Introducing Sorella 2

Sorella 2 Small Barrel Speaker

We are excited to announce the release of our newest Barrel Speaker, Sorella 2. Sorella is the Italian word for “sister”. She is small in stature but produces a large, room-filling soundstage. We recommend her for many applications including main stereo speakers, limited outdoor use and movie surround speakers. Sorella 2 comes with matching cradle stands. Optional wall or ceiling mount brackets are also available. They are on display in our showroom for demonstration.

Kitsap Home Theater and Sound System Design and Installation

Nuts About Hi-Fi had the pleasure of designing and installing a complete home theater and whole-home sound system for a beautiful custom home recently built overlooking the magnificent Hood Canal. This home is featured in the latest issue of West Sound Home & Garden magazine. Thanks to the Church family for allowing us to be a part of this fantastic project. Here’s the article where you can read all the details:

SunDog Ranch

A sample from the article:

The Churches gather for a weekly family movie night. The home theater turned out to be a bonus during lockdown as their extended pod of grandkids, nieces and nephews joined in.

Jim Lee and his Nuts About Hi-Fi team designed and installed the theater’s sound and video system and the placement of acoustic panels, as well as the home’s interior and exterior sound systems. Other bells and whistles, 21st-century style, make the property energy-efficient and green: on-demand, hot-water, high-tech heat pump; LED lighting and a super security system.

Carefully placed speakers integrate into the room and create an atmosphere of music enjoyed throughout the house.
Our exceptional home theater installation has led to many fun, popcorn-fueled movie nights.

Hood Canal Home Sound & Media Installation

West Sound Home & Garden magazine recently wrote a really nice feature story on a Kitsap home that we have upgraded with a complete home, audio / video installation. We’re the ones you call when you want the sweetest sound and video setup imaginable. Here’s a link to the article:

Aloha, Hood Canal

Here are a few samples from the article:

Upstairs, a theater with a large screen and sound system comes with a lively history. When Brent Stinnett lived in Poulsbo, he asked a cable company tech who could help him with a whole-house sound system. The tech recommended Nuts About Hi-Fi so he called Jim Lee, the owner. Little did they know what capers would come of their meeting.


Lee installed a sound system with a music library called Sooloos that put 15,000 albums at the fingertips of Stinnett, who expands his access to music further with a subscription website called Tidal. Oh, happy days! Stinnett lights up as he talks about their love of all kinds of music. Well, except rap.


Meanwhile, Nuts About Hi-Fi installed a new setup in the downstairs entertainment room and tweaked the existing central-sound system. The outdoor room sports a drop-down screen and barrel speakers. Donna Stinnett says sometimes the guys are out around the fireplace watching a ballgame and the gals are down the hall singing karaoke.

Beautiful living room with an equally beautiful Nuts About Hi-Fi music system.

Nordost Cables – A Customer Review

“I could not resist the rare opportunity to try Nordost cables in my system. I figured I would start with a Blue Heaven Power Cable for this amplifier, and it did not disappoint. I have used that same amp with cables costing 10x to 60x more, and they did not have nearly the impact as this Blue Heaven cable did. In fact, the performance immediately drove me to purchase more Nordost Blue Heaven cables. I now have speaker, HDMI, digital and multiple power cables. My streaming system has Purple Flare Power Cables and Blue Heaven Digital Cables. How is it possible that cables in these price points can outshine reference products from another company I asked myself?”
