New Krispy Audio Store!!


Recommended Posts

I'm excited to announce the brand new Krispy Audio HQ!

 

Located in Berowra NSW, it's been 3 years in planning (long story). We took the keys early Sept, then single-handedly fit it out including constructing some of the furniture and all of the acoustic panels/treatment. That's taken 4 months just to get to here, and I'm sure this will still evolve indefinitely.The aim was to create a warm, home-like experience with less emphasis on product bombardment, and more on the whole musical experience. 

 

Some of you have already visited, but I'm going to host an official opening on Saturday 10th Feb from 3-8pm. Due to space limitations this will be invite only at this stage pending confirmed numbers. But alas, we are open for business right now and available almost every day by appointment for a look/listen. We will be offering some fantastic specials on opening day, so stand by for these offers shortly. 

 

I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you, whether you've been a customer or not, because it's your support and enthusiasm that has enabled this to happen. The best moments for me are when I see you smile, shake your head in disbelief, or even cry as a result of a demo or something I've supplied that has enriched your life. It's such a great reward for all the effort.

Ha yes it's come a long way! Here's an early pic for everyone. This place used to be a gym. My kids were quick to claim the stretching bar as a skateboard grind bar!!

I usually dislike people using the term "space" to describe a room but that is what you have there ................. a wonderful, beautifully assembled, inspiring space ............. it also looks home like and inviting .......... top marks .......... :party:party

Big thanks for the tunes and all the hospitality yesterday Cam... your new shop is looking and sounding amazing, just love it.

 

The Esoteric + Bespoke + 300B + OMA horns is OMAgawd good and same with your coffee. Just got the Genelecs powered up and all is sweet with the music... good luck with it all.

Show us the coffee machine!

Happily! Like the hifi system, my coffee setup is always evolving. Already got sights on another lever machine :) 

 

Behind the scenes is a Green Bean coffee roaster. I'm roasting single origin predominantly from Ethiopia, but will be adding some variety so I can offer anyone a selection of regions to select from. That brings me to the grinder...

 

I picked up a Mazzer Major which was ex-cafe. It hadn't been used in about a decade. It was in bad shape so I pulled it down. I thought whilst it was apart I may as well have it sandblasted and 2-pack painted (Holden Captiva pearlescent black). New burrs were installed. With my relatively low usage, grind retention was a concern so I replaced the doser with the funnel. I weigh the dose before grinding (hence the scales and test tube caddy), this way I can rotate beans and keep my doses fairly consistent. 

 

Machines - I alternate between the ECM Giotto and Elektra Micro Casa Leva. The ECM is great if I need to get through a few coffees quickly, but my heart belongs to the lever machine.

 

I like to use Reg Barber tampers and just ordered a naked portafilter for the Elektra. 

 

The coffee sack frames above are actually 50mm thick acoustic panels I framed with maple timber, so offer a dual purpose!

Had an enjoyable time at Mr Krispy’s new store last Saturday.  Fantastic room that is comfortable, spacious and excellent for the demonstration of audio equipment.  It’s how a demonstration room should be - simple and elegant with a variety of gear to demo easily. 

 

A highlight was seeing a VPI Prime Signature in the flesh.  Gorgeous gloss  finish on the plinth - superb. Cameron had some vinyl playing on another VPI Prime with a Hana MC cart - lovely. 

 

Oh yes, the coffee was pretty darn good too. :thumb:

 

Thanks for the hospitality, Cameron. Wish you every success with the new store.  Don’t forget that if my numbers come up, I’ll be on the phone to order that VPI Classic Direct Drive.

Why two tampers?

Balanced tamping lol. Nah 2 tampers because the Elektra MCaL on the left has a 49mm basket, and the Giotto has an E61 group with 58mm basket. The roasting machine isn't pictured, I use a Green Bean roaster. Just roasted some Costa Rican beans (something new for me) and may blend with my regular Ethiopian single origin. 

 

I've since sold the Giotto, in the next few weeks I'm hoping the next machine will here (most likely a Profitec Pro 800 lever).

Bit of a delay on the posting, but just a quick thanks to Cameron for his hospitality on Saturday afternoon. Coffee was excellent, but it was the sound of those horns that had me a bit fixated. Could listen to them for hours. The layout was very relaxed, with some very enticing items of equipment on display. Good luck with the venture Cameron.

Yes, OMA have a very interesting background and approach to sound. Any chance you're planning a tour to Melbourne with their speakers @Krispy Audio ? Would love to have a listen, for consideration.

Hmmm possibly. I'll be down for the Australian Hifi and AV Show on 19th Oct and there's a good chance I'll bring these down with me. If that's too far away and you're wanting to do something sooner, I wonder if I can entice you to make the trip up here?

Give the Costa Ricans a bit longer to settle, they can be a abit bright if drinking early.

Should be an interesting combo with the East African.

Any info on the Green Bean Roaster, I'm after a sample roaster that does more than a couple of hundred grams.
