Then it hit me, I live in Orange County, Southern Cailfornia. If there is a shop where I could have gone to demo headphones like these or buy a replacement cable, or demo an aftermarket cable I would all but live there. How many of you feel the same?
I want to open up a brick and mortar storefront that caters to the likes of us. A place where you can demo ANYTHING we sell, from HD-800's to Blue Hawaii amps to headphones as exclusive as Stax. After all, who would spend upwards of $5000 for a pair of headphones never having heard them?
I am in the investigating phase and am putting together a business plan. This is where I need your help. Sound off, what would you like to see in a storefront like this, what brands are a must-stock, what can we do that others don't currently do. I want to stay open late, maybe midnight. We all know what it is like needing a last minute adapter but all stores are closed. I want to feature mid to high to very high end audio, video, auto sound/video, apple products, misc personal electronics and specialize in hard to find items, all of which we let you demo or demo or demo for you, thoughts?
