Our History  

System Music Warehouse was established in 1994 by popular DJ and club promoter, Barry Boothe. Barry got his start as a DJ when he was just 15 years old, as the founding member of the TKO Sound Crew. Barry (TKO) began DJing school dances in the early 80s, before moving on to popular radio shows and packed nightclubs. By the end of the decade, TKO was a well-known brand in Toronto, making Barry one of the most prominent DJs and promoters on the club scene.

By the early 90s Barry focus had changed; he liked the idea of owning and operating his own business. After much research and brainstorming, he came up with the idea of opening a DJ store. With just the equipment from his garage, Barry opened System Music Warehouse on February 1, 1994, making it the first DJ store in Pickering. 
Barry’s vast experiences in DJing and sound have enabled System Music Warehouse to be the most knowledgeable and complete solution for its customers’ audio needs. Our exceptionally knowledgeable staff are DJs and producers themselves, and continue the high standards of customer service that Barry and System Music have established for over twenty years. You can visit other stores, but Remember...Nobody Beats the System!
