ListenUp Colorado Springs has numerous demonstration areas in which you can compare products and figure out which ones you like best. Our career salespeople will take the time to help you get the component or system that matches your needs, desires and budget. We are also experts in system control and installation, so we will make sure everything is beautifully integrated into your home and easy to use for the whole family.
Flat-Panel TVs

Our beautifully curved TV Wall lets you compare and contrast LCD, LED and plasma flat-panels from Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, Sharp and more. We also have TVs wall-mounted throughout our showroom, so you can see what they look like in realworld settings. We’ll be happy to explain the pros and cons of each technology, and if you need help installing your new TV in your home, we have the top installation personnel in Southern Colorado.

Lifestyle Vignettes

You can enjoy excellent home theater without overwhelming your living areas. A wall-mounted flat-panel takes up no floor space, and our on-wall and in-wall speakers don’t, either. We have a great selection of stylish credenzas and cabinets that are specially designed to house your components and provide ample ventilation and cable management. As these vignettes show, we can tastefully integrate today’s technologies into your home’s décor. We sell all the couches, chairs and other pieces you see here, too.

Hi-Fi Rooms

We have two Hi-Fi rooms for your listening pleasure. Hi-Fi 1 features the very best speakers and two-channel components we have to offer. Whether you’re already an audiophile or you just want to hear how great music can sound, we invite you to sit down and have a listen. Hi-Fi 2 features a great selection of more affordable speakers and electronics from the world’s leading manufacturers.

Computer Audio & Wireless Solutions

Computer audio isn’t just the future of audio, it’s happening right now! If you have an iPod, iPad or smart phone, you’ve already got lots of music stored on your computer. We have advanced powered speakers, digital-to-analog converters and other products to help you get the best sound possible. And with the amazing Sonos system, it’s never been easier to distribute all this great music to every room you want!

Headphone Bar

Whether on the go with your iPod or at home when you want to keep the noise down, you need a good pair of headphones (or two!) to enjoy all the great entertainment options available today. Our Headphone Bar lets you listen to the latest and greatest ‘phones from Denon, Grado, thinksound and more. You can even bring in your iPod and listen to your very own collection to help you make your decision.

3-in-1 Theater

This unique demonstration room features three full front projection systems, each with a 120-inch screen, which allows you to do a meaningful A-B-C comparison of the latest projectors from Epson and Sony. High-end in-ceiling speakers and great electronics provide enveloping surround sound. You can also experience highperformance two-channel theater, all while relaxing in plush theater seating.

Switching Theater

This useful demonstration room provides the ability to switch back and forth between over 20 sets of speakers from manufacturers such as B&W, PSB and more, so you can easily compare performance and find the ones you like best. Electronic components include models from Denon and NAD.

B&W CT Theater

The CT Theater was acoustically optimized by Rives Audio, the world-leader in room acoustics for home theaters and listening areas. You’ll definitely be able to hear for yourself the difference proper acoustics can make. Equipped with a Runco LED projector, Rotel and Sony electronics and B&W CT series speakers all around, this sensational demo room will give you an idea of what real home theater is!

Turntables

In the Video room you can view the best LCD, LED and plasma displays available today. Unlike the big box stores which display their sets in brightly lit, warehouse-like conditions, our cozy viewing area has adjustable lighting to more closely approximate conditions in your own home.

Outdoor Speakers

Why limit your music to inside your house? Our all-weather speakers from B&W and other great manufacturers will let you enjoy your favorite tunes on your deck or patio and even out in the middle of your yard.

Furniture

In addition to the finest audio/video equipment, ListenUp Colorado Springs offers an extensive selection of theater seating and furniture from well-known manufacturers such as Berkline, Salamander and more.

Store Manager
Employee Since 1999
Dave Huddleston
Colorado Springs store manager David Huddleston came to us from Phoenix, where he owned his own custom integration company and then worked for a leading home entertainment custom retailer. After one too many people uttered the phrase “Yeah, but it’s a dry heat,” he decided it was time for a change, so he loaded up his family and headed north.“Working at ListenUp has exceeded my expectations. As a dedicated A/V enthusiast myself, it’s really cool to work at a place where the entire organization strives to stay ahead of the curve technologically. It’s a ‘learners’ environment — everyone is very diligent about keeping up with the latest stuff, which I find really stimulating and fun.”Now that they don’t have to worry about instant heat-stroke, David and his family love to take advantage of the many recreational activities Colorado has to offer. “We love mountain biking, hiking, four-wheeling, fishing — anything outdoors. We’ve even gotten into skiing a bit!”

Gary Wrasse
Gary Wrasse originally hails from Southern California, where he worked at a Pasadena A/V dealer for 9 years. Even having grown up there, though, he eventually became weary of the crowded life on the left coast. His wife is from Colorado Springs originally, so he jumped at the chance to come here.Gary was the store manager for several years, but now he’s back to doing what he really loves — dealing with customers. “I enjoy the whole process of putting together high-end systems. I’m working on a big job right now that involves distributed audio and HD video, Crestron control, Lutron lighting, and a dedicated home theater with Rives acoustical treatments. The clients are great, I get to work with a nationally recognized architect, and I have all kinds of support from our engineering and custom departments up in Denver as well as our installation staff down here. It’s the type of job that really makes me feel like I’m in the right place.”

Rob started out life as a pastry chef. After many years of working late nights in the restaurant industry, he went back to his fanatical love of music and childhood desire to be a radio DJ and came up with a career in the A/V world. He started out with a regional electronics chain and joined ListenUp in 2010. With his collection of over 2000 albums, Rob has brought a music knowledge base that is outstanding! “I don’t feel like I even work when I’m here. My job is to help people get back into their music. I’d do thatfor free!”Rob made it here from Iowa by way of Seattle. He and his wife, who met while on a cruise ship in Alaska, have one child, and they love to enjoy the Colorado lifestyle. Rob brings a diverse background to ListenUp and looks forward to keep sharing his love of music with his clients.

A native of the Colorado Springs area, Brian Kawakami was in the A/V business for seven years before he started working for us in 2007. “I always wanted to work for ListenUp, so when they had an opening for an installer I jumped at the opportunity. I actually bought my first audio components here back in 1995 from Gary Wrasse, and now he’s one of my co-workers.”In fact, Brian has been doing the pre-wire for one of Gary’s larger jobs. “It’s really cool to get to work in a beautiful home like that,” says Brian, “and it’s pretty amazing to be a part of such a big effort. We’ve already put in almost seven miles of cable, and we’re not even done!”An avid photographer in his spare time, Brian enjoys working at ListenUp because of all the cutting-edge equipment he gets to learn about and install. We’re happy to have him with us.

Installer
Employee Since 2010
Clint Kawakami
Starting in 2010, Clint was the second in the Kawakami family to join the Colorado Springs installation team. He got started in this industry when he was 15 and realized it was possible to put a massive stereo system in a car that could blow out windshields. He moved from cars to installing phone systems to installing home audio. He has been installing home audio and video for 11 years and loves the home automation and integration that ListenUp offers to clients.”My favorite things about working at ListenUp are the changing products and technology,” says Clint. “I also love the opportunity to meet clients, to see the newest homes and décor.”Clint is a native of Colorado Springs. He does all the Colorado favorites like snowboarding, riding motorcycles, shooting photography and going to live concerts. If you don’t find him out at a client’s house it’s a pretty sure bet he is outside somewhere living it up. Clint is also the proud father of a female boxer puppy.

Tom Larkin
An A/V industry veteran, Tom came up through the ranks at a regional consumer electronics store. He started out selling cameras and quickly moved into audio and home theater. Working at ListenUp has become a family tradition, as his cousin Ben works in our Denver store. Happily expanding his knowledge base and continuing to grow professionally, Tom brings an excitement level that is contagious. “Working at ListenUp is a blast, because I get to play with and learn about all the newest toys in the consumer electronics industry.”Outside of work Tom has two passions – golf and snowboarding. He has an eight handicap and is continually working to improve. His favorite place to snowboard is Steamboat, where you can find him on many of his days off during the winter months.
