Sony Only was a staple on the corner of Northwest Glisan Street and Fifteenth Avenue for decades. People driving up from the Pearl District on Glisan towards the rest of Northwest Portland and the suburbs beyond knew that Sony Only was the place to get all of their Trinitrons, Walkmen, and Mini-Discs (remember those?). However, society has changed in the past few decades. We enjoy variety, and breadth of knowledge. For that reason, Sony Only changed with the times as well. Instead of being Sony Only and selling only Sony products, the store is now Encore Audio/Video, and it sells products from more than 35 different brands.
The greatest benefit of Encore Audio/Video is the convenience. It has all of the electronics that you would expect to find in a big box store such as Best Buy, but instead of trucking out ten miles into the suburbs to simply buy a new radio or headphones, you can instead mosey up Glisan Street to get the same selection you would at that place. As an added bonus, Encore Audio/Video is a local business, so with that you’ll be ensured that you’ll get attentive service and the peace of mind that you’ve helped to support the local economy.
While the store is no longer Sony Only, you can still see the remnants of that in some of its selection, such as its television department. Then again, if you want to buy a top-of-the-line television for your place, chances are that it is probably a Sony. Still, you can also get Samsung and Panasonic televisions here, as well. Beyond televisions, Encore Audio/Video has the rest of your home entertainment locked down. You can get home theater essentials such as amps, receivers, CD players, Blu-ray players, speakers of all shapes and sizes, iPod docks, turntables, and universal remotes at Encore Audio/Video. If it can be plugged in and hooked up in your house, Encore can help.
Encore Audio/Video is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
