Our Story

Definitive Audio’s first showroom off 55th in the University District. In 1980, we expanded to ‘Audio Row’ on Roosevelt. In 2001, we moved a few blocks away, to our current location.

Since 1975, Definitive’s experts have been helping you transform your high-performance home audio and theater experience from ordinary to extraordinary. Across our three locations in Seattle, Bellevue, and Tacoma, we have the most tenured experts in the Pacific Northwest, with many of our experts proudly hitting the 15-, 20-, and 30-year experience marks. It is this expertise that sets us apart and allows us to make the process of turning your home or business into a full audio/visual oasis an experience in and of itself. Each and every one of our products has been vetted and selected by our experts, and we carry only the finest, so you have the confidence of knowing you’ve made an investment you can feel good about. From idea to install, we do the hard work for you to create a bespoke solution crafted to your exact liking. We believe the experts determine the experience, and our experts are here to ensure yours is nothing but the best. Let us help you make your life extraordinary.

When we began Definitive Audio in 1975, recognition came from our customers, who supported our efforts to seek out those and companies who shared our passion for recreating the experience of live music in their homes.

Today, we are proud to say that we continue to be recognized by our customers, but we have also been recognized as an industry leader in multiple publications, by manufacturers, and through industry awards.
