Dutch & Dutch 8c All-In-One Speaker

  July 13 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Please join us for an amazing event to hear the Dutch & Dutch all-in-one (high-end DAC, amps, subwoofers and DSP) speaker at the Shops at Hilltop on July 13.  This event may cause you to reconsider your all separates music system!

From the Dutch and Dutch website:

Completely accurate music reproduction requires more than a thoroughly optimized speaker. It requires a speaker that works together with the acoustics of the listening room.  The 8c is more than just a loudspeaker.
