I was at TAVES 2013 and the Casta D8 was my favorite. I went around to nearly every room and listened to some of the most expensive speakers and setups and I did not like anything as much as the Casta D8. They don't sound like a pair of speakers to me tonality wise meaning I can't tell that the audio is coming from a woofer and a tweeter and its making some artificial type sound like many other speakers do. Instead the D8's have a perfect realism that just sounds like perfect frequency response and pin point imaging floating in front of me. The Dynamics in the audio are much better with these speakers at higher volume. When I listen to a big performance with many instruments these speakers remind me of how it would sound if I was at that live event. I went back to the room with the Casta D8's for a 2nd listening session to prove I wasn't crazy thinking these speakers were better than everything else I had listened to and I still preferred the Casta D8. The D8's were in the Mystic Audio room and they were using Blue Circle Audio BC505 DAC, BC307 Preamplifier, NSP power amplifier, BC60X1 power filtration that was debuted at TAVES. The D8's are a steal at that price. Amazing speakers I find them very musical.
