KLIAV 2011 Part14
Epos speakers, Creek Electronics, super sales, good for bargain hunters! are amazing!
Can’t remember – anyone?
German Physiks loudspeakers driven my Simaudio source and amplification – very 3 dimensional sound, and amazing soundstaging.
Name these gears – NAIM! It was playing some dynamic instrumental tracks – the PRAT is excellent.
Naim amplifiers and sources.
Dynaudio Sapphire loudspeakers, driven by Jeff Rowland amplification. This baby costs U$16,500 a pair. Finishing is superb. Production is only limited to 1000 pairs worldwide. Are you itchy for one yourself?
It is a 3 way reflex loaded floorstanding loudspeaker. The efficiency is 88dB/2.83V/m and weights 40kg each.
Harbeth Loudspeakers – I was hoping that the M40.1 will be demo-ed in the show but to my dismay, it is not even there!!!
MK Sound with dual-subs... nice!!!
ATC Loudspeakers – ATC SCM 50 Anniversary version (active), driven by ATC SCA2 preamplifier. The host is demo-ing some room correction tweaks. With – bass is full and deep, without – wooly and hollow. The bass coming out from these babies are amazing!
PSB Speakers in a home theater setup, driven by NAD Electronics.
Elac loudspeakers from Germany.
Rethm Saadhana and Accuphase amplifier – this setup was playing some instrumental pieces at low volume when I was there. Saadhana is using high efficiency Lowther DX 55 drivers for full range applications. There are 3 other drivers for bass function, hidden in the cabinet to for a 3 driver isobaric configuration, powered by a 120W FET amplifier.
Usher Audio from Taiwan – BE-10 Diamond driven by P-307 Stereo Preamplifier (with separate PSU) and R-1.5 amplifier. Both are solid performers. The R-1.5 is built like a tank, with 150W / channel weighting almost 40kg a piece. The BE-10 is using Usher Diamond DMD dome tweeter. My past experience with Usher has been always positive – definitely something worth looking at, especially if you’re from Taiwan where the price is fraction of the international price!
This concludes the KLIAV 2011 coverage from DIY-Audio-Guide! Hope you enjoy the read!
