At Glenn Poor's, we are constantly trying new products in the high end audio and video market in order to find what we feel are the best values. All the products that we have in our showrooms reflect our desire for high quality while maintaining a reasonable price/performance ratio. Here are some of the brands and products that we proudly carry in our store:
Basis: Basis turntables are a great, simple high quality and price effictive way to add a phono section to your listening system.
ClearAudio: The goal of high-end analogue is to perfectly merge technology, workmanship and design and subordinate them to one single target: the best possible music reproduction. At Clearaudio, all development, design and production remain firmly in the hands of a perfectly experienced and attuned team of specialists who never lose sight of that goal, and who uphold the Clearaudio philosophy and high quality standards.
Mo-Fi Electronics: Mo-Fi turntables are new to the market, but what went into their creation came after years of experience in recording and creating vinyl records (Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs), as well as the playback of records. Allen Perkins is recognized as one of the guiding lights in design of both turntables and tonearms, and his collaboration in Mo-Fi's turntable designs ensured something very special. Likewise, enlisting HRS to design the anti-vibration "feet" was a stroke of brilliance. Just as Mo-Fi cartridges are great values, the turntables are sure-fire winners in an increasingly crowded category.
Pro-Ject: Pro-Ject turntables have certainly been a help to the revitalization of vinyl in the music industry. When starting the company, the goal of Heinz Lichtenegger was to make analog products that were reasonably priced but maintained a level of performance that audiophiles would enjoy.
Rega: Rega started as a turntable company in 1973, and made the now famous Planet and (later) Planar 2. Rega continued with innovation making new tonearms, and eventually cartridges. In the newer electronics, Rega has kept the "analog sound" in their products. The Planet 2000 and Jupiter CD players are a prime example of the great analog sounding products. These CD players have no hint of digital harshness yet still recreate the most minute details.
Spiral Groove: As a medium for capturing music, vinyl remains unsurpassed. To convey its rich and nuanced potential, a turntable must, at the very least, achieve a high degree of control over the speed of its platter and the transfer of energy among its components. Noise is the nemesis, an uncompromised signal emerging from a silent background the goal.
Technics: Launched in 2016, the SL-1200G combined Technics' experience in traditional analogue technology and advanced digital technology, while redesigning all components from the ground up. It's outstanding performance literally rocked the Hi-Fi market and redefined the reference for direct-drive turntables. The revival of the legendary SL-1200 series has been nothing short of an absolute success.
