After nearly four decades, Music (still) Matters at ListenUp

In 1972, ListenUp began designing and selling high-quality audio/video systems in Colorado. Thirty-eight years later, the company, which is still going strong, is hosting its annual Music Matters summit this week. Among the speakers are John Atkinson, editor of Stereophile magazine, a man considered one of the preeminent authorities on sound products, and Joe Harley, whose California-based company, AudioQuest, produces some of the highest-quality and cost-efficient speaker cables on the market today.

Along with these keynote speakers, there will be representatives from B&W, Moon, Peachtree Audio, Classé, Sonus faber, PrimaLuna, Musical Fidelity and NAD, each sharing their expertise on the current state of digital and analog audio, as well as what the future may hold. Attendees can also sample headphones from Sennheiser, Grado, Denon and Monster, and all will be entered to win cables, records, headphones and more.

The summit kickeds off today in Colorado Springs. Tomorrow, the free event will start at 5 p.m. and run until 9 p.m. at the Denver store, 685 South Pearl Street; it will move up to Boulder, at 2034 Arapahoe Avenue, from 5-9 p.m. Thursday. Space is limited, so RSVP by calling 303-778-0780 for Denver, and 303-444-0479 for Boulder.
