First Fridays!

I want to say thank you to all my customers. Your support makes it possible for me to continue to represent products I am passionate about, and I love sharing my enthusiasm with you. I am so grateful to have this business and obviously couldn’t do it without you. I try to pay back with the highest level of customer service and hope I never disappoint you.

I want to announce a new event – First Friday here at Don Better Audio. The first Friday evening of every month, stop by, have a glass of wine, and check out what’s new. Our first event will be Friday, November 6th, from 6 to 9 p.m. I will be demoing the new Spec products including the GMP 8000 turntable, the REQS1 EX phono stage and RSA M3EX integrated Amp. These products got rave review from the press at the RMAF. From time to time we will have visiting reps here to talk about their products. A fun way to keep informed and get to know each other better!


RMAF & New Gear

I just returned from the RMAF. It was a great show. Lot’s of new equipment is now on order including the new DeVore Gibbon X full range speakers. Speakers will arrive at the end to October. One of the best rooms at the show. The DeVore/ Spec room included the new Spec turntable which will be arriving any day. One of the most musical turntables I have heard. The picture is with a EMT TSD15 cartridge and EMT arm going thru the new Spec phono stage. Driven by Spec electronics.

Late summer update

Spec GMP 8000Fall is coming and there are new products arriving weekly here. We welcome Primare electronics. The first pieces are the I-32 integrated amp with media board and the R-32 phono stage.

From Rega come the RX-1. RX-3 and RX-5 loudspeakers. The RX-1 is a stand mount 2 way and the others are small floor standing speakers with side firing woofers. Quality of finish is much better than before. Priced to be affordable these are the best speakers ever from Rega. On the floor and ready to demo.
