Dynaudio has come out with a new Focus line, I heard one of the models and it was very good, still Dyn but improved over the older Focus.  If other haven't been there in a while MFP have added Bolder, Sim Audio, Octave Audio and Sonus Faber to the line up.
I auditioned an Octave AUdio int. amp. It is great stuff (but I am sticking with my SS Naim gear). I bought a Simaudio phono preamp from them. I'm very happy with it. I've heard the Sonus Faber speakers at MFP and don't think they stand up to Dynaudio.

How about a category/ list for equipment service in the area? Anybody here who can tell me what's up with my old Perreaux amp?
(Thanks!)

Let's add JML Audio 636-343-2020 for true audiophile sound in the auto.  I've heard 3 systems done by them and each was stunning, way beyond what I think most have heard for audio in a vehicle.  They sell and install Dynaudio auto speakers, Audison, high end car electronics from Italy, Kenwood and more.  One of the most impressive things I heard by one of their systems is how the sound comes from in front of you, not at all like a typical car stereo, you can't tell where the speakers are, this is done by time alignment using processing very effectively.  Their installs are very good and done as to take minimal room.  One install was a Corvette convertible and the other an Audi, everything was just like it was made for the car.

I have Joshua's business card in my Rolodex here at work.
I've thought about adding his company to the list, but wasn't sure. I've been meaning to call him about it. He's a good guy from what (little) I know, and the (few) dealings I've had with him.

I'll add him though, since you brought him up.

I'll add another vote for JML.  Very professional sound quality installs, totally difft than what I had when i was 16   :lol:


Both of their show cars at last nights MFP event were excellent & understated.   Supposedly some of those car amps cost upwards of $10K.    :o

Welcome to the club Kevin. I've added your company to the list, and to the email contacts.

Hi Bob

I like this idea for a st louis hifi, audiophile company directory! I am writing in to help fill it out - the URL for Music for Pleasure is http://www.musicforpleasure.com, the contact is Dwayne Boyer, and email address mfp@musicforpleasure.com.

If you can update, thanks in advance!

Matt

Thank you Matt (and my appologies for taking so long to find your post).  :oops: :duh:
I've updated the list.

One of these days....I'll find the info for all the companys and make a proper list. Right now, it's a bit bare.

Welcome to GAS Matt  :thumb:

John also has Musical Designs which is his own hi fi gear.  One of his tube preamps has an interesting twist that you can change the board out to achieve different sound quality.  I believe it had choice of 4 different boards.

I believe Best Sound has closed their doors.  I pass by every day, and for the past 3 or 4 weeks the store has been dark with no vehicles outside.

I called Best Sound the week after Xmas and some one answered, so I think they are still there.  I was wondering where I could get some of those leather chairs that swivel they use in their listening room, the guy didn't know, so if any one of you might......

Those chairs go back over 15 years ago to the good old Les Marcus days. I was told two days ago that the building was recently sold and that they are now operating from some place in the valley in Chesterfield. I haven't been able to confirm this however.

Hi, Tim.  It's been real quiet at Best Sound since you left the place.  I noticed the building is dark also, but the parking lot has been pretty empty for quite a while.  Do you know who bought the building ?

Also, you need to add Aaron Waldbrandt, the local Meridian dealer, to the company list.  His company is called Waldbrandt Technologies, 231 Millwell Dr., St. Louis, MO. 63043, (314) 627-0346.  Email is: aaron@walbrandt.com.

His guys do gorgeous work in home theater, music room and home automation installation.

Just a "bump" for any STL guys that know of any updates I need to make to the list.
Also, if you have a company in STL, and want to be on the list, or already are but want changes made, let me know.
