Breaking news! Jays Audio is moving to Texas and takes interest in McIntosh

Southwest audio show apparently was a big hit and a great place for audio.

It's nice to see Jay is taking an interest in McIntosh amplifiers. He has a 2 boxes in his lab containing MC 901 dual mono amplifiers that can be used to biamp lots of things including speakers , a tube/solid state amplifier. He promises a review sometime soon.

Additionally he's got brand new speakers and we don't know what they are because they are Hidden behind acoustical panels waiting to be unveiled sometime by Thanksgiving.

Jay predicts his brand will be bigger than southwest audio show.  Jays audio show coming to a Texas town near you. 

Looking forward to all the excitement. 



If I had the time to actually respond to all comments in here…

Oh wait - someone once said “ if you always tell the truth , you don’t have to remember anything “

Was that Mark Twain ?
There is a reason WHY I had the longest running thread in the history of Audiogon removed… It is still the best decision I’ve ever made because it has allowed me to focus on those things that actually contribute to my family and I.
We all have a passion for something (I hope you all do too) but if don’t follow it, you are cheating YOURSELF.
I’m thankful for what this forum did for me as well as those of you who have been supportive of me throughout the years (you know who you are).
I don’t seek validation or to make the masses happy. We all know when you try to make everyone happy you end up making NO ONE happy.
Over the next 12-24 months I hope to bring a version 2.0 or “mk2” as we call it when it comes to audio components. If people are mentioning you (in good or bad ways) it simply means you have reach and they are either following you, watching you, hearing you or listening to you.

I have always been kind to anyone who’s met me in person. I’ve never ripped anyone off or taken advantage of anyone. It’s not in my DNA to do that to anyone because that will come back to you.
Growth comes from hard work and dedication and not by sitting on your butt watching TV. Those who are close to me know how hard I work day in day out.
Lastly, what I’ve accomplished so far was started IN HERE in THIS forum. I just stayed the course posting in here on a daily basis for roughly 8 years. If I didn’t want more for my time and effort, I’d still be here posting without a YouTube channel or a presence  in this audio industry.
Remember, I came from nothing, no rich parents or inheritance… if I did this, SO CAN YOU !


Nicely worded, positive, and non defensive response to the highly critical posts in this thread. As I look at my post, it was inappropriately negative. Kudos to your success.

Nice response Jay. Clear and factual. I’m not sure why you get such a visceral response from people. You have always been professional in my experience and you have a ton of passion for what you do. I wish you good luck as you have put your money where your mouth is. We don’t agree on much when it comes to audio but we don’t have to agree about sound or “rankings” for me to respect your journey . I’m not a subscriber but I hope you continue to follow your passion wherever it takes you.

I love the radical spirit. Stick it to the man. I think the spirit of audio shows needs adjustment.  The last audio show in Texas brought together hundreds of individualized components that were all assembled in individual rooms where elderly men were shepherded in and out of these rooms, why they don't allow women to these events is beyond me, it's just remarkable.

How does anybody discern anything of sonic quality with these horribly set up rooms with all the mismatched components.

My gosh leave the beds in the room so people can relax while they listen to the music.
