Crescendo founder Matthew Alterman's years of experience with high performance audio sales and custom home installation in the metro Denver and Boulder, Colorado area has shown him that consumers in the market for fine audio and video products are also seeking informed, trustworthy personalized service. Prior to his relocation to Colorado, Matt worked with his father at their legendary high fidelity audio store Alterman Audio in New Orleans. These experiences inspired him to start his own brick and mortar store in 2011.


Crescendo Fine Audio has since then been serving the metro Denver and Boulder, Colorado area, and sometimes even beyond the region, with a carefully curated selection of high fidelity audio and video products. Since 2014 Crescendo has been operating out of a comfortable, friendly, easy to access brick and mortar store in centrally located Wheat Ridge.

Crescendo provides exceptional service and support before and after the sale. This is essential with the increased complexity of systems, overwhelming amount of choices, and need for proper setup.
