Reference Mono Power Amp
Announced in 2020, this is the best sounding Spectral power amp ever. Majestic sounding, effortless macro and micro dynamics, super pure. Put simply everything just sounds more real and natural. Now in 2021 production is up and running--and this is finally starting to ship for stock.
Spectral DMC-30SV Series 2
Officially introduced in September, 2020, this is Spectral's new top performing preamp, and the perfect mate for the DMA-300SV which is Spectral's top stereo power amp. Or their DMA-500SV mono amps. Or of course any of their amps past or present.
Basis AJ Conti Transcendence
turntable with Superarm
We are indeed fortunate to be living in the Golden Age of analog. And nothing epitomizes this more than the Transcendence with either the Superarm 9 or the Superarm 12.5 playing your treasured records! This is available in a number of different configurations such as single arm, dual arm, etc. For example, the reason that some people choose a dual arm setup is to have one dedicated arm for a stereo cartridge and the other for a mono cartridge. In fact you can use either the Supearm 9 and/or the Superarm 12.5 in various configurations up to a maximum of four tonearms on a turntable.
Now that we have have it set up for demonstration in the store and have listened to it, we have to say that this is an amazing sounding turntable! Rather than just being another really good sounding turntable/tonearm combo, this is something very special. It is much more reminiscent of listening to a recording as opposed to listening to a record--and that distinction is really the highest level of praise possible of an analog front end. You are cordially invited to bring in your favorite vinyl and hear it for yourself. Prepare to be utterly amazed!
Avalon PM1 & PM2
These may be small but they pack a surprising punch. The heart of any speaker is the midrange--and these speakers certainly excel in that department.
The new Avalon PM line are all clean sheet designs. While at first glance they may look like the Avalon designs of the past. Inside they are built with new high performance drivers which are mounted in an all new constrained-layer damped cabinets utilizing four different composite materials.
We know that some people simply must have a speaker with a wood finish to go with their decor. The woodworking here is done to a high level of craftsmanship, so if you have a fine home these will fit right in. Available in your choice of woods, including birdseye maple, curly cherry, walnut, etc. Other finishes such as Polychrome Light and Polychrome Dark are available as well. In addition there is the option of either a satin or high gloss finish.
Speakers are of course the most personal taste choice of any component. So you really need to come in and hear them for yourself. Many who hear them simply won't choose anything else.
Vinnie Rossi L2
If you love the sound of tubes, you should definitely check out this new preamp from Vinnie Rossi. The beauty is more than skin deep that's for sure!
Available in either black or silver.
This new speaker is here and it sounds great! If you are looking for a wonderful sounding speaker but don't have room for a large speaker you should definitely check this out. This is the most compact floorstanding speaker we've found that really does it all in a small room.
When you see it in person you truly realize how elegant it is. The subtle carbon fiber weave which you can see through the clear coat is exquisitely well done.
This new DAC is here and offers excellent value for such a high end DAC. It includes the Mosaic interface for streaming music. Plus it is available with or without an optional built-in headphone amplifier.
*Optional built-in Headphone Amp available
Rockport Atria II
These are least expensive speakers of the Rockport line, essentially the same midrange and top end as the Avior II but with smaller woofers. So that means that they are very artfully voiced and designed. The cabinet shape is reminiscent of the beautiful lines of fine saiboat hull design. There is an art as well as a science to great loudspeaker design which Rockport has spend many years refining for your listening pleasure.
The stock finish is a gloss black, but they are available in any automotive paint color you wish. You may have seen other speakers with a painted finish--but probably never have you seen any at this level of beauty. There is a high level of care and hand polishing lavished on each pair that really gives an elegant impression when seen in person.
INNUOS ZENITH MK3
With an Innuos music server you have the choice of running either the Roon or the Innuos interface. Available in either silver or black, the Zenith Mk3 also allows for CD ripping and library management.
