Glenn Poor's has always been a company associated with quality products and services.

It is our commitment to be the best - to be recognized as the leader in our field. Because of this philosophy we have rarely sold a product merely out of demand, preferring instead to recommend those products which we believe are superior in performance and will maintain an honest value.

  • Glenn Sr. and his new TV


    Our Humble Beginnings

    Glenn Poor’s TV and Radio was founded in 1949 by Glenn Poor Sr. and his son, Glenn Jr., to sell and service the new phenomenon, television, with an unusual emphasis on expertise, service and quality.

  • '50s Hifi shop

    1949 - 1969

    A HiFi Business is Born

    Over the following two decades, Glenn Poor’s sold a range of products dominated by television and music systems.

  • Home Theater


    Home Theaters!

    In the seventies, Glenn Poor’s created home theaters, by combining video tape decks, large screen projection television and audio components, and designing stores to showcase this new concept in home entertainment.

  • Wilson Family

    1980 - 2000


    Maintaining our focus on innovation, quality and service, we seek out and sell the most advanced and highest quality products at all price levels. Among the now-famous audio companies Glenn Poor’s has brought to its region are Balanced Audio Technology, Smyth Research, Dynaudio, Wilson Audio, Magnepan, Jeff Rowland Design, Mark Levinson, Apogee, Phase Technology, Ariel Acoustics, McIntosh, ClearAudio, Dynaudio, Evolution Acoustics, and Dunlavy.

  • Reference Room


    Continuing the Tradition

    We continue this tradition with the best, and best value HD and UHD video displays, digital surround systems, whole-house music systems, installations, and consulting. Change is the constant in business and industry. Especially in home entertainment we see how many of the established names in manufacture and retail of even the recent past are gone. Glenn Poor’s has been the exception by keeping up with the changing environment and focusing on serving its customers.

  • You
