Boulder County is fortunate to have ListenUp in our midst. Not only does this business, founded in 1972 and located in Boulder since 1981, offer up some the best stereo equipment in the world, it has also been an innovator and early adopter of all things tied to how we experience music. In addition, it sells home automation systems from Control4, Crestron and Savant and even lighting control and automated shades from various vendors like Hunter Douglas, Lutron and Crestron).

Founded by college friends Walt Stinson, Mary Kay Stinson and Steven Weiner, ListenUp has made quite an impact for a small store. Consider that in 1983, ListenUp was instrumental in the U.S. rollout of the Compact Disc. This little Boulder store sold more CD players than any other dealer in the entire nation. And back in 2009, ListenUp co-founder Walt Stinson was inducted into the Consumer Electronics Hall of Fame in the same class as Apple’s Steve Jobs. No wonder our readers voted hands down that ListenUp is the best stereo/electronics store in these parts. Congratulations ListenUp on a brilliant 45 years in business.
