“what do YOU suggest” is something our customers ask all the time.

Our reply: “it depends WHAT you listen to, WHERE you listen to it and how much you’re prepared to invest.” We decided to each build a system, based on different room configurations. budget and lifestyle considerations. It was a great exercise and we had fun with it. The really good news is that Jim has promised a VERY good deal if you buy any of our specially curated systems! (By the way, the “Music is Life” title is a result of our obsession with “Ted Lasso” on Apple TV+ – a great show! Evan grew up listening to a wide range of music with his Dad, who was an audiophile back in the 80’s. He still loves all kinds of music and genres. He loves Stone Temple Pilots, Queens of the Stone Age, Gary Numan and Type-O Negative. These days, Evan spends his evenings gaming and chilling. He mostly streams music on Spotify, though he is starting a vinyl collection and has a small system setup in the corner of his office.

Evan’s System Pick

PRO-JECT T1 Turntable $529.99 Kanto YU6 Powered Speakers with Bluetooth and Phono Preamp $619.99
EVAN SAYS: This is a perfect system for gamers or for an apartment or condo. The YU6 speakers sound incredible and pair so well with the Debut Carbon EVO turntable. I chose the YU6’s because they are powered  speakers with a built-in phono preamp so they can run my turntable AND they’re bluetooth, which is important to me. Not needing an amp or receiver to power this system makes it incredibly budget-friendly.
Lynne has always loved music and started her career as a music programmer for a rock station in New Zealand. That’s where her eclectic taste was formed.
She listens to everything from Hendrix and Frank Zappa, through Eminem to Taylor Swift. She describes her vinyl collection as “small but perfectly formed” and it includes some oldies like Linda Ronstadt, Fleetwood Mac, Van Morrison and Pink Floyd as well as newer releases such as Dua Lipa, Pink and Billie Eilish.
Streaming has changed everything and now she can have ALL her music EVERYWHERE…including lots of her favourite New Zealand artists and songs.

Work System

Lynne's desk This is Lynne’s desk setup at the store. The Kanto YU2 speakers are powered, so no amp is required, and they are very appealing in the smooth bamboo finish. The matching speaker stands make a big difference to the sound. These speakers are super-easy to set up.

Everywhere Else System

The Roam goes everywhere with her. She swears by its long battery life and how amazing it sounds. It’s tiny,  portable, waterproof and dustproof. With the wireless charger, it really is a great investment,

LYNNE SAYS:  I chose this system because the Powernode Streaming device has plenty of power and an amplifier built in. The Debut III BT has a built in phono-stage and the PSB T20 towers are compact and perform spectacularly. This is a really smart Audiophile starter package. I am a fan of tower speakers and the slightly more compact size of the PSB’s were the first thing that appealed to me – but now I’ve heard them, I’m a believer! PSB has earned their reputation!

JIM SAYS: I am super-picky when it comes to sound. My philosophy is that I would rather build a quality system methodically –  piece by piece – than settle for something average or below-par. I have been a Paradigm guy for over 25 years and still stand by them as amazing sounding speakers and the best bang for the buck. They have exceptional accuracy across their entire frequency range: silky highs, tight bass and an overall sense of ambiance and air. The detail and finesse is amazing. We are in the process of ripping MANY boxes of CDs into the 2 TB Vault and it’s great to have my old favorites back at my fingertips again.
