    I certainly wish him well in a VERY tough market with less than 800 new church/classical organs sold in the entire USA last year. Perhaps he can do what others like Verdin couldn't do. I certainly like his idea of a very large audio system.

      How did you come across the number 800?

      From Arie V, posting the Music Trades info a few months ago: "For Institutional organ, the number is pretty depressing. The number for year 2018 was 720 units, down from 790 units in 2017 (820 in 2016). That represents a 9% decline, year to year. Going over the statistics, institutional organ sales have gone down year over year for 2 decades."

    Good luck. So you are 17 years old?

          Allow me to be clear about this...this enterprise is building digital simulations of pipe organs....there is no pipes apart from sampled sounds that originated with pipes.Calling them "digital pipe organs" is a misnomer at best.

            Come on. Cut the kid some slack. He is not the first and will not be the last to call a digital organ a 'digital pipe organ'. I mean ... VPO ... what do you imagine the 'P' is for? Your point is taken but it really wasn't necessary to point out. I'd be real surprised if anyone thought or anyone will think that pipe organs can be built for $8K.

              I wish him well, too. Here in Australia I know of two firms concentrating on custom-built VPO’s, one near Sydney, and the other in Melbourne. But he needs to be well-informed about market opportunities and good business decision-making to avoid problems.
              That a 17-year old has a passion for pipe organ music and the instruments to create such music is a matter we should be very pleased about. We should give him all the encouragement we can, without giving the impression that it will all fall into his lap.
