LampizatOr Pacific Balanced DAC review

By | May 29th, 2019|Categories: Audiostream|

The ability to present the 3D-image of a recorded vocalist like Frank Sinatra in a startlingly realistic spatial and timbral manner was one of many initial sonic impressions of the LampizatOr Pacific Balanced DAC that, like harshly-lit craters on the lunar surface when viewed at night from Earth, stood out in bold relief to me compared to other DACs I am familiar with.

Lampizator meets AudioNec | High End 2019

By | May 27th, 2019|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , |

High-End 2019 show coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

Lukasz Fikus of Lampizator listened to the big AudioNec Diva XL speakers and fell in love with them, so for this year’s show, it made sense to show up with AudioNec.

AudioNec’s Francis Chaillet and Herve’ Brasebin brought their new line of speakers to the show, the EVO, and being more precise, the smallest of the lot, the EVO 1.

This is a modular design, with the “Duopol DS” full range driver that acts as tweeter and midrange is a very interesting and almost revolutionary design.

Cube Audio Nenuphar Loudspeakers, Teutron TU 2A3/50S-1 Amplifier, Lampizator Big 7 DAC

By | May 18th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

When I visited Pass Labs’ Nelson Pass at his Sea Ranch California hideaway, I was completely taken by his studio reference speakers; which, consisted of Cube Audio 8″ F8 Magus full-range drivers mounted on an open vertical baffle. Mounted face down on a small horizontal baffle about 5″ above the floor was a slot-loaded 15″ Eminence woofer. The woofer was separated from the wide-open full-range driver by an LX Mini active crossover and driven by a First Watt F7 amplifier. I told Nelson I could retire a happy man with that system.… Read the full article

AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by the LSA Group

by Paul Elliott

Lou Hinkley’s musical epiphany came at the young age of 12. When he heard some Booker T recordings, he just knew his path had to involve music.  Lou became a musician and then started building speaker boxes for bands.  He developed his skills as a speaker builder and as a cabinet maker, developing quite a reputation as providing the best sounding speakers for music venues.

In 1992 he transitioned into the home audio genre, aiming to build to the highest standards. … Read the full article

LampizatOr, Von Schweikert, MasterBuilt – Florida 2019

LampizatOr, Von Schweikert, MasterBuilt - Florida 2019

LampizatOr had plenty of new product on show here in Tampa. Firstly, their new amplifier the Pacific A300 ($16,000 USD). Although being driven with a VAC Preamplifier in this system, many questions have to be asked. Is it an integrated? Is it a power amplifier? It’s both. Features of the amplifier include 300 watts per channel of Class A/B power output, 0.45v input sensitivity across four inputs. Each input allows custom configuration and labeling on its large OLED display, but don’t fret — there is dimming.… Read the full article

I’ve been waiting to meet (and listen) with Jeff Wells of Wells Audio for some time. The electronics created by Mr. Wells, are scary good with familiar pairings from Daedalus Audio, LampizatOr, and WyWires.
