Summer FUN !
Just as we are getting ready to roll out our 1st week's vacation, we are nip tucking our many new arrivals for your listening pleasure.
When we say new, you folks should be asking how many ? We should be saying, open your eyes and start counting. We have been inserting new lines as well as new gear that one can only attest to our capacity to invest in our company and yes, with our clients' hunger to see brand new lines and gear. We are investing far more into our operations and clientele than what we can see and hear anywhere else at National levels. Don't worry folks, all bought and paid for, the banks do not own us at all.
Let's start with the simple. New TARA Labs cables will see the light of day. Tara Labs and Nordost are base lines in the last year or so. Brand new DRACoustic cables that just came out and lets not forget brand new Neotech cables at the upper echelon levels are in and burning in. The latter, the new NEOMOI level cables that I happen to be extremely enamored with, extremely impressed and yes, even blown away ( I will explain why face to face ) soon to be on display.
On the more serious side of things, we have now introduced the Cary 600 CD hybrid player ( 6,500.00 USD ) along side our Moon EVO amplifiers on actual display. Who says top notch CD players are dead !
Roksan Audio will be seeing the light of day here at SPI , from the K 3 series to the Reference Blak series. Something for everyone. Reasons behind this introduction is simple : We were awaiting things to happen here and we needed to replace some of our previous line ups with a 5 star purest 2 channel company. This was 7 months in the making. Now its time to introduce. What else would one expect from us. Welcome Roksan !
Our Jean Marie Renaud Cantabile Jubilee are now ready for demonstration ( 6-7,000.00 CDN ). What is not ready for demo are our JMR Abscise 50th Jubilee model ( 8-9,000.00 CDN ). Both are pictured on our website. What is not pictured is our JMR La Folia ( 2,400.00 CDN ), the JMR Bliss replacement. As stated before, these La Folia's do take in performance on the above mentioned models in spirit and temperament.
Our Jean Marie Renaud Eutrepe Supreme ( 3,900.00 ) are now fully ready and burned in. In contrast to the above models, this models prefers emotions over neutrality. They are, as in the Bliss, clearly an emotional speaker. On display and ready to go.
The Abscise models are being introduced in September 2017, a special event.
More on the way with speakers, we did introduce right before the flood waters affected yours truly, yes, our Magneplanar models. Again, pictured on our website. Something in the bigger models will soon follow. These present special considerations where shipping and delivering are concerned, but we have bitten the bullet anyway, and yes, some have sold already.
Coplands arrived in March, some of our samples had to burn in for a month, more too follow. But the amplifier is busy turning heads. July is the month for Copland with REVEL speakers.
We are equally happy to reintroduce Acoustic Solid tables. German made and yes some of you will remember that over 10 years ago, we further sold these. The American supplier past away and it took some time to be relayed to a Canadian network. We are offering a Special edition model for a very limited time, we have it on display.
Many have taken note during our Nordost show May 6th, that what was fronting the show was Volent 3.5 speakers ( 28,000.00 ), that blew away the crowd, but also we made sure to add our TRIGON line up. Its not an accident that we used this very line as amplifier, the TRIGON Energy ( 5,600.00 ). Sim Audio DAC and TRANSPORT ( approx. 5,600.00) was used on this set up. All that attended gave us positive feedback More TRIGON gear that is new additions will to be added very soon this later summer.
Our Audio Note systems will soon be delivered, new speaker models to replace the one sold this year, some back up models, new finishes, new 1/2/3 level components in both colors. We have just introduced 4 Reference level Audio Note pieces for public viewing ( each starting at 10,000.00 and above ), all were and are awaiting for what is in effect our Reference replacement speakers ( between 5,000.00 and 13,000.00 ) for this AN level gear. Starting point for this Reference gear is 10,000.00 per and up for what is and what will be on display.
Our Line Magnetic CD player was just named one of the top candidates as best sounding. It was compared favorably to top 2-3,000 Cd players. We have this on display. Not to mention that we have several of their amplifiers on display and stock.
As this is being written, we can vouch that we have not worked what is a seminal line in speakers that we have basically just started, and that one is :.
The REVEL, what many know is that it's beyond reproach. Clearly one of the premier American line ups and a very new line for us. Burn in did take some time ( and being very busy both with clients and our saturated burn in schedule did not help ! ). As of now, these are all burned in and being honored for the duration of the month of June and July.
We are looking at introducing the Monitor Audio NEW silver 6th gen series. Later this summer we should have those in.
We are also looking at another tube line, real high end, real esoteric... but ha ha ha, cant say until later dudes. Will this be driving our JMR Abscise show in early autumn.
We have introduced 3 van loads of very high end gear from my home, with at least 3 more van loads to come this summer ( Sorry Kris !!! ). Despite being caught off guard with water issues at home, our push into establishing a " super wow " beachhead for my enterprise has been for lack of a better term, relentlessly forward, despite having one hand ties behind my back.
At this time, we are being kept very busy, please bear with us if we missed the ball with one of you, we will come back and make up more than enough. We are equally about to let our social medias go with exception of one media, our stats show they are irrelevant, and furthermore, that our clients and fan base prefer our website 99 to 1. Actual stats folks, not even make believe !!!. Life goes on folks and for this summer, be good, stay safe, all of you.
PS : I am officially back full time with my crew.
Your SPI team has prepared our summer months for our client. Peruse our website or call us for more details.
Our Steve has in effect his last system for this summer. A mix of Cyrus 1 New amplifier, Magneplanar speakers, and so on, refer to our Steves room key. Steve's room will restart again this coming October.
Our summer Saturdays are starting effective now ( where we close at 2 pm, unless shop is occupied ) as well as key line ups that will be highlighted for our clients and friends for the summer months.
Lastly, changes to our website are being pushed through during the summer months. We are striving for a streamlined and more efficient website. Changes have already begun.
Lastly, your SPI team would like to share our well wishes for a happy and safe summer season with your family and friends. Have fun in the sun, we will all see you soon.
Come visit us the old fashion way.
It will surprise no one when and if we say our nearly 3 years old social medias cannot even muster enough volition to arise at ankle level of our long established and active website. We do see promise with Twitter as our newest member, as we can aim local.
This being said, we have noticed our client and fan base particularly preferring our website. When my various team members and I started this operation 25 years ago, from the ground up, not one of us would have thought that these medias were complimentary to our beloved SPI. As a matter of fact, most available medias are not.
These are the times for efficiency as well as re-committing back to what really works in our unique brand with our upcoming new website. We trust that our clients deserve better, and we will commit to better streamlining of our medias. We trust our clients will much prefer our less is better approach where social medias are concerned.
