Founded in 1972, ListenUp employs over 135 people, over 40 percent of which are in technical positions. Perhaps best known for their consumer project design and retail showrooms in Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs, and Albuquerque, NM, the company, since 1976, has been active in the commercial A/V space, specializing in corporate environments, government offices, churches, schools, restaurants, and other large venues. The company enjoys a reputation as one of the most influential independent CE dealers in the country, as evidenced by numerous industry awards including co-founder Walt Stinson’s 2009 induction into the Consumer Electronics Hall of Fame, whose ranks include CE icons such as Steve Jobs, Paul Klipsch, Nikola Tesla, and Thomas Edison.
