Nothing can more quickly separate a spooky-good, digital-source fronted soundsystem from, well, lesser ones, than cavernous, soft velvet blacker-black backgrounds. The biggest difference? Almost always AC/EMI/RFI noise.

I’ve just recently moved to the West Coast, so when Focal reached out and informed Rafe and myself of a new store opening in Phoenix Arizona, it was a serendipitous coincidence of interest too good to pass up.

David Solomon of Qobuz North America has become a familiar face at domestic audio shows the past few years, and for good reason, he’s one of the friendliest, most enthusiastic and all around fun guys in the industry – even amongst the young-at-heart crowd.
