Audiophiles can’t always agree on what tastes delicious. Maybe you like tubes, solid state, digital, or pure analog… 31 flavours can’t do it justice, but there is something for everyone.

Chicago based Quintessence Audio and Michigan based Paragon Sight and Sound worked together to put on an a test drive of four different Wilson Audio Speakers in very different setups. From entry to extreme, analog to digital, there was something that tasted delicious for everyone. WE LOVED this idea and hope to see it again at future shows.… Read the full article
