What Did Cello Have to Do With WorldCom?
Most high end audio enthusiasts know and respect the cult of personality based around Mr. Mark Levinson, especially his last, highly touted brand of gear and AV showrooms - Cello. Back in the wild, late 1990’s, a financier and audio enthusiast named Rick Adams, actually bought both Cello Ltd. (the electronics company) and the Cello Music and Film showrooms in New York and Los Angeles from Mr. Levinson and various other investors. He was flush with cash from the sale of a past technology company called UUNet which he sold to the now infamous WorldCom.
