixing desks for hire. What you choose will depend entirely on your event. Give us a ring and we’ll be happy to make suggestions.

The Perception Live team of audio technicians prefers Allen & Heath, Soundcraft and Yamaha, but the precise console will be determined by the event.

For conferences we usually use the analogue Allen & Heath. If you are after warm vocals, Yamaha and Soundcraft work well.

For band sound our audio technicians usually go for Soundcraft or Yamaha’s digital ranges including the SI compact, VI series and Yamaha’s old faithful LS9.

To bring it all together we have a number of digital lighting desks and for overall event illumination we also stock LED lights and uplighters and a number of party light options.
