Bowers & Wilkins Listening Event

Thank you to everyone who joined us for last week’s special listening event featuring the Bowers & Wilkins 801D4. Pairing the stunning B&W 801D4s with a dCS DAC, McIntosh electronics, and Transparent Cable XL interconnects was a vivid experience, complemented by some engaging conversations.

Welcome Bob Herman!

Bob worked for 30 years at the legendary Lyric HiFi alongside the famous Mike K and Lenny Bellezza.

A huge thank you to Lenny for sending him our way!

We’re thrilled to have Bob aboard with his unique experience and wealth of knowledge in the high end world.

A few words from Bob:

I’m Bob Herman.

I’ve been in the high-end audio business for almost 40 years, starting at Sound By Singer in the 1980’s, and later at Lyric HiFi from 1990 until 2021.

I’ve been a dedicated audiophile since high school and have owned myriad high-end turntables, tonearms, cartridges, CD players, DAC’s, preamps, amps, speakers, cables, etc.

Extensive brand experience includes McIntosh, Bowers & Wilkins, Simaudio/Moon, Sonus Faber, Rega, VPI, dCS, and many others.

Although I do stream music from the ‘net and play CD’s, my heart belongs to vinyl. Nothing sounds as natural and as realistic to me.

I’m always thrilled at the chance to help people build a great sounding audio system that not only meets, but exceeds their expectation.

Moon by Simaudio
We have added their new 860A v2 Power Amplifier to our reference area. It’s astonishingly good and has no design connection to the original 860A, but a lot in common with Simaudio’s top of the line Moon 888. We think it should have been called the 868!

NY Topliner Camp

This year we are pleased to announce that we are sponsoring NY Topliner Camp. This burgeoning new program emulates the process of a record label songwriting camp, pairing songwriters and producers for a two-week creative experience. Their ultimate goal is to stimulate development of new and emerging talent, while building a community of passionate musicians and industry professionals.

When the folks at Topliner reached out to us we were inspired by the concept, and energized by the excited response they’ve received during their first few years in existence. Much like their community of creatives, our community of audiophiles is, at its heart, born from a love and great respect for music. It’s exciting to see an organization fostering musicians and building a program for them to thrive. We’re thrilled to be able to support NY Topliner Camp, and look forward to watching them continue to grow.

The Topliner process consists of three main events: A kickoff, a halfway point built around industry feedback, and a final showcase. The final showcase will take place this Thursday, 3/14, and you can secure your spot here
