Classic Stereo and Bekins

With more than 75 years of combined industry experience, Classic Stereo and Bekins are a dynamic duo of high quality audio equipment and expert service.

Founded in 1982 by two audio enthusiasts who wanted to provide the industry’s best products backed by the best service, the Classic Stereo brand has long been a household name for high end audio and video in West Michigan. In 1987, Classic Stereo was Audio Visual International’s Retailer of the Year – for the second time. In the 90s and 2000s the company was known as Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo’s foremost audio video experts, and home to the state’s best selection of high end audio and video equipment. The Classic Stereo name made an impression on West Michigan audiophiles, even after the brand closed its stores’ doors in 2008.

This prompted the owner of Bekins, a growing independent appliance retailer, to take a hard look at reviving the Classic Stereo brand. A certified CEDIA member since 1993, Bekins had become West Michigan’s preferred, award-winning electronics integrator in recent years, so opening a dedicated A/V electronics store made perfect sense for the quickly expanding company. In 2014, Scott Bekins acquired the brand and began building a new store for a re-imagined Classic Stereo. Bekins even recruited some of Classic Stereo’s original experts, who can be found educating customers on the Showroom floor today.

In 2015, Classic Stereo reopened as West Michigan’s most trusted high end audio/video experts, with more integration experience and capabilities than ever before. A sister company to Bekins, Classic Stereo shares its award-winning reputation with Bekins’ customer and family-centered values. All delivery and installation services are provided by Bekins’ professionally certified team. Classic Stereo’s history of generosity are carried on through Bekins’ community involvement and 10% giving commitment.

The new Classic Stereo network of manufacturers and in-house installation services are backed by Bekins’ sterling reputation as the best home integration professionals in the industry.

Today, Classic Stereo is rewriting its own story as it explores the future of audio and video technology.
