Distinctive Stereo LLC is delighted to announce a special event featuring Gary L. Koh, Chief Designer and CEO of Genesis Advanced Technologies, to be held on Saturday, September 14th, 2019, beginning at noon. Genesis is extremely successful in the growing Asian market for high-end U.S.-made products, and Distinctive Stereo is thrilled to bring the brand home to the U.S. market.
Gary will introduce the music that influenced his designs, bringing some of his "unobtainium" stash of recordings, as well as test pressings of music of the direct-to-disc recording that he made in Bernie Grundman's Studio. For those who have never heard a direct-to-lacquer, it is as close as one can get to being a fly on the wall of a recording studio during a live session. An acetate lacquer has a limited number of plays before it deteriorates so it will be played only once - DON'T BE LATE or you will miss it. Gary will also tell us about the designs of his speakers and electronics.
Our second guest will be Mat Weisfeld, who will discuss the new HW-40 Direct Drive turntable – so named in honor of VPI’s 40th anniversary – and other exciting events on the horizon at VPI.
Last but not least, we will also be joined by Merrill Wettasinghe of Merrill Audio Technologies, who will speak about his new line of gallium nitride-based Element series of amplifiers, and other new Merrill Audio products that will soon be launched.
A partial equipment list is as follows:
- Genesis Maestro loudspeakers
- Genesis phonostage
- VPI HW-40 turntable, with a van den Hull cartridge
- Merrill Audio Christine linestage preamplifier
- Merrill Audio Element 116 monoblock amplifiers
Lunch will be served. Please RSVP either by E-mail at email@example.com, or by telephone at (201) 391-1411.

One of the exciting parts of VPI is traveling to meet with and visit VPI partners/distributors. For most manufactures in the high-end industry there is an “Asia Tour” around this time of year due to the scheduling of multiple shows around Asia at the same time. The schedule VPI tries to keep is the Malaysian, Thailand, Hong Kong, and Taiwan Show while visiting other countries in between for mini events. Last year we missed the whole tour due to the addition to our family (Shyla being born) and this year we condensed the trip since dragging a 17 month old around Asia is never a great idea and I didn’t want to be gone too long.
This year the Thailand and Hong Kong show were selected since they were one weekend apart and a visit to our Japanese and Vietnamese distributors were scheduled in between. The Malaysian and Taiwan Show are still on but minus having someone from VPI out there for this year (shooting for next year we still love you guys also!) This year was also important being our 40th Anniversary year and wanting to get ourselves and the HW-40 Limited Anniversary Direct drive table out in front of as many people as possible.
To organize and give each country the proper attention they deserve, I’m going to break up each visit into their own post so we can dig deeper in what has been happening in Asia. Also a welcome treat is being able to meet international VPI owners and music enthusiast while having a chance to listen to equipment we don't usually have a chance to demo. From bombings, to riots, to musical bliss... this trip had more packed in than an action movie!

Here is a short list of what we will be experiencing at the event:
"It had all that I have come to expect from world-class 2A3 SET amplifiers and great open-baffle speakers. The balance from the very deep bass to the top-end was impressive.... PureAudioProject is to be commended for how well they have integrated the OB-A15Neo 15-inch bass drivers with the Voxativ full-range driver.", Audio Beatnik, Three of the Best Sound Rooms at California Audio Show 2019
