Goodwin's High End

Published information and prices
We are a retail store with showrooms in which we can demonstrate our product and service offerings. And we do not sell via e-commerceas each client is unique, and each client's system(s) and room(s) are unique. So rather than have buttons that you can click to buy something, we prefer to talk things over with you before you make any purchase to ensure that what we are doing for you is the most optimal thing for you.

While we would like our website to be updated the minute anything changes in terms of products or pricing that is not our #1 focus. Our primary focus is taking care of each client and their system. So while we do publish some product information and pricing on our website, please understand that it is done as a public service. We strive for accuracy at all times of course, but practically speaking over the course of each year there are numerous model and price changes and consequently not everything is always up to date every day. Of course if you do find anything that is out of date please e-mail us. And if you would like to purchase a system or upgrade your present system the best thing to do is to call us and/or to visit us and speak to us in person.

» Due to the fact that models change and technology advances regularly, we are not responsible for outdated information or errors on our site. «

For your convenience, we have summarized our manufacturers' warranties.

Custom Installation Products

We design multi-room custom installations that may use products from the following manufacturers. Because of the wide range of products available, and because we normally perform all the design and specification work, we have not individually cataloged custom installation products on our web site. Many of these manufacturers have their own web sites where you can find more information.

In addition to wired systems, we also install single and multi-room wireless systemswhich also may include upgrading your wireless ethernet network so that your system works in a robust manner. Whether for your primary residence, vacation home, or pied-à-terrewe can assist you with finding the right solution from manufacturers such as BlueSound or Sonos.

Alternatively if you have high sonic standards but need either a floorstanding or minimonitor wireless speaker, we have the new Dynaudio Xeo wireless speakers which are an audiophile-grade wireless speaker solution.

Professional Recording Equipment

If you are interested in high end recording or mastering equipment, please direct inquiries to Alan Goodwin at 781-893-9000 x14 or e-mail him. With regard to the various types of equipment that we offer, here is a brief synopsis:

Microphones selection is an involved topic. Different instruments in different acoustic settings will require different microphones and different mic techniques. For more information please call.

If you are looking for a highly neutral microphone preamp we recommend the various models made by Gordon. They make both stereo and mono mic preamps.

For digital recording and storage for our own internal use we are using Samplitude software on a PC.

For analog-digital conversion the the best converter that we know of is the Pacific Microsonics Model Two A-D/D-A converter. Currently the Model Two is no longer available—however if you are interested in one please call for the latest information as we are compiling a list of people who would like one in case they are ever manufactured again.

With regard to monitoring we have a plethora of high end options available in order to tailor everything to your requirements. We offer components such as D-A converters, preamps, power amps, speakers, cables, etc. Please call to discuss your system needs.

With regard to room design acoustics, sound isolation, electrical power conditioning, grounding, etc., please call to discuss your particulars. You can also read more about these topics here.
