List of Advisors » Ethan


Hello, my name is Ethan and I'm an electronics addict. I've been offering tech support and now helping customers pick out new equipment to enjoy for over 9 years with Crutchfield. I've been obsessed with music, movies, and A/V gear since I was little. I really got hooked in 1989 when I heard my first high end system. My cousins had a 2 channel Bose sound system with a CD player. I had never heard anything like it. They owned one CD and I just sat there and listened to it over and over. I begged for and got my first CD player that Christmas. Since then I've been through a few home audio system. The latest is a Denon receiver with some Onkyo speakers and an Infinity powered sub. Movies and music both sound amazing.

I also got into car audio in my late teens. I installed some Pioneer speakers, a Pioneer CD player, and Pioneer amp that I purchased from Crutchfield. I loved their Catalogs and how they made it easy to choose the right equipment for your car and even show you how to install it all. I also purchased my then girlfriend and now wife, a stereo for her Birthday and installed that too.

I moved back to this area in 2002 and realized Crutchfield opened a call center here. Luckily they were hiring for tech support and I applied immediately. I just thought it would be great to work for a company that I had purchased from and loved for so long. For about 4 years I was part of our excellent tech support team and was able to help customers install and enjoy the equipment they purchased from us. I then moved over to phone sales for a few years and now help customers pick out their equipment via our online chat. Since working here I've tried to keep up with the technology personally by purchasing items that I use and love such as my Panasonic plasma TV, Playstation 3 which is used for games, Netflix, and Blu-ray movies. I also use a Pioneer navigation system in my car with some great Sound Ordnance speakers. I love being able to hook up my Galaxy Nexus Android phone to my stereo and listening to Spotify. I also use my Spotify account at work while I'm chatting away either with my boom box, or my Grado SR-80i headphones. If I can be off assistance with helping you pick out products to improve your music listening experience or movie watching experience then feel free to log into a chat session on our web site and ask for me, Ethan.
