hear at axpona and ready to buy some records for starters.,.
selection not so great this year, picked up only 2 lps
on to the ps audio room
horribly warm and veiled sound from their proto speakers ...
on to the primaluna / goldenear speakers room featuring the new triton 1R
sound is huge and bold, deep bass from the powered integrated subs. however overall the sound is flat and harsh in the precious midrange.., so glad i passed on the speakers...
the vana room was sounding nice and clear featuring moon amplification and audip physic speakers. a sound for sore ears after the bombast in the mcintosh and wilson audio rooms..,
the van allstine gear also sounded nice and frank’s electronics look much better in person. possibly held back by the choice in speakers though
Tough to judge bad sound in a show/hotel room. If it sounds good, though, it's probably not luck.
the atc system has extraordinary transparency, very monitor like, however coherence, imaging was not the best and they would be too fatiguing for me. sorry i call em as i hear em...
AVM OMG bad....
modwright, nice sounding room
Gamu / larsen. best so far
the mofi room sold me on their one step process
featuring some wharfdale bigger box 3 way monitors that looked like harbeth c7s. sounded clear and very forward
The new Lintons perhaps?
Living vicariously, please keep em coming.
esoteric room. AMAZING! big avanre garde like horn speakers. absolutely enormous sound.
very bizarre sering new gear made by “western electric”. the gauder akustic speakers sounded ok definitely a ringing in their ceramic drivers, western electric needs an industrial designer pronto
Same. I’m very interested in those Wharfedales. Probably my next speaker.
nice conversation with my friend geoff poor of glenn poors audio who introduced me to ron sutherland. he was genuinely appreciative that i own and love his phono preamplifier. a truly nice gentleman. all the best to him and geoff.
listening to the totl luxman class A amp sounding super smooth driving the harbeth 30.2 with grace and authority
how important is the recording? listening to a system comprised of marten speakers snd zesto andro amplification dod not make the strained chorus in Babylon sisters sound any less noticeable
just listened to the single driver voxativ zeth tower speakers and wow, so naturally detailed and life like again i can see why people love the single driver designs. they were sold as a system with the preamp that employs DSP to balance the frequency range but wow what a sound especially on well recorded female vocals. impressive!!!
an impressive looking system demoed by george of kyomi audio with a kid audio turntable, gamut towers and massive jadis dual mono power amplifiers. impressive body and weight.
very good transparent sound coming from some gingko audio stand mount monitors at a reasonable price point. driven by a triode corp of japan tube integrated. these amps are the resl deal and should be much more popular in the us.
lots of music in the hallways on the 14th floor. this is awesome!
now playing- the klipsch forte iiis. i may be here for a while..,,
ill go back and check...
i have to say the klipsch forte iii sounded great! a very popular room too. high energy and big bold presence yet surprisingly smooth. great for classical music and non audiophile rock. the enclosure colors the sound and they are not audiophile speakers but i enjoyed the heck out of them
more speakers with ceramic drivers (revel). very distinctively additive sound . listen before you buy by all means. you’ll love em or hate em
I would have loved to get the L590axii.. just too much dough for me.. in a few years, when I get a bigger room to fill, I can see a 590/Cornwall combo working very nicely. For now I'll continue to LOVE my L550axii.
