The latest and most sought-after audio/video systems under one roof
The 25th edition of the Salon Son & Image will provide a unique opportunity for music and high-quality sound enthusiasts to discover the latest devices and equipment and take their passion a notch higher.
“Visitors will not want to miss this event, which once a year brings together 100 exhibitors presenting some 300 product brands and cutting-edge audio and video systems,” affirms Michel Plante, Salon President. “One of the key elements attracting our visitors is Canada’s global reputation for quality and the number of high-end manufacturers who specialize in audio equipment. In fact, our Salon is the largest and most prestigious of its kind in the country.”
You don’t have to be an audiophile to benefit from a visit to the Salon; all music lovers will find a wide range of information to help them learn more about their hobby or make the best choice if they are in the market for high-fidelity audio and video equipment.
In addition to showcasing high-quality products, the Salon Son & Image offers training sessions and seminars designed to enrich your audio or video experience. For example, you can learn how to calibrate your home theatre receiver or HD television, get info on the best applications to control your system from your iPod, iPad, iPhone or Android, or obtain advice on how to listen to and compare audio systems. You can also join discussions with speaker designers, digital technology experts, and a host of other specialists.
Of particular interest is that the Salon will be held in the comfort of rooms that have been cleared of their furniture at the Hilton Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Montreal (900 de La Gauchetière West, Bonaventure métro). This unique venue offers visitors an exceptional environment and optimal acoustics to appreciate the systems on display.
The Salon Son & Image will be held from Thursday, March 22 to Sunday, March 25, 2012. For just $15, you’ll discover products that may just change the way you listen to music, watch television, or enjoy your favourite films. Reputed technology columnist François Charron also returns as Salon spokesman for the second consecutive year.
