About Us

Serving discerning audiophiles and those passionate about music.

    When The Sound Choice was founded in 1999, it was borne from a love of music and was dedicated to high-fidelity two-channel listening experiences. We're returning to our roots.

    We have been active in the consumer electronics industry for over 30 years and have provided expert consultation, design and installation of award-winning two-channel, multi-room audio and home theatre projects in the Ottawa/Gatineau market.

    With our renewed focus on two-channel audio, The Sound Choice has selected premier audio brands that share a common purpose and passion, instilling pride of ownership and enriching our clients' life with music of unsurpassed quality.

    Music

    Supplying audiophile recordings to passionate collectors.

      The Sound Choice knows that sourcing audiophile releases can be challenging and expensive. After all, we're collectors too. So, if you're looking for an easy and cost-effective way to build your collection, whether it be new vinyl or SACD, The Sound Choice makes it simple.

      The Sound Choice deals directly with two of the leading U.S. manufacturers and distributors for audiophile releases. While we bring in notable new releases and highly regarded titles to make availabe to our customers, we are also pleased to fulfill special order requests.

      We place orders twice monthly, and provide for pick-up or free local delivery, or for those outside of Ottawa, shipping at cost. Contact us and let The Sound Choice get those "Wantlist" items into your collection.

  • Art Gallery

    Artworks inspired and informed by music and musicians.

      When re-branding The Sound Choice, we wanted to find an image that visually captured the impact and emotion of music - harmony between art and audio.

      We were thrilled to find the image featured on our website, a painting by Roman Nogin from his "Jazz People" series, and even more fortunate to have the pleasure of owning the orginal painting and its companion piece.

      In subsequent discussions with Roman, we felt that clients of The Sound Choice may also share a passion for both music and art, and might welcome the opportunity to acquire a original painting for their own collection.

      The Sound Choice is pleased to feature paintings by Roman and Natasha Perekhodenko, artists from Ukraine, whose works have been exhibited around the world.
