. <!-- #thumb --> I was on the phone with our marketing company Creativello in Seattle and trying to explain what itís like to be an Audiophile: what moves us, what motivates us, what really floats our boats. When I got to the part of turning the lights off and imagining you are in the room with the musicians, I struck a chord. Lori, our account rep, said ďThat brings back an old memory I havenít thought of since childhood. I think perhaps my father might have been an Audiophile, but I donít know. I remember he had a lot of speakers built in a special area of the house and connected to it was a reel-to-reel tape recorder. His favorite was to bring the family into the room, turn off the lights, and play a special recording he had of an old steam locomotive approaching far off in the distance. The train was on the other side of house, or so it seemed, and the recording was made right at the start of a thunderstorm blowing in. It was amazing because as the train came closer the thunderstorm intensified until the entire room shook with the sound of the train and the thunder and lightning, and finally it all went back to quiet as the rain left as did the train. It was as if the whole event happened right in the room with us. I will never forget that experience as long as I live. When we turned the lights back on we all had tears in our eyes, so real and visceral the experience. Do you think my father was an Audiophile?Ē

"Geek" this term is the earliest by Hong Kong's "audio equipment lovers" invention. About 50, 60 s, at the time, the power amplifier is bravery machine mainly. Since Hong Kong weather is hot, civil air conditioning in that era has not been popular, so every time they play equipment, enjoy music always get the full head big sweat, flushed and that is way comforting. A long time they claim is "geek" and the title also be accepted, become "audio equipment lovers" commonly known as. So I think I have the qualified called geek.

ďThe justification for a great music system is the same as for a great instrument: It makes possible a musical experience that cannot be duplicated by lesser meansĒ
My friend Jim McCullough who owns the Cello brand sent me that quote which reflect the philosophy his company and its products are based on.
To date I donít think Iíve read a more succinct explanation of why buy high-end and whatís in it for you.
We all understand that somewhere in the marketplace thereís always something better if you can just find it. Bringing the benefits of great musical performances into your home is something most of us cherish when we do find it.
Thanks to Jim for sharing that great thought.
