I've visited the store a few times.

The owners are really friendly. This is NOT a snob stereo store but a friendly place where you never feel rushed or pressured.

Sorry, but I think it's pretty thoughtless to hold this event on election day. Shame on you!

I believe the point is to allow people to face the music at the polls, as it were, and then hear it in person. Unless the lines at the polls are twelve hours long, there should be plenty of time to do both. People in CA can also vote absentee - lots do - which frees up time for attendance.
