We would like to introduce you to Jörg Keßler, Auctionata expert in
High-End Hi-fi and Sound Systems as well as Vinyl.

Jörg Keßler founded the Hamburg music publisher and mail-order record retailer ars!music in 1989. He is known as one of the pioneering producers of vinyl re-releases of original master tapes for audiophiles. With the sublime-sounding Henry Mancini records "The Pink Panther" and "Hatari", the company launched the very first RCA Living Stereo LP re-issues in 1993, paving the way for a vinyl comeback in hi-fi quality. Another ars! high-quality pressing that went on to receive global acclaim was that of the legendary Santana album Abraxas.

Mr. Keßler played a major role in the launch of the cult radio Tivoli Model One. He also discovered Norwegian artist Kari Bremnes and made her an international star, particularly among audiophiles the world over. The customer magazine "ars!music – Das Magazin" and website are some of the most popular sources of information and products for hi-fi and music fans.

Jörg Keßler lives and works in Hamburg.
