Stranger High Fidelity, the bespoke hi-fi retail service launched by Cameron Jenkins of Stranger Records, is collaborating with distributor Sound Fowndations to stage an exclusive event at the iconic Real World Studios this August. Press and audiophiles are invited to join Stranger High Fidelity and Sound Fowndations at Real World Studios, near Bath, for one of two exclusive day-long events on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th of August, 2021. To safeguard the wellbeing of all guests, numbers will be strictly limited and attendance must be reserved in advance.
Cameron Jenkins is a producer, recording engineer and label owner who, having spent many years in the great studios of the world, is keen to share his wealth of professional experience. Guests on each of the two days will be welcomed into Cameron’s space in Real World Studios where he, and high-end audio distributor Sound Fowndations, will showcase some truly exceptional components, combined to create immersive systems that ‘bridge the gap’ between the recording of music in professional studios and its playback at home.
Among these will be the world’s first demonstration of a prototype of Kerr Acoustic’s new K200 loudspeaker, as well as the UK’s first showing of DS Audio’s ‘third generation’ of optical phono cartridges: the flagship Grand Master and entry level DS 003. The event will feature ‘behind the scenes’ insights from presenters from the professional and home audio worlds, including:
Jes Kerr of Kerr Acoustic, who will share his approach to loudspeaker design which has been strongly influenced by his skills as both an album producer and a professional drummer.
DS Audio’s Tetsuaki Aoyagi (via video from Japan), on the principles behind DS Audio’s pioneering and performance-enhancing optical phono cartridge technology.
Guy Pratt, the prolific session bass player whose music credits include Pink Floyd, Roxy Music, Michael Jackson, Iggy Pop and Madonna, who will share tales of life on the road and in the studio.
Nick Franglen of electronic music duo Lemon Jelly, on how an album is recorded, mixed and mastered and the implications for the best possible playback.
Nigel Pulsford, former lead guitarist with 90s rock band Bush and record producer, on the journey from creating a six-times platinum album to putting together a home hi-fi system.
