Where to rent a PA system for an event?

microphone closeupNate emails:

I was wondering if you could help me out with some suggestions on where to rent speakers and a PA system for an upcoming wedding. I basically need a PA system that will hook up to an ipod to play music at a wedding reception. I was told that Drome Sound in Schenectady would be a good start, but I'd like some other options.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

This is pretty straightforward, so if you have suggestion, please share. And if you can think of some sort of alternative that might help out Nate, we'd love to hear about that, too.

I've had good experiences with Technical Video in Latham: http://technical-video.com/av-rentals/audio-equipment-sound-rentals.

I rented a PA for my wedding reception earlier this year from What's Happenin' Productions in Guilderland http://www.whpvideo.com/ They let me pick it up two days ahead of the event, it was super easy to set up, and they included an additional amplifier and microphone just in case anything went wrong the day of the event. They were very accommodating. The whole rental cost me $135. If you want a wireless mic it's an additional $25 bucks or so.
