Welcome to F1 Audio

About us

My passion for music and electronics began early after receiving a stereo system for Christmas from my parents. I was hooked and soon on the path to upgrading in search of better sound. Years later, after working for a local hi-fi shop, I started JPaulsDesign. Working from home I began to sell and install home theaters and multi-room systems, but was destined to follow my true passion – music.

In 2015 I opened F1 Audio, my first brick and mortar store. Now in our 5th year, we have become Chicagoland’s newest and quickest growing home audio boutique. We pride ourselves on our friendly and welcoming atmosphere and taking the time to understand how we can best help you.

We welcome you to visit our beautiful showroom located in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago and we look forward to helping you build the system of your dreams!

Why choose us?


Founder of Krell in 1980, no name is more closely associated with high-end audio amplifiers than that of Dan D’Agostino.

Inspired by the vision of Alon Wolf, every Magico speaker is designed against the standard of perfect audio reproduction - live music.

World class audio and power connections by Transparent Cable create an unmatched you-are-there entertainment experience.

Home audio

We work hard to bring only the best brands into our showroom allowing us to design amazing systems across several prices.
