My Story:

Background:

30+ years Selling Telecom, Data Networking & Phone Solutions, infrastructure City and Building (Fiber Optic) to Fortune 100 - 10,000 companies, Small & Medium Businesses and the Indirect Sales Channel (This means to Manufactures as OEM and Resellers/Dealers/ Tier 1 and Tier two Distribution in the US!

Entered Hi End Audio business in 2008 working for a very well known Hi-End Audio Dealer in Bel Air Ca. Winter of 2009 made the decision to form Kaplan Design, but the seeds of Kaplan Design were actually planted more than three decades in 1976 and a full head of hair ago, after I walked into my friend's house and got my first taste of high-end audio equipment — a pair of Quad  ESL 63 electrostatics driven by a modded Dynaco tube amp and a Levinson JC-1 preamp (designed by the legendary John Curl) and Linn LP12 Turntable. Though some of the details of that visit are pretty vague now, my memories of the music are still as clear as they were the day after — WHAT MUSIC? And so began my own audiophile journey

Like so many others, I have made it my life’s pursuit to find the best possible sound without stepping to the brink of financial ruin. And in three decades as both an audiophile and of late an audio dealer, I’ve learned more than my share about how to squeeze the most sound out a system with money left over for your favorite records, CD's, LP's or digital Hi-Rez downloads. Along the way, I also got the videophile bug in 1997 and have since designed many systems for satisfied customers.

Please feel free to give me a call at 818-984-9651. It would be my pleasure to speak with you about the kind of audio and/or video experience you’d like to create With a comprehensive line of state-of-the art products, I can design a system to virtually any and all customer needs, Short of hiring the band to come to your living room, Kaplan Design caries everything the audiophile needs and  can help you reach your 2 channel audio and Home Theater goals.

Customer Testimonials
ImreH 6/15/12

"100% positive buying experience with Jeff. As I purchased from Hungary, Europe, it wasn't an easy ride for him to manage the sale. We had so many emails to change with each other and I think I was a bit more complicated customer than the average. Jeff was exceptionally helpful and replied to all of my detailed questions very fast. The MSB Platinum DAC I bought arrived in perfect condition as he did serious efforts on re-packaging. I think we'll keep in touch and I'm sure will have more business with each other in the future. Thanks Jeff for your outstanding service."

Jeff thank you for your hard and speedy work I appreciate it. I couldn't have done this without you. You have taken  selling my equipment as carefully as if it was your own. You took time to come to my house many times and took pictures. You sold the My Jadis JP 80MC Preamp, JA 80 Amp's and Jadis J1 Drive CD Transport and MSB Audio Platinum DAC quickly. It was a great pleasure working with you and i was very pleased with your honesty and professionalism.

Dear Jeff,

The Jadis JP 80MC preamp arrived Yesterday with my father in-law he took it with him on his flight from Los Angeles to Jakarta. It arrived in immaculate condition and played its magic sound when I matched it with Jadis JA 80 amps. Thank you for your kind attention to safely packing it and look forward to do business with you in near future

Consignment- Sale

Jeff - wanted to thank you for all your hard work helping me sell my equipment. Over the years I had, to my wife's dismay, accumulated a closet full of used equipment. I just never found the time and wherewithal to do all that's required to list the stuff on Audiogon - take pictures, post the items, deal with prospective buyers, etc. But you've done all that and more - you came to our house, took the equipment, shined them up, had them repaired as necessary and took care of all the details in posting ads and dealing with prospective purchasers. Quite literally, I could not have done it without you - in fact I hadn't done it for years until we met.

My wife is happier now that the closet is cleared (and that counts for a lot in my house) and you've sold a number of the items, to our mutual gain. As a bonus, I used the proceeds to purchase the Wireworld platinum USB cable. And just how good is that cable? Well, even my wife, who has the proverbial brass ears, hears the difference - something I think that's happened on maybe only one or two occasions in the nearly 30 years we've been together

So thanks for all. You've been great to work with and I look forward to our continuing to do so.
