The HARMAN Luxury Audio Group is proud to have some of the best high-end consumer electronics partners across the globe. Each month, we have the pleasure of learning a little bit more about one of our dealers or distributors. This time we spoke with David K. Pidgeon, President and CEO of Starpower, which has locations in Texas and Arizona.
How long have you been in business?
The first showroom opened in Dallas in 1995.
How many locations do you have?
Starpower has four locations. Three in the DFW area and one in Scottsdale.
How did Starpower get its start?
The original concept when we started our first store was to be a step above the big box stores with more knowledgeable staff and nicer product lines. We weren’t necessarily higher end, but our focus has always been to give our clients more service than what they were used to. As we evolved, we discovered that our clients didn’t just want better equipment and better service, they also wanted better installation. They were looking for the whole package. So, we have developed the capacity to handle larger and larger orders.
How many people are on the Starpower team?
Thoughts on the importance of training?
Training is key for the luxury sales expert and technicians. Staying up to date with the latest technology and software from the manufactures allows us to provide the best service for our clients.
What do you like most about HARMAN Luxury Audio products and which lines do you feature?
We feature all the HARMAN Luxury lines. The range of solutions, from Revel theaters to Mark Levinson two- channel, make it one-stop shopping for audio needs. JBL Synthesis theaters are the ultimate solution to wow our clients in every showroom.
How do you think the luxury audio industry is currently doing?
Seeing a surge as people are spending more time at home and focusing on better audio for their in-home experience.
