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.

Acoustic Backdrop

A Work of Art – Our Rear Reflection Diffuser Panel

In our main listening room today, we installed a custom made rear reflection diffuser panel. The artist, Mr. Jim Armeni, has been a good friend and client of ours for several years. Jim is a true audiophile and has been experimenting with many forms of acoustic treatment. His personal listening room is one of the best I’ve had the pleasure to experience.

This sound-wave inspired panel literally transformed the rear reflections in our showroom. As many of you are aware, reflections off walls, ceilings and floors can dramatically affect the way a sound system performs.

Thank you Jim for a beautiful and well-executed addition to our room.

Kaleidescape

Kaleidescape – the Ultimate Home Movie & Concert Source

What is Kaleidescape?

Think of it as a totally uncompromised movie library which allows you to get the absolute best performance from your Home Audio/Video system.

When people purchase and stream movies off of Netflix or Amazon and others, there is no doubt they can look and sound pretty good.

Or so I thought.

We recently invited Danny from Kaleidescape to our showroom to demonstrate their new flagship line of products. He spent an hour explaining why their technology is better than anything else available today. The downfalls of streaming movies and concerts over the internet is that they require significant compression in both the sound and visuals. He made a very convincing case for why people who want the best will want to have Kaleidescape.

Later we moved to our home theater for his demo of the new Strato Player.

We watched a few minutes of a female action-movie called “Lucy” streaming on Amazon through our top of the line Roku player. Then we switched to the Kaleidescape Strato Player and cued up the same movie. It was immediately one of those “Oh my God” differences. Not just the amazing picture quality difference, but oh the sound too. I bought it on the spot and we should have it here in our showroom by Saturday for demo. I want to invite anyone who is interested in getting the very best quality from their Home Theater to please allow us to demonstrate this amazing accomplishment.

I have to warn you, you are going to want it too.
