Barrel Speakers Have Arrived!

Here are a few photos of our new line of Barrel Speakers we just installed yesterday.
These “Basso” subwoofers and “Festa” outdoor monitors were custom finished in “Rustic Walnut” to match the surrounding wood work. Barrel Speakers are a brilliant idea and look gorgeous, they have definitely arrived!

State-of-the-Art Intelligent Motorized Shades

We have recently partnered with a new and innovative company: POWERSHADES.

This company offers both indoor and outdoor shade solutions unique to the industry. The shade control systems are very flexible offering several options including voice commands. You can even add small solar panels behind the shades that will trickle charge the lithium batteries that power the operation.

The quality is exceptional and their pricing compared to their competitors is very reasonable.

Recently our staff went through their training. So we are now ready to help you dim your media rooms and potentially improve your room’s acoustics at the same time.

I heard the Sopra 3’s and I was blown away!

5 stars

“Over the years I’ve listened to a number of high-end speakers. Although I heard a few that I thought were just as good, I never found speakers that were dramatically better. Then, on a visit to Nuts About Hi Fi, I heard the Sopra 3’s and I was blown away! They are significantly better than my beloved KEFs! They have an amazing presence, clarity and naturalness, combined with a precise soundstage that allows you to hear the interactions between the dozens of different instruments in a symphony orchestra in impressive detail! They also do a wonderful job with jazz, folk, rock, world music and the other genres that I’ve sampled. After auditioning the Sopras, I had to have them even though they were over the budget I had set. I’m quite happy that I did because the SOPRAs have taken me a major step closer to the elusive goal of faithfully reproducing the experience of a live performances at home. Although I doubt that recorded music will ever totally capture the experience of attending concerts in person, with these speakers, high quality electronics, 4K video and DTS-HD audio I am finding that it’s possible to come pretty damn close!”

The new issue of The Absolute Sound magazine includes an article and review of one of our favorite components, the Mimas Integrated Hybrid Amplifier from Aesthetix.

Reviewer Neil Gader writes:

“For me, the Aesthetix Mimas is the very definition of what I am seeking today in an integrated amplifier—unalloyed transparency and musicality served up with rich reserves of power.”
