Tucked away among Wafi’s premium fashion outlets and boutique stores is G&M, a dedicated dealer of such high-end brands as Bose audio and Thomson displays. The store makes two modest attempts at isolated listening rooms, but is rather too cramped and basic to put upmarket kit properly through its paces.
Nonetheless, the range of Bose speakers is admirable and the all-in-one Bose lifestyle systems prove consistently popular with punters for good reason – built around miniature cubic speakers smaller than your fist, the minimalist technology will satisfy audio buffs and the terminally house-proud alike. In November, G&M also launched a 145 sq m Bose display centre opposite the Hamarain Centre in Deira.
As much an education as a shopping trip, the customer can see, hear and feel the quality of the products and understand what a typical installation would cost. This outlet is more suitable for businesses than the average punter.
