Not every speaker is a box, and not every client wants to hide their tech (especially when it comes to audiophiles!). What goes into making “statement pieces” that stand out? Does “form really follow function”? How does a company try to create designs that are both functional and beautiful – and hopefully, timeless? And how do you really hide gear (notably speakers) in odd/unique spaces, yet maintain quality? We speak with Barry Sheldrick from Meridian Audio, and Mike Cleary from James Loudspeaker/Sonance.

Jason Voorhees of Cantara, Charlie McClarron from Artcoustic, Luke Crutcher from Living Home Tech, and Amit Ravat from Lithe Audio break down the importance of having a terrific relationship with the manufacturers you work with both on big-ticket projects and product development. How does one develop that relationship? How do you maintain that trust? How has a manufacturer solved a problem/bailed you out when a project has hit a snag? How are your products adjusted based on integrator feedback?
