Auton Lifts At Fred's Sound Of Music Audio Video Inc.

Founded in 1955, Auton Motorized Systems is the world's first manufacturer of television lifts and to this day, remains the largest manufacturer of its kind.

Since its inception, Auton has been providing motorized lift systems for architects, designers, and fine furniture makers, opening up a whole new array of design options! Auton lift systems are installed throughout the world in fine homes, offices, hotels, yachts and aircraft, just to name a few examples. Most popular for its use in motorized furniture, other uses include: ceiling pop-down televisions and projectors; motorized screens; pop-up computers; speaker lifts; pop-up liquor cabinets; variable height coffee tables; pop-up displays and collections; and lift panels. In the kitchen, Auton has motorized pop-up spice racks, oven hoods and a "SmartWaiter," which brings up the groceries from the downstairs garage.

Auton uses a remote controlled, rack and pinion system which, unlike the old fashioned "scissor-type" lifts, eliminates wobble and can easily lift uneven loads. These systems are available in many standard sizes, but can easily be customized to your exact specifications. And, to assure the quality of our systems, all of our products are made in the U.S. and backed by a one year limited warranty.  Great for stereo and home Theater components and systems
