Thank you to everyone joined us for Music Matters this year – we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! People who appreciate music join us for our events and we encourage you continue to build your music listening skills and experience our showrooms throughout the year.

Every year, attendees request a list of  audio equipment in each room, and many of you hear music that left you feeling inspired. We work with our vendors to capture the music selected for the event, and invite you to listen to our Spotify Music Matters Playlist.
