Dealer Events in Denver, Santa Rosa, Thursday May 24

Thursday May 24, Soundings Fine Audio Video (8101 E. Belleview Avenue Suite X-1, Denver, CO 80237) and Lavish Hi-Fi (1044 4th Street, Santa Rosa, CA 95404) are holding special events.

Soundings is celebrating 30 years in High End Audio with an evening of fun and listening. Guests will include Rich Maez from Boulder Amplifiers, who will be showing off the new 508 phono preamplifier, Chris Morris from Chord Electronics, and Mike Marko from Nordost Cables, and Chord and Nordost will be offering special pricing at the event. The festivities will begin at 6pm and go until 9pm and there will be refreshments and finger food.

Lavish's free event, "Reconnecting with Music," runs from 5:30pm to 7:30pm, and will help audiophiles reconnect with music and in the process discover new music. "Are you listening to less music than you used to? Do you miss that amazing feeling music gave you?" asks Lavish, saying that many people have forgotten how much music used to mean to them. "Music offers the true luxury of escape which we need in our increasingly busy lives. Science has shown that music has a positive impact on our health and well-being. Headphones and car stereos are fine, but nothing compares to what music in your own space can do."

Industry veteran Steven Lester will walk attendees through the basics of setting up a music playback system to recapture the magic music once brought them. "Whatever kind of music you love and however you access it, we'll offer tips and techniques to bring that music back to life," says Lavish, adding "Find what you've been missing with some simple steps and your existing system, or start to plan a new one with a greater insight and set of tools."
