I often think about how fortunate we are to have such wonderful people in our lives. Customers who truly understand what we do and will invest their time and hard earned money to create something that is nothing short of an awe inspiring.
John and Kathryn started buying home entertainment products from us about three years ago. They were in the process of an extensive remodel of a beautiful home on Hood Canal which in another life was once a Bed & Breakfast. Because of their love of movies, we first helped them buy and install a JVC, Focal and Integra home theater system. As their remodel progressed, we integrated some very nice music components including Focal Chorus speakers and a Sooloos music server to provide quality background music for their living room, library and outdoor sitting areas.
From time to time John stops into our showroom to audition music systems in our main listening room. Needless to say he became intrigued with what was possible in stereo reproduction and decided to upgrade the home theater to approach a level of performance he now desired for stereo listening. He quickly fell in love with our Focal Stella Utopia Speakers and decided he had to have them.
Our only problem was is that they were a bit too big physically to fit the theater room. To fix this awful problem…. what does this man do? He decides to add a dedicated music room to this already extensive remodel project. I checked my notes, we first sat down at his kitchen table to start designing this room 443 days ago. Because of the lengthly county permitting process and other unforeseen delays, we are finally here unpacking and setting up this amazing system.
Here is a list of the products carefully selected to create this system:
- Clear Audio Master Innovation Turntable
- Aesthetix Rhea Signature Phono Preamp
- Krell Evolution Preamplifier
- Aesthetix Atlas Mono Block Amplifiers
- Sooloos MD 15 Music Server
- Nordost Cabling and Interconnects
Stay tuned for an update along with more photos as we need to finish setting up everything and allow it to break in and do some fine tuning with acoustic treatment.
