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.
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!

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.
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.
