Serving the Saint Louis area since 1980
The Speaker and Stereo Store operates by appointment. I demonstrate in a relaxed home setting. My brands are specifically selected for their high performance-to-price ratio, offering the best values in audio.
Some manufacturers ask me to sell their brand only in the St. Louis Missouri metro area, while other brands may be shipped to other places so long as the customer has no local dealer. Contact me for information.
Drawing on 30 years of sales and installation experience I offer consulting, construction, and installation services for needs ranging from setup of two channel systems to construction of home theater / media rooms.
I am able to fill requests for many brands not listed here. If you have your heart set on a product from a brand not listed here feel free to check with me on its availablity. Examples of brands available to me are Acoustic Zen, Furman, NAD, and Atlantic Technology.

- Get off the surround sound treadmill
An audiophile friend complained to me that the value of surround processors and receivers dropped hugely after a year, sometimes sooner, because of the fast pace of replacement models. This is both true and total BS. It’s true for the resale price — depreciation is amazing. But … Continue reading
- All Hail the Triton Five
A newsletter or two ago I reported that I had been surprised and pleased when I moved the Triton ONE-R from my demo room, replaced it with the Triton Five, and fell in love with the Five. I listen to … Continue reading
