With the diverse product line of Metra Home Theater, Nationwide retailers and HTSN custom installers will have easy access to solutions for their sales and installations. We look forward to a great partnership with Metra."

The excitement from Metra Home Theater Group is equally high, as expressed by MHTG General Manager Jessy Crabb, “We’ve built our reputation on providing reliable high-tech products to connect home theater and audio systems of every budget. From retail solutions designed to get attention in your store to installer-friendly products engineered by and for custom integrators, Metra Home Theater Group is excited to now offer our products to HTSN and Nationwide members.”

The immediate launch of the partnership will be an asset to the group’s members during the busy holiday season.
