Forty- one years ago I gave up what looked like a promising legal career at one of New York’s top law firms to start Sound By Singer . I did not hate practicing law but there was nothing about it that made me want to get up in the morning and hit the ground running except perhaps the salary.
My abiding passion was and still is music. I played instruments since I was 10 years old solo and in bands and when I was not playing I was listening to both live and recorded music. Playing and listening to music made my heart beat faster and captured my imagination like nothing else.
Once I realized that I was never going to be a rock star , most of my attention was given over to finding the best way to make recorded music sound as close as possible to a live performance in my own living room. I read and experimented, auditioning, buying and learning the whys and wherefores of the art until I knew as much or more than anyone working in any of the HIFI shops I visited. More Importantly, I discovered that I had the best ears in the business- I knew when something sounded right and when it did not and how to implement an audio system which satisfied even my impossible standards of accuracy.
So, I took the leap and the rest as they say is history.
The entire premise for Sound By Singer is rooted in our belief that while other forms of entertainment may come and go music always was, is now, and always will be an essential ingredient to nourish our souls. To ensure that our customers have a balanced diet, we have assembled the finest collection of high end audio components and systems available anywhere.
We consider designing audio systems to be an art. From the start, the selection of the equipment we sell is a painstaking process. Each component is incorporated in a reference system and evaluated to see how close it comes to recreating the experience of live music. Then it is assessed individually on its own merits for sound quality, construction and reliability.
Only after a component passes our stringent tests and meets our high standard, do we begin our exhaustive matching procedure. We match each component to others whose characteristics are most complementary to create systems that capture the magic of the live experience.
