One of my passions is high quality music reproduction, and the artisanal gear made to reproduce it. I am mesmerized by the invention and intricacy found in top of the line audio gear. It’s art! It’s furniture! It’s functional!
Useful industrial design should surprise and delight, and to my senses, the very best examples of audio gear embody this goal.
Like a Michelin star meal or a walk through Istanbul’s Spice Bazaar, it’s an exquisite combination of sense triggers: sound, sight, touch, and even sometimes smell.
I’m not able to keep every piece of equipment that comes my way, but I make sure to take a few pictures before sending them on.
