As we approach the end of a most unusual year, we hope that you and your families and friends have all remained well. It’s been a very challenging time for all of us, including our manufacturers. It’s certainly been a fine time to let our music systems transport us to other places.

Holiday Hours

We continue to be open by appointment. This allows us to give you dedicated attention for discussion and component demonstration focused on your needs, in the absence of other clients. We’re also still happy to offer curbside pickup or shipping on many of our products.

During the holiday season we will be closed December 25th and 26th, and January 1st.

We wish you and all of your family and friends a Merry Christmas and very Happy New Year!
