Mark Bayoff an audiophile and huge fan of Analysis Plus cables stopped in to show and let us have a listen to one of the best and rarest violins in the world. The violin in the picture is a Stradivarius made in 1701 (from the “golden age”, between 1700 and 1720). The name of the violin is the Markees. The Markees returned from loan to Leung Kin-Fung of the Music Chamber of Hong Kong. Antonio Stradivari was born in Cremona, Italy in 1644 and the quality of his violins sound has defied attempts to explain or reproduce. Mark also brought in other violins, one was from Stradivari’s teacher, Nicolo Amati, which was worth $1.5 million. It was interesting talking to Mark about the sound quality of a Stradivari violin and the sound quality of Analysis Plus cables. The girl in the picture is Mark Markel’s daughter.
