We couldn’t agree more. You are invited to hear it for yourself in our listening room at The Velvet Mill in Stonington, CT where it’s paired with the EMT JDS Lime cartridge, choice of Lina Orange or Auditorium T1 Hommage SUTs and a number of pre-amps, power amps and speakers.
Call, text or email to set up a socially distanced listening session today!
After 15 years doing audio shows and marketing for Audio Note, UK, I took a year off, intending to establish a recording studio dedicated to making natural, minimally processed recordings of acoustic instruments playing jazz, folk, blues, bluegrass and classical music.
Somewhere along the way I borrowed a pair of Auditorium 755 speakers and a Shindo pre-amp and power amp from Jonathan Halpern of Tone Imports. Quick as you can say, "Bob's your uncle!", I had become an audio retailer, using Old Forge Studio as a dual purpose space.
It's all very exciting and more than a bit crazy . . .
