We’re passionate about audio. Judging by the fact that you’re here, so are you. In our travels, our friendships, our studies and our listening we learn more about this discipline than we ever imagined possible, but there’s much further to go.
Yes…we’re Audiophiles and not about to try to claim we’re anything else. This is a hobby, a lifestyle, a discipline, an obsession and anything else you wish to make it. You might imagine you could play sax like Coltrane, guitar like Hendrix or sing like Jagger, but with audio, your art is recreating theirs’. And in the end, it doesn’t matter whether anyone else likes your sound more than you do.
We favor boutique audio products over the popular brand name products found in electronics stores. Nothing wrong with a Sony amplifier or Infinity speakers, we’re just more into gear built on a small scale, by independent designers you read about on the forums or online magazines frequented by our sphere of audiophiles.
We’re entering a golden age of audio. A convergence of matured digital processors and the computer is well underway, digital music will reach an apex with PCM 32/384 and DSD 5.6 files within 5 years and the Internet and shrinking electronic devices are making us all into potential musicians, recording engineers and DJs. Audio gear is better than ever before and breakthroughs and new technologies keep coming…it follows that these elements will eventually combine to produce a new era of amazing recording artists and we intend to be ready for it.
We hope you find this to be a place where you can derive value in your own audio adventures and we can learn from each other.
