Sound Pure LLC

Atlas recently opened a new business venture in the heart of Durham--a combination recording studio and specialty guitar boutique with the professional audio equipment sales and distribution business he began as a Duke undergrad. During his freshman year, Atlas began recording campus events and concerts as a free-lance recording engineer. As that business grew, the young entrepreneur sought out ways to improve the quality of his recordings by investing in high end microphones and recording equipment--by 1999 he complemented his engineering enterprise with on-line equipment sales using profits he re-invested into the business: "I wired my life savings, started importing Neumann microphones and putting them on e-Bay back in its infancy...it was a way for me to have a supplemental business, but also acquire a lot of the equipment for myself..."

Interesting… I might try some of this on my blog, too. It’s quite interesting how you sometimes stop being innovative and just go for an accepted solution without actually trying to improve it… you make a couple of good points.
