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.

Gluten free peanuts

Ever notice how some audio products advertise meaningless features? I can recall companies in our industry touting magnetically isolated AC power, low ESR caps on housekeeping circuits, and rhodium plated knobs.

Of course, we all want to place our stereo equipment in the best possible light. If we don’t it’s unlikely others will. But when we fluff up meaningless attributes it challenges our community’s trust.

I often wonder how many companies place the interests of community ahead of their own needs? I suppose the question’s a little like asking if politicians are more interested in humanity’s well being than their own chances at reelection.

But here’s the thing. The healthier our HiFi Family the likelier it is to grow and thrive.

And, isn’t that what we’re all hoping for?

This is not a normal post, but a PS Audio Newsletter that I thought appropriate to post. Buy a little and give a little to help a worthwhile charity.

Power the Performers

During the month of May, we (PS Audio) had a special on the Stellar Power Plant 3.  Get a great price and for every one sold in the US, we’ll donate $100 cash to Music Cares, the charity arm of the Grammys.

We are delighted to have presented Music Cares a check for $18,400 to help music creators, producers, recorders, stagehands, roadies, lighting people, and whoever is in need of some assistance during the pandemic. (We actually gave Music Cares a real check and not this big fake one Terri and Scott McGowan are holding).

It’s been one of our prouder moments in the company’s 50-year history to have helped the very people we depend so heavily on to craft our music.

In these difficult times, it’s music we increasingly turn to for relief and release from the pressures that have come to bear upon us.

Thank you to our PS Audio HiFi Family for your support helping music and musicians the world over.

On a personal note, may I ask that each and every one of our HiFi Family members continue to be safe? In the United States, the pandemic remains in full swing. We, as a nation, haven’t fared as well as many other nations yet there’s talk of easing restrictions, of letting down our guards, of getting back to normal. Of course, that’s what we all hope for, but as I write this, 1,000 American lives per day are lost to the pandemic with no end in sight. I need each and every one of you to be safe. Please.

You matter. You are family.
