Wel­come to NOVO!

NOVO - - Editor's Letter -

The hol­i­days present a great op­por­tu­nity to spend time with fam­ily, catch up with friends, share some warm hol­i­day meals, help your fa­vorite char­ity and take a break from work. The hol­i­days are of course a great rea­son to get a lit­tle shop­ping done too. This edi­tion of NOVO con­tains one of my favourite ar­ti­cles to write dur­ing the year, our an­nual Hol­i­day Gift Guide. Dur­ing the re­search for this gift guide, Ge­orge de Sa and I dis­cover all sorts of ex­cit­ing and in­no­va­tive prod­ucts that make per­fect gifts for that spe­cial some­one on your list. It should come as no sur­prise that we also find lots of items that perk up our own ears. Mom and dad - are you guys read­ing this? So kick back in your fa­vorite arm­chair, with a hot bev­er­age in your hand and en­joy this year's guide! I cer­tainly plan to spend time with fam­ily and friends dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son, while at the same time work­ing on de­vel­op­ing two new projects I launched re­cently: Re­frac­tor and NOVO High-End. Re­frac­tor is a mar­ket­ing and com­mu­nica-tions agency, I launched to­gether with my great friend-col­league Laura Wil­liam, de­signed to help au­dio and tech com­pa­nies grow their busi­ness. Re­frac­tor spe­cial­izes in clear con­tent and com­pelling cre­ative. We help es­tab­lished and emerg­ing com­pa­nies com­mu­ni­cate ef­fec­tively with cus­tomers, me­dia, dis­trib­u­tors, and even in­vestors. Some of the ser­vices we of­fer in­clude: web­site de­sign a con­tent writ­ing, ad­ver­tis-ing de­sign, so­cial me­dia con­tent a cam­paign man­age­ment, prod­uct pho­tog­ra­phy, press re­lease writ­ing & me­dia dis­tri­bu­tion, and mar­ket­ing ma­te­rial de­sign - just to men­tion a few. If your com­pany could use any of Re­frac-tor's ser­vices, I would love to hear from you! You can see more de­tails about Re­frac­tor over at www.re­frac­tor­inc.com. While surf­ing the in­ter­net dur­ing the win­ter, I'd like to also in­vite you to check out my new project called NOVO High-End at www.novo­high­end.com. NOVO High-End is an on­line pub­li­ca­tion that ex­plores mu­si­cal ex­pe­ri­ences that are achiev­able through high-end au­dio. With a con­tin­ual stream of high-end prod­uct re­views and fea­ture ar­ti­cles, NOVO High-End ed­u­cates au­di­ences in­ter­ested in the high­est level of qual­ity, per­for­mance and aes­thetic de­light from their mu­sic sys­tems. The NOVO High-End team now con­sists of con­trib­u­tors from North Amer­ica, Asia and Europe and we've been busy rolling out reg­u­lar con­tent more fre­quently than ever. Thanks to this in­terna-tional ap­proach, you'll soon be able to read about high-end au­dio prod­ucts from around the world and learn what au­dio en­thu­si­asts are up to around the planet. I've been hav­ing a ton of fun build­ing this new project and hope that you en­joy it! Wish­ing you warm, happy hol­i­days and a great new year - on be­half of my teams at NOVO, Re­frac­tor and NOVO High-End. See you again in the new year! Cheers,
