What People Are Saying About Us
Marc Phillips of Part-Time Audiophile about our room with ModWright Instruments at Capital AudioFest 2019: There’s one reason for this enthusiasm for Fern and Roby, and that’s it right there…enthusiasm. To me, this gear looks great, sounds great, and as I mentioned in my Raven review these are lifestyle products that bond with you and your sensibilities. I get excited when I see this gear, especially in my home.
Art Dudley for Stereophile Magazine [2016 Capital Audiofest Report]: "In terms of recreating music's temporal drive and momentum, the system demonstrated by Virginia-based Fern & Roby...was rhythmical engaging and and very involving overall. There were probably more bobbing heads and tapping feet in the room than at a Linn dealer-training session! (Imagine smiley emoji here.)"
Art Dudley for Stereophile Magazine [2015 Capital Audiofest Report]: "...among the most aesthetically satisfying, cleverly designed, and, above all, fairly priced American audio products in recent memory."
Herb Reichert for Stereophile Magazine [2015 Capital Audiofest Report]: "Fern & Roby make artful-looking, and (to me) an impressive sounding turntable with a 70 lb cast-iron plinth and 35lb bronze platter. I have always believed that most audio gear sounds like what it is made of, how it is made, and what it looks like. I saw their beautiful plinth... and I thought, maybe this will be all show and no go. I thought this might be a lifestyle product...And then I sat and listened."
Dogtown Dish: "There is special glory in the process of making..."
Garden & Gun Magazine, Made in the South Awards, 2015: "with a vibration-dampening cast-iron plinth, a solid bronze platter and reclaimed-heart-pine speakers...each made-to-order system sounds as soulful as it looks."
Dwell Magazine: "Fern & Roby is helping to keep American manufacturing alive."
Wired Magazine: "Analog Audio Nirvana..."
"Fern & Roby's furniture combines modern finishes with a reverence for the history of American industry...With a focus on quality materials, the work is created to be passed down as heirlooms." —Dwell Magazine
