Yamaha to open first ‘Sound Centre’ in Melbourne at Big Picture People, Knox.

Yamaha is set to open the doors to its third concept store in Australia this weekend - the first of its kind in Victoria.

The grand opening event on Saturday 4th October comes off the back of a successful Sound Centre launch at Todd’s Hi fi Virginia, Brisbane on the 26th July and the very first venture at West Coast Hi Fi Malaga, Perth earlier this year on the 22nd February.

“We’re excited to be opening our newest Sound Centre at The Big Picture People in Knox”, stated Simon Goldsworthy – General Manager of Yamaha Music Australia’s AV Division. “Melbournians now have a destination to go to experience the very latest in home entertainment technology and a range of Lifestyle and Audio products, from portable Bluetooth speakers to auditioning Yamaha’s flagship models in categories such as Hi Fi, multi-channel home theatre and Sound Bars.”

The Sound Centre at Big Picture People provides an opportunity for customers to get hands-on with Yamaha’s extensive range of home entertainment products, including the award-winning A-S3000 Stereo Amplifier, the new S2100 Series Stereo Components, and the AVENTAGE Separate Components which recently won the EISA prize for European HT High-end Home Theatre 2014-2015. Also worthy of note is the RX-A2040 and RX-A3040 from the AVENTAGE Series V which will support the new Dolby Atmos format, and the new YSP-2500 Sound Bar.

The revamped Knox location has seen The Big Picture People store become Yamaha’s premier showroom in Victoria with custom-built displays and areas dedicated to product demonstration. With this latest installation, Yamaha continues to make headway in realising its ambition of having concept stores throughout Australia and to represent the company as a premium brand to customers and the retail channel.

In addition to grand opening specials and prize giveaways, a special live musical performance by Yamaha Artist, Jimi Hocking of the Screaming Jets, will keep the crowd entertained during the lunchtime rush.

The Sound Centre at Big Picture People is located at Westfield Knox Shopping Centre, at 425 Burwood Highway in Wantirna South, Victoria.
