With the arrival of the winter season in Washington we are once again able to hit the slopes, build a cozy fire, or just enjoy the beautiful view of the majestic snow covered mountains. However, unfortunate side effects are the winter storms that can cause havoc throughout the area with heavy rains, high winds, and sometimes even electrical storms. These storms routinely cause massive power outages and unwanted electrical disturbances, like surges. Fortunately there are products to help protect your valuable equipment.
One of the leading lines of surge protection and power conditioning is a product called Watt Box. Watt Box comes in several configurations to fit your needs. Whether you need just a 2-outlet conditioner, or a 12-outlet conditioner with IP control and USB charging dock, Watt Box has you covered with everything in between. With top of the industry surge protection, power conditioning to filter out those unwanted electrical noises, and 18-gauge steel construction, Watt Box will negate any fear of unprotected equipment, and allow you to enjoy the beautiful sounds of the season through your beloved system. So stop by or give us a call to show you how Watt Box can be integrated into your system.
For the last couple of years we have been on the hunt for a quality wireless speaker system. We auditioned several different products, only to find software glitches and/or poor sound quality. We were about to give up on this category all together.
Then our good friend, Walter Bell, who represents Denon, gave us a call. He said he had something we needed to buy. A couple of days later Walter showed up armed with several of these new HEOS products and started randomly placing them throughout the store. Then he opened his iPad, smiled and said “What are you guys in the mood to hear?” A couple of seconds later the Rolling Stones were not getting any satisfaction anywhere in our showroom. I followed him around while he adjusted the individual volume and equalization for each room and pretty soon we had a very nice, seamless balance of sound that is easy on the ears.
When he told me the pricing, I almost couldn’t believe it. You can get started with this system for just two hundred dollars and add music throughout your home or business to your heart’s content. They also offer a very nifty little gadget called a HEOS Link that allows you incorporate your existing audio system. All you need is some sort of smart device, a wireless network and you are golden. Stop in, check these out and get some satisfaction.

Before going into the studio, we had to hand over our cell phones as no photos were allowed and everyone signed a non-disclosure agreement. At this time no one in the world, other than the people at Focal, had seen or listened to this new line called Sopra n°2.
