Our Thai dealer Wuti Larnwoongroj of Audio Excellence, Bangkok is also one of the largest retailers of legal, royalty-paid Reel-to-Reel tape titles in the world through his store Image Music & Film Co. also in Bangkok. That may be why Groove Note has decided to have the world premier launch of two tape titles: GRV1088 Vanessa Fernandez When the Levee Breaks and GRV1099 Jacintha Fire & Rain on June 30th. Our CEO Gary Leonard Koh will be there for the relaunch of the Genesis Forte with the new Genesis designed ribbon mid-range at the same time.
Groove Note owner Ying Tan will be on hand to demo the tapes, and also do some A/B comparisons with the 45rpm vinyl, as well as to play a 30ips master of the new as-yet-unmastered Vanessa album. With over 30 years experience in music production (Classic Records, Groove Note and ORG), he will talk about the differences between Pro and Consumer machines, and the big difference between tapes produced by the serious mastering places and those that are generally available on the Internet.
If you are in Bangkok, this is a must-not-miss event to hear the best that tape can do.

Designer and CEO Gary L Koh is in Shanghai, supporting our Distributor Forthwise Limited, April 14 & 15, 2018
Excited to be showing the Genesis Forte with our distributor Forthwise Limited at the 26th Shanghai International High-End Hi-Fi EXPO. One of the longest running hifi shows in the world!
The Genesis Fortes in “Silver Barracuda” Carbon Fibre finish and Genesis Maestros in Rosewood are available for audition. Follow us on our Facebook Page for more updates and live news.
After listening to the new Genesis Maestro ($30,000/pair in dazzling rosewood), I realize that Genesis’s owner and designer, Gary Koh, has not merely refined an exceptional loudspeaker but has reengineered it to a high standard.
Thank you, Jim Saxon, we are honored. Jim Saxon owned a pair of Genesis 500s and per Gary, “I am particularly chuffed that he said we took a hallowed design and made it better!!”

There is no better tribute to a loudspeaker design than the musicians enjoying their creations! Our Industry Friend in Thailand, Brilliance Music and Studio posted the video below on their FaceBook page. Enjoy!

Anne Bisson came to visit with us at CES. Her album Four Seasons in Jazz sounds so true-to-life that she gets up and scats with herself.

Genesis is at the CES 2018 show in the same room – 29-233 in the Venetian Towers. This year’s analogue source is the VPI Vanquish direct-drive turntable with the brand new “Fat Boy” tonearm bearing the Transfiguration Proteus D cartridge with the diamond cantilever. Phono preamp is the Genesis Gold Phono.
The heart of the system is the brand new Viola Chorale integrated amplifier (price to be determined) sporting an optional DAC that was literally soldered together the day before Paul Jayson flew out to Las Vegas.
And of course, the loudspeakers are Gary Koh’s latest design – the Genesis Maestro. The latest generation of the beloved Genesis 5-series loudspeakers, they have been garnering a lot of praise for accuracy, neutrality and transparency (and simply awesome bass).
While visiting dealers in the region, Gary is revisiting a pair of Genesis Prime for fine tuning at 2nd year. New electronics from CH Precision – P1 Phono with X1, L1 linestage. Gryphon Mephisto Solo, TechDas Air Force 1 with Transfiguration Proteus.
Gary is hard at work, fine tuning yet another pair of Genesis Maestros at Hi-Fi Choice Penang
