Boulder Seminar Postponed (Posted on: 10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM)

Due to production delays in the new 2100 series, the Boulder Seminars scheduled for October 22nd and October 23rd have been postponed. We will be rescheduling Rich Maez's visit as soon as we get updated information from Boulder.


Thank you and Congratulations! (Posted on: 8/16/2013 11:28:19 AM)

 Thank you and Congratulations!

In celebration of the Hinsdale store's 30th anniversary, we held a contest to see who could bring in the oldest Hinsdale invoice.  The customers with the three oldest invoices would receive a prize from some of our top manufacturers.  

Well, after two months of searching your homes for old Audio Consultants invoices, we have our winners.

The oldest invoice, first prize and a pair of Magnepan speakers was won with an invoice from August of 1983, just a few months after the store opened its doors. Second prize and a pair of Transparent Audio cables went to a customer with an invoice from January of 1984.  Third prize and a pair of Sennheiser headphones went to a customer, also with an invoice from January, 1984.   

Thank you for all your well wishes and to everyone who called, wrote and came in to reminisce.


The Importance of Genuine Products (Posted on: 8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM)

Manufacturers are constantly monitoring the marketplace for counterfeit products.  Sennheiser's program, which you can read about here, represents a good example of how manufacturers keenly survey the marketplace for non-genuine products.  


The Wilson Alexias Have Arrived (Posted on: 7/9/2013 10:16:17 AM)

The Wilson Audio Alexias can now be heard at our LIbertyville store. While listening in Libertyville you can also browse through our extensive used record inventory.  The rest of the WIlson Audio lineup can be heard at our other locations: Maxx 3 and Duettes in Evanston, Sophia 3 in Chicago and Sashas in Hinsdale.
