Demonstrations are open to the public in our simulated livingroom environment during regular hours (M-F 12-6, Sat by appt.) and also by appointment any other day. Just contact us (206 407 8439 or 206 214 7847) to let us know when you'd like to drop by.
We can accommodate for near field, far field, shelf, and desktop setups of the Orcas, with or without an Orca Sub(s).
We take pride in the fact that we don't put up a front of the typical high pressure sales environment of most stereo stores. Relax and have a glass of wine (or tea (or water)) - its on us. We encourage you to take your time listening to our system. The Orcas are meant to be listened to for the long haul, and you might be surprised at how many records go by before you realize how late it is!
Our all Bottlehead "Big Rig"
House amplification is by Bottlehead, using either the SEX 2.0, S.E.X. 2.1 C4S, Stereomour 2A3, Paramour II SR45, or Paramount 300B, preamplified by a Quickie or a BeePree.
We run both digital (HRT Musicstreamer II+) or iPhone/iPod and analog source. We use a modified Technics SL 1200 MK II with either an Eros or Seduction tube phono pre amplifier.
We also have a Hafler DH200 and Hafler pre-amp to demonstrate what good high power solid state sounds like and we also have a collection of various solid state receivers and other amplifiers that can be hooked up. You are also welcome to bring in your own amplifier or receiver to listen to during the appointment.
We encourage you to bring your own iPod, iPhone, or favorite CDs or records, but we've also got a great record collection to share with you if you happen to forget to bring any music.
All cables, including RCA's, are by Blue Jeans Cable.
