Focal Kanta No. 2

We just received our first pair of Focal’s new speaker line called Kanta.
This is the first model released with more to follow later this year.
The word Kanta according to “Behind the Name” means “beauty
and desire.” According to “Wiktionary” it means “to sing.”
Immediately after unboxing these last night, it was evident that they
are indeed beautiful, and after just a short listening session (even without break in) we could tell they definitely know how to sing.

Focal is positioning the long awaited Kanta line just above their Aria line, and just below their Sopra and Utopia lines.
They share Aria’s flax or linen woofers and midrange speaker material, as well as
Sopra and Utopia’s pure beryllium tweeter and much of the internal cabinet structure technologies.

They are available in several finish combinations. Click here to check them out.

Listening Room Upgrades

Yesterday morning I had the pleasure of helping two of our favorite customers dial in their listening system. We recently upgraded their speakers with a beautiful pair of Focal Sopra 3’s.

Because of the large room volume we also installed a stereo pair of JL Audio F113 subwoofers to fill up the low frequency to allow for a huge believable sound stage. We also replaced all their cabling with Nordost Heimdall 2 series.

What fun it was getting the speakers placed perfectly and then experimenting with dialing in the subwoofers. When we were done we all decided it sounded as if we were at a live concert. Thanks you two!

Anniversary Special – Nordost Audio Cables

As you may already know, this is our 30 YEARS IN BUSINESS Anniversary.

I had a nice lunch today with my good friend Michael Taylor, National Sales Manager, from Nordost. He graciously offered us special pricing on all of the amazing Nordost products to help us celebrate.

So to keep things simple for the next 30 Days:

We are offering our customers 30% OFF ON ALL NORDOST CABLING.

So to recap…
30 DAYS, 30 YEARS and 30% OFF!

It took a couple of glasses of wine to come up with this. But seriously we have never been able to offer this level of discount. I strongly recommend taking advantage of this generous offer.

Speaking of wine glasses, I ordered a bunch of commemorative NUTS ABOUT HI FI Anniversary wine glasses for our good customers. “You know who you are.” Stop in and we will give you yours.

Thank you again Michael Taylor for all your support! Download this PDF for a catalog of all of Nordost’s current line of products and regular pricing.

Stay tuned for more updates.
I have more lunches scheduled.
