MOON NORTH Listening Event

In honor of the MOON NORTH collection arriving at Stereo Exchange, we hosted a listening event presented by Todd Hurry, Head of North American Sales for MOON. It was a joy to experience the peerless combination of technological innovation, aesthetics, and quality of sound from the award-winning team at MOON.

Technics Turntables Have Arrived

We’re pleased to welcome three illustrious members of the Technics family to the Stereo Exchange showroom:

B&W 801 D4 Signature Tower Speakers

The Bowers & Wilkins 801 D4 Signature speakers have arrived at our showroom, and they sound even better than they look. Finished in California Burl Gloss (Midnight Blue Metallic also available), the 801 D4 Signature brings a stunning finish to B&W’s flagship loudspeaker. Extremely accurate musical reproduction in a carefully crafted design, beautifully finished to make an impact.

Stay tuned… The stand-mounted 705 53 Signature speakers will be joining the collection soon.

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.
