We have the new Spendor A6R speakers ordered and should be here any day. The new 2-way Spendor speakers feature a 18cm main drive unit with technology developed for the D7 speakers. We have those Spendor D7s on display in Rosewood finish and are ready to demo now.
We now have a wonderful pair of Dali Opticon 6 speakers in our Bamboo listening room. These speakers offer a lot for $2,500/pair, and represent a great value for the quality of music they produce. We’ve been enjoying them thoroughly with several different Integrated Amplifiers in our bamboo room, including our new NAD Hybrid Digital DAC Integrated Amplifier C368. The Option 6s have twin 6.5″ low-loss Wood Fibre Woofer, and combine a soft dome and Ribbon Tweeter module. We carry quite an extensive line of Dali speakers across all price ranges, including the Rubicon line (we have Rubicon 6s and Rubicon 8s on our showroom floor ready to demo). Here are reviews for the Opticon 6s here and here. Read More »

We have the brand new Moon by Simaudio Neo MiND Network Streaming Music Player in stock and ready to audition. This is an upgrade to the previous MiND unit with new Neo casework and an upgraded power supply. In addition to all of it’s original capabilities, they’ve added Bluetooth aptX audio support, as well as a new LED indicator front display to indicate both the current track’s sampling rate as well as the active input type. It comes in Simaudio’s half sized chassis. You can read more about it here.
We have a fresh new supply of the wonderful ProAc D20R floor standing speakers in stock and in our listening room ready to audition. The D20R is a nice complement to the D30Rs that we carry. If you love the natural mid-range that ProAcs get so ‘right’, then you’ll love the D20R and D30R, with their ribbon tweeters that blend seamlessly with the 6.5″ bass driver. The sound and the look of these speakers are simply gorgeous. D30R review here.
Stereotypes Audio of Portland, OR is excited to be carrying NAD Electronics, including the brand new NAD Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier C368! This is another wonderful All-in-one unit that can also be run with the BluOS app on your mobile device or tablet. It’s an integrated amplifier with a built in DAC, and the ability to expand its capabilities with add on internal modules (including the optional BluOS module). The unit we are demoing in our bamboo room is already sounding great. A lot of value for around a $1,000 (depending on add on modules). We will have more NAD products coming in soon and will post about them as they come in.
