Home Theatre Is Fast Becoming the New Standard in Canadian Homes

The Toronto Audio Video Entertainment Show Gives Toronto a One of a Kind Opportunity to See the Latest and Greatest Innovation In Home Theatre Technology and Design

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 15, 2013) - It's that time of year again when the latest and greatest innovations in home theatre, television and audio are on display for three days only at TAVES; the Toronto Audio Video Entertainment Show which takes place November 1st to 3rd at the King Edward Hotel in Downtown Toronto. Home Theatre is fast becoming the new standard in Canadian homes with one third of Canadian homes currently owning or planning to purchase a home theatre solution this year according to industry research group NPD Group. So if you're planning a purchase in the Home Theatre, TV or Audio categories this holiday season, TAVES is the show for you.

TAVES is THE one stop destination in Canada for finding what the latest and greatest innovations are in home theatre, television and audio technology that let you experience the full glory of movies, gaming and music. TAVES is specifically designed to give consumers the sneak peak at what is coming out for the holiday season mere weeks before the products are in stores. That means some of the most respected brand names in home entertainment such Sony will be showcasing the new PlayStation4 as well as Samsung who will feature their 55" Curved Screen OLED Television. The Samsung TV viewing experience allows viewers to watch a beautiful image together or to utilize the benefit of individualized glasses and audio that allow two people to watch different shows on the same screen. Samsung will be showing off the GALAXY Gear Smart Watch, a brand new product category that's bound to be very hot! In addition to visual entertainment, brands who are well known among true audio enthusiasts such as Bryston, NAD Electronics, ARCAM, Mark Levinson, PSB Speakers, Monitor Audio, Cambridge Audio, Focal Speakers and SVS Sound will be on display at TAVES.

"TAVES is a feast for the eyes and ears and gives you the chance to experience first-hand the latest innovations in high quality images and sound for your home," said Suave Kajko, President of the Toronto Audio Video Entertainment Show. "TAVES is also the best place to get all the pre-holiday "how to" advice you need on for creating the ultimate Home Theatre design, the best sounding music system and mobility integration."

TAVES offers visitors in person insight from some of the best tech gurus in the business including broadcaster Marc Saltzman who is delivering seminar demonstrations on the principles for optimal home theatre design and his thoughts on the "Home Theatre of the Future". Other seminars from industry experts will showcase the latest ideas and technologies for wireless integration from mobile devices; and home theatre that will let you take your favourite mobile experience and integrate it seamlessly into a state of the art home theatre environment.

If the move to home theatre has become standard for many it is nonetheless true that the pattern of who makes purchase decisions is shifting as well. Women are increasingly becoming the influential decision maker in consumer electronics purchase decisions. According to the Consumer Electronics Association in the U.S., women last year spent almost the same as men on consumer electronics ($668 vs. $727) and that 61 percent of women initiate or are influential in consumer electronic purchases.

"It's good to see that women are taking a lead role in what was once a male dominated aspect of home entertainment," said Kajko. "As we like to say at TAVES, it's time for the women to come down and bring their newbie husband or boyfriend and show him who wears the headphones in the house these days!"

As well TAVES is pleased to be able to display the new OLED Television from Samsung; and to demonstrate that the ultimate audio experience doesn't have to mean you're in your den or living room, Harley Davidson is going to be showing off their latest motorcycles that are decked out with the latest sound systems for the ultimate in open road cruising and touch screen controls that would make an easy rider envious.

"At TAVES you can experience some of the most innovative ideas in home entertainment, get a chance to win a television that's out of this world and get yourself a head start on planning your Christmas gift giving," said Kajko. "You can even plan to get yourself a Hog and be the first in your neighbourhood to hit the open road in style. When it comes to innovation in entertainment, TAVES has it all."
