Command Performance Grand Opening (with photos!)


I stopped by Command Performance AV this week, just to peek in on Jeff and see what he’s got in store for us this weekend. I might have taken a few photos.

Anyway, in case you missed the announcement earlier this week, the grand opening of Command Performance will be this Saturday, November 8th, from 11am-5pm at their new location at 115 Park Avenue, Suite 2, Falls Church, Virginia 22046.

We will have a special demonstration by Irv Gross from Constellation Audio.  Constellation is known for their high-end electronics, which have been favorably reviewed by the press world-wide.  At our event, Constellation will make their first public (non-show) demonstration of their more affordable Inspiration line.  We will show the Preamp 1.0 ($9,000) and Stereo 1.0 Amp ($10,000).  We will also demonstrate the Virgo II Line Stage with DC Filter, Centaur Mono amps, and the Argo integrated amp from the Performance Line.

You will also have the opportunity to hear other brands, including Magico, Neat speakers, VPI, Arcam, and Musical Fidelity.

In addition to the demonstrations, come by for:

  • Special sale prices on all cables and accessories
  • Door prizes
  • Finger food

Our new address is 115 Park Avenue, Suite 2, Falls Church, VA 22046.  We are at the intersection of Park Avenue and Maple Avenue, in the same building as Town and Country Realty, one block from the State Theater and directly behind the CVS on Broad Street (Route 7).  We are conveniently located near Routes 495 and 66 as well as the East Falls Church metro stop, and we are not far from our old location.

Got some time this weekend? You should go check out the new showroom, say “Hi” to Jeff and Irv, give Bella a pat, and generally get your groove on. Jeff is going to serve some light refreshments and spin some records.

A good time will be had by all ….
























  1. I just got back from the opening. The down side (for ME) was that it was so busy that it was hard to get a good seat or listen to your own music (the store’s otherwise admirable commitment to servers and HTPC did not help in this respect–it was often not as simple as plopping a CD in the tray and hitting “play”). OTOH, on the up side (for THEM) it was so busy that it was hard to get a good seat, listen to your own music! All things considered however, it was great to see a nice turnout for a great event (and their cookie selection was varied and delicious).

    In any case, the gear was so enticing and the staff so friendly and approachable, I will certainly make the trip back (from Maryland) when it comes time to make over my system. Thanks Scott for pointing out this opening and thanks Command Performance for facilitating my addiction of choice.

  2. Very cool! I love the AURALiC Taurus and am currently saving up for one. I will have to talk to these guys when I have the cash. Great stuff, Scot!

  3. Are those DeVore O96 or O93 speakers? I thought he wasn’t going to carry them anymore and that you bought the O96 demos?

    • Before he started looking at brick-and-mortar stores, I scored his demo pair of O/96 loudspeakers — I kinda fell in love with the finish, and Jeff was looking to bring the newer model in anyway. Got lucky.

      But to answer your question, yes, those are O/93 loudspeakers. According to Stereophile, they’re Class A. Unlike the merely-mortal [snort!] Class B speakers I have.

  4. Well done Jeff. the store layout looks incredible. A great addition to the DC scene where some great brands (constellation, magico, audia flight ….) now have a truly competent dealer
