Hey gents, I’m Trev , I own Massif Audio Design just outside of Toronto. I was google alerted to this post. Thanks to Agent 86 for adding Massif to the mix.
We primarily make racks and exotic tone wood record weights but we’ve also been making cable risers for about 7 years. Pretty much everyone makes them now, and for those who are really astute will know that Audience Cables totally ripped off our design about 2 yrs ago. High praise from a good cable company.
Stereophile near did an article about our risers. The reviewer who had them tested and measured them with Art Dudley (RIP) and messaged me to say “wow, they really do work, and they actually make a measurable improvement” (not quoting him exactly). They were to be part of a larger review but near the final days before it went to print the article was scrapped. I was at a small party which was unveiling EgglestonWorks newest speaker at the time and the reviewer in question told me the bad news about the article and said Stereophiles main man , above Art, said it was too controversial and just begging for angry letters to the editor and slamming Stereophiles credibility. Regardless, our cable risers sales remained strong. We don’t promise any audible performance improvement with them, although we have had a dozen customers write to say that. Possibly I’ll add those emails to the site one day when things are slow.
This is no lie and I swear on my sons eyes that yesterday I met a customer and sold him a set of cocobolo risers. Maybe 4 hrs later he texted me to say he has a problem.
the problem was that he had 3 turntables and now needed 3 Massif racks. Also 18 more cable risers. (That’s a lot of risers)
anyways, here’s mine at home. White ebony with black streaks. Even my wife likes them.
our real peach are our record weights. Search them up.
