Asheville, Walnut Cove, Biltmore Forrest and Western North Carolina’s Audio and Home Theater specialists present Cane Creek AV and Paul McGowan – PS Audio, Intl.

We are special

Indeed. Audiophiles and music lovers, we’re different, special. We take care of each other, we are a community. A family.

For those watchers of my daily YouTube videos you may have noticed I haven’t mentioned much at all about how life has changed so rapidly. There’s a good reason for that, most of those videos were recorded earlier—like weeks earlier and back then, we weren’t thinking about it.

But, now we are.

Yesterday, here in Boulder, the snows were gently falling. It was a beautiful day and since I am not leaving the house I thought I’d hop up onto our deck and make a video. The video will tell you where we’re at as a company. How most of us are working from home, and the production and shipping people, along with our President, Jim Laib, our CFO, Keenan Haga, are working in the PS Audio mothership with as much space and care as is needed to keep them safe.

We are here for you. Our customer service, sales, engineering staffs are plugged in and working as if nothing had changed. Call 800PSAUDIO and you’ll be connected to a HiFi Specialist just like before—only this time there might be the sounds of a couple of kids in the background.

Hang out with us on the forums where Elk and I are working hard to keep it as fun and uplifting as we can. Listen to stereo. Enjoy being at home if you are, and do your best to keep smilin’.

Look, we’re going to get through this. We’re special, we care, we’re community.

We are here for you.

Music lovers and audiophiles
 

If audiophiles are music lovers, how come most music lovers aren’t audiophiles?

I guess a love of music doesn’t somehow automatically equate to a love of listening to it over high quality home audio reproduction equipment. But, why?

Maybe the same question, applied to a different set of observations, might help illuminate the answer. For example, take my second favorite subject, food.

If gourmets are food lovers, how come most food lovers aren’t gourmets?

Perhaps the answer lies in the obvious between these two observations: both music and food can be enjoyed on any number of levels. Many music lovers are happy with a pair of earbuds. It’s music, right? Or take the person eating a McDonald’s hamburger, hardly gourmet, yet still enjoyable to many.

I find audiophiles a wonderfully small group of special people. People who not only enjoy music but know and care about the differences between good sound and bad.

We’re a special group and proud to belong.
