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!

I'm always reachable by cell 512-784-8282 and by email brian@whetstoneaudio.com

It's been a long wait but Derek Gilligan has been working around the clock to get the X2 on the streets. I'm taking PRE ORDERS NOW. Half down and I'll order you some. The X2 will be $2495 in your choice of finish. Walnut, Cherry, Rosewood or Sycamore. Whetstone Audio is the only venue for Kudos Loudspeakers in the US at this time. Dealers please contact me if you want to pick up Kudos for your shop. If you don't know, Kudos are a small Loudspeaker company from Durham, England and go VERY well with most brands, most notably with Naim. They use the highest quality drivers including the Seas Excel and Crescendo tweeters.

Vic, you will be missed.

We have lost one of the best songwriters of our time. After many suicide attempts over the years, Vic was successful on Christmas Day. Thanks for the tunes Vic! Hope you have found the peace you were looking for. Wish you had found another way...
