Audio Advice announced the acquisition of The Audio Lab, which has been serving the coastal Carolinas from its Wilmington store for over 30 years.

“We are super excited to welcome The Audio Lab and its terrific team to the Audio Advice family. We believe this combination will allow us to provide the best of both companies to customers throughout the Carolinas” said Scott Newnam, CEO of Audio Advice.

Bill Rudisill, owner of The Audio Lab, said, “I am extremely proud of what we have at The Audio Lab and could not be more happy with our team joining the Audio Advice family. The more I have learned about Audio Advice and watched how they have embraced our team, the more excited I have become for our team. Audio Advice is bringing a level of training, reputation, and investment into our team and showroom that makes me incredibly happy.”

Audio Advice has showrooms in Raleigh and Charlotte that allow consumers to “experience everything from smart home systems, controlled lighting and shades, to every level of audio products and home theaters.”

“We believe in having large best-in-class showrooms that allow consumers to touch, feel, and experience everything before buying. While this requires a substantial and continued investment, we believe it provides massive value to consumers and brands. To that end, we will invest in The Audio Lab showroom in Wilmington to be consistent with our other award-winning showrooms” said Gregg Chopper, chief operating officer of Audio Advice.

“In addition to providing the combined expertise in Wilmington for The Audio Lab customers, this combination allows us to better serve our customers who have second homes at the beach cities. We now have by far the largest team of expert sales professionals, system designers, installation technicians and service and support personnel throughout the Carolinas. This should allow us to bring our mission of “Delivering Happiness” to an even larger set of customers” exclaimed Gregg Chopper.
