New York City is doing it tough right now: almost 12,000 COVID-19-related deaths to date and a healthcare system struggling to cope with new cases. Moved by his adopted home city’s crisis is Mytek Audio’s Michal Jurewicz who will donate 10% of all sales – direct and dealer – to charities assisting frontline COVID-19 workers and musician’s seeking financial help.
The Polish-born Jurewicz has been an integral part of New York’s music scene since the 1980s. He developed the Private Q headphone mixer system during his tenure at The Hit Factory before turning his hand to 8-channel A/D and D/A converters — work that led Jurewicz to establish Mytek as a pro audio company in 1992. Mytek’s first office could be found at midtown’s Skyline Studios. In recent years, Mytek has become of purveyor of fine home audio hardware.
“We make music machines for music, for musicians and for music lovers and have greatly benefited from the immerse influence New York scene had on what we do and how we do it. Now the City is in trouble. It’s time to give back,” said Jurewicz.
A simple, noble message that reminds us that every act of generosity, no matter how small, can help us through these troubled times.
