Dali Loudspeakers!

HFC319.test.dalifront-728-75I’m pleased to announce the arrival of the first of several offerings from the Danish speaker company DALI. I just got in the Lektor 2 bookshelves. WOW! Huge sound from a tiny speaker. Front ported for a true bookshelf design. I’m happy to say that in my quest for good value and outstanding sound, the Lektor 2 is a shoe in for my entry level speaker at just $475 a pair!

Shop will be closed February 4th-9th…

new-york-city-skyline-blue-largeI’m going to New York City!!! This is the first vacation without kids that my wife and I have taken in 7 years!! While I’m there, I’ll be attending John DeVore’s Monkeyhaus! A tour of the DeVore factory and hopefully Box Furniture. I’m also gonna kick it with Steve Mishoe at his shop In Living Stereo. I will be posting highlights of the trip here later. If you know of some cool places I should check out, let me know!
