The Sound And Vision Group is the creation of two passionate audiophiles and music lovers, Nicholas Familari and Jason DeBono. Between them, they have more than 35-years experience in hi-fi design, sales and marketing.
The Sound & Vision Group’s mission is to be a showcase audio distributor for the world’s best audio brands, while providing best in class service and support.
Products deemed good enough for The Sound & Vision Group to distribute in Australasia, must meet and surpass non-negotiable standards.
Products have to have great sound and build quality. Above all they have to have style as well as substance.
The Sound And Vision Group ethos is:
“Only the best models and the best back up service for our clients will do.”
“I’ve lived and breathed quality audio most of my life. Now it’s time to share this passion and experience with others”
With a Masters Degree in Architecture, Nicholas specialised in the acoustic space of public and domestic buildings. His true passion however lies in hi-end audio and has worked at a leading Melbourne Hi-Fi specialist retailer for over a decade.
The son of professional audio journalist Peter Familari, Nicholas followed in his father’s footsteps, and was weaned on a steady flow of McIntosh, Audio Research, Mark Levinson, Krell and just about any other elite audio brand that passed through his father’s audio system.
Nicholas’s passion for quality audio equipment is now expressed in his goal of building a tuned-in, consumer focused Distribution Company.
“Nicholas and I bring different skill sets to our Sound And Vision Group. Whilst Nicholas is an analogue enthusiast, digital streaming looms large in audio’s future and my IT experience makes for a good fit”
Jason DeBono has been an audiophile and music lover for as long as he can remember, and played in bands and orchestras for many years. His move into audio distribution is he says, a natural progression.
Jason has over 25 years experience building and running his own companies, including an Internet start up, and now consults to corporations providing User Experience design solutions.
