For just $75, you get lifetime access to all 8 videos below with invaluable knowledge shared by industry leaders and experts in home theater during our seminars and tech talks.

Watch and rewatch these videos at your convenience, whether you attended the event or not.

Each year I hear, “I wish you could bring MWAVE to my city.”

I get it. It’s a huge financial commitment to attend MWAVE.

With travel, food, hotel and a car rental, that can make attending MWAVE out of reach for your budget.

That’s why we’re bringing MWAVE 2024 to you (or at least part of it).

1. Exclusive access: Learn from the best in the business. You’ll hear from Brett Bjorkquist (MRKTMKR), Anthony Grimani (Grimani Systems), Walt Zerbe (CEDIA), Simon Spears (OSD Audio) and others as they share their experience and vast knowledge of home theater with you.

2. Lifetime Access: Yup, that’s right. You get access to the videos for life! Feel free to revisit the sessions anytime to reinforce your learning or catch up on what you missed.

3. On-Demand Convenience: Watch the seminars at your own pace, on your schedule, from anywhere in the world.
