"With my newest venture Como Audio in which the consumer will find audio products considered to be best in their class and of the highest performance."

Mr. DeVesto was also the Co-Founder, President, CEO and Head of R and D of Cambridge SoundWorks, a company he started in 1988 with Henry Kloss, the Audio Hall of Fame member and nationally acclaimed inventor, and later brought public. At Cambridge SoundWorks, he introduced the concept of factory-direct selling on a Web site (hifi.com), and proved that an audio manufacturer could be successful in factory-direct selling by offering the customer the highest quality audio products at the best prices, backed by outstanding customer service and money-back guarantees. His concept of selling factory direct to the customer became an overnight success, one that is widely practiced today with all manufacturers of audio products.
Tom DeVesto has a long history of working in the consumer electronics industry and Boston in particular. He introduced big-screen projection television to the mass market at Kloss Video Corporation and held various management positions at Advent Corporation. Prior to that he started and ran several retail operations selling audio products. Staying true to his love of radio and music, he currently serves on the Board of Overseers of WGHB radio in Boston, MA, and on the Board of Directors of WMVY radio on Martha's Vineyard.
