President Bill McKiegan shares history of Dan D’Agostino Master Audio Systems w Ed Masterson

Okay, I’m stepping out of the content of this Video, and asking myself and You the question,  What would make a man, stick with Dan D’Agostino (the man & Highly respected, legendary Geek who started 2 companies),  from 1994 to present, two different companies, like 24 years?  Why would Bill McKiegan take the chance of leaving a great company “Krell” and stand with Dan starting the company “D’Agostino Master Audio Systems” ?

Ed Masterson of Audible Images AV and Bill McKiegan, President of D’Agostino Master Audio Systems have a candid discussion of the history behind the Man who created Dan D’Agostino Master Audio Systems (the brand), Dan D’Agostino (the Man).

They also dive into what’s going on down the pipeline of the company.

Excellent candid discussion.

“Enabling Your Music to sound Incredible Again”

Do you pick speakers or electronics first? – Quick Takes with Ed Masterson

Do you pick your speakers first, or should you pick electronics first?

Whenever someone puts together a new Audio/Stereo system the allocation of budget is a big decision to make. In this Quick Take, Ed chimes in on his approach. Perhaps the old paradigm of 50% towards speakers and 50% for the rest of the system, may be outdated thinking.

Watch the video to hear some solid and experience backed up input on what Ed has learned is best!

“Enabling Your Music to sound Incredible Again”

Audible Images AV talks with Bill McKiegan, President of Dan D’Agostino

So what does this Progression preamplifier that Bill McKiegan talks about, mean to Ultra High End AV folks, as the baby brother to the Dan D’Agostino “Momentum” preamp?  If I want to go all the way in Ultra High End equipment,  would this be a major compromise or a wise choice in my first Ultra High End AV system?

Ed Masterson talks with Bill McKiegan, President of Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems.

“Enabling Your Music to sound Incredible Again”

An excerpt from the video, from Bill McKiegan: “The brand new Progression preamplifier is the second preamplifier that we have produced. It is the baby brother to our Momentum preamplifier which is the flagship part of our line up the Momentum series. This is the first preamp in the Progression series again, it’s sort of the baby brother series to the to the Momentum and it builds on what we have done in the Momentum series audio wise circuitry and audio wise mechanically it is very similar.  The lessons we learned on the momentum side we stole as much as we could and then put it into this new package in the Progression series.”
