Noho Sound reinvents the high-end audio store
Noho Sound's Alex Roy (left) and Ron Kain (right) are determined to bring high-end audio to a younger crowd, and to more women too. Their New York City showroom opened just a few months ago, and it certainly doesn't look or feel like any other I've seen!
Wall of McIntosh
Noho has more new McIntosh gear than I've ever seen in a store before.
Focal and TAD speakers
On the outside that's a Focal Sopra No2, next to the TAD ME1 Micro Evolution One speakers. On the cabinet top there's a Mofi turntable and a Naim Uniti Atom. Next shelf down, a Musical Fidelity M5si integrated amp and a Micromega M100 amp.
