Just Keep Thinking
I dropped by Thiel's room to tease them about the fact that I had heard that Rolling Stone had a pair of CS3.7 loudspeakers, while a certain audiophile magazine did not.
All kidding aside, I thought it was a brilliant example of a high-end company reaching out beyond the converted audiophiles to demonstrate that better is, um, better.
"That was [Thiel PR rep] Micah Sheveloff's idea," Dawkins said. "Rolling Stone loves their Theil/Bryston system. The editor told me that the reviewers played the system for the A&R people at the labels and now they're bringing the artists in to hear their mixes on it."
There may be hope for the music industry yet!
