Sean Smollon

Sean Smollon, or Smo as we love to call him, says he grew up with music as necessary as water. He first fell in love with the music of his mother as she worked at home to its beat, and his uncle and aunt were also a huge inspiration, giving him a hunger for the history of music and the exotic genres behind it.

His first taste of hi-fi was as a customer of Lyric Hi-Fi, with a life-changing NAD and Boston Acoustics system. After a brief love affair with Wall Street at investment bank Raymond James, Smo got the audio bug again. He found himself climbing the ranks of retail with roles at MartinLogan and VPI, eventually leading him to Kevin Deal and Upscale Audio.

Outside of work, Sean loves escapades on screen from Sergio Leone, Clint Eastwood, Richard Pryor, Gene Wilder, and many more. He also loves overeating at underrated places while revealing to other patrons that his aunt dated David Bowie.

Born in New York, he currently lives in Princeton, NJ, with his two dogs Willy and Lucky.
