I just read in the latest issue of Stereophile that Lyric HiFi has closed its doors in Manhattan forever. Can anyone here confirm that it is gone? I believe it started back in the 50's and at one time had two stores in Manhattan and one in Westchester. I have been to the main store in Manhattan and the one in Westchester. The manager of that store threw me out one Thursday evening ( the night they were open late ) when I was auditioning some speakers and amps. He had decided that his salesman had spent enough time with me and told me to only come back if I was going to buy something. Obviously, I never went back and never bought anything from Lyric HiFi. I wonder how much the pandemic hurt them. Even though Lyric did not work out for me, they were an icon and it sad to see them gone.
