hans kortenbach’s home & atelier

August 17, 2009 :: Tags: , :: 3 Comments

arrived in amsterdam at about 8 a.m. after checking in the hotel (grand hotel amrath amsterdam), and a long shower to wake me up, drove to hans kortenbach’s home – thanks to a very good dutch friend of mine. had a great visit with hans and his wife kikie. and ate lots of delicious food.

visiting hans kortenbach’s atelier where he makes his musical affairs speakers is eye opening. so much so that i seriously encourage anyone who is considering the purchase of a pair of musical affairs speakers to visit the musical affairs atelier. you see the equipment, some modern, some old fashioned. all clean. everything meticulously organized. hans can explain how he uses each piece of equipment, and you can see him in action. you will see how he passionately and lovingly works on each step of making his masterpieces. seeing is believing. in this case, hearing is believing too. hearing musical affairs’ beautiful sound.

    Oh, nice you visited Hans, I was in his home and atelier a few weeks ago to order my audio rack. I think you do a good job in North America, i`m still waiting for the first review of the Musical Affairs speakers in the USA or Canada! Maybe Art Dudley of Stereophile loves this kind of speakers i think…..
    Greetings! Peter

    dear peter, thanks for the kind note. i wonder if you ate the very nice jam kikie offered me! if not, i feel more special 🙂
    my only regret is that i did not accept her kind offer to take a jar with me…
    on a serious note, i loved hans’s home, and simple music system while enjoying their hospitality. i have had been approached by some reviewers to listen to the speakers but it is so difficult to send them a pair and then arrange for pick up, delivery, etc. given we are a small business, i have never gone that route and have hoped that word of mouth would do the deed. maybe i should get more real! thanks again and please keep us posted on your audio rack and what you think of it.
