As Music Matters approaches quickly, everyone is getting amp’d – no pun intended – to see many of our long-term partners, friends, and customers!
This is my first Music Matters event as a Definitive employee. As I look at the list of people joining us and the amazing selection of equipment to be heard, it’s pretty impressive. As I look at the list of participants which include Wilson, GoldenEar, Meridian, B&W, Classe, Peachtree Audio, Ayre Accoustics, Transparent Audio, Linn, the Editor of Stereophile — where should I start?
I’ve decided my first stop will be the Wilson’s Sasha, named Loudspeaker of the Year by Stereophile. I figured this would be appropriate because it was the first speaker I listened to when starting at Definitive. Sitting down in our reference audio room, I closed my eyes and I was pretty sure Hootie and the Blowfish were performing just for me! Listening to Wilson’s Sasha speakers are always a treat and I jump at every opportunity to enjoy them.
I’m also pretty interested in hearing Meridian’s new DSP 3200 bookshelf speaker. This elegant design immediately caught my eye — I’m already fantasizing how they would look and sound in my own home. Rumor has it they produce a room-filling powerful sound, are less than $10,000… watch for a guest blog from Norm Steinke tomorrow for more!
I am sincerely looking forward to a visit with Doug Henderson and special guest Dr. John Dibb, Sr. Development Engineer from B&W. Hopefully you caught the guest blog “Music hasn’t only mattered to me, it’s defined my life” by Doug — I’m thinking he’ll have a lot to share!
I’ve been trying to figure out the digital music solution – which seems to be a complex one for many! Linn’s Gilad Tiefenbrun will be joining us from Scotland and speaking about the updated Akurate DS system.
Last, but not least, I’m looking forward to meeting Karen Sumner. Not only does she promise to transport us in a musical time machine (how can you resist that?), I’m intrigued about the Transparent Cables and Karen’s history in the industry.
I could go on, but I’m lucky to have the chance to experience it all! I truly believe, if you have an interest in music, whether you’re a musician or a listener, regardless of your favorite artists or what you play your music on — you should really attend this event.
