It’s become somewhat of a regular habit for me to visit Angie’s Audio Corner in Richmond Hill, Ontario. The large selection of products this store offers under one roof is simply a music lover’s paradise. The potential here to discover speakers and components that engage you at the highest musical level is undeniable. After all, it was during my last visit that I completely fell in love with the sound of the Danish Raidho speakers, after listening to three different models. So when I learned that the store was celebrating its one year anniversary I knew I had to be there.
As with the last event at Angie’s Audio Corner, there was a live artist who performed multiple times throughout the day. This time it was local Toronto artist Ray Montford, a guitarist/composer/engineer. His performance consisted of intricate guitar compositions, backed by prerecorded guitar and drum loops. In front of him, sat a ‘sound board’ filled with various effects and loop pedals which required some fancy footwork as he played the guitar. I enjoyed the performance very much as I sat down alongside other like-minded music fans. Ray Montford offered several of his albums for sale at the event, including his latest offering entitled Vintage Is Now. I invite you to check out Ray’s new video below.
During the event, Angie and her staff offered visitors a great choice of food and beverages, which created a friendly, laidback atmosphere. I appreciated the opportunity this created to meet fellow music fans and schmooze with a few individuals from the industry. Naturally these events also present a fantastic time to explore the great wealth of audio products on offer at the store and ask questions about them.
If you live in the Toronto area I urge you to check out Angie’s Audio Corner. It is truly one of the greatest audio shops I’ve had the pleasure of visiting.
