Participating in events like Music Matters is the favorite part of my job. The amazement I first experienced in the store that I worked at during engineering school is one that routinely occurs at this wonderful event. It is still a thrill to see the joy, like I had, on people’s faces as they experience the level of realism we can achieve with the assembled systems during Music Matters.

I have been fortunate to be associated with Dan D’Agostino for over 20 years. I started working for him in 1994 and joined Dan D’Agostino Master Audio Systems (DDMAS) in the fall of 2015. After playing a part in many of Dan’s industry leading designs, I am truly amazed at what we are producing at DDMAS today. Dan has assembled a great team of engineers that share his passion and dedication to constantly pushing the state of the art in music reproduction. Coupling advancements in materials and manufacturing techniques with our inventive engineering has created a new line of components that has resonated deeply with music lovers worldwide. 

The passion Dan brings to the engineering side of the business extends to our production group. DDMAS production combines the precision of advanced audio manufacturing and test equipment to the craftsmanship that only hand built components can deliver.

At Music Matters this year, we are featuring something unique that we have never displayed at an event before. We will be using a double stack of our Momentum M400 mono amplifiers. As a balanced design, the Momentum M400 has separate signal paths for the positive and negative signals. In this special setup, we combine these two circuit paths into one, perform the same modification to another Momentum M400 and then couple them together to complete channel. We then duplicate this combination for the second channel. The resulting amplifier stack outputs over 1,000 watts into an 8 Ohm load!. It should be a very compelling presentation.

One think we know, Music Matters is a very popular event, be sure to register. I look forward to seeing you there.
