About Us and our Brands

Our mission is to support the growth of your Hi-Fi by addressing the fundamentals of system-building.

I have been an audio enthusiast for the last 20 years (more than half my life actually) and have gone through the same journey that every audiophile has. We agonise over many decisions: digital or analog? Tube or solid-state? Pre-power or integrated? Stereo or mono?

We seek advice from many sources, yet no two people hear exactly the same way, or have the same preference. 

Past a certain stage, you may find yourself going in circles, going sideways rather than finding that quantum leap you were hoping from your new amplifier, or dac, or turntable. 

How to break out of this vicious cycle? 

Building a Firm Foundation: A Strategic Approach to System Optimization

This article changed my outlook completely.

It is my belief that, regardless of your audio preferences or the current level of your hifi, your ears and your enjoyment will benefit by addressing these key fundamentals. 

You will then better hear the benefits of that new amplifier, and possibly save money in the long-run!

Our Brands

Between 2017 and 2020, I was based in Europe and travelled extensively, particularly within the Nordics and the UK. It was during this time that I met many interesting brands and their creators as I continued to evolve my own system. I look for products that introduce innovative features, a practical and consumer-centric approach to design, and world-leading performance. The brands here put your dollars into their products, not their marketing budgets! 

Europe's pride is in its culture, and that is also reflected in its Hi-Fi products. They bring elegance in design, simplicity in function and refinement in sound that is hardly found elsewhere. 
And so it is with great pleasure that I bring these brands back to Singapore to share my experience with you.

As we grow, Cornerstone will continue to bring you the best brands from around the world that fit with the ideals we strive for.
