Fritz Grove Loudspeakers

Fritz Grove Loudspeakers

Some trees grow in a jungle, some grow in a forest, and in California, where Fritz lives, the larger more majestic trees (the Giant Sequoia and the Redwood) grow in groves. All speakers in the Fritz lineup are hand-built in the US using high-quality drivers; the prices range from just under a grand per pair up to just over two grand per pair for the REV-5 model. The Grove sits happily in the center of that lineup while still using quality components throughout.

Well to start out, I thought I provide a bit of background about myself. Aside from the occasional post on sites such as head-fi, audiocircle, audiokarma, and audiogon, this is my first attempt at a review. I’ve been a life-long music lover, but never seriously studied music or played an instrument.

About 10 years ago, I began to seriously get into music. Work was becoming very stressful and on advice from my doctor, he suggested spending some dedicated time each day meditating or listening to music. Having tried meditation before, with limited success, I opted for the second choice. With a limited budget, I started out first with headphones and a good amplifier based on some recommendations from www.head-fi.org. It was also during this time I grew to love classical music. As time past and my budget grew, it was time to look into getting a 2-channel speakerbased system. Headphones are fantastic for many kinds of music – especially chamber music – but lack the presence and that “at the concert” feel for large orchestral works or rock music. read more…
