In Pursuit of Excellence
The Early Years
Even as a child, John Ötvös built tree huts, ground forts, push carts and so on. Not ordinary huts, forts and carts, but ones with details: upholstery, foot rests, painted details, major wheels. A pattern was being established.
As John grew into a man, the early years of his career were devoted to furniture making, cabinetry, creating custom floors, even building a geodesic dome. In 1980, a bit of serendipity brought him together with a hi-fi dealer and the rest... is history.
This is where I spend 60 hours every week. It is also where your personal pair of Mach 17's will be created. A place for everything, and everything in its place.
In 1983 this was the largest PWF commercial building in Canada. At 3000 sq. ft. it utilizes only 3/4's cord of kindling for the heating season. Workroom, dry kiln, spray area, office and garaging for B.T.
The Family Residence In A Country Setting
This is the hand built home of Gail and John Ötvös and family. Completed over a 4 year period, it is passive solar, super insulated and extremely quiet for listening to music.
The Listening Space
12,000 cu.ft. in all, with a good mix of absorption and diffusion to enjoy the full scale of the symphonic repertoire. A collector's pair; the very first Waveform system, upgraded to Mach 13 specifications
