luminary visiting SORAsound

May 24, 2009 :: Tags: :: 1 Comment

baba1my father is visiting for three weeks. he is 83 years old. he is a very good man, a great father, and i am very proud of him. he wakes up very early in the mornings and goes for a three hour walk.

i have a brother and a sister. i have not seen my brother (and most of my family) since 1978. i hope to visit iran this year and see him and the rest of the family.

the orange shirt is a gift from me. i love orange color, hence the custom made lamborghini orange DaVinciAudio turntable and achille castiglioni listening chair.

your warm thoughts

May 15, 2009 :: Tags: , , , :: 2 Comments

dear friends, i have been reading your warm and kind thoughts on audiogon (now removed from their website), audio asylum, and other sites. all, i can say is THANKS.

your support has helped us be strong and see the path forward. for that we are forever indebted to you.

so many of you have written to us that when a door closes, another opens.  a good friend/customer of mine from new orleans wrote “there is no way stopping the sun rise every day.”

so, thanks to you, we look forward to the sun rise each day; and we think of the open doors, and the great friends you have been to us.

i also want to emphasize that we bear no ill will against ZYX. we wish ZYX the best and thank hisayoshi nakatsuka san for the opportunity he gave us to work with ZYX and meet you.

nakatsuka san is a special person to us and has his place in our heart. frankly, this of course has made the current situation so much more difficult for us. at the end of the day, nakatsuka san is a good person and a skilled cartridge maker who has contributed tremendously to the analog world. for these, i will always recognize and respect him.

lyra cartridges

SORAsound now represents lyra phono cartridges. i have heard of lyra since the time i got in analog. i have heard highly of jonathan carr for the last few years and have come to know him a bit in the past few months. and i have known stig for the last few years. and hartmut of amazon audio had been pushing me to go for the line for so many years. why did it take so long? well, count it to my lack of experience and having mistakenly put all my eggs in one basket. now, we represent lyra and have all the intention of demonstrating to our audiophile friends how good the lyra cartridges are.
