The Home Technology Specialists of America (HTSA) announced Monday that Leon Shaw of Audio Advice has been elected president of its Board of Directors for 2015. He succeeds Joe Barrett. 

At its Fall Conference in Chicago, the Home Technology Specialists of America (HTSA) presented its annual vendor awards, and the big winner was Sony. Sony was named Vendor of the Year, while its 4K projectors were presented with Best Video Product honors. 

CE retailers and integrators interviewed at the HTSA Spring Conference in Scottsdale this week were just about unanimous in their positivity about their business prospects for the coming years. 

Barrett's, the Chicago area custom technology company, will host an unveiling of its new design center next Wednesday. 

Barrett's Home Theater changed its name last May to Barrett's Technology Solutions. But for six full months after that, the name was about the only thing that had changed. Retail CE products still took center stage in the store, with design, installation and other offices relegated to the perimeter.
