Vandersteen Quints (if that’s what they will be called), powered by Vandersteen and VTL, cabled and conditioned by Audioquest. Outstanding.
The new PS Audio speakers in an all-PS Audio system.
A new Spendor, maybe 9.6(?), outstanding, with amazing deep bass, and detail. Powered by Chord. The best sounding Boz Scaggs’ Thanks to You I have ever heard, with tons of sonic details I hadn’t heard in that track before.
Mildly disappointed to hear Audio Research’s top gear, paired with some huge Sonus Fabers. I hadn’t seen this model before, six feet tall and obviously hundreds of pounds, like Amaris after some years of steroids. The system was tucked to the side of a small ballroom, in a near-field, with the speakers drastically tilted to converge on a couple chairs in the front row. I didn’t get within 10 feet of this sweet spot, which may explain the somewhat thin and bright sound. I like AR’s house sound, but I didn’t hear the sweet, smooth detail I associate with AR. This was a system I would have really liked to hear in a different set up.
