Hi, my name is Gerardo Ventura . . .

This site is NOT about playing with sounds and electronics -- instead, we are inspired by the concert halls. Where the live magic of music is, and it enchants. Not by an imaginary reproduction system that should be perfect and... it remains off.
This site is NOT about buying hi-fi products by the kilo -- we design solutions for true music enthusiasts. For the ones that love music and like listening any moment, and musically grow. But we also keep up to date on the best of the market offering, anchored to the tradition of authentic High Fidelity, on the vinyl universe, with a careful eye for new digital technologies, headphones and portables.
Now is the time to browse a catalogue that is NOT a casual one, to discover products and solutions designed for the happiness of your life of listening.
Enjoy your music, discover the news and... don't worry if you have too much questions in mind. It happens to everyone. We always are available to take care of your musical path.

How and why
The answer to che growing trend of many audio systems to turn into an excessively spectacular performance, that deprive music of its own tone. The result is that those systems tends to not satisfiyng the good listeners and audiophiles, or they seems doing it for a short period.
Our systems are designed with a natural balanced result in mind, to reproduce in the REAL special way the atmosphere and the emotion of live music.
Infact, listening is one of the main means to understand the musical language. When the listening make happens using a system that is endowed with bettered features of "musical sensibility", understood as the ability to transmit the intimate and "secret" structure of the reproduced music, it simplifies the meaning sense creations of a musical text.
Who call us
Our proposal is focused to all audiophiles the are looking for an authentic long-lasting listening satisfaction, to ease the growth of the musical knowledge; to all music enthusiasts, to musicians, to music teachers and musicologists; to the expert listener, the collector, and also the listener lacking of musical background, as long as sensible and enthusiast towards the "art of music" - the so-called "good listener".
Come and listen our systems that make easy the development and the full musical comprehension, that represent the thinnest emotive nuances and emphasize the internal flow of music.
PlayStereo is going to plan in the Playstereo Studio informal meetings with guided listenings, to aid and enhance the listening abilities, for any music lover also if lacking of musical knowing. Our systems for music reproduction bring to a better knowledge of music and to a growing of the listening pleasure.
If you love music as we do, you'd like listening in the right way. We would like to thank to all enthusiasts that directly or not, with their suggestions and recommendations do contribute to the development of this project.
"If anyone finds beautiful a music that I can't understand, it's me losing something; if a person which I appreciate musical tastes find beautiful a piece that says nothing to me it's right to persist in listening, because sooner or later will appear the revelation; the music comes when it's time..."
