Publisher’s note: This is a part of a series of pre-CAS7 articles we have prepared for our readers. Enjoy!

Questionnaire created by Dan Rubin, copy editor.

Respondent: Alan Fong, Syncopation. (Boardroom I)


What’s the “elevator pitch” description of your company?

The products I choose for my company have to move me emotionally.  Voice and musical instruments should be convincing and realistic.  The bottom line is the needs of the consumer.

What makes your company and products special – how do they stand out from the pack? 

My business model is I offer customers in-home demonstrations for a week.  This would allow the customers to listen critically in their home environment. I would not be standing over them.  This also lets the listener be in a proper mood to make a good decision.

Which of your products do you plan to demonstrate at CAS 2017? 

There will be two systems.  System one will be Genesis Maestro loudspeakers, Viva Aurora monoblocks, Viva Linea Stereo 2 chassis linestage, Genesis Phono Preamplifier, and the VPI Vanquish turntable with Transfiguration Diamond Proteus cartridge.

System two will be Trenner & Friedl Osiris loudspeakers, Heed thesis lambda analog linestage, Heed thesis gamma stereo power amplifier, Heed Obelisk DT digital transport, Heed Abacus DAC, and the Funk Firm turntable with a Transfiguration cartridge.

Which sorts of CAS attendees should be interested to see and hear the products you will be demonstrating – and why? 

The attendee should make comparisons to live music.  I do not have objections to a person who listens to music with colorations.  Music is to be enjoyed no matter how it is presented.

What do you like most about exhibiting at smaller, regional audio shows such as CAS 2017?

No matter if the audio shows are large or small, it is important that shows exist because retailers are far and few.

In your product space, what are you most excited about in terms of technology and market trends?

I am excited how far analog technology has advanced.  Or I can say that things have come full circle.

Assuming you had the resources, what product would you like to create?

I can’t think of any.
