Good Vibes was started by 4 music-loving guys in 1971. The company is still locally owned and operated; Steve Suderman, company president is one of those 4 guys. Mike Roy (1998) is store manager, sales coordinator and runs a DJ business on weekends—the man knows music! Jason Elliott (2001) is the lead tech for installation: whether satellite dish, over-the-fireplace TV, board-room conversion, in-wall/ceiling speaker systems, outdoor A/V, Dolby Atmos theater with projector--whatever you need integrated into your property, he’ll get it right and you won’t see the wires! Dawn Bowen (1998) is our administrator; she keeps us organized, tracks the money with the expertise of a CPA and manages to smile even when we make it difficult. Lindy Loschen is our Swiss Army knife; a US Army veteran does installations, sales, troubleshooting or whatever the job calls for. That crew plus a few more represent over 150 years of experience!
At Good Vibes, we’re passionate about making your home entertainment the best experience possible. It began as stereo gear, then portable audio, then car stereo (we invented Car Wars) but Sony TVs & Betamaxes changed the game. DISH came along in the ‘90s and we jumped on board and continue to be one of DISH’s biggest dealers in downstate IL both for residential and commercial installations. Ameritech Mobile was a big deal in the 90s—now it’s T-Mobile. HDTV took video to a new level…so the evolution continues right up to today’s Theater Systems, OLED & QLED 4K/8K Smart TVs, Home Automation, security, and 5G WiFi networking systems so you can stream it all. At Good Vibes you”ll get expert help, competitive prices on top-name electronics, professional installation so your system looks, sounds and performs as it should and service after the sale. No other store in the area does all that and the Big Box & internet companies don’t even come close.
