For those about to rock

After a good lunch with and old friend and a productive meeting I decided to venture into a very dangerous place – HI-FI Klubben – a small Swedish chain of quality audio/video stores. Now being a avid music fan and a hobby musician (guitarist) I am addicted to (need) good speakers and stereo equipment. It helps being a anything high tech junky as well… This place just make you smile, and needless to say I was on the hunt, again. This time for a speaker dock/stereo for my iPhone. Which they had a really nice version of from B&W. Delivery end of March, which is a long wait. And they also happened to have a nice pair of speakers I so desperatly need. Not sure that my girl will appreciate another pair of large speakers in the house but… Either way, this reminds me of something else, this store has one of the best tag lines/selling line I know –

HIFI Klubben - Tag Line - Bad Sound Kills Good Music

I think this is just brilliant. It is straight to the point, it has attitude, it fits with what they sell and convey with their stores and it hits the target audience sport on. Someone like me for example.

For those so incliend, here is the very reasonable shopping list –

B&W Zeppelin iPod/Phone dock
B&W 683
