The venerable Von Schweikert Audio wowed once again with their Ultra 7 loudspeakers. Big and powerful, yet intimate and refined.
The Triangle Art room used awesome horn-loaded speakers to broadcast their exceptional turntable system, with the combination delivering life-like impact. Brass and strings were chillingly real.
Upstairs one level, the Audio Skies room used the fine Gamut Zodiacs to launch the sound to the audience. TubeTraps were tucked in the corners to control room bloom.
Down the hall in a Cascade conference room, Angel City Audio delivered a convincing performance with the Seraphim loudspeaker. A small fleet of TubeTraps helped complete the symphonic illusion.
Next door, Klaudio showed off a very innovative turntable technology and let Wilson and Pass Labs take the music to the room from there. Amazing combination.
Jaguar Audio‘s display looked as good as it sounded, with the stunning AvantGarde Duo loudspeakers bringing the entire orchestra into Cascade 5.
Spatial Audio Lab‘s room on the 13th floor was a masterclass in simple sonic elegance. The open baffle dynamic dipole X4 loudspeaker sang like a siren and punched well above its weight class. Very impressive.
Invited by Innuos and welcomed by Acora Acoustics, ASC TubeTraps played a large role in establishing the VRC-1 loudspeakers as the undisputed heavyweights at the show. Seriously, 400 pounds of granite! And they truly ROCKED!
A few doors down, show organizer Lou Hinkley’s labor of love Daedalus Audio showed off the reference Apollo 11 and proved that old-world craftsmanship and modern loudspeaker technologies are not at odds.
And at the end of the hall on the 13th floor, Popori Acoustics proved that electrostatic panels can really bring the sub bass. Deep, tight, and tuneful, we don’t know how they do it — but the TubeTraps sure helped.
