Avant Newport 2015

by Danny Kaey on June 02 '15

So it begins… Newport 2015 is about to hit us, alas, we were invited to a small gathering at Maier Shadi’s The Audio Salon in Santa Monica, CA for some apéritifs of the musical variety.

Maier has been LA’s premier read exclusive audio destination for the better part of a year now and is amongst many others, a dealer for Wilson Audio Specialities.  Featuring WA Alexias, Constellation electronics and Transparent cabling, we were delighting in some of the music choices Michael Fremer brought along for the ride. Nice music, nice vibes, what more could you want?  That is of course the secret call sign to SAT’s (Swedish Audio Technologies) all new reference tonearm made of multiple layers of carbon fiber and some overall exquisite engineering.  While the price is of course commensurate to the performance ($30k US), I can’t think of any other arm that comes even close to approaching the herculean engineering effort that went into the design of this arm.  Sound?  Stunning.  For inquires, Maier Shadi is your US reference point.

Some more pictures from the event… See you at Newport!

REVIEW: Tudor Heritage Chrono Blue from HODINKEE on Vimeo.



Hodinkee does their usual and reviews the latest Tudor watch to hit stores, fresh off Basel's watch show. You may have heard, Tudor (Rolex's sister brand) is well on its way to making a major push and come back tot he US market. Personally, I dig the Tudor brand and what it represents: Rolex manufacturing quality and hipper styling yield classy super high quality watches. Stay tuned for much more Tudor action. A+++
