Micah and I have been on an internet hiatus for the past while, refreshing our minds and working on more fulfilling things than getting lost in the sauce of bit-sized info.

That aside here's an excellent article about our operation written by a champion of East Tennessee's entrepreneurial and business scene, Mr. Tom Ballard.

Guest Post by Carti Venandi

Many entrepreneurs love curating items of enticement, from fine art and property in exotic places, to quality equipment and merchandise. No matter the possession nor appeal among this broad spectrum one thing remains true for all items: it enhances the human experience in one way or another.

Now, if you’re a music and high end audio lover looking to augment your personal audio experience, or someone who enjoys the finer things in life looking to impress guests, look no further than OMA.

Oswalds Mill Audio provides high-quality audio listening instruments made from sustainably sourced materials, with an unparalleled design philosophy and execution that will most definitely elevate your soundscape. From their website:

our products are made by hand in Pennsylvania, using locally sourced, sustainable hardwoods, slate, cast bronze, iron and aluminum. We are the only company in the world making solid wood loudspeakers using the same joinery craftsmanship as the finest furniture, and we are the only company that has ever used conical horn speakers for home audio.

Boasting the same source of wood as Martin Guitars, steel infrastructures, and aerospace grade hardware; quality provisions like these easily catch the attention of any avid audio listener and/or creator. 

Check out some of their amazing offerings on their site and check out the video and article about them on Bloomberg.

A lot can be gleaned from quality designs out there including inspiration for your own projects. Creating speakers isn't an inaccessible and certainly not impossible task. If you have an idea, let us know and we'll help you see it through.

Ramona - OwlSpec

I've known this upstanding individual for many years through little league baseball and the formative years of high school.

Each of us followed our distinct paths in the meantime to pursue self-development and self-actualization. And like all great friendships, a few months ago we reconnected and picked up like no time had elapsed since we last spoke. 

Now operating under the aegis of OwlSpec, Eric York is a man on a mission. He's an inspiration to MB and myself and he's a strong piece of the foundation that is Knoxville's music creation and production scene.

He's a true collaborative player and a man carving out his space in the realm of audio engineering and the crafting of music in the Southeast and elsewhere. Matter of fact, he introduced me to another ambitious Knoxville entrepreneur whose sound you can already find below, Carti Venandi

So, let me introduce you to a sliver of the ambiance that OwlSpec is delivering daily. Check out his work and the work he's instrumental in creating / producing for other local artists around Knoxville, TN, and the Southeast.
