    In the early 1970's, long before starting TLP Audio, Walt began his career in the audio business. "The store I worked for, Apple Tree Stereo, literally "pioneered" brands such as Pioneer, Onkyo, McIntosh, Audio Research, Shure, Stanton, Audio Technical and many others. Back in the 1970's, good-sounding, high quality audio components were the norm rather than the exception. With that in mind, TLP Audio was started on the Internet in the year 2000 as one of the few last vestiges of fine audio componentry, and providing audio knowledge to our clientele thru a historical lens."

    Walt recalls —

    "I first met the Blue Circle folks in March of 1998 when they purchased shoes from our companion website Classic Pumps. We started reminiscing about the "good old days" of the audio business and how it would be nice if we could bring back those days by building novel and innovative products that are reliable and sound good. We wanted to put some of the fun back into selling audio gear.

    Thanks to Entracte Audio, Gilbert Yeung, Phil Jones, and the products they've designed, we're achieving that goal."
