Century Stereo CLOSING – it’s an end of an era!

After 68 years, we regret it’s time to say farewell.  On April 7th, Century Stereo will close its doors for the last time.  Unfortunately having a large retail presence is not sustainable today.

We have truly enjoyed serving the greater Bay Area and sharing our passion for fine electronics and entertainment, and we will truly miss the thousands of customers we have served over the years!

Please continue reading below for more about inventory liquidation and support.


If you have ever wanted the bargain of a lifetime, please visit the showroom now through April 7th, because everything must go!

Everything will be sold at prices you will never see again for premium equipment:

  • Flat panels and projection TVs
  • Reference speakers
  • In-wall speakers
  • Headphones
  • Amps, pre-amps and receivers
  • Digital streaming (eg Sonos)
  • Home control equipment (lighting, automation controls, remotes)
  • Furniture and chairs
  • Outdoor speakers
  • Power conditioning
  • Cables (HDMI, RCA, Balanced, bulk, connectors)
  • Networking (switches, routers)
  • Installation equipment (CAT-5 & 6, mounting hardware, AV racks)
