About Us

Mark Anderson, owner, has been a leader in consumer electronics in Southern California for the past 20 years, specializing in home audio and video in the late '90s with the opening of his current retail location. Anderson brings a special blend of expertise to the audio arena, with a background that includes 20-plus years in the construction industry. Among his earliest projects, in fact, was to build the country's first "twin" movie theatre. With his in-depth knowledge of all facets of the audio installation process, as well as his understanding of the current retail market, Anderson is an invaluable source for jobs as simple as a dedicated home theatre to more complex, multi-room systems for both residential homes and businesses.

Mark Valade, operations manager, manages the day-to-day operations and overseeing an inventory that boasts many of the finest audio products in the industry. With more than 30 years of experience in home audio, Valade's ongoing passion for his hobby-turned-profession offers the consumer rare insights into an ever-changing market. He simplifies not only the buying, but also the selling process in that he is one of the few retailers to also offer a consignment program. If you want the best return on your used gear, Mark is the person to go to. From sales, to design, and all the way to setup, Mr. Valade often meets and exceed expectations.

This knowledge allows him a special insight into discussing products here at our retail store as well. His patience and ability to troubleshoot problems is a one of a kind skill.
