Remembering Arnie Nudell (1937-2017) founder of high-end audio.

I first met Arnie in April 2002, when I visited him to try to convince him to build me a pair of Genesis 1’s after his company closed down the previous year. He cooked us both lunch at home – a wonderful seafood risotto – and ended up convincing ME to purchase the assets and inventory of Genesis from the bank that had foreclosed on Genesis Technologies.

Genesis Advanced Technologies was started less than 4 months later with a manufacturing facility in Seattle, WA and we set up a lab for Arnie to continue with his design work in Eagle, CO. I hired Arnie as the Chief Scientist, where he worked until his retirement in 2006.

Through Genesis, his legacy lives on. We continue to push the state-of-the-art to develop innovative products on the foundation that Arnie built: the servo-controlled woofer, the four-tower line-source loudspeaker systems, the ribbon midrange and ribbon tweeters, and most of all the focus on music first.

Rest in Peace, Arnie.

Limited Space, Limited Budget, Great Sound

Catch a Witch at Gig Harbor

Here’s a great little video by Gig Harbor Audio featuring probably one of the rarest models of Genesis loudspeakers – the baby G7p “petite”. We are known for 6-foot tall behemoths, so no one expects a little stand-mount monitor, but it is Gary Koh’s “favorite design” because he says “it does so much for so little”. That being relative, of course.

The G7p uses the same tweeter as our flagship Genesis Prime (just much fewer of them) and the same high quality crossover components.
