A thank you from Leon

Dear Friends,

I want to thank all of you for attending our 30th anniversary Music Matters event last week and for being such a great audience. Personally, I had a blast seeing many of you. I hope you had a good time listening to the systems we had on display. We have been getting feedback from the vendors who attended. Michael Fremer (from Stereophile) commented that it was the best crowd at any event like this he had ever done! We have received similar comments from everyone else as well, so thank you! (Some pictures of Music Matters are posted below.)

If you did not get a chance to seriously listen to the new Wilson Audio MAXX3s or Martin Logan CLXs, those two companies have graciously allowed us to keep these stellar products on hand for a few more days. Feel free to drop by and check them out!

We hope to have many more events in the future to showcase music and new technology.

We’re currently planning our first Movies Matter event in February of 2009, close to Oscar time, so watch for more news about it at our website, http://www.audioadvice.com/.

In these unusual economic times a lot of us are electing to stay home and enjoy time with our families. I can think of no better way to make your home more entertaining than a great Audio Advice system. There are so many new and exciting products that make listening to music more fun, we hope you will allow us to help you enjoy your home more with a new system or upgrades
from Audio Advice. You can contact me directly at (919) 881-2005, or by e-mail at [email protected].

When I started Audio Advice 30 years ago, I had no idea that it would ever become the company it is today. It was really amazing to see close to 300 of you show up for our anniversary and event. We would not be able to bring this kind of event to the area without having lots of Audio Advice systems out there, and I really appreciate your continued support over the years!

Thanks again for attending, and I hope you and your family have a great holiday season!

Leon Shaw, Chairman
