Hi-fi Hootenannies at Whetstone Audio
Friday, December 2, 69pm: Whetstone Audio (2401 East 6th Street, #1001, Austin, Texas) will host an evening of music with Bob Clarke of Profundo (Heed, Transfiguration, VivA, Trenner & Freidl, Silent Source) and Colleen Cardas of Colleen Cardas Imports (Unison Research, Opera Loudspeakers).
Brian Di Frank of Whetstone Audio says this is just “the first of many hootenannies” and he offers a warm invitation:
Here’s the deal. Many folks are buying turntables now and really don’t know much about them. There is also a big interest in computer-based audio and, I’ll admit, it’s daunting with all the geek speak. What I want to do is start having these evenings once a month to educate and raise awareness. That $99 USB turntable you picked up at Waterloo Records was a great first step. If you want to see what the next step is, come to these events. Don’t be afraid! This isn’t going to be your average audiophile nerd fest. We want to collectively educate music lovers about hi-fi, spin good music, and have a great time.
Sounds like my kind of event.
Featured gear will include the Trenner & Freidl Pharoah loudspeakers and Unison Research Unico 50 hybrid integrated amplifier, both making their US debut. Guests will have the opportunity to speak with Di Frank, Clarke, and Cardas, and listen to some great music. Refreshments will be served.
