To our 3dB friends and colleagues and clients and distributors and suppliers and all - this is not the post I wanted to compose.

After a three year kick at the audio can I was informed by the store owner that the entity known as 3dB Sound Company will cease to exist as of March 18th.

First - to everyone - THANK-YOU! It certainly was a splendid, if not financially successful, run!

Next - There might be some very special pricing available as we move toward the final day.

I am trying to arrange my schedule to accommodate being open extra days/extra hours to help those who can't make it to the store during our regular hours.
I'll update that information as soon as I am able.

I'll say it again now - and I'll say again later and as many times as I feel I can - THANK-YOU to all who supported this little venture.
You'll never know how much I appreciated all of it.

jac - desperaudio @ large (once again)

Sad to see a wonderful store close, but with change a new opportunity will present itself! I'm sure we've not seen the last of Jac :D

That is true - "Revival Audio" may re-invented and rise again and, as we all should know, a good Desperaudio waits for a train and stays under the eaves.

"And I played the Red River Valley
And he'd sit in the kitchen and cry
Run his fingers through seventy years of livin'
And wonder, "Lord, has every well I've drilled gone dry?"
We was friends, me and this old man
Was like desperados waitin' for a train
Like desperados waitin' for a train"
(Clark)

"Don't the sun look angry through the trees
Don't the trees look like crucified thieves
Don't you feel like Desperados under the eaves
Heaven help the one who leaves"
(Zevon)

Man.....so sorry to hear that. The audio store gig is a tough go lately....

It is sad to hear of another store with some passionate folks close up.......

Best of luck to you in your future ventures.

The entity known as 3dB Sound Company is coming to an end. Our first and last close-out sale.
As it so often said - Everything Must Go!
Right down to the walls.
Starts Thursday, March 09 and runs every day through Saturday March 18th.
Hours are 11:00 through 19:00 each day - or longer if necessary.
Cash/Debit preferred - Visa/MC Available if really needed.

If you've been to 3dB before but can't make it this time - Thanks - you likely made my day that time you were here!

Hi,

It would be helpful if someone could list what you have on offer for those of us not close to Edmonton. CAM buyers are usually happy to arrange for shipping. For instance, in one of your photos I spy a Lowther folded horn DIY project. I remember that design from an issue of Sound Practices.

Cheers,
David Neice

This is the worst news I've heard in 2017, and may remain that way =(

Where will I get my Tannoy fix in the future?

This is unfortunate news. :(

Any specific reason given for the closure?

Thanks to one and all for the kind words and sentiment.

We can't get a list together in the short time we have left and given the amount of traffic we're seeing (Close-Out Sales will do that) and there won't be any time to implement any shipping.

IF you can - some information can be had from - https://www.facebook.com/3dBSoundCo/

Message us through there or send us an e-mail - 3dBsoundcompany@gmail.com

Call us at 780-487-5767

I certainly will endeavour to help out as much as I can before the 18th of March!

regards,

jac

Better to have tried than never taking the leap.

Best wishes for all future endeavours, audio or otherwise...

A long time since our paths first crossed at a stereo store in Edmonton whose name escapes me where I first met Kit (RIP).

All the best Jac!

It is a very tough go, for a labour of love.

Again, we sincerely wish you and yours all the best.

So saddened to have read this this morning. I always love to read about successful Canadians in the audio world, and although you will always go down as one, the closing is a very sad thing indeed.
Had hoped to be able to visit that store one day..:-(

All the best in whatever you will come up with in the future.

We got to spending a few minutes with a few colleagues talking about our feelings about 3dB and what it's meant to us and what it has meant to others over the last three years.

With but seven days left before the doors are locked and the rooms that we've listened to many hours of great music through great gear are being torn down we have an increasing sense of sadness.

We always looked at it as more than just a store and we know it was more than that to more than a few of you.
It was almost a clubhouse where audio enthusiast folk could hang out and spend time.

We very much wish we could have finished the season holding the audio version of a major sports trophy but, if I might paraphrase a line from the sport of curling, reality just ran us out of rocks.

We hope you, as so many already have done, do drop by to see us - maybe there's something at 3dB you may care to purchase before the lights go out. Perhaps only a good ol' tongue wag is in order.

When it's all done - we'll still be around. Although the store will close there is a phoenix-like stirring in the ashes and the "3dB Sound Company" name may live on - albeit wearing a very different hat and boots.

When it's all done - will we miss you when we're gone?

Yes we will.

3dB Store Hours - The final days - Every day from to-day (Sunday) through Saturday March 18th, 11:00 to 19:00hr
