Hanson AV has been in business since 1999. The business was founded with a passion for excellence in two channel hi-fi audio, home theater and home automation. Located in the Dayton suburb of Kettering, Ohio, Hanson Audio epitomizes the heartland attitude of friendly, professional, service and has an amazing array of state of the art products on hand as well as a beautiful facility in which to experience them. What a shop it is—with three floors and 6000 square feet of some of the best gear available, there is no better place to buy hi-fi! There are seven lifestyle showrooms available within Hanson’s facility, permitting the customer to truly hear and see how a high performance system will function before purchasing it.
Hanson has had a long relationship with Nordost and is one of our select Supreme Reference dealers in the U.S. This means that Hanson is one of the few places where you can audition the new Odin 2 or Valhalla 2 Cables for yourself, as well as the rest of the Nordost range. Just having great products is only half the story, however. It is Hanson’s experienced and professional staff that truly sets them apart. From president Troy Hanson, general manager Andres Sauceda, store manager Chris Cutlip, and floor sales guys Duncan Gwin, and Kevin Tan, the passion and knowledge they bring to the buying experience is second to none. As a full service shop, the company’s installation and service experts make sure that systems are set up on time and that their customers’ expectations are exceeded.
