All sound, zero vibration

Two force-cancelling speaker drivers positioned face-to-face means all the sound and energy from the music comes through loud and clear, and none of it is lost in cabinet buzz or rattle.

Our Spring Newsletter!

Spring is here and with it comes the joys of  Spring Cleaning and Home Improvements!  Here are a few ideas, new product upgrades and reminders to help you care for  your Smart Home.

First up, WE HAVE MOVED!!!

We have not gone far…3 doors down in the same complex.  The idea is to build a new showroom is most about the interactive home.  The new space will feature a home theater and some high performance audio for your listening pleasure. It will also be a completely automated space. You can visit and experience complete home control, from security and surveillance, to home control options like lighting and temperature control and motorized shades! And a group of control mechanisms… i pads, smart phones, Control 4 touch screens and simple hand held remotes. Our new address is 192 W. Larch Road, Suite C Tracy, CA 95304. Please drop by soon!

Here are a couple of new and exciting products recently added to our line up.

QMotion Automated Shades

Discover beauty in motion……NO WIRES REQUIRED!!!!

QMotion is constantly taken giant leaps in the design of window treatments to offer you the most sophisticated and aesthetically designed shades on the market. By being awarded additional patents on their cutting edge shades is proof on the passion and commitment QMotion has in designing and building the best window treatments for you .  QMotion’s motorized roller shades incorporate the batteries, motor and gear inside the tube creating a sleek, unobtrusive design option for window treatments. Other brands of motorized roller shades have the battery compartment or motor outside the tube creating a less elegant design.

QMotion automated window coverings are assembled in the United States and sold around the world by a network of premium dealers and partners. QMotion products require no re- wiring and are able–using standard D-cell alkaline batteries–to last years longer than competitors’ battery-operated systems. QMotion products are environmentally friendly, can help reduce energy costs and are safer for homes with small children and pets. QAdvanced automated window treatments are the only automated products on the market that feature a patented manual override. In 2014, QMotion was recognized with CE Pro’s Gold Quest for Quality award for excellence in customer service

Arcam-European craftsmanship at affordable prices.

Arcam is based just outside the famous university city of Cambridge, and our story started the classic way: two friends with a passion for music and electronics met up while engineering students at Cambridge University, and founded Amplification and Recording Cambridge in 1976.

Making equipment able to reproduce even the smallest detail captured by the studio microphones is only half the story: to make the most of that equipment, the effort we put into research and development must be matched by careful and precise installation.

Arcam knows its products have the potential to thrill, but we know that achieving that aim is as much about where you buy as what you buy. Our highly-trained dealers can not only help you explore the abilities of our products, but ensure they perform to their full capability in your home.

We have an Arcam Surround Sound receiver playing in the showroom for your auditioning pleasure.

rotel rdd1580 DAC

The Rotel RDD-1580 is available in Silver or Black at $799.00

Here are a few of the highlights from the review;

“Unlike many DACs built to a lower price point, the RDD-1580 doesn’t look or sound cheap. I was impressed by the RDD-1580’s dynamic acumen on all sources. Whether playing a large orchestral composition or a solo recording, the RDD-1580 retained the dynamic differences on both macro and micro levels.”

“The RDD-1580 produces a large, three-dimensional soundstage with pinpoint lateral focus. On the 24/44.1 version of Lorde’s “Royals” from HDTracks, each chorus member’s voice has its own unique location in the mix. Through the Rotel, the varying reverb tails for the percussion and vocal parts are also quite obvious. On the new high-resolution 24/192 version of the Grateful Dead’s “Box of Rain” from HDTrack’s Complete Studio Album Collection, the RDD-1580 reveals the added sparkle and quack from Jerry Garcia’s Fender Stratocaster, along with the greater decipherability of the background vocals. Like other better DACs that I’ve heard, the RDD-1580 makes it easy to listen deep into the mix.”

“Choose any cut from the HDTracks’ 24/88 download version of Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories, and the RDD-1580 will reward you with rollicking, powerful, yet well-defined bass. On Fred Redekop & Jay Taylor’s As Julia Ponders…, the RDD-1580 does a superlative job of retaining all the detail on both the leading and trailing edges of Taylor’s electric bass.”

“If your current or former state-of-the-art DAC is getting long of tooth, rather than knee-jerk replacing it with another megabuck DAC, you might want to give the Rotel RDD-1580 DAC a try. It will surprise you.”
