Andrew Singer Of "Sound by Singer" passed away yesterday

Andy Singer who owned an audio store in Manhattan and was also a lawyer, passed away yesterday.  I was friends with him on Facebook and found him to be quite a fascinating person.  He was opinionated and was never afraid to speak his mind.  He knew a lot about high end audio and much more.  I will miss him. Rest in Peace Andy.


I remember going to his shop years ago --80s?--and asking to hear a pair of Acoustats (I think). As I listened, I found the imaging odd and asked Andrew if they were hooked up correctly. He checked and found the the left and right channels were reversed. He laughed heartily at his mistake. RIP

I remember Sound by Singer store like no other that would FIRST look at depth of your pocket before servicing you. They very often started conversations from "you probably can't afford it" -- that meant that I didn't have Rolex on my wrist and dressed "too casual". Walk in with Rolex and designer clothing -- all dealers are around you! My old memories there: markups on every piece of equipment is titanic and service depends on how you walk in.





one of the stalwarts in the nyc high end retail scene

all high end retail stores turn some people off, andy could do that for sure

but through this store over the decades, he made many many an audiophile happy with great systems he advised on, sold and serviced

rip andy singer

btw -- this should remind all of us too that life is indeed very short, don’t dwell on negativity, be positive and don’t let tortured souls we meet in life drag us down
