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!!”

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).
