Integrators all know that if you can conduct a demo with a prospective client, the chance of closing the deal and earning a higher ticket on the sale greatly increase. But most CE pros don’t have the time, energy or money to build a dedicated home theater in their showroom? Or, for that matter, have a showroom at all?

Other key features of the 4K Pulse 8 are it a full monitoring system to help reduce unnecessary truck rolls, and it is cloud-based with a dashboard page for each customer available to the dealer.
For Current Audio, SCP is excited to bring the company's five series of speakers, integrated amps and control products to dealers. Current Audio has 17 different patents, including one for its innovative FastLoc grille, which Spiller says is much better than a magnetic grille for speakers ... [ read more ]
