‘Tis the season for shopping, but many audio- and video-philes are looking for more than what the big box home electronics stores can provide. Home theater enthusiasts are looking for higher quality components, commercial parts that may not be available at your average big box store, and knowledgeable sales people that can actually advise them when it comes to designing the home theatre system of their dreams, rather than just rattling off manufacturers’ specs like they know something about home theater design.

That’s why JD Pro is proud to announce the pre-grand opening of a retail location, Sound Attitude at 4401 Arthur Kill Road in Staten Island, New York. Proudly serving the Midland Beach neighborhood of Staten Island and beyond, across the New York tri-state area, Sound Attitude is a family business in an era of big box retailers. We invite you to come, hang out, and see what we have to offer. We’d love to take time to discuss the finer points of plasma vs. LCD vs. OLED, the benefits of 7.1 surround sound in your family room, or the best remote control system to manage lighting, HVAC and of course that home theatre system.

Sound Attitude: Here For the Holidays
We knew how important it was to be open for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and the 2013 holiday season. Our shelves look pretty packed, but we’re only carrying a fraction of the merchandise we want to offer to do it yourself home theatre enthusiasts and the owners of commercial venues who need parts and service. Whether you’re a church technical director gearing up for your Christmas pageant, a retail store who needs replacement touch screens, or a homeowner who needs a new HDTV to watch all those holiday specials, Sound Attitude has our doors open for you.

”You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet
Earlier in the season we held a small ribbon cutting ceremony with family, friends and our supporters in the audio visual industry, as well as the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce and Partners in Sound Productions, an audio visual rental and staging gear firm. The weather was beautiful and the turnout was heartwarming. We were happy to see so many people come out and support us. And we were especially pleased and surprised by audio visual industry member Ted Green’s write-up on his blog. (Thanks, once again, Ted.)

But that’s not the end of our celebration.

We’re planning a big Staten Island-style party for the spring, when the weather is nice and people’s minds are turned to home improvements and new home theater and sound systems. Our top vendors are going to give us blow-out pricing and specials so you’ll get the best deals anywhere. And, as always, we’ll provide the service you need. This is not a “trunk-slammer” event… You might come for the prices but you’ll come back for the friendly service you received. We promise it.

At Sound Attitude (and our other divisions, JD Systems and JD Pro) we know how to party in style. The photos below are just a very small preview of what’s to come. We hope if you missed our pre-Grand Opening, you’ll join us for the real deal this spring or drop in this month for those hard-to-buy for technology lovers on your gift list.
