Cambridge SoundWorks wants to be speaker of the house, the car, and the computer. The company is a leading manufacturer of speaker systems for consumer use, including floor speakers and bookshelf models. It also makes home theater speaker systems, outdoor speakers, and surround sound units. In addition to its own brand, Cambridge SoundWorks markets audio and video items from such manufacturers as Samsung, Sony, and Toshiba, as well as products made by its parent company, Creative Technology. Steep discounting of consumer electronics contributed to its decision to shut down its 30-store chain to focus on online and catalog sales in 2008.
