When I was younger – back in the mid 1970’s – I experienced a minor yet defining moment in my life. While bored and on summer holidays I wandered into my first motorcycle shop, a Norton dealer in Vernon BC. I was nine years old at the time and remember being instantly grabbed by the scent of gasoline, leather, and rubber. I was hooked.
A few years later my first trip into a real Hi-Fi shop produced the same feeling of euphoria. Walking into the shop I was met by the strains of Yes’s Fragile playing on this wonderous system: black ominous-looking amplifiers, components covered in important looking knobs and switches feeding a pair of oak clad behemoths festooned with an array of drivers while the LP spinning on a jewel like turntable. At fourteen I was smitten once again. I knew I had found something that would be with me for the rest of my life.
Why do I mention this little piece of personal history? Because when we conceived S&M High Fidelity we made it our mission to resurrect the proper Hi-Fi store with a modern twist. We are obsessive about the art of playing back audio masterpieces. With both a nod to the past and a future vision of embracing new technologies, we will connect you to the greatest contribution the human race has given… music.
" Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy." Ludwig van Beethoven
