One thing that’s really rewarding for us is seeing our products in our customer’s homes. Home theater systems can bring so much joy to our ardent fans.
For many of them, their surround sound system is a major point of pride. I’m sure many of us have experienced talking to a friend, trying to explain why this particular thing is so awesome.
Or we have to convince our significant other why these massive towers carefully placed in the living room will make “staying in” for a date night so much better.
Sometimes they get it… other times we get relegated to the basement man cave to fiddle around with our speakers. But often… when they hear it… they get it.
Home audio is one of those hobbies that many people seem to inherit from their dads. Many of us have fond memories of listening to Dad’s HiFi Stereo. Us select few grew up experiencing great music and movie audio throughout our childhoods.
A recent customer of ours, Mike, shared his newly upgraded home theater system with us. Like many so many of us he got the home theater bug from his parents. We reached out to Mike with a few questions about his journey in building his new home theater.
