Bob Pentecost took over ownership of Audioshop in 1993. With his brother Kevin, Bob added televisions, home theatre and multi-room audio systems to the assortment. Marc Hallam left his management position at Saros Stereo in 1994 to come on board with Bob and Kevin and runs the Kanata store. The custom installation manager, Paul Theriault, has been with the company since 1999. Keith Green has been running the insurance replacement division of Audioshop (ClaimControl.ca) for twelve years.

Relying on a loyal, repeat clientele and their refferals, Audioshop has now grown to two locations employing 14 staff, offering state of the art home automation systems, multimedia distribution systems along with full blown home theatre systems yet not forgetting their roots with good old fashion stereo systems. You can still walk in and buy a good record player, amplifier and pair of speakers at a very reasonable price.

Audioshop sales staff represents over a century of experience to listen to the client’s needs and guide them to the best solutions. Whether you need help connecting your computer to your sound system or need multi-million dollar automation system, Audioshop can do it and do it right.

Audioshop employs their own installers and programmers who are friendly, fast and well trained. Our competitors, who contract out installations, cannot offer the same accountability, security and speed of support. At Audioshop, you will be well looked after.
