The Sound Room 2016 Holiday Gift Guide, Part 1

The Sound Room 2016 Holiday Gift Guide, Part 1

At The Sound Room, we have a team of very passionate employees who not only sell the products we sell, but also love them and use them at their homes. Each year, we reach out to our sales team and ask them what items they would love unwrap this holiday season. You should see the smiles on their faces as they think through the items and what they’d like to add to their audiophile collection. It’s pretty hard to get each person to narrow it down to just ONE item, but we managed! If you’re looking for the perfect gift, look no further. We have combed through our stock and pulled together the best items to gift this year. You’ll make someone (maybe yourself) very, very happy with these holiday gifts. And now, without any further ado, here is The Sound Room’s 2016 Holiday Gift Guide! Jim Kuhlmeyer: Rotel RA 1592 This 200 watt per channel integrated amplifier is a wonderful new product we’re carrying at The Sound Room that I would LOVE to receive as a gift this year. It’s one of the best sounding integrated amps. It’s unique because of the 200 watts. Most amplifiers only have 1/2 that amount of wattage. The Rotel RA 1592 can drive virtually any speaker, sounds great and is super powerful. If you want to buy me or a gift (or any music lover in your life) look no further than the Rotel RA 1592. Rachael Crowell: C4 Lighting Control for Home When you have kids, you are bound to get up in the middle of the night. Trust me, this...

The Sound Room Named Paradigm’s Dealer of the Year

The Sound Room Named Paradigm’s Dealer of the Year

We always have a great time at CEDIA getting a sneak peek at the latest and greatest releases from some of our favorite brands, but this year was extra special for us. We were named Paradigm’s and Anthem’s Dealer of the Year! Paradigm and Anthem have hundreds of dealers with worldwide distribution, so this is truly an honor to be named their one and only Dealer of the Year. We are also the first dealer to ever receive the award twice, let alone in consecutive years! Here are a few words from Keith Dowd, the Director of North American Sales for Paradigm & Anthem on what they look for when choosing their Dealer of the year. “While sales performance is an important element, it’s a starting point and not the only consideration. We narrow down our list of contenders and then grade them on a number of other criteria related to the experience they provide their customers. Much of that is related to their company culture. Are they there to sell or to serve? Are they invested in long term relationships and helping their clients or just after the quick sale? Is after the sale support as important as making the initial sale? Are they interested in cultivating and growing their local market and are they a positive presence in their community? At Paradigm & Anthem, these are the things we value- so we want to recognize those dealers who share our values.” We have an immense amount of respect for the Paradigm and Anthem teams and we are honestly huge fans of their products. We are thrilled to...

Make-A-Wish: Trevor’s Dream Game Room!

Make-A-Wish: Trevor’s Dream Game Room!

A few months ago, The Sound Room was approached by Make-A-Wish to help create a dream game room for Trevor. Trevor was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis as a baby. His family had little knowledge about the disease, and as a family, they have been doing everything they can to learn, understand and deal with the disease. Since a young age, Trevor has been hospitalized multiple times due to complications from the disease. He also has to complete 2 hours of breathing treatments each day just to stay healthy. Trevor doesn’t let any of this get in his way of being a young, active boy. He makes time for what he loves, including playing sports and spending time with friends. Trevor’s says that even thought he has this disease, he should be treated the same way as everyone else. He is a brave kid who isn’t going to let anyone, or anything, get him down. It was Trevor’s wish to have a game room in his basement to relax and hang out with his friends. Make-A-Wish teamed up with The Sound Room to help create the ultimate personalized game room, just in time for Trevor’s 16th birthday! It was a race around the clock to get this project completed in time, but seeing the smile on Trevor’s face made it worth it. Trevor, his little sister Macy and his friends now have a complete gaming experience right in their home, with booming sound from the Sony HTXT1 Soundbar, and they can easily control all the electronics in the basement with a URC MX-780 Universal Remote Control. Trevor is a huge...
