Naim Mu-so. Amazing audio goodness in one very elegant package. Sight+Sound!

The new Naim Mu-so. A glorified speaker sound bar? Hardly. It’s an all-in-one killer new product that’s hard to fully appreciate without seeing and hearing. Yes, sure it’s a sound bar speaker that is wireless, but it’s also all Naim electronics, built into this one sleek unit. It’s a top notch wireless music system, that is reminiscent of their flagship statement system, but as a more affordable simple package. Six custom speaker drivers controlled by probably one of the most gorgeous volume controls we’ve ever touched (And you’ll probably be enticed as well to touch it). This is a product that is equal in both sight and sound! We’ll have more information here soon about it, but for now… you can read more about it at Naim Audio’s page here, or read a couple reviews here and here. We’ve got one on the floor to hear and see, but this thing is already becoming such a hot ticket item that demand is constraining initial supplies. Come in today and give it an audition!


Spendor D7 Loudspeakers hit all of the right notes with Stereophile Magazine

“The D7 is one of the finest loudspeakers I have had in my listening room.
Here’s an excerpt from a recent review in Stereophile Magazine of the amazing Spendor D7 loudspeakers we’ve been enjoying here at Stereotypes Audio (Portland, Oregon):

The D7s gave me the kind of imaging and image specificity I associate with small stand-mounted monitors. I take back everything bad I’ve written about floorstanding speakers. Read More »
