Default Cochin goes High-Tech!

When I told people we were starting a store in Cochin, they looked at me incredulously.
"Cochin has nothing like that, you know" I was told. Why?

Kerala people are educated, well travelled, well employed and love their cars. What other sign are we waiting for?

Pure ecstacy for a car accessory lover. I'll show you the pictures now.

A look around the ground floor





Now the upstairs:

The upstairs is a car accessories and audio place, good by any international standards - this one applies to all of Team-BHP.







There's lots more, as you'll see.

Later in the day, I was joined by a few Members, who took a break from their busy schedules to be there, guys, thanks for coming.

First was Hydrashok, who looked like he was in shock.











All the world is a stage and Hydrashok is completely, The King of Audio.




Later we were joined by Excitable child Nikkibike and our very own resident, Speedzak.







A couple of home theatre demos later, everyone was pleased as a punch. Anytime any of you Cochin boys want to watch a movie in style, drop me an email and I'll arrange your own private theatre.

I hope you like the store, please do post your comments, both ICE and Non ICE guys (since there's eye-candy for others too)

This Sam is slowly moving over to the other side, for all he cribs about engine-vengine types.

That store has more wheels than speakers

Congrats Sam and WOW !! Awesome showroom. Very neat design of the racks (dont get me wrong here) sort of spaceship pods for the here and there.

Is this a JBL Owned and Operated store or a Franchise ( pardon my ignorance)

Also, I see some other car audio brands for demo Kenwood, pioneer and Sony. Are they also sold or to show which is the best Hu's also sold here? which ones?
