At The Sound Room, we have a team of very passionate employees who not only sell the products we sell, but also love them and use them at their homes. Each year, we reach out to our sales team and ask them what items they would love unwrap this holiday season. You should see the smiles on their faces as they think through the items and what they’d like to add to their audiophile collection. It’s pretty hard to get each person to narrow it down to just ONE item, but we managed!

If you’re looking for the perfect gift, look no further. We have combed through our stock and pulled together the best items to gift this year. You’ll make someone (maybe yourself) very, very happy with these holiday gifts.

And now, without any further ado, here is The Sound Room’s 2016 Holiday Gift Guide!


Jim Kuhlmeyer:
Rotel RA 1592

This 200 watt per channel integrated amplifier is a wonderful new product we’re carrying at The Sound Room that I would LOVE to receive as a gift this year. It’s one of the best sounding integrated amps. It’s unique because of the 200 watts. Most amplifiers only have 1/2 that amount of wattage. The Rotel RA 1592 can drive virtually any speaker, sounds great and is super powerful. If you want to buy me or a gift (or any music lover in your life) look no further than the Rotel RA 1592.

We always have a great time at CEDIA getting a sneak peek at the latest and greatest releases from some of our favorite brands, but this year was extra special for us. We were named Paradigm’s and Anthem’s Dealer of the Year!

Paradigm and Anthem have hundreds of dealers with worldwide distribution, so this is truly an honor to be named their one and only Dealer of the Year. We are also the first dealer to ever receive the award twice, let alone in consecutive years!

Here are a few words from Keith Dowd, the Director of North American Sales for Paradigm & Anthem on what they look for when choosing their Dealer of the year.

“While sales performance is an important element, it’s a starting point and not the only consideration. We narrow down our list of contenders and then grade them on a number of other criteria related to the experience they provide their customers. Much of that is related to their company culture. Are they there to sell or to serve? Are they invested in long term relationships and helping their clients or just after the quick sale? Is after the sale support as important as making the initial sale? Are they interested in cultivating and growing their local market and are they a positive presence in their community? At Paradigm & Anthem, these are the things we value- so we want to recognize those dealers who share our values.”

We have an immense amount of respect for the Paradigm and Anthem teams and we are honestly huge fans of their products. We are thrilled to receive this award and are thrilled to be a dealer and supporter of Paradigm and Anthem.

If you haven’t made your way out to the new Weber Grill Restaurant at the St. Louis Galleria mall, plan a trip as soon as possible! And we’re not just saying this because we were a part of the building process, but because it is a truly unique and fun place to dine and improve your grilling skills! If you’re a lover of dining on outdoor patio, the Weber Grill Restaurant has a huge outdoor patio that is perfect for the warmer months.

Living in the Midwest, we are not strangers to the summer humidity, pop up storms and unpredictable winter weather. The Weber Grill Restaurant called in The Sound Room’s Electronic Systems Designer, Aaron Blake, to help create an outdoor digital display for the restaurant that could withstand the climate and create the ultimate entertainment experience.

Taking in account the location and climate, Aaron knew he would need advanced waterproofing and temperature resistant technology. After researching and testing, Aaron and the Weber Grill team landed on SunBriteTV’s for the patio and they were the perfect choice!

“The SunBriteTVs are located on the outdoor patio, which can be covered or uncovered, meaning that rain and snow weren’t that big of an issue for the install,” said Blake. “The real concern here was the Missouri humidity, and we knew the SunBrite TVs would be able to withstand even the most humid of days.”

The displays also have an audio reinforcement system on the bar that allows customers to choose between listening to music or watching television. The displays are bright and easy to see, even with the bright summer sun shining on the screen, you won’t miss a moment of your favorite show, which is something the Weber Grill customers can appreciate.
