OJAS Listening Room at USM NY


The installation— Devon Turnbull’s first semi-permanent listening room—is an acoustically-optimized space that delivers an outstanding sonic and aesthetic experience.

Sound guru and designer Devon Turnbull - aka OJAS

The design of the Ojas Listening Room at the USM NY Showroom integrates Turnbull’s brutalist audio systems with USM case goods, seating, and other furniture, as well as Kvadrat Acoustics’ Soft Cell panels. Visitors to USM will experience a calming environment in which to contemplate music, liberated from the disruption of outside noise. To help realize this ambitious project, Turnbull tapped expert acoustician Ethan Bourdeau and creative agency ICNCLST. The space is now open to the public with immersive, one-of-a-kind listening sessions. As part of the collaboration between Ojas and USM, Turnbull will offer a curated selection of products from the likes of Denon, Ortofon, Western Electric, Sun Audio, MJ Magazine, Stereo Sound, and others.

A sound experience by Devon Turnbull

Devon Turnbull Ojas is the creative pen name of Devon Turnbull. As a university student studying Audio Engineering, Turnbull started using the name across a variety of disciplines including graffiti, music, graphic design, and clothing design. In 2003, Turnbull co-founded the clothing brand Nom de Guerre with Isa Saalabi, Wil Whitney and Holly Harnsongkram. For the next decade, while primarily working in fashion, the name Ojas was kept alive on sound sculptures Turnbull was crafting for himself and a growing number of audio enthusiasts around the world. With a particular interest in high-efficiency speakers and low-powered tube amplifiers, Ojas audio equipment aims to bring realistic, natural sound to the listener. These products are the result of two decades of experimentation, engineering, and explorations in the audio underground.
