Hong Kong High End Audio Visual Show 2018

Gary and Genesis were at the Hong Kong High End Audio Visual Show – August 10 – 12 – with our distributor, Forthwise Ltd. There, the Genesis Maestros in a high-gloss Madagascar Ebony veneer finish was shown.

 This is similar to the set up I had at CES in Las Vegas this year. The Viola Chorale integrated amplifier with Genesis Maestro loudspeakers. I feel that this is one of those magical pairings that transcend price and reputation.

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.
