Lyric Hi-Fi


Lyric Hi-Fi

Lyric Hi-Fi, founded in 1959 by Michael Kay, is one of New York City's original and most respected retail music stores. Lyric Hi-Fi has become synonymous with New York's high-end audio industry.

Kay began his career as an electronic engineer in his native Greece before moving to New York and setting up shop in Manhattan. Before long, equipment designers were bringing their prototypes to Lyric for evaluation, and audiophiles from across the globe were returning on a regular basis to hear the newest amplifier or speaker in the showroom. Kay was even on the cover of "Stereophile Magazine", which recognized his industry-leading expertise.

Today the company still exists in its original location on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. While still specializing in audiophile equipment, Lyric Hi-Fi has also added high-end video equipment and custom home theater installations to its inventory.
