Frequently Asked Questions

How long has ListenUp been in business?

ListenUp's story is one of enduring passion and continuous evolution. In 1972, founders Walt Stinson and Steve Weiner opened their first store on Pearl Street – a location that still remains. Beyond being a destination for high-end audio equipment, ListenUp became a curator of sonic experiences, supporting over 300 live radio broadcasts and capturing legendary performances by artists like Muddy Waters and John Prine. This earned us the esteemed title of "Sound By ListenUp," establishing our reputation as Denver's foremost audio experts.

While rooted in our Pearl Street origins, ListenUp has transformed into a multi-location tech haven, offering smart home solutions, home theater systems, and cutting-edge audiophile equipment. Seamlessly adapting from vinyl records to streaming platforms, we maintain an unwavering commitment to quality and customer service. Today, ListenUp stands as a trusted Denver institution, welcoming audiophiles and tech enthusiasts seeking personalized expertise and a meticulously curated selection of top-tier gear.
