Arizona HiFi is a hotbed for music lovers, located at the always-busy corner of Camelback and Central, just north of downtown Phoenix. Arizona HiFi not only offers some of the finest brands, but they’ve also created an atmosphere where enjoyment of music and all things cool are at the forefront.
Formally known as Arizona Tube Audio, Arizona HiFi was founded by Dan Mazza, who had decided to phase away from the business in 2000. Glen Bevell, who currently serves as Arizona HiFi’s steward, took ownership because he couldn’t imagine the Phoenix community without this wonderful institution. Music has always been a central part of Glen’s life; early on, family members would gather during the holidays and sooner or later somebody would pick up an instrument and begin to perform. Sadly for Glen, musicianship wasn’t meant to be, but developing a good ear was. This, combined with Glen’s constant stream of random audio gear, which he, along with his older brother, performed Frankensteinian experimentations with, lead his never ending pursuit of the ultimate in audio performance. This culminated in Glen’s professional involvement in the specialty audio industry.
Arizona HiFi wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Glen’s second in command, Bill Goodman. Bill has been a constant fixture in the Phoenix hifi scene since 1979. Bill possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of audio gear and its history – Bill has passed this knowledge down to Glen and the next generation. Away from the shop, Bill spends a considerable amount of time devoted to Phoenix’s homegrown live music scene. Today, Bill spins tales and helps tend to the flock of Arizona Hifi followers.
Arizona Hifi has created a positive and constantly busy environment; this is without doubt due to the energy and soul that Glen and Bill bring to the store every day. Please don’t hesitate to visit their website, pick up the phone, or even better, grab some of your favorite new music and swing by the store.
Nordost’s Frey 2 cable range is receiving some much deserved attention in the September issue of The Absolute Sound. Reviewer Neil Gader talked about the Frey 2 line after becoming acquainted with our Purple Flare range of cables last year.
“Frey 2… has rebalanced the scales, taking the transient and micro-dynamic elements of the past and integrating them with richer mids and a brawnier, meatier bottom end that gives orchestral music more discernible, atmosphere and weight. In a word, there’s more fidelity to the live event.” – Neil Gader
You can now read Neil’s article, Nordost Frey 2 Speaker Cable and Interconnects—Evolving and Improving, on the review section of the Nordost website.
Nordost is lucky to have a wonderful team of representatives and product trainers who travel around the world educating and demonstrating the effects of Nordost’s products. As part of these demonstrations, it is our job to find an interesting and diverse selection of music to showcase our cables, power devices, sort system and accessories. Whether at shows, visiting our dealers and distributors or even in our own listening room in our headquarters in Holliston, we are constantly getting asked what music we are playing (or if our audience is not so bold to ask, we can see their Shazams working overtime). So we thought this would be a perfect opportunity to share our favorite songs of the moment. Some may be classics, some may be brand new, some may not even be to your taste, but one thing is for sure …it’s all great music.
Here are some of the songs that we will have on rotation this September.
- Time Moves Slowly (feat. Samuel T. Herring) —BadBadNotGood—Time Moves Slow
- Consideration—Rihanna, SZA—ANTI
- Shut Up Kiss Me—Angel Olsen—Shut Up Kiss Me
- Jeepster-Remastered—T.Rex—Electric Warrior
- Can’t Nobody Love You—The Zombies—Begin Here
- Girls @ (feat. Chance The Rapper)—Joey Purp, Chance The Rapper—Girls @
- Whiskey & Wine—Anthony Mossburg—Anthony Mossburg
- Come Away With Me—Norah Jones—Come Away With Me
- You Don’t Get Me High Anymore—Phantogram—You Don’t Get Me High Anymore
- Impregnable Question—Dirty Projectors—Swing Lo Magellan
