just wanted to introduce myself and tell you about the Dealer event I had with Jonathan.
I have been working as a professional musician all my life. I grew up in Cleveland Ohio, I spent 17years in Los Angeles and returned to Cleveland in the late 80’s. My father was the very first audio dealer in Cleveland in the 50’s. I grew up fascinated with sound and music.
Two years ago I read the review Jules Coleman did of the DeVore Silverback. In that review Jules talked about your speaker cable. I was intrigued and contacted Jonathan re: his products. Jonathan sent a sample and I became a dealer. Slowly, I have brought in a good deal of Shindo and Auditorium 23 products culminating in the Shindo Garrard 301 system and your miraculous Solovox.
This speaker has clearly shown how other speakers are moving completely in the wrong direction.
The system we set up comprised of Shindo Sinhonia amps, Giscours preamp, Shindo 301, Sentec mono phono pre, Shindo interconnects and you speaker cable. We spun 78’s mono and stereo records all weekend. I have never heard a system connect me to the essence of music the way this system did. Words will not do justice to the sound we made. The Solovox flows with the emotion that live music always portrays. The weight, dynamics, power and purity of tone are mesmerizing.
I look forward to your other products and hope we can meet some day.
Best wishes,
