"When Music Matters", a "Nautilus" Celebration & Charity Raffle!
B&W's Iconic Nautilus Speaker is turning 20! Audio Video Interiors of Middleburg Heights is celebrating with a rare opportunity to audition the "perfect loudspeaker" while enjoying live music, fun foods, bourbon & wine tastings and a Charity Raffle benefiting The Expressive Therapy Center of Akron Children's Hospital.
March 22, 2013 from 5:00PM- 9:00PM

"Listen and You'll Hear" is B&W's challenge and, for this Cleveland event, they are pulling out all the stops in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of their "perfect loudspeaker", the one-of-a-kind Nautilus!  This is truly a rare experience as Audio Video Interiors has been chosen as the only Bowers & Wilkins dealer between New York City & Dallas to have them available for auditioning.  And what music is being played through them? That's up to the guests as they are invited to bring their favorite recordings with them and "plug in".  Nautilus in White

Michael Pope, owner of Audio Video Interiors & Safety Technologies explains,"The Bowers & Wilkins event is special because it commemorates the 20th Anniversary of the Nautilus speaker. I had the pleasure to tour their facility in London and witness first hand B&W's attention to detail, superior craftsmanship, and quest for the "perfect" sound.  The Nautilus speaker is so well engineered that it has not been changed in 20 years!  The fact that they are all custom made, by the same person, in their factory in London makes them unique.  And we have the only pair on display for thousands of miles!" 

Are they the "perfect loudspeaker"? The experts at this Middleburg Heights AV & Security Integration company think so. "The Nautilus speakers' engineering, aesthetics, performance and glowing reviews have made these  coveted amongst audiophiles all over the world. Those with a passion for great sound should not miss such a rare chance to hear them in person," adds Jason Spence, Sales Engineer & Project Manager.    


To celebrate this occasion and kick off its new role as the sound system featured in the 2014 Maserati Quattroporte GTS, B&W will be displaying the Nautilus in their new Maserati Gray.  And, to make it a truly special evening, the theme of "When Music Matters" was extended to feature a very important local project that Audio Video Interiors had supported where music matters, The Expressive Therapy Center at Akron Children's Hospital.    Music plays a pivotal role at the Center where seriously ill children are empowered through music and art.  This "expressive" therapy helps them cope with their illness and aids in their healing. Pope and his staff welcomed the opportunity to promote the work of The Expressive Therapy Center and to help raise funds.   "It makes me feel good! Anytime we can host an event that supports these "fearless" little warriors, their parents, and the dedicated staff at Expressive Therapy Center is a win for everyone!", exclaims Pope.

Jackson Rohm2
Jackson Rohm performs 6-9pm and is donating a portion of CD sales to the Charity!

Ohio native and popular entertainer throughout Cleveland and Put-In-Bay, Jackson Rohm will take the stage at 6PM.  His stage will actually be a beautifully landscaped patio within the design center, providing an intimate setting for his selection of popular hits and original music.  Jackson is excited to be part of this project and is graciously donating, in his words, "a large chunk of any CD sales" from the evening.  ProAudio support for the live performance will be provided by the new Midas Venice 16F mixer along with gear from Renkus-Heinz and Community.

The fun doesn't end there!  Challenged with creating an uplifting Put-In-Bay theme for Clevelanders anxious to soak up some warmth, Matt Barnes, aka "The Gourmet Guy", has put together a boardwalk-inspired menu from potato pancakes with smoked salmon, capers and dill sour cream to corned beef and cabbage sliders to old fashioned ice cream!  Jim Fink, Sommelier, will be presenting a wine tasting while Cleveland Whiskey conducts their famous "Cleveland Challenge" Bourbon Tasting!  They've also donated a Tour and Tasting for 12 to the charity raffle.  Raffles items have been donated by national manufacturers and local businesses and range from a portrait sitting to original art and even an electric guitar!  B&W fans will want to win the P5 headphones valued at $300 and take advantage of a special savings on speakers during the event.
