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.

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
