  • I refer to Bob as my “audio angel”.
    When I was ready to resurrect my stereo system, I went to a couple of highly recommended high-end audio sources. But I honestly never really felt like I was in good hands with any of them. However, meeting and working with Bob was a truly amazing and joyful experience. He went above and beyond in every way possible. Rarely in life do you ever meet someone that does that anymore. Bob is one of the most knowledgeable people in the audio business. I am filled with much gratitude now that I have music back in my life.
    Consider yourself extremely lucky if you too have the good fortune of having Bob as your audio angle – he is truly one of a kind.

    If you’re relatively new to high-end audio, don’t feel intimidated in calling in an appointment for a listening session at Rhapsody Music and Cinema. The owner, Bob, is about as passionate an audiophile as one can get yet is quite friendly, humble and thoroughly professional.

    Whether you plan on spending a couple thousand or have a sky-is-the-limit budget, Rhapsody’s product lineup is simply formidable. And if one of the brands you’re seeking is carried here, you won’t find a more relaxed place to audition and let the music speak for itself.

    Hero’s come in various forms and Bob was my “hero” on Saturday. I had a room full of 120 people for a presentation and no working speakers.  I called Bob and in a flash he came by to assist. He was pleasant, worked on the problem for a good 30 minutes, then  told me the news that I didn’t have the correct equipment to hook up the microphones to the speaks we had. He was great and offered to help, but the studio I rented the audio from just didn’t give me the correct items.  I would recommend Bob for his patience, knowledge and kindness.

    Bob is a real audio dealer. He cares about the best possible sound for a given price point. His demos are most often a revelation because he knows what he is doing.

Two recent posts on the AudioShark forum-Raidho D3 Upgrade

-Last week I traded the Raidho C3 to Rhapsody Audio (NYC) for the Raidho D3.  Bob is a true gentleman and insured an easy transaction.

-Len, congratulations on the D3’s! Bob from Rhapsody is a real gentleman. He gives it to you straight. No equivocation.

 Bob:
You have no idea how happy I am to have met you and to have discovered the best audio dealer on earth. Your patience with my ignorance and your willingness to go the extra distance is simply amazing.
I’m truly blessed with the best audio in the world (ProLogos and Aurender) and with YOU!  My cup runneth over.

 “One of the most compelling attributes of my Goldmund system is that I can listen to music that I like, not only audiophile recordings, regardless of the quality of the recording, because even poorly recorded cd’s sound incredible!”

-Mark Rosen

“I thought about dividing this (Best of Show) award among several very worthy contenders, but the truth is that one speaker sounded more like the absolute sound than any of the others—and not by a small margin. That speaker is the new Raidho D1.”

-Jonathan Valin, CES 2013 Show Report

“The Kondo room was spectacular, even better than at last year’s (2011) CES. It was seductive and addictive.”
