That’s great, nice neighborhood! If the red one is your building it comes with a garage too!

It's a dream place. Yes, it's the single red single structure on the corner. It belongs to a good friend and customer. They have several other homes in the US and Europe. They will not be there much, as he recently retired. I will be the house watchdog. It has a garage and two parking spaces, which as you know in Brooklyn is priceless. I am blessed with this and feel very fortunate.

Nice, I grew up on Long Island and have family in East Meadow and Dix Hills. Maybe I can visit when in town? Or maybe when the Dallas location is running, I'm about 3 hours away...

That would be great! It would be cool if you manage to visit BOTH locations in the future. Both DFW and the Brooklyn locations will have very similar set ups available, BUT totally different rooms etc, so it should be interesting to see/experience both.

Rhapsody is making the move over to Brooklyn on July 15th, so a few weeks after that we will be set up and ready to host visits. Look forward to meeting you!

Any plans for one of these in Northern California (outside of the Magico)?

We have a RLR in Palm Desert CA and then Bob up in Portland. At these locations you will be able to hear Pilium, Alsyvox, Diesis and Bayz. Bob in Portland has all of these mentioned brands incoming and his room is all set and ready. Jerry in Palm Desert CA, has Alsyvox and Pilium available now, with Diesis and Bayz coming in the future.

You can also hear the full set up of Pilium at the Magico showroom driving the M9s, just get in touch with Alon to schedule a demo.

You can also visit Cake Audio, who is an authorized Alsyvox dealer, in San Clemente CA, to hear the Botticelli X with Vitus. Ken did a great job at the show last weekend showing off the B X's with the very nice Vitus electronics.

Lot's of places to hear Alsyvox:)

Thank you. I don't like to waste distributor's time as a tire kicker who is unlikely to purchase. However, getting a group together as a field trip can work out.

Appreciate it, but you are always welcome to come for a listen. Buying not required:) Just call ahead of time and set up a visit. Would enjoy your visit!

It is ALWAYS SO APPRECIATED when someone says they are not going to purchase anything but they would like to listen to something. That goes for EVEN if they want to hear it and they are going to buy it used or somewhere else. When someone is transparent like this I will ALWAYS let them listen to whatever they would like to hear.

This is not usually the norm. I would guess that over 50% of demos are not for purchase reasons, but some other reason, and there is usually NO transparency. That's ok as well as it comes with the territory, but it's very refreshing when transparency exists from the beginning of a conversation. Again , very appreciated.

Well, five days into it, and a few eviction notices, he might regret his courtesy.
