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

CAF 2018: Wells Audio, LampizatOr, Daedalus, WyWires; Way better than golf

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.

Lou Hinkley is the founder of Daedalus Audio, and he urged me on Thursday of the show to be sure to check out his room with Wells Audio, LampizatOr and WyWires. I told him it was already part of my pre-show plan.… Read the full article

ES003351-1024x691

This is a system I could listen to every day and twice on Sundays. Which is exactly what I did at Capital Audiofest. On Friday, I poked my head in for a listen, Saturday, much of the same. Sunday morning I was there first thing to gather some final impressions of the system and snap some photos when I was called away for an urgent show-going responsibility. So I finally return on for my “twice” listen on Sunday, along with some photos — and I am noticing as the show is winding down, that the Daedalus Audio, Linear Tube Audio, LampizatOr and WyWires room is still rather busy.… Read the full article

LampizatOr Pacific DAC preview

By | October 29th, 2018|Categories: Audiostream|

The LampizatOr Pacific DAC makes you forget completely about the fact that it is reproducing the recorded event and unconsciously allows one to be utterly engaged in the music playing.

From an Editor’s Notebook:  Follow-Up Thoughts on the LampizatOr Golden Gate 2 Tubed DSD DAC

By | May 5th, 2018|Categories: Positive Feedback|Tags: , |

Ye Olde Editor, in medias res… (photograph by John Robinson)

No, this is not a major review. It is more of a retrospective and reflection on what I’ve heard in the upgrade of our LampizatOr Golden Gate DSD DAC from its original design to its new Golden Gate 2 version. As it turns out, that upgrade wasn’t merely cosmetic; it was a complete and significant rethinking and redesign of the GG DAC.

This is a summary of the improvements as I’ve heard them here.Read the full article

Lampizator and Daedalus – AXPONA 2018

By | April 17th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , |

by Rafe Arnott

The archeologist Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun buried deep in the Valley of the Kings in 1922. The tomb was, for all intents, and purposes, intact, and became legend for the quantity of golden treasure that was buried within.

Casting my eyes upon the LampizatOr Pacific DAC ($29,995 USD) in all its splendour at AXPONA I was reminded of Carter’s story of discovery (and subsequent curse) as I gazed upon my reflection in its glossy, golden-brass casework, and marvelled at the compliment of 300B, 5U4G, and 6H6P tubes sprouting from its top like a crown.… Read the full article

Warsaw 2017: Sveda Audio with Lampizator, bread and butter

By | December 1st, 2017|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , |

I like monitors. I fancy listening music with monitors and I got this tip, Sveda Audio makes proper recording studio monitors, they measure their creations and get some trully great results. But monitors do need a touch of warmth to get slightly more audiophile friendly and this is were Lampizator kicks in, they had a fantastic synergy during the show.

The D’Appo monitors with, you guessed it, a midrange – tweeter – midrange configuration with 150W of class AB amplification was paired to the Sveda triple driver woofer section with class D amplification while on tha back of the room a pair of big sub-woofers took care of the bottom octave.

Warsaw AV Show 2017: LampizatOr’s Pacific DAC [VIDEO]

By | November 22nd, 2017|Categories: DAR|Tags: , , , , , , |

Glorious! That’s one word to describe the sound spilling from the Warsaw AV showroom fronted by LampizatOr’s latest uber high-end D/A converter, the Pacific. The brass beast made its debut at RMAF in Denver last month before journeying to a brick-n-mortar store demo in Florida, then London and now Poland.

But careful now: here be troubled waters. I cannot with any ounce of confidence attribute this post’s introductory G word to only the Pacific DAC. After all, show attendees like you and I must listen through an unfamiliar room, unfamiliar loudspeakers, unfamiliar amplification, the unfamiliar Pacific DAC and (for this commentator) unfamiliar music.… Read the full article

Suncoast Audio Premier of the LampizatOr Pacific DAC

By | October 18th, 2017|Categories: Positive Feedback|Tags: , , , , |

Mike Bovaird, the owner of Suncoast Audio in Sarasota Florida, held an event at his store on October 14, 2017 to provide a premier demo of the new Pacific flagship DAC from LampizatOr for his Sarasota customers. I flew in on ‘lucky’ Friday the 13th to Sarasota in order to cover the event.

Suncoast Audio is a “destination” type of stereo store according to Mike because it is located in a nondescript business district that you are not going to stumble onto unexpectedly.… Read the full article

RMAF 2017: LampizatOr debuts stunning Pacific DAC in Denver

Lampizator-Featured

Behold The Pacific.

I walked past the room at RMAF without noticing the sign, stopped dead in my tracks, and did a 180-degree turn. I peered through the partially-opened door into the darkness beyond, and noticed all the people jammed inside with their eyes closed swaying to music like strange priests involved in some taboo ritual. I stepped in, and looked over some shoulders to better understand what dark arts were being worshipped. Then I saw it: the idol these former Ascetics had become entranced by.… Read the full article
