St. Louis Audio and Home Theater company list
« on: 13 Feb 2010, 07:10 pm »
Hey fellow GASSERS, greetings.

I thought it would help local business if we could start a thread with a list and links to all of the companies, manufacturers, distributors, etc...of audio and home theater items that are located in STL.
If you fellas have your own company or know of one, please post in this thread. When the list is compiled I'll try to clean and organized it a bit.

I'm starting threads here and on AudioNervosa. That thread is >> HERE <<.
Companies do not need to be added to both forums, whichever is your preference is fine. I'll keep the lists on both sites identical.

Thanks guys, feel free to post if I've forgotten anyone.

Bob

Eventually, my goal is to have a one stop shopping "white pages" of audio places in St. Louis. Which, I suppose, makes it only fair to include retail places that sell the music we love so much.
Good call on that one Mitsu.  :wink:

I'd eventually like to have the list complete with addresses, phone numbers, emails, and websites. An easy place where the membership can go to find our "stuff", ya know.

So if anybody has any helpful information, please post as much as you can.

Bob

Both added to the list, thanks guys.

Jim brings up something too....If any of you would like to give a brief description of your company and the products and services you offer, those posts will stay in the thread permanently. Eventually, posts that don't have long term relevance will be deleted to keep things clean and neat.

Bob

EDIT: I did some pruning of posts not directly related to the topic. Oct 17 2011.

Sounds by Design  -  there's a cool article about them at stlmag.com/athome this month. They design/build/sell heirloom speakers, which is a new term to me.

Heil   (in Fairview Heights, IL - HT design/installation)

Audio Nirvana

That old library on the Hill that sells LP's and vintage gear...can't remember the name of it.

There is a specialty wood supplier in Marissa, IL...for diy speaker build projects. About 40 minutes from downtown.

Boobtone Amplification is 15 minutes from downtown, in Collinsville, IL.  They may only build custom cabinets for guitars & instruments, not sure.  Across from Swing City Music recording studios.

I thought I would add myself to the list:

The Speaker and Stereo Store is a one-man home-based "store", operated by me, Wylie Williams. I demo Gallo Acoustics, GoldenEar Technology, Vincent Audio, and Bel Canto by appointment.

I have a website www.speakerandstereostore.com which lists my brands.  You can contact me by phone at 314-692-2230 or email me at wylie@speakerandstereostore.com.

Bump.

Are we missing anybody? Any changes need to be made?
This thread has been highly modified in the past two years, simply to keep it clean. 
So "continuity" might be choppy and you may even remember posting here but it's gone.
Nothing but "the good stuff' type info will remain.

Bob  :D

Well.....It's not entirely strange that there's no information for the bigger companies. The main reason they're left blank, is that they have no representation here giving me the contact information. And the second reason is that I'm too lazy to look up the info anyway.  :lol:

But I did put that phone number in there though, thanks for that.

Our moderator Bob has asked me to update the information that I posted about a year ago about what Osage Audio Products does and how we do it.  We serve the St. Louis metro area by conducting in-home equipment demonstrations and by delivering equipment and setting it up.  We do this throughout most of the middle of the country.

We manufacture the Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solutions (record cleaning), Listener Select (record and silver disc cleaning), and Niangua (audio cables) product lines.

I am personally available to answer questions and demonstrate equipment just about seven days a week from early morning until late evening.  We also do demos here at times to fit most anyone's schedule.

Here are the lines we handle:

Electronics:  E.A.R., KAB, Lejonklou, Unison Research, UNICO, Bel Canto Design, Grado, Sonneteer

Analog:  Benz Micro, Ortofon, DB Systems, Clearaudio, Merrill-Williams, Unison Research, Lejonklou, Sutherland, 
            Graham, Nitty Gritty, VPI Industries, Helius Designs, Mobile Fidelity, Musical Surroundings, Audio Intelligent
            Vinyl Solutions, Listener Select, KAB, Soundsmith, Lyra, Grado, Sonneteer, Lehmann Audio


Loudspeakers:  Opera, Vienna Acoustics, Neat Acoustics, Unison Research

Power/ Cables:  Richard Gray's Power Co., Niangua, Kimber Kable, Grado, Ortofon, Graham

Stands/ Furniture:  Sound Anchors, Solidsteel

Dynaudio has come out with a new Focus line, I heard one of the models and it was very good, still Dyn but improved over the older Focus.  If other haven't been there in a while MFP have added Bolder, Sim Audio, Octave Audio and Sonus Faber to the line up.
