Sounds and Visions – November ’20 Newsletter

By November 18, 2020Newsletters

Happy Thanksgiving, Specialty Sound & Vision Dealers!

More Than 20 Top Brands And Not A Turkey In The Bunch…..


Dear SSV Partners: Starting this month, the SSV Newsletter will be divided into two parts, “SSV News” and “Special Promotions”



NEW SSV Dealer Marketing Resource

As both Specialty Sound and Vision and our Vendors continue to grow, we’ve been developing better ways to deliver marketing content and collateral to our Dealers. Our latest effort places the most important Marketing Resources on a discrete “Resources” tab on our Website:


Leon Welcomes NEW Design Center Showroom: Epic Systems of Randolph, NJ

One of NY Metro’s largest and most successful Control 4 Dealers, Epic Systems is finishing their impressive new showroom and will be displaying a full complement of Leon and Media Décor. Welcome Aboard!


Audiolab: NO Shortages!

We have received news that a fire has destroyed a large Chinese factory that manufactures chipsets for most CE companies; fortunately, Audiolab is one of the few vendors that doesn’t rely upon this supplier. Audiolab is in-stock and will be available throughout the coming months. Please keep this in mind as you plan your holiday merchandising.


EAT E-Glo I Earns December Stereophile Cover

EAT’s first amplification component, the Pure Tube, Pure Mono E-Glo I, receives a “Glo-ing” review (what else?) from Ken Micalef in the December 2020 issue of Stereophile, as well as a nice insert on the cover.

JL Audio Sales: October Sets A New Record!

As we reported in our last Newsletter, SSV had beaten last October’s sales with more than a week left in the month. We’re happy to report that we finished October with our best single month in the history of NY Metro! Thanks to Doug Henderson, Regional Sales Manger, Ed Meenan and most of all, to our supportive and enthusiastic dealers!

Thorens: TD124DD Coming Soon!

63 years after the original TD124 established a new standard of turntable performance, Thorens unveils the TD124DD. Utilizing a high-performance direct drive system in lieu of the original’s idler-wheel drive, no expense has been spared in evoking the classic beauty of the original. The new tonearm, for example, is thoroughly modern in design yet matches the aesthetic of the original, as does a NEW Ortofon SPU cartridge (SPU TD 124) which is included in the package. An extremely limited edition, the TD124DD also comes with a Flight Case and individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Sure to be a Collectors’ Item! Please contact SSV for pricing, availability and demo programs



Wisdom Audio: ICS3 and SUB1 Installation Manuals

We have just received a series of six (6) Installation Guides for Wisdom’s ICS3 “Minimum Aperture” speaker and SUB1 “Snorkel Sub” and assembly is progressing according to plan. Please ask us!
