07/31/2005 - Huppin’s Goes All Digital

Huppin’s Hi-Fi, Photo and Video, in business since 1908, has remodeled their long-time home from a crowded gerrymandered premises into a large, bright, inviting space. They have created big open areas with today’s colors – sand, tan, and burnt sienna. The sales staff is numerous and helpful. Along with many of the old walls that broke up the space, they have phased out all things analog. They no longer stock film cameras, photo paper, enlargers, telescopes, binoculars, etc. Instead there are all things digital. There are digital cameras with digital direct printers, paper for digital printing of photographs, and all of the accessories that form the dreams of digital photographers – amateur or professional.

Just inside the front door is an enticing display and demonstration of the Bose theater-in-a-box. The large screen and tiny but powerful “surround sound” speakers for this home theater whet the taste for the larger component based room-sized home theater demonstrated in one of the few remaining smaller rooms.

Video is dominant in the new Huppin’s. On display are over fifty screens with all types of technology – plasma, LCD, rear projection DLP, and even todays form of the venerable CRT. Size ranges from a 106” rear projection model screen to the 7” screen on a small portable DVD player.

Throughout the store, Huppin’s onecall.com is made easily accessible from several “always on” kiosks. Murray Huppin became the Inland Northwest’s e-commerce pioneer with onecall.com – a complete Hi-Fi, Photo, & Video store on-line. Onecall.com quickly became known to the world of electronics buffs as the place they could purchase top-of-the-line and state-of-the art equipment at attractive prices.

Huppin’s is still focused on the entertainment world and its close relatives. They have plenty of audio, video, digital cameras and camcorders, but they do not have computers, cell phones, or personal digital assistants. There are lots of new digital gadgets from the newly arisen markets such a satellite radio. Huppin’s has both automobile and the recently developed home units for satellite radio. They also sell the Hewlett Packard equivalent of the famous IPod, and other MP3 devices.

Huppin’s covers the territory of the casual consumer up to the professional – but as that group has gone increasingly digital, so has Huppin’s. For the professional photographer, Huppin’s has high end equipment such as digital Single Lens Reflex (SLR) cameras. For the amateur that just wants to take really good vacation photographs, Huppin’s has affordable “point and shoot” cameras.

Huppin’s, at 421 West Main, is the only full service electronics store in the Terabyte Triangle. For more information, visit www.onecall.com.
