2 channel stereo

more_vert
Anyone think massdrop should expand their audiophile community/drops with more 2 Channel stereo gear (turntables/speakers floor and bookshelf/power amps/preamps/accessories)? Or does it not make sense for them...

Just bought a pair of bookshelf speakers and an integrated tube amp. Love how all of it sounds. Checked out hear first but no dice. Would've been nice to have the option

It may be the fact that massdrop doesn't actually want to sell you your LAST pair of speakers or your last pair of headphones. They want to sell and then have you coming back for more. ( I'm not complaining I'm just saying that I think that's their business model.) The entire idea of having drop points for example is about the repeat customer. Yes there are people who have multiple sets of room speakers just like multiple sets of headphones and smaller equipment, But it's the smaller stuff (headphones, some fairly small speakers) where the model of getting people to buy and buy and buy again is more successful.

Great 2 channel gear requires in person listening & an opportunity for comparisons; there is an ever shrinking supply of bricks & mortar independent audio shops that can provide this extremely valuable service; an examination of the degree of experience & knowledge demonstrated by true audiophile reviewers & retailers quickly highlights that Drop has not yet earned the right to compete in that arena. Maybe some day, with the right formula of investment in both qualified personnel & business model (direct DTC shipping models already exist - to some small degree of success) however nothing will compare with the opportunity to listen in a comfortable environment.......

Drop's audiophile section, as it is, is a joke.

Maybe dip toe with some really good high end wireless or digital (devialet, focal, dyne, etc.) and see how it goes. Some sound surprisingly good and fit people’s lifestyle.

A carefully curated set of gear might sell well. Focus on headphone users that are 2 channel curious. A great integrated with a MM/MC phono preamp would be a good start. Or a combo streamer/DAC/integrated would be awesome if all the stars aligned. Small stand mount speakers better than KEF LS-50 series with the option to add a sub. These are all products that could be offered without the traditional distributor and dealer markups.

Yes, please. Stereo components are still the best way to appreciate music IMHO 😄
