“The last couple of years have seen the comeback of the vinyl long-player, currently one of the most exciting trends in the music industry,”offers Kampschulte. Accordingly, Loftsound not only offers a variety of more than 30 record players but also an extended choice of the newly esteemed vinyl long players.
Markus Kampschulte, the owner and founder of Loftsound near to Dortmund, is a music fanatic and a jack-of-all-trades. He and his brother Stefan are experienced sound engineers and Markus plays the guitar in several bands, which can occasionally be seen on television. The two brothers opened the high-end sound studio Loftsound in 2005 on the premises of an old loft that they had skilfully converted into a paradise for like-minded music lovers. ”What drives us is the love of music,” says Kampschulte. “Our ultimate aim is for the customer to actually feel the music and to experience moments of pure pleasure and relaxation. We want our customers to be absorbed by the music and to experience some authentic listening experiences.” 16 | Issue 39 | June 2016
