An amazing innovation/Setting moods

An amazing innovation

April 1, 2024

By Paul McGowan From PS Audio

Some innovations and discoveries just happen. Others take time. Lots of time. We’ve been quietly working in the background on something absolutely unique and awe inspiring. 

Eau de Vinyl. A fragrance. But not just any fragrance. This is an immersive scent that captures and enhances the essence, the very soul of what makes vinyl records so near and dear to our hearts. Eau de Vinyl is more than a scent; it’s an olfactory homage to the warmth, the slight crackle, and the deep musicality of vinyl.

How does a scent enhance the audio experience?” Here lies the brilliance of this discovery. A subtle, immersive fragrance—designed to envelop your listening space in a sensory tapestry, merging the auditory with the olfactory to elevate your musical immersion to realms unimagined.

Think of it. Just a touch of de Vinyl, the lights turned low, and the needle drops on Dark Side of the Moon or Kind of Blue. As the stylus touches the groove and the first chords fill the air, so too does your room become filled with the intoxicating essence of the actual performance, enhancing the depth and texture of the music in a way that transcends mere sound.

Like being in an old record store or the musical venue itself—vinyl just sounds better.

We all know that the environment sets the tone.

It’s half the battle.

We’re collecting a list of potential beta testers for this remarkable sensory experience. If you’re interested, check with me on April 2nd and we’ll arrange to have your head examined.

Setting moods

April 2 2024

By Paul McGowan From PS Audio

Ok, I must admit I was a bit shocked to read some of the comments and letters to me about yesterday’s post.

To be clear, it was an April Fool’s joke. (Joke’s aren’t usually too funny when you have to explain them).

But, on the main subject of that joke post—setting the right mood for a listening session or for the building of your audio room—it is a really, really important consideration for your music room. And that’s not a joke.

Mood setting is why we turn the lights on low. It’s why we try and choose the right seating, perhaps the color choices or the artwork that adorns our walls in the listening room.

At Octave Studios (knowing that decor decisions are absolutely not my forte), my wife, Terri and my daughter in law, Tina, rolled up their sleeves and set the mood in every inch of that space: wall colors, rugs, furnishings, lighting, decorations.

It looks and feels amazing. It’s rare when a musician first sets foot in that studio and doesn’t feel like it’s a warm and welcoming space to make music.

Mood setting is essential to musical enjoyment.
