CDF Audio: Is the next-level

ADJ: Moving up to a higher level of sophistication, importance, creativity, or prominence, often used to describe innovative music.

1. This is some next-level shit.

We are Canada’s only all tube “bespoke” audio boutique. We specialize in low power tube amplification and hi-efficiency loudspeakers. We do analog and some heavy hitting digital.

We love skilled engineers and artisans who have developed great sound.

We are very selective and are not easily impressed by the latest fads.

We have a limited number of brands that share our exacting standards of quality.

They are all far more meticulous, dedicated and obsessive than us.

They like us… because we respect that level of purity.

We do not carry any mass manufactured product or promote profit hungry companies.

We are stubborn and opinionated, after more than 25 years in the audio industry and more than 30 years in the recording industry we have figured a few things out.

We are pioneers in this Canadian Audio landscape and are known for being extraordinary at what we do. Ask around.

We are dedicated to musical realism, facts and truth.

We are independent, which means we can say and do what we believe is right and not have to pander to reviews, media and manufacturers.

When you come to see us, call us or reach out in any way… you will be met by one of the owners of the company.

We are unique and go the great lengths to deliver incomparable systems to every client.

We serve all of Canada for many products and have been receiving clients since 2005.

When you are ready for the “next level” we will be pleased to serve you.

FYI: Our full name: “Coup de foudre” literally means clap of thunder, the expression is used to describe love at first sight.

Fruitcake of the month

L. came home from work, put on his sweat pants, made himself a amaretto and coke with ice, went in the theater, sat down and stared at the blank screen for half an hour. Then he closed his jaw, smiled and said "boy that Jennifer did a great job, I…

Hospitality and generosity

I wanted to take a second to thank you and everyone at the shop for your hospitality and generosity yesterday during the digital demonstration. The spread you laid out went above and beyond what was necessary or expected. The champagne and orange juice took it one step beyond. A nice way to…

Courteous and thoughtful

I want to drop you a quick thank-you note for being so courteous and thoughtful late Friday night. I sincerely was not expecting your hospitality, especially so close to your closing. I am impressed that you started up the VTLs for me even though there really wasn’t any time to…
