The Ascent of Mark Schifter

Mark Schifter is well on his way to becoming a legendary figure in high-end audio. From his small-box, low–price-point Audio Alchemy and Perpetual Technology components, Mark has gone on to found one of the first genuine bargain high-end websites, AV123, and build speaker cabinets for many major players. Here he stands next to one of his extremely fine-sounding, amazingly low-priced speakers and subs, all sourced from renewable forests and finished with eco-friendly veneers.

What was the relationship between Tweak City Audio and Mark Shifter? TCA was selling some of Shifter,s products....I wonder if that relationship went sour?I also demoed his Rocket line of speakers...nothing remarkable.

I guess he has become legendary, in an ignominious way.

Allan, that cracks me up. First global warming isn't a fraud. Secondly, do you know what is? So-called high end power cables, speaker wires and interconnects.

I noticed that Stereophile didn't have any coverage of the Schifter indictment at all. Nothing to see here, move along!

Is it just me, or does that sub have a destroyed cone?
