Our Vancouver boutique-style store is a low-key place where you can relax and enjoy listening to music. Come into Pat’s Audio Art and you will notice a variety of colors, shapes and beautiful wood finishes. Decorators can choose equipment that will blend in perfectly with anything from postmodern to traditional furnishing.
Stay a bit longer and you will find many unique and intriguing products — for example, Nola Loudspeakers from Holbrook, New York. Nola does not advertise with magazines, but are still reported to make some of the most life-like music at various Hi-Fi shows. Most speaker lines budget as much as ⅓ of the selling price for advertising, by not having those expenses, Nola is able to offer substantially better build and design than their competitors. Compare Nola speakers to B&W, Definitive Technology, Paradigm, Totem, Wilson Audio, DynaAudio, Harbeth, Magico, and you will hear more natural sound with an accurate portrayal of the soundstage. Time and time again, Nola speakers are featured at Show Reports as having some of the best sound at Audio Shows around the world. Although less well known since Nola does not advertise, you get a recognized well design speakers that will out-perform the competition. Don’t follow the crowd, get uniqueness, exclusivity and value.
Enduring music systems that revive your soul and enrich your life
You may wander into our lower sound room where you will find hand-build vacuum tube amplifiers from Jadis, a French company. Using some of the best polypropylene caps with the best resistors, Jadis stands out as the best build tube amplifiers with the best electronic components (most of which come from France like Vishay, Solen, Mouser). Again, compared to Audio Research, Conrad Johnson and MacIntosh, Jadis is just a better built and sounding vacuum tube product. For the best in amplification, it is Jadis. And Pat’s Art Audio has Jadis amplifiers, DACs, Phono Pre-amp and Pre-amplifiers.
