About Us

Our Vision, Then and Now

Ovation is celebrating our 30th Anniversary this year with a major showroom remodel, the introduction of new high performance stereo brands, new leading edge technology products, and new ownership dedicated to re-launching this iconic brand as Indy’s ‘go-to’ stereo store for music lovers of all ages, and as the place to go for electronic system design and expert installation services.  

Founded in 1986 by Gary McCormick, at its height Ovation grew to 9 stores with a well deserved reputation for selling premium stereo and video brands, delivering first class customer service and always showcasing the latest in home entertainment technologies.  Ovation was named to the Top Ten AV Retailers in the country ten times in twenty years.

In late 2015, Bob Poynter, Ovation’s new owner, noticed a gaping hole in the Indianapolis stereo store landscape such that most purveyors of AV services now concentrate solely on delivering custom design and installation contracting services at the expense of maintaining a fully functional showroom with dedicated music listening rooms where customers can sit back and really listen and compare to find the right stereo system for their musical tastes.

Propelled by his own passion for music and high performance hifi gear and his wonderful memories of shopping at Ovation as a young man, Bob purchased Ovation (after founder Gary McCormick's death) and has spent the last year working with Ovation’s seasoned team of stereo (and custom installation) experts to restore the brand to its former glory, and re-invent the Ovation showroom experience to be a fun, easy, no pressure and completely enjoyable stereo purchasing process. We invite you all to come play with us in our new showroom and share the indescribable delight of hearing your favorite music played on a first-rate stereo system.

Ovation also offers a full menu of custom designed and installed technology and entertainment systems for both residential and business customers with a particular specialty in dedicated home theaters, dedicated music listening rooms and wireless whole house music and entertainement systems. On any size job, you can expect on-time performance, high level workmanship and meticulous attention to detail.

We are not happy until you are happy.
