ANAHEIM, CALIF. — Home Entertainment Source
(HES) has added nine more manufacturers to its
vendor roster.

The additions include Savant, Planar/Runco,

The specialty A/V buying group, a division of

behind these brands cannot be underestimated —
these manufacturers are the best in the business
and will allow dealers to offer more complete solutions
to their customers.”

“We are adding more and more new members,
new programs, and new manufacturers and are excited
to continue to grow and offer our members
the most comprehensive programs, products, and
support available from any consumer electronics
buying group,” said Jim Ristow, the group’s executive
VP.

group dedicated to the independent A/V integrator
and retailer. It provides specialized pricing,
merchandising allowances and rebate programs to
its members, while leveraging the clout of parent
organization BrandSource to provide a wide range
of general business services.
