We started Soundings in 1986 to offer a place where people that love Music and Film could come and listen, compare, and purchase fine quality Audio and Video equipment in real world surroundings, with real people.
Our longevity is a result of our passion for music and film guided by a stubborn determination to offer only the best products available in all price ranges. Our six showrooms are setup to let you see and hear exactly what a film or piece of music SHOULD sound like in order to give you a basis on which to decide what is right for you.
After you choose your equipment, Soundings attention to detail and skill with designing, installing, and calibrating your system will provide you an experience in your home that far exceeds your expectations.
If you care about quality, if you love Music and film, then Soundings is the place for you.
At Soundings, the products we carry come in second place only to the talent and passion of our staff. While there are a lot of choices when it comes to purchasing audio and video gear, real value comes from dealing with people that are passionate and knowledgeable about what they do.
Our greatest strength lies in our ability to properly design a system around you and your home and then to critically position your speakers and calibrate your audio and video. Master Set™ is our systematic speaker placement process that we have developed over many years of setting speakers in order to guarantee that not a single detail from your film or piece of music is lost.
Our passion for what we do goes far beyond the point of sale on a system. We go to great lengths to satisfy and delight our clients, creating relationships that last a lifetime. Clients will often call us up years after they’ve purchased a system and are pleased that we remember them, and even more surprised that we remember their entire system. If they have a problem or question, we are often able to solve it easily over the phone. When our clients need us, they aren’t directed to call tech support and they aren’t referred back to a huge pile of owner’s manuals. Instead they are met with a warm greeting and a knowledgeable person to solve their problem. And when that’s not enough we’ll be at their home, in person, to take care of it.
If you choose to have us design a home entertainment system for you, we will need to visit your home so we can understand the space you want to put the system in, check out any existing wiring and equipment you may have, and see any obstacles or challenges to the overall installation.
Based on this information we will design your home entertainment system and give you a proposal mapping out every detail. We will revise it as necessary until we have the perfect home entertainment system for you and your family. We believe that you will want a home theater or audio system that is reliable and easy to use, with one remote to operate everything. Most of all we think you want quality gear that is fun to use every single day.
Rod Tomson – Founder/Owner
Born and raised in Loveland Co. Rod discovered a fascination with sound. A graduation gift of a reel to reel Tape recorder and a pair of Koss headphones cemented a path that would take him to Colorado State University where he studied music with the intent of becoming a Symphony/Choral conductor. During this time Rod paid for his education selling Audio equipment at a local hifi store called Team Electronics. After getting his education Rod decided to take a year off of his education and sell audio equipment full time…. That was 47 years ago.
Jeff L. – Sales and Design
Jeff has been in the A/V industry since 2003. What started as a curiosity quickly turned into an addiction that mixed perfectly with his love for all things audio and video. Music, like many of us, caught him at an early age. Whether he is getting lost listening to his favorite band on his favorite two channel system, attending concerts, or laying down some silky blues licks of his own on the guitar, he’s always surrounded by his love for audio. If he’s not diving into his music though, you’ll find him spending time with his amazing wife Kristine and their two dogs either spending time outdoors, catching a movie, playing a game, or relaxing with friends and family. He’s also an avid hockey fan, especially his favorite team the St. Louis Blues. His focus on client relationships and easy going approach blends with his passion and knowledge to make an exciting and truly unique customer experience.
Brad T. – Install Department Manager
From an early age music became an important part of Brads life. He was raised on Motown and Oldies, Classic Rock and Soul but his teenage curiosities led him to discovering Hip Hop, Drum n’ Bass, Turntablism and the art of the DJ. That paired with sales positions at all the big box stores sparked his obsession with electronics, but it wasn’t until he found a home with Soundings that he truly learned what it takes to deliver only the best products and service the industry has to offer. Now older and wiser, his focus is on all aspects of our industry including Audio Distribution, Home Automation, Networking and of course Fine Audio and Video. He is a family man at heart and his passions are playing golf in the summer, and getting up to the mountains for some riding in the winter.
Shannon W. – Office Manager
Shannon has been with Soundings for over 10 years but has been around High End Audio since childhood being the niece of owner, Rod Tomson. However, most of her experience came from growing up with a father who shared his passion for music with Shannon. Most of the back end work behind the scenes is handled by Shanno. Nothing happens unless it hits her desk first! She is a mother of two and five furry pets.
