In fact, our combined experience and expertise in bringing superior-sounding two-channel audio to discriminating customers – with McIntosh on the manufacturing side and ourselves on the sales side – is probably unsurpassed anywhere in the country, perhaps even the world. Today, just as McIntosh continues to expand with many more concepts in luxury home entertainment, we are proud to continue our shared commitment to quality and performance by offering our customers the finest in premium home theater, video, and custom installation services.”
