Classic Album Night at Lyric Hi-Fi
Received this fax today:
New York, NYDuring "Classic Album Night," scheduled for 6:30PM on the second Thursday of each upcoming month, a Lyric high end specialist will play albums that have become standards, LPs when possible, on mid-six-figure reference systems in the main listening room of the firm's Manhattan store at 1221 Lexington Avenue, a unique acoustic space designed for optimum music playback. Admission is free, but reservations are required and can be made by calling Bob Herman or Mike Deutsch at (212) 439-1900. While supplies last, each attendee will also receive a free Chesky CD.
Someone at Lyric's got good taste.

These are excellent albums, and should work well to show off any fancy system. Featured gear will include loudspeakers by Hansen Audio and Nola; electronics by ASR, Audio Research, Halcro, Mark Levinson, and McIntosh; a VPI turntable; and Nordost cables. Lyric's main listening room was designed by Lyric founder, Michael Kay, along with veteran audiophiles Dick Sequerra, Mitchell Cotter, and Mark Levinson, and promises to be impressive. Future sessions are yet to be scheduled. I'll be making my reservations.
