The Speaker and Stereo Store operates by appointment. I demonstrate in a relaxed home setting. My brands are specifically selected for their high performance-to-price ratio, offering the best values in audio.

I am able to fill requests for many brands not listed here. If you have your heart set on a product from a brand not listed here feel free to check with me on its availablity. Examples of brands available to me are Acoustic Zen, Furman, NAD, and Atlantic Technology.
