We have the privilege of working with one of Los Angeles’ most renowned high-end audio stores, Brooks Berdan. As Hollywood’s premier luxury hi-fi store it has provided stereo equipment for some of the most powerful, wealthy, and influential people in the world; and sometimes it contributes its coveted products to the movie and advertising industry. Recently, the store’s VPI Classic 4 turntable was featured in a Cadillac Commercial with non-other than Steve Wozniak, A.K.A. “the Woz.”
Astoundingly, for a Cadillac commercial, very little of the actual clip is dedicated to showcasing the new car. Instead much of it is focused on Wozniak as he lies on his couch in utter relaxation. As the tagline would suggest, the Woz had “dared greatly” in his life. His passion for computing lead him to co-found Apple and shatter the world with his accomplishments. Now he’s fully entitled to retire, relax, and listen to an extremely luxurious VPI Classic 4 turntablethrough a pair of Sennheiser headphones.
Earlier this year the commercial was featured at the Oscars and publicized to mass audience worldwide. The turntable was loaned by one of our dealers, Brooks Berdan Ltd. You can see their article here. Brooks Berdan has worked previously with Hollywood and has over the years and had a number of their products featured on the big screen.
