A really erudite article about craftsmanship and value, and an appreciation of Ken Shindo and his work in the current Stereophile. (Available online. Stereophile’s website, and Art Dudley’s Listening #138). Shindo’s pre and power amplifiers are prime examples of how equipment should sound and look, and are constructed in the manner of heirlooms.
Pleasefeel free to add to the list ofof hi fi gear that should be regarded in this category:
Shindo of course, and Yamamoto. From Australia the products of Earle Wes
add as many as you can think of including controversial small businesses like Note Perfect, Black Arts Audio etc.
By the way,the next Melbourne Audio Club meeting on Wednesday 18 is the BRING AND BUY night as well as the AGM. There are always great buys, including vinyl and CDs.
