Richmond, BC-based Staub Electronics has been appointed Canadian distributor for Memphis Car Audio, manufacturer of car and marine audio products, including amplifiers, speakers and subwoofers.

Family-owned since 1965, Memphis Founder Arthur Fulmer created one of the first four and eight-track car stereos in the '60s, recalls Staub.

The latest addition to the Memphis product line is the Special Applications for non-traditional vehicles, including motorcycles, ATVs, and golf carts.

Alan L. Wurtzel, the former chairman and CEO of Circuit City Stores Inc., said the now-defunct consumer electronics retail giant ultimately failed because it lost its way and was unable to make the needed changes in time to survive the recession.

"I think Circuit City declined in three stages," said Wurtzel, son of Circuit City's founder Sam Wurtzel.

He cited a lack of focus from one of his successors, the inability to follow through on plans from another and a clash of cultures brought about by the last CEO.

Control4 this week announced that it will offer dealer training in more than 60 cities worldwide this year, in a tour lasting from March through August.

Rapidly expanding Midwestern CE retailer hhgregg announced Thursday that it has issued 3 million shares of common stock.
