Just enough to be dangerous

They say a little knowledge goes a long way. They also say having just enough knowledge to get things misunderstood is a danger.

Ours is a complicated endeavor. We interact with complex devices that most of us don’t understand. Yet, we’re encouraged to learn all we can to make informed decisions on what to buy, how to improve, how to wring the most out of the music.

I have spent much of my life trying my best to educate people. For the past 8 years, I have written one of these daily posts. On my YouTube channel, I have posted in excess of 1,000 videos answering people’s questions. Our loudspeaker genius, Chris Brunhaver is engaging with people on how speakers work. And over time, we will be ramping up our efforts to educate, inform, and bring a much needed light to those that find themselves in a bit of darkness.

I know it’s cliche to use the term just enough to be dangerous as I did in the post title. But, it’s not something I believe in. To me, even a little bit of knowledge is a step in the right direction. We as a community need to generously reach out a helping knowledgeable hand to those around us that desire to learn.

It is my belief that helping others learn by sharing our years of knowledge is not only the right thing to do, but it’s a critical component in an otherwise confusing world.

Ignorance on any level is not something beneficial to anyone.

I hope you reach out today and shine a little light for someone.

Peeking behind the scenes

Designing and building new high-end audio products is a long and detailed process, often requiring years of design and engineering.

It seems like members of our Hi-Fi Family really enjoy seeing behind the scenes of what it takes to craft those products and the people behind them. Whenever someone visits us for a tour (something that happens often several times a day), they remark how cool it is to meet the people behind the equipment.

Since we can’t all visit the factory, I really enjoy shooting videos that give you some insight into who we are and what we’re up to.

As we put the finishing touches on the new AN3 loudspeaker before bundling it up to play at tomorrow’s RMAF, here’s a short video from a few weeks ago when we were still hot and heavy into the final tuning stages.

Have fun!
