Pat Yourselves On The Back
Whether it’s the bash brothers, bosom buddies or whatever alliteration Matt has in store for his guests (it’s a wonder we retain any!) we are here to bring you the latest news coming out of the residential side of the AV industry.

Sustainability and environmental AV has been an important point for manufacturers in recent years.

Looking at what it means for a company to expand their products globally. Also, because there are turntables involved someone has to start breaking out the vinyl.
