  • On the move

    I'm excited to announce that I have joined the good folks at Music Direct, managing their new showrooms and as chief analog setup guy. About two years ago Music Direct moved to a much larger facility in a nicer area on the north side of Chicago.

    We currently have two showrooms and an open area for browsing records and checking out special deals. We're getting ready to open the showrooms to demonstrate really cool gear such as Aurender, BAT, Focal, Koetsu, Lyra, Marantz, McIntosh, Shunyata, Spiral Groove, Vandersteen, VPI, and much, much more. Showroom hours will be announced on our website and in our Soundbytes newsletter. Special demonstrations, seminars, etc. are in the works.

    It's a wonderful challenge, but does doing what you love ever really seem like work? Come for a listen.

        They are probably the future. Good luck. My dealings with the company have always been positive, whether at a retail or corporate level.
