The Sound Choice is an award-winning audio dealer dedicated to high-fidelity listening experiences. Through private appointments, customers can try out the speakers, turntables, amplifiers, and other equipment in a relaxed listening atmosphere that replicates a real-world setting, without the distractions of a typical retail environment. It’s a different kind of store — and that difference is reflected in the expressive oil painting that has become the shop’s main branding.
When re-branding The Sound Choice, the image entitled “Jazz Club” by Ukrainian artist Roman Nogin was chosen as a way to visually capture the impact and emotion of music. The original artwork is now on display in one of the listening rooms, and The Sound Choice has become the artist’s agent in Canada.
The Sound Choice aims to be a destination for artists and people who enjoy high-end sound experiences. Many of the brands found in this niche boutique are exclusive to The Sound Choice, making it an important local source for fine audio equipment.
Featured below are some exciting new products — including one engineered and manufactured in Ottawa.
Plus, when it comes to music, The Sound Choice features one of the largest selections of new audiophile records in Ottawa, including many top labels and high-demand re-issues. This Christmas, The Sound Choice is giving away a copy of Vince Guaraldi’s A Charlie Brown Christmas on vinyl to everyone who schedules and attends an appointment, to see and hear their systems firsthand.
