A new ear in our listening circle…
Between looking for a new location and our new listening companion at home, we’ve been very busy. While I’ll be sad to leave the loft area of mid-town on Washington Ave, the move will allow for daily store hours plus scheduled appointments. Hopefully we’ll be announcing news on the move soon. And thanks for all the real estate tips and putting up with my whining. Also stay tuned for an in-shop demo moving sale on selected items.
In other news….
Not long ago a most gracious visitor popped round for a visit, Vince Bruzzese of Totem Loudspeakers. It was quite nice getting to spend a few hours with one of the industry greats.

Matt Wilson Quartet, with John Medeski
One of the best shows of the Jazz at the Bistro season so far, besides the great Pat Martino in December, has been the Matt Wilson Quartet, with John Medeski. So good we had to go a second night…a happening band to be sure. Don’t miss the upcoming Christian McBride show, always a fun music night.
Speaking of upcoming shows, several on the horizon that we encourage you to hear are:
Richard Thompson, solo, at the Pageant Feb 19
Miss Sharon Jones, at the Pageant Mar 2
Pat Metheny Unity Group, at the Pageant Mar 9
Renee Fleming, solo recital, at the Sheldon Mar 15
DeVore Orangutan O/93′s
The DeVore Orangutan O/93′s continue to impress, quite a marvelous speaker when coupled with the right amp. Our floor samples of the O/96′s are finally coming very shortly, only several weeks away! I am very very excited about those. Stay tuned…
One last quick mention: we’ve been receiving many inquiries about the Line Magnetic gear, and yes, it also continues to impress. While quite nice out of the box, this is one line that improves by replacing a few of the stock tubes,and we’ve got experience with them now to make the proper suggestions. Okay, one more mention, in regards to LM….their CD player is killer! I mean killer. Did I say killer? For $1500 it just gives joy.
as suspected, Mozart put her to sleep…she’s much more of a Mahler afficionado like her owner..
