Definitive Audio More Than Just a Store
By David Dritsas
When Mark Ormiston came to Definitive Audio in 1982, he joined a business that owned one store with a handful of salespeople. Today, as president of the company, Ormiston oversees two stores and a diverse staff of 64 employees that includes salespeople, architects, designers and software developers.
Certainly, a lot has changed in the store's 25 years. Definitive Audio is no stranger to the pros and cons of changing times in the retail business, but it has managed to come out on top as one of the most successful independent audio/video retailers in the Puget Sound area. Today, it represents some of the top names in home theater and audio, including Meridian, Lexicon, Rotel, Sony and a host of others. This year, it was honored by Runco as the first dealer to break the $1 million mark in Runco sales in less than a year.
